Conscious Girlfriend is the #1 global leader in dating and relationship education for lesbians and queer women. Women from 18 countries have taken our classes! In this crisis time, we’re coming together as a community to learn and connect. If not now, when?

Extraordinary times demand extraordinary response. Therefore, we present the first-ever:

Conscious Girlfriend

Virtual Academy 

April 2020

A Month of Connection, Support & Skill-Building

for Women Who Love Women - Via Zoom!

 

 

COMMUNITY CONNECTION EVENTS

For now, Tuesdays & Saturdays, 12:00-1:30 PST & 6:00-7:30 PST.

(Plus some additional free offerings from community members on other dates!

Please scroll all the way down to see the full list.)

Conscious Connection for Friendship or More

(Group and pair conversations)


We’ll start with some heart-opening, grounding exercises as a group, then pair up (yes, Zoom lets us do that!) for some brief, structured, emotionally connecting conversations one-on-one. You’ll have a chance to interact briefly and privately with 6 or more different women. Then we’ll come back together for a loving community closure.

 

Saturday, April 4, 12:00-1:30 PST

Saturday, April 11, 6:00-7:30 PST

Saturday, April 25, 6:00-7:30 PST

 

 

Attend one, two or three – there will be different women each time!

 

 

 

Connection for Spiritually-Oriented Women

(Group and pair conversations)


Whether you're Buddhist, pagan, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, "spiritual but not religious," an empath, healer, yogini, in 12-step or have some other path, this group is a chance for you to meet up to 6 other women and share 1:1 conversations on themes like: How can your spiritual beliefs and practices keep you centered in this time? How can you serve others? How can you make meaning of this crisis? What are the gifts of this moment, as well as its challenges? 

 

Saturday, April 11, 12:00-1:30 PST

Tuesday, April 14, 6:00-7:30

Tuesday, April 28, 12:00-1:30 PST

How to Call In Your Soulmate (Even If You're Quarantined!)


Sheltering in place alone doesn't have to be lonely! In this group we'll discuss how to form nourishing connections with women online, why this crisis can actually help you connect, and how to release internal blocks that might be keeping you from the partnership you want. We'll do some pair exercises, too. 

 

Tuesday, April 7, 12:00-1:30 PST

Saturday, April 18, 12:00-1:30 PST

SKILLS FOR HARD TIMES

Use your unexpected free time to become a more Conscious Girlfriend! 

Audio and video recordings provided for all classes.

Solo Sexual Enlivenment

(It's Good for Your Immune System, and Fun, Too)


How can you release shame and more fully celebrate your unique erotic self? How and why can fantasies enliven your solo sex life? How much pleasure can you tolerate without orgasm? What if self-pleasure doesn't have to be about orgasm at all - or, what if you can have more kinds of orgasms than you ever imagined? Learn about your erotic blueprint, your sexual brakes and gas pedal, the role of fantasies, and more. There will be no nudity or sexual touch during the call, but there will be lots of suggestions for fun, enlivening "homework" if you choose!    

 

Tuesday, April 21, 12:00-1:30 PST

 

 

From Conflict to Connection in 5 Magic Steps 


Everybody's stressed these days, and that can lead to rocky times either internally, or with the people you love. In this class we’ll cover and then practice one of Conscious Girlfriend’s key tools for working skillfully with strong emotions: the SCORE process. SCORE works equally well in all relationships. Best of all, you can use it on your own, even if the other person isn't interested in learning this tool. We’ll do real-life demonstrations and group practice so you can really start to internalize this life-changing skill.  

 

Tuesday, April 7, 6:00-7:30 PST

 

Speak & Be Heard, Listen & Connect: Communication Power Tools


Learn why most common communication styles actually create distance rather than closeness, and how to shift that so you're both more likely to be heard and understood, and also more able to listen to others. Shift from shut-down, anger or defensiveness (yours or someone else's) to comunication that really works! We’ll do real-life demonstrations and practice, so you can leave this class with upgraded skills to use immediately.    

 

Saturday, April 18, 6:00-7:30 PST

 

The Art & Science of Loving Boundaries & Requests


Do you avoid saying No for fear of hurting someone or making them mad? Do you struggle to ask for what you really want? Most women do -- but ironically, they actually keep us from the closeness we desire. In this class you'll learn why boundaries actually create intimace, and how to make clear, specific requests that others actually want to fulfill. And we'll practice and do demonstrations, so you'll be able to implement these new skills for avoiding resentment and creating closeness in all your relationships.

Attachment Healing Intensive

(comes free with monthly membership)

 

The three-module Attachment Healing Intensive course, which normally sells for $97 on its own, will teach you to understand and heal the #1 cause of lesbian relationship problems: what happens when one woman wants more closeness, and the other needs more space. The bad news is, almost all couples have this challenge. The good news is, you can re-wire your brain for greater flexibility around both intimacy and autonomy -- resulting in drama-free, low-conflict, trusting and secure connection. If you’re in a relationship, the new skills you’ll learn in this class can restore easy love! If you’re single, you’ll have light-bulb moments about past relationships, and gain tools for a healthy, connected relationship in the future.

COMMUNITY OFFERINGS FROM MISHA SAFRAN

Un-Hiding Your Talents with Misha Safran

 

Description:  

Do you have a talent you know about? Do you have a talent you have yet to uncover? Maybe you are somewhere in the middle of those and just a bit shy to share! In these four weeks of April we will begin to explore. We will create a safe space for each of us to move into our creative beings, encourage and inspire each other to take specific steps to building upon an existing talent or to doing something new! We will then take turns sharing our feelings about the process as well as claiming our victories as we experience them. And, finally, we will embrace and celebrate each one of us during the last class where each person can share their final product or latest progress!!! Creativity may include, but not limited to, cooking, photography, drawing, painting, learning a language, playing an instrument, writing jokes or poetry, song writing, etc.
