GENERAL QUESTIONS

Absolutely. Budding new couples are very welcome and encouraged at this event.  We can’t think of a better way to start a relationship than to begin at the get go with the kinds of evolutionary conversations and practices we’ll be dialoguing together about during this workshop. Taking a close look at the relationship DNA that had your previous relationships end is step one in creating a new relationship that doesn’t repeat that pattern.

This workshop is intended for couples but could be very valuable for anyone not currently in a relationship that wants practice with how to handle some of the difficulties that come up when in a relationship.   It’s always the right time to address in yourself any patterns that might be playing themselves out in an unhealthy way in your relationship. This is true whether you happen to be single right now or in a committed partnership.

If you are single right now, come to this workshop to learn how to create a conscious relationship right from the start. Come ready to unearth the blindspots and core patterns that are likely in the way from you finding true love and partnership.

Learn how to heal insecure attachment whether you are an avoidant type who tends to run away or need space OR whether you are an anxious type that tends to cling and hold too tightly to love.

Develop an evolutionary context for why you are in relationship to begin with that will inspire your future partner to want to take that journey alongside you.

The short answer is yes. If you are in a relationship that’s having trouble, come to this workshop to rise above conflict and the patterns that create it and get step-by-step instructions on how to de-escalate and re-ignite your relationship into the love story it was meant to be.

Maybe you sometimes feel frustrated, insecure, unseen/unheard, smothered, under-nourished, or not completely loved the way that you want. Maybe you’ve even decided these feelings are a “normal” part of relationships.

Come to this workshop to rewrite your relationship DNA and break free from some of these patterns and with your partner you can find the hidden symmetries that keep you thinking your relationship is out of balance.

Discover how you might be unintentionally leaking safety and trust out of your relationship.

Learn to use conflict as an opportunity to connect and grow as you learn how to dismantle your projects and safely heal old hurts.

There are some notable exceptions in cases of abuse, psychological or mental challenges, a history of physical or chemical abuse, and severe trauma which we would encourage and recommend getting 1:on:1 support from a trained professional.

During the facilitated sessions of the workshop Bryan and Jennifer will be working directly with everyone in the room. At various times they’ll be using what’s happening in real time in specific individuals lives to make the material real and alive for you.

 

Given a full workshop schedule and the limitation of having only 3 days together and a group of other people, there will not be any ‘formal’ private sessions offered. However, there will also very likely be impromptu conversations happening in and between sessions with opportunities to bring more of your personal challenges to the room.

 

If this is of special interest for you, you may want to participate in the 3-Months of Group Calls starting after the workshop to help integrate what you experienced.   When you register you can add that option OR at the workshop you can indicate you’d like to join.   AND if 1:on:1 sessions are what would help you most we’d love to give you that extra support.

Once you register, you’ll receive a link to the Relationship DNA Love Profile which is a survey that we’d like everyone to fill out prior to the event. In it you’ll be asked some questions about your current relationship patterns and history around love, sex, and relating.  You’ll also see questions which will help inform the themes that are most alive in the group and creating our facilitated time together partially on that basis.

Fill this in honestly and thoughtfully and have between 1-3 people that you are closest to give you feedback on these same questions so that you end up with a very accurate Relationship DNA Profile. We use this to triangulate what those patterns are and how they are affecting the people closest to you so we can take a deeper look in the course.

The only thing you absolutely need to bring is yourself with your open heart and open mind heart, but the following might be useful:

  • A Notebook or Journal and something to write with
  • A water bottle or travel thermos  for the toasty beverage of your choice so you can sip it and keep it with you for the day

Here is a general schedule for the event.  The Evolving Love workshop takes place Friday – Sunday. We will begin our morning session at 9:00AM and our afternoon session at 2:00PM.  You will have approximately 90 minutes for lunch which you can take at a nearby restaurant. We will likely take 2-3 shorter 10 minute breaks throughout the day.

