Lesbian Couples Date Night: Create The Relationship You Desire, Instead of Running on Default

Lesbian Couples Date Night:
3 Secrets to Create The Relationship You Desire, Instead of Running on Default
Thursday April 25, 6:45pm-8:45pm

This event is for you if:

* You are a woman in partnership with a woman

* You are ready for a different kind of date night where you really get to connect with yourself and with each other in an environment where your love is celebrated.

* You want to create a relationship that grows from your desires rather than running on default

*Your relationship is already amazing OR you're on the struggle bus and you are ready for NEXT LEVEL LOVE!

We've all grown up with examples for love relationships from parents, friends, family members... yet few of these examples are really a match for what you want to create and as sure as you are that you'll "never get into another relationship like that again," you find yourself repeating old patterns.

In this Lesbian Couple's Date night you're going to explore what you really want to create in your relationship, individually and together. You'll face the old pattens that have been unconsciously running in the background, and learn how to consciously create new ones that inspire intimacy. And, you'll walk away with a 3 minute practice that has the power to put you both back into "honeymoon phase" every day.

Lesbian Couple's Date Night Guidelines:

* Your RSVP is your commitment to attend, we have space for 15 couples

max so please be sure to change your RSVP at least 48 hours in advance if you are unable to attend to open up space for another couple

* Wear comfortable layered clothes, bring a water bottle, notebook and pen

*Although this is a group setting you will spend most of your time exploring guided activities with your partner.

*Chairs will be provided

Meghan Neeley & Erika Cederdahl are the founders of Rainbow Love Retreats. They create transformational workshops, retreats, and coaching for lesbian, bisexual and Queer women in relationship. They live together in San Francisco, CA and practice all the tools they teach you in their relationship as well.
