Workshops for Life and Relationship Design
As part of my vision to share what I know to empower people to create lives and relationships as unique as they are and free themselves from cultural norms, I have developed several workshops that allow people to practice tools that can help them in this process.
Find out why it can be so tough to be single in a culture that seems obsessed with coupling! Learn about singlism, matrimania, and couplemania – three newly coined terms that help us understand how cultural messages impact us. Practice a tool that can help us move beyond those messages to live happily ever after whether single or coupled or anything in between.
That is the core of my workshop: Understanding how singlism as a stereotype got into our heads, how it is influencing our lives, and what we can do about it.

I am very passionate about empowering people, especially singles, to create relationships that serve us rather than conform to cultural expectations. In our current culture, we seem to be limited to one particular kind of relationship: A romantic coupled relationship. Thus, we are bound to one strategy for relating: Coupling. However, as social beings, we can thrive more fully if we develop a network of support, which may – or may not – include a coupled relationship. To develop such a network, we want to investigate the cultural strategies to understand what needs we are trying to meet. We can then brainstorm other ways to meet those needs, giving us choice, which empowers us to relate so we can thrive.
That is the core of my workshop: Moving beyond cultural norms to create relationships that suit us, not the norms. If you’d like to know more about this 2-hour workshop, check out this pitch (link opens a PDF) or contact me if you’d like to invite me to your group!
If you want to find out, in an experiential way, what life design is all about, my Intro to Life Design workshop is for you. We briefly cover the four steps of the design process – vision, assessment, strategy and timeline – and actually start the process. The workshop might give you enough material to incorporate life design into your own life.
