The Energy Dance In Your Relationship
Learning to master the Energy Dance is essential whether you are in a relationship or not, and whether you're in a straight, gay or bi relationship. Masculine and feminine energies are not equated with male and female bodies. Every person has their own balance.
When two people in relationship lose touch with their respective feminine and masculine forces, the life of the relationship begins to suffer. It begins to "flat-line".
When the masculine backs off from his power and the feminine closes off from her love (and vice versa), the sexual chemistry in relationship dies.
It's akin to a ballroom dance where no one is leading and no one is following. There is no chemistry, no charge, no invigorating dance. It feels flat and boring and you trip over each other.
When the masculine steps into powerful presence and the feminine meets the masculine with an open loving powerful heart, there is aliveness, movement, deep connection and invigorating energy!
In other words, it takes two to tango. In real life, who leads and who follows is a constant back-and-forth dance, not pre-assigned by gender.
When a woman feels protected, held, adored and seen by the masculine, she feels safe. She feels safe to relax, soften, and open. This allows her to powerfully surrender, to open her heart and body, to sink into the depth of her love with her partner.
Similarly, when a man feels respected, appreciated and admired, there is nothing he will not do for his partner. He feels the depth of his protective power and is emboldened to step into deeper presence. He shows up, tends to her and bestows upon her his deep adoration. He energetically holds her with his masculine stance and she is inspired to soften and melt.
How is the Energy Dance in your own relationship? How is the masculine/feminine dynamic between you and your partner?
In relationships, there is often one partner who wants more. More intimacy, more togetherness, more connection. Just as often, the other partner is pulling away, trying to get some space and have more freedom. This creates a push-pull dynamic, where you feel like you either have to pull for everything you want, or you feel pulled on all the time from your partner.
This is the result of an ineffective dance between the masculine and feminine inside yourself, and inside your relationship. When you change this energetic dynamic, you change your relationship!
The Energy Dance Workshop addresses problems like these:
You spend a ton of energy fighting to get what you want (the push-pull dynamic, or "power struggles")
Even though you might still have a "functional" relationship, where you take care of chores, kids, mortgage, what-not, but there's no life, no sizzle. Sex feels like routine or you don't bother at all.
Your man isn’t fully present and there with you
Your woman isn’t open and satisfied no matter what you do
Lack of passion and aliveness in your relationship or your own life
You're baffled by what men or women really want
Feeling unsure of yourself as a man or a woman
You don’t feel safe to fully surrender and open
You lack the confidence or "umph" to go for what you want in life
You talk and process, and talk and process to try and figure out your problems
You talk more about sex or connection than you actually HAVE sex or connection
My privacy is important – do I have to ‘air my dirty laundry’?No, absolutely not. You get to decide what and how much you share every step along the way. We create a very safe, relaxed, light-hearted environment within which to learn new ways to be in relationship.
I’m busy. I just don’t have time for this.Yes, we certainly know what it’s like to have a full plate. After going to work, dealing with kids, cooking, cleaning, shopping, and paying the bills, what time is left to focus on your relationship? We want to invite you to ask yourself, “What are my priorities? What’s really important for me and my family?” After having worked with hundreds of couples, we can state clearly that you don’t have time NOT to invest in your relationship. Just think how much time you’ve wasted in unproductive arguments that went nowhere. Don’t waste another precious moment.
Money’s pretty tight right now…Yes, we understand that can sometime be a challenge. But trust us when we say, the price of admission is A LOT less expensive than legal council! It's not free, but it's a very affordable way to get relationship coaching. You get 9 hours of coaching and education for the price of 1.5 private coaching sessions. Commit to making it happen; go for creating a miracle. Or call us if you need help to get creative, we’ve helped many people make it happen.
Is one workshop really going to make a difference?Yes! We’ve stopped counting how many people have been totally floored at the transformation from this one workshop. Have a look at the testimonials on this page. Of course we're not pretending that this workshop will fix all your issues and solve all your conflicts in a day. Your relationship is an ongoing practice; conflicts will keep arising. But after this workshop, you will have a different understanding of conflict, and new practical ways to address conflicts.
I don’t like big groups.We create a very safe and intimate environment for you. You will not be the first one to have attended who had that concern. Much of the time, you will be in smaller groups, or with your partner. Not to worry, we take good care of you. And if you really do not want to be in a group setting, contact us for private coaching.
We’re not even sure we want to stay together.Lots of couples have come to Give Yourself to Love on the brink of divorce and totally turned their relationship around, and gotten their husband or wife “back”. Some have gone on to create loving, cooperative separations. No matter what you choose with your current relationship, you will leave feeling much more confident in your ability to create a positive relationship experience going forward.
We just met. We’re in love. We don’t have any problems.Congratulations. How wonderful. What you’ll learn in this workshop will give you practical ways to KEEP that in-love state going, instead of spiraling downhill after 6-12 months. Remember, most relationships started out with lots of love and no problems. If you have the right tools and foundation, it is completely possible to keep it that way.
We’re not doing THAT bad. We’ll get support later…That’s what our friend Steve said before his wife crossed the Tipping Point and she was off with another man. He figured “we’ll deal with the problems some day”. Except, some day never came, and now it’s too late. Pay attention to the warning signs, and DO NOT wait till “some day”.
Do we have to be there for the whole day?Yes. No exceptions. Give Yourself to Love is a whole, coherent experience. If you can’t make the entire training, change your schedule or book another time that works better for you.
My partner doesn’t want to come – what do I do?Commit to attending anyway, no matter what. YOU want a fabulous relationship, yes? YOU know you can’t keep going as you have been! Your commitment is the best way to invite your partner to join you. You might even say to your partner, “I’m committed to doing what it takes to make this relationship amazing. I’m going to Give Yourself to Love. I really want you to come. Would you be willing to come with me?” If your partner has reservations, you can invite him or her to contact us. Sometimes speaking with us can help build trust and mitigate fears and concerns. But if your partner insists on not attending, attend by yourself. We have seen many people unilaterally turn their relationship around.
Are we going to be sitting on our butts the whole time?Well, you will be sitting down at times🙂 But no, the workshop not a lecture where you’re sitting on your butt for hours while we drone on. We know that you learn much better when you are engaged and actively participating in exercises, so you can actually experience what we are teaching. Our relationship training is continuously shifting from class-style teaching to break-out groups, to paired exercises and large group activities. At one of our trainings, Steve (an engineer) said, “This is the first workshop I’ve ever been to where I haven’t looked at the clock once!”
We can’t make it to the date listed here.When you register for Give Yourself to Love, you have the right to reschedule your date one time to another training.
Can I get my money back?We do not offer refunds for purchased tickets. You may get a credit to other LoveWorks services, such as private coaching or other workshops, by mutual agreement with LoveWorks.
