In How to Love an American Man we learned if we're craving love from a partner who will adore the person we are and honor all we're capable of, we need to grow fully aware of that in ourselves first.

Females are catching up to men at work...and with our rising dominance in society, relationship dynamics are shifting big-time. This is painfully evident to many of the 60 million single women in the US, but based on my research and interactions with my readers, many women--single and committed--are struggling more than any generation before us for fulfillment in love. As readers of How to Love an American Man witnessed, if a woman seeks a mate who adores who she is and participates in her potential, she an awareness of those in herself. Securing a partnership that's healthy and thrilling can be a simple matter of framing our self-perception more accurately.

That's why on Sat., Oct. 20 in NYC, I'll present

Identity & Intimacy:

A Weekend Quest Accessing Your Inherent Beauty, Heart & Lovability. 

Join me, author Kristine Gasbarre, and my panel of thinkers on male-female dynamics, self-image & self-actualization, and how to respond to our culture's growing demands for people who want to find love. Keynote by renowned psychotherapist Ken Page, LCSW, whose "gift theory" has been featured in Cosmo, O: The Oprah Magazine, The New York Times, Match.com, WebMD, the Discovery Channel, and his column, "Finding Love," on PsychologyToday.com.

i&i highlights:    

  • Celeb attendees: Francesca Maxime, TV news anchor/author of Rooted: A Verse Memoir and Ashley Spivey of SayNoToCosmo.com & well-loved former contestant from ABC's The Bachelor.
  • Swag bags valued at $225.
  • Breakfast & lunch - details on the side.
Through presentations at i&i, guests will:
  • Gain insight into today's romantic psyche. How to Love an American Man contrasted relationship values from two different eras: our fast-paced, sometimes self-concerned generation and our grandparents' more traditional time. At i&i, we'll explore which is effective in relationships today, and the behaviors that keep us from feeling satisfied in love.
  • Identify the truest parts of the SELF that many women have been socialized to hide or deny -- through our upbringings, our careers and disappointments in romance. It's in re-discovering the traits that make you, YOU that we can finally discern the kind of partner we need.
  • To re-activate these most authentic traits in order for a woman to live fully as her true self, thereby naturally attracting the partner who will honor, complement and highlight her unique gifts.
Find the full itinerary, menu and schedule of Saturday's speakers in the side panel.

I can't wait to see you at identity&intimacy.