FRIDAY/SATURDAY/SUNDAY

  • 8:30 AM – 9:00 AM  Registration (day 1 only)
  • 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM Morning Session
  • 12:30 – 2:00 PM Lunch (optional $25 lunch, or bring your own)
  • 2:00 – 6:00 PM Afternoon Session

If you are able to come to 70% of the event, coming late or leaving a bit early we’d encourage you to go ahead and come join us.  Ideally if you schedule that during our lunch break from 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM you will miss the least amount of the material.

If you have an obligation that can’t be rescheduled during the course of the event you can talk to our volunteers about finding a quiet room or can leave the site.  We will likely audio record the event and can make those recordings available.

We will be audio recording the event and editing out all personal details to protect the confidentiality of the people present.  Much of this event will be experiential and not present in the recording. If you register and pay for the event and can’t make it we can make these recordings available to you.  Let us know by writing to info@evolvinglove.us and we can likely give you access to these recordings.  In the future, when we decide to offer our online program and finish our book on evolving love we will definitely let you know about that as well.

This is an important question. You’ll want your partner in your corner and perhaps even attending with you.   As partners in life, in love, and in business we totally respect that financial decisions are often made in partnership. What we recommend is for you to think about and express to your partner the difference you feel this Evolving Love Workshop will make in your lives.

How will a small investment of your time and energy lead to a whole new outlook on your life and your interactions? How it will improve your feelings about yourself? How it will improve your feelings about your partner? What new doors will open for you? And how all of that will contribute to a more fulfilling life.  Then sit back and just listen. If your partner would like to contact us to have an exploratory call they can schedule that call with us by click here Schedule an Appointment’

Of that we can be sure…of the rest, it’s all really based on what you decide to bring and the lens you choose to experience this event through. We encourage you to take accountability for the quality of your experience and gleaning the maximum amount of value that is meaningful to you.

We currently have a 3-day cooling off period from the date of purchase during which time you can request in writing to get 100% of your money back. There is also a cancellation period which ends approximately 1 week prior to the event.  If life circumstances prevent you from joining us you can receive a full refund, minus 5% in fees.  The event has very limited space so after that date, we can not issue any refunds as we will have reserved your spot and will not have time to fill it.

You can also read our full Participation Agreement which has this policy in it.

We’ve specifically priced these workshops at a very affordable rate to allow for people of nearly any income to join us.

It’s our belief that an investment in the quality of your relating with others has a bigger impact than almost any other area you could spend your attention on.  We get it. We’d like to offer you a new way of thinking that about this that will change the way you relate to yourself around money.

Instead of focusing on why you can’t have what you want, start focusing on HOW you can and what the cost of not investing in this area will be a few months or years from now? Calculate how many hours of repeated patterns, headaches, hurts, and disappointments it would take to facilitate this kind of change…it would certainly be worth way more than that.  Notice how much more empowering that is then feeling like you are trapped or don’t get to have what you desire. Focus on how you CAN.

Next you can use a credit card to make the payment or can ask for the people in your life to help sponsor, loan, or gift you a ticket to come.

This event will be a unique experience.  We do not have another event scheduled in this city at this time so we encourage you to try your best to make arrangements to be there for these dates.

 

It is entirely possible we will begin to hold this type of event again but it is unlikely to be anytime in the near future in the city or location that we are holding this one. If there’s no way for you to make it but you’d like to attend one in the future, the more we know about people wanting it the more we’ll be inspired to schedule another one.   Email us at info@evolvinglove.us to let us know your name, email and the city you are from.

If you are asking the question it could be a good idea to explore getting additional 1:on:1 support. We’ve created an Align Your Love Life Session, which is a private 90 minute session with Bryan Franklin and Jennifer Russell that you can signup for prior to your participation in the event for an additional fee. During this session you will begin the process of understanding your current Relationship DNA and rewriting some of the unconscious patterns that could be unwittingly running the show in your relationship.

