Gresham, OR Workshop Sept 29-Oct 1

Whether you’re frustrated with your current relationship, feeling lonely and wishing for more love or you just want more skills to deepen and enjoy those intimate moments this workshop is for you.
  Have you been looking for a way to finally get what you want? More love? More acceptance? More peace? Maybe even some more fun and joy? The things you’ve done to fix this so far haven’t worked, have they? Being able to work on ourselves and learn how to have the relationships we deserve requires the safe and powerful environment that the ConneXions Intensive Workshop provides. You’ll be surrounded by people who just like you have the same desire to grow and experience love and joy and sweet intimate relationship.
  • Ever feel like you are stuck in a relationship loop?
  • Does it seem like you are just going through the motions of a relationship without real, intimate connection?
  • Constantly having the same arguments that cycle around again and again?
  • Feeling unheard and misunderstood, instead of seen and held?
  • Do you wish you knew what your partner is really saying? What they really want or need?
  • Do you feel more alone in a relationship than when you were on your own?
  • Are you seeking something more but you don’t know what?
  No relationship is perfect. And you can learn skills!  Creating, maintaining and sustaining a successful relationship can be daunting if you don’t have the skills and compassion to help you work through the normal problems that arise in forming deep connections with others. Growing any relationship can be rewarding and exciting even though, at times a bit mysterious. Knowing how to sustain connection, communicate well, and resolve problems with people is the key to being healthy and living a more vibrant life. “In all honesty, I was not looking forward to coming to the ConneXions weekend but I knew it was important to my husband, Dave. It was our 23rd Anniversary so I put my excuses aside and made the decision to go. I am so glad I did. I felt closer to Dave than I had in over twenty years. This workshop was incredibly powerful for me and it greatly increased the connection I have with my husband.” – Jen G

Powerful Resources

  • Find out how your personal history affects who you are and what to do about it
  “I attended the ConneXions Intensive Workshop with my husband and went away with a better understanding of him and of myself. I learned new ways to listen and speak, great reasons for making growth in this area important in my life, and hope that with the workshop’s materials to take home, my learning will continue.” –– Jo Ann H   The environment at ConneXions Intensive Workshops can allow you to transform who you are, thus deepening your connection with others.

The Workshop is a Journey Through exercises that you share with others, we will discuss what it means to Wake up, Grow up, and Show up. You will explore some of your internal history, the stories you tell yourself, and learn how they influence the way you chose your relationships, and also the reason that you can get drawn into power struggles. Did you know that relationship power struggles are a natural part of love? They’re also a great opportunity to deepen your connection and make the relationship more satisfying and loving. Within your disagreements are found important clues about how you can transform your connection into something even richer. You will learn skills to enable you to bring up these issues in a more authentic and positive way. “The ConneXions workshop offered a wonderful and insightful deep dive into human relationships – what it means to connect and what keeps us from connecting more fully. I left the workshop clearer on what I want from life and how I can go about getting it. I also formed the beginnings of several meaningful relationships with the other participants. Highly recommended!” – Peter S       When you choose to join a ConneXions Intensive Workshop you are guaranteed:

Self-described “recovering Engineer” Howard Staples went to work on himself over 20 years ago to rebuild his own skillset in the emotional realm. Immersing himself in Buddhism, A Course in Miracles, Psychodrama, Gestalt and Rebirthing, he reconnected with his own feelings and learned how to express them in away that feeds his primary love relationship and has made his world joyous and sweet. Now he loves helping others take back their own sense of self-ness and peace.
