Workshops on Relationships


Reconnecting with Love Languages

Staying virtually connected is easier than ever in our modern world. However, virtual connection seems to come at the cost of truly to our partners and doesn’t account for the emotional and physical needs in our relationships. We seem to forget how to love and be loved by our partners. Disconnection doesn’t have to be permanent. We can recommit to our relationships by better understanding our needs and the needs of our partners through our love languages. With our love languages we can begin to reconnect to our partners in new, effectitve ways and improve our communication in how we need to be loved. Join Matt Sutera, MA, in this free workshop of self-discovery and a greater connection to those we love through the use of Gary Chapman’s book, The Five Love Languages.
  • Discover the 5 love languages and determine your own
  • Form new connections and reconnect with your loved ones
  • Increase self-awareness of our own emotional needs
  • Become more comfortable with communicating our needs

COST:  $10

Workshops on Authenticity


Be Yourself Imperfectly

Most women desire to be strong and confident but wrestle with feelings of self-doubt and inadequacy. We place high expectations on ourselves, seeking perfection and acceptance. As a result, we make ourselves busy, but can’t keep our inner-critic at bay. Instead of feeling confident and capable, we feel like we’re failing. We become frustrated, stressed and worn. What are we doing wrong? What can we do different? Brave your authenticity by facing your fears, releasing expectations of perfection and building on the foundation of who you truly are in this half-day experience.


  • Face your inner-critic compassionately
  • Create your self-acceptance mantra
  • Develop engaging communication skills
  • Discover your unique personal brand and own it

COST: $49