We recommend combining these. After participating in the session and event you can explore with Bryan and Jennifer whether you’d like to continue to work 1:on:1.

The event is short and in that time we can’t unwind and break through every relationship pattern that might be creating difficulties for you in your relating. Often getting some supportive on-going help to reinforce what you’ve learned and really have it live inside your relationship can mean the difference between going back to the status quo and permanently evolving your relationship.

It is an incredibly powerful experience to have someone dedicated and on your team in support of you evolving love in your life. We believe that investing in the way you relate has a bigger impact on your quality of life than almost anything else you could focus on.

If you are a couple in bliss, you are already committed to having the best relationship possible. Come to this event to practice the conversations and practices that will raise the consciousness of your relationship and help it stay that way.

We’ll teach you the distinctions that turn relationships from ordinary to extraordinary, and guide you as you co-create the evolutionary context to your relationship, up-leveling the way you relate and diffusing most conflict before it starts.

Enjoy deep experiential exercises to keep your relationships hot, sexy, and nearly drama free.

Come dialogue with us about your deepest questions surrounding love, sex, and intimacy and take on a deep consideration for your relationship that will take you into the next level of your development.

This event is appropriate for any particular orientation or relationship structure as we will be exploring concepts that are universal to being human and wanting to give and receive love.  We have a lot of experience coaching and counseling people in many configurations of relating and we have participated in many of these configurations ourselves and can bring real wisdom and direction to navigating these waters as any relationship style brings it’s own set of challenges.

We are not certified therapists, psychologists, or psychiatrists. We are lovers first and foremost with a relationship that was built brick by brick as we discovered conversations, practices, models, and structures of relating first hand and through research with other experts and other couples whom we respect followed by working over the last 7 years both formally and informally with a variety of individuals and couples as coaches, mentors, and guides.

In addition we’ve been guest speakers on this topic at dozens of events, interviews, podcasts, telesummits, and courses. You can check out a few of those on our www.evolvinglove.us website.

Our biggest credential, and in our minds the only credential of any meaning is the exquisite truth and beauty of our own relationship and the inspiration it’s served in so many people’s lives who’ve known us best.

While we are not implying that we are done with growth in the area of love, sex, and relating, we are saying that we’ve discovered some incredibly useful distinctions and understandings along the way that we are devoted to giving to the people who we know and love as it is our belief that there is no greater work than healing love on this planet.

We will be recording the event and editing out all personal details to protect the confidentiality of the people present.  Much of this event will be experiential and not present in the recording.

 

If you register for the event and can’t make it put still paid for the event.  Send an email to info@evolvinglove.us and we will send you access to these recordings as soon as they are available.  We’ve also developed an online Evolving Love course that contains some of the material covered in this program which we’ll let you know about as soon as it’s launched.

We call this “Special Snowflake Syndrome,” where we believe something in our lives is so unique, nothing will ever help. At some point, you’re looking for an excuse not to join. Our desire is to show you that it’s not true, that it’s just an excuse that is likely to be holding you back from some of the things you really want most in your life.

The mindset we recommend for anything that you are looking to learn is one of open curiosity and of actively finding the value and wisdom that’s there.  This can be the difference between thinking you have all the answers and then likely staying in the same place weeks, months or even years from now OR fully taking this opportunity to get every inch of value and having it change your trajectory and life forever.  The difference between these two experiences is always up to you! We’ve noticed life’s a lot more rich, evolutionary, and fun with the later than the former.

This event is appropriate for both people who are not in a relationship currently and for those who are in one.  We would love to have you with us as it’s always a good time to practice at the conversations, processes, and distinctions that help you navigate the specific challenges that arise in relationship.   Day 2 and 3 will have some exercises that are designed to be done with partners AND we will have plenty of singles in the room to pair you with.

DAY 1 – Personal Inner Work (Frameworks & Relational Skills)

DAY 2/DAY 3 – Interpersonal Work (Frameworks, Conversations, & Practices)

 

Enrollment in the Workshop is for one person only.  You can however register for multiple people, including registering for your partner by clicking the ‘Register Now’ button and on the shopping cart page increasing the quantity to 2 or more.

For ease and simplicity, we decided to enroll people individually as some people come to this workshop and are single or are in a relationship but their partner(s) are unable to make it.

If you do purchase more than 1 ticket for you and your partner please make sure to give us their name and email so we can send them the preparatory emails, access to the Love Profile, and access to our Bonus Program: Daily, Weekly, Monthly Practices.  Send that to info@evolvinglove.us and we will make sure they get all the details they need.

 

The space is limited and is best suited for a group of between 20-50 people.  If we have more than 50 people wanting to register we will start a waiting list and consider planning another date.  Let us know if you tried to register and it was sold out by emailing us at info@evolvinglove.us

Yes.  Spending 3 full days with us will be a very enlightening experience with a lot of value to glean regardess of your relationship status.  We will be covering things like how to prepare for partnership which is valuable at any time and how to know if the person you are dating is ‘the one’ for you and how to unwind some of the persistent patterns that get in the way of you finding relationship…amongst many other juicy topics.

Day 1 – Covers the personal inner work, relational skills, and frameworks you can do regardless of your status

Day 2/3 – Covers the INTERpersonal work, practices, skills, and frameworks you can do with your partner

 

Here are some of our favorite books on love and relationship that you might want to get a copy of to read before or after the course:

 

  • The 5 Personality Patterns: Your Guide to Understanding Yourself and Others and Developing Emotional Maturity by Steven Kessler: An incredible book that maps some of Wilhelm Reich’s observations about human development and core wounding patterns alongside the psychology of personality. During our deeper dive retreats we often give people copies of this book. It’s a gem!
  • Gene Keys: Unlocking the Higher Purpose Hidden in Your DNA by Richard Rudd: Probably my favorite spiritual / relational treatise book of all time. This book is a blueprint of humanity’s evolution through the 64 shadows that we express into the 64 gifts that those shadows become as we evolve and integrate onward into the 64 Siddhic states that represent our next evolutionary leap. It’s incredible and the kind of thing you want to digest slowly a few pages at a time
  • Love’s Hidden Symmetry: What Makes Love Work in Relationships by Burt Hellinger: Another book we’ve been deeply influenced by as Burt is considered the father of Family Systems and Family Constellations work. The title tells you that for every conflict that is seemingly ‘your pattern’s fault’ there is a hidden symmetry that is holding the dynamic in place. It’s incredibly dense and another book to be read slowly but it’s rich.

Integration, to us, is a key part of any experience that’s designed to re-write and transform you.  We’ve designed several aspects of this experience to help with your integration so that what you learned becomes real for you afterwards:

  1. The Evolving Love Book/Manual.   Much of what we talk about is detailed there and can be read afterwards to help integrate.  It’s a robust manual that is the beginnings of a book we will likely publish that corresponds also with what you’ll be learning.  All of the frameworks, conversations, and evolving love practices are outlined in detail in this manual for you to do once you get home.
  2. BONUS PROGRAM: Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly Workbook + Email Sequence.  This workbook contains the practices we recommend that you do in your relationship to really take these concepts we experienced together and make them real.  You’ll all of these practices in writing where we break down the practices and conversations step by step PLUS a series of emails you will receive in your inbox weekly that will remind you to continue to do these practices at specific intervals.
  3. The Evolving Love Facebook Group.  You will be added to the Evolving Love Facebook group during our event which is a place where you can ask questions, share stories and insights and receive some guidance and feedback from Bryan Franklin and Jennifer Russell in the areas of love and relationship.
  4. OPTIONAL 3-Month Integration Calls: After the workshop we will be holding group integration calls once a month for 3 months so you can get laser guided coaching and talk through how the material is living on in your relationships.  When you register there is an opportunity to add on this option and you’ll have another opportunity at the workshop to sign0up if you’d like to participate in these calls.
