Readiness & Attraction / Workshops for Singles Who Want to Succeed at Love

Sunday, January 9th from 10 - 4:30
and
Sunday, February 13th from 10 - 4:30

Please join me, Relationship Coach Candace Brindley, for 2 days that will change your life!

  • Do you dream of finding your soul-mate and building a life with intimacy and meaning?
  • Are you tired of choosing / attracting seemingly the wrong people - investing your heart and soul in relationships that don't last?
  • Are you wondering where & how to find this person?
While it may seem that loving relationships should come naturally to us, I can assure you that the road to rich and lasting relationships is not commonly known. Happily, our families and past experiences have given us a few clues, but the real deal breakers have been kept in the closet. Most people don't know why their marriages fail and fall into blaming others and becoming life long victims.

This workshop will put an end to serial heartache. You will learn the foundation of successful love relationships, the skills for finding love and being in relationship, and be personally coached to realize the value of this information for your own life. You will have the confidence you need to succeed!

Readiness & Attraction is for men and women who want to succeed at love.

Enrich Your Relationships by Candace Brindley

Who would we be without the joy and drama of our love relationships! Healthy relationships give our lives richness and meaning and allow us to self-correct, heal and grow. Sometimes, in spite of our best efforts, our relationships challenge us. As the divorce rate indicates, our old practices of dating and mating are failing us. While we diligently seek out education and training for all our worthwhile endeavors, no training exists that supports relationships. What we learn instead is how to be ‘miserable ever after’, based on behavior modeled by our parents and relatives. In this column I will be offering a new skill set -- relationship knowledge, tips, tools and techniques for singles and couples which I invite you to experiment with and possibly add to your own relationship toolkit.

My own son’s beautiful wedding in Bermuda recently inspired a rush of insights on romance and the challenge of finding the ideal partner. Since singles become couples, laying the groundwork for success while single clearly presents the golden opportunity to custom pick your perfect match.

It’s interesting that more people are single now than ever before in history, partly because there’s less of a social and/or economic need to get married today. When we do decide to commit, we choose people who we believe will fulfill our need for security, love and emotional support. This is a loaded expectation for which we all need special training.

The training kicks off with dating. There are two types of dating, recreational and intentional. Early ‘recreational’ dating should be viewed as a learning laboratory; a fun chance to learn how to date, where to meet lots of different people, and to notice how you feel with different kinds of people.

Intentional dating, or setting the ‘intention’ to find one’s life partner, is very different and deserves introspection and planning. Before you begin, take time to discover your personal vision and purpose, establish your core values, and decide what your absolute requirements are. Establishing your individual and shared visions is such an important part of the equation that Dr. John Gottman, a world renowned relationship expert, maintains that when couples’ visions are not aligned, they have a 69% greater chance of relationship failure.

While dating, be aware that it’s easy to fall into any one of many traps that will derail your search, resulting in not only lost time, but also hurt and resentful feelings. One of the most common of these traps is known as the ‘Mini-Marriage’ or ‘the one night stand that never left.’ Chemistry takes over, placing a lock hold on your thinking, and without making any conscious decisions or verbal agreements, you slide into an exclusive relationship. Shoes appear under the bed and toiletries show up in the bathroom. Rushing into a relationship relying on this chemical cocktail of infatuation, more often than not, results in an abrupt ending without explanation. After all, you didn’t really know that person, did you? We fall into this trap when we are desperate to be in a relationship… any relationship, and believe that we can force it into being the right one for us.

When we balance our heads with our hearts, we slow down and date a variety of people, having fun without being exclusive. We take plenty of time to test the relationship. You may also find that journaling after your dates helps keep your head clear and slows down the rush to become a couple. If the relationship is meant to be, it will survive the time it takes to measure it against all of your personal criteria. Dating is not a race - it is a journey. Don’t rush to win the booby prize.

Make sure you are the ‘chooser’ when you date, and don’t abdicate who you are at the core. I like to use a Readiness Assessment for Singles, when I coach, that targets all the key areas to address before embarking on the dating journey. To get started, you can ask yourself, “Would I date me?” This exploration is actually very empowering, profound, and even fun to do. Again, the key areas to probe include a full description of your life including your vision, values, life purpose, your requirements, needs, and wants. When you are fully aware of who you are and what you want for your future, you will choose partners with whom you will enjoy a lifetime of love, friendship and respect. Finding someone whose vision and values are compatible with your own is a great harbinger for relationship success.

In my next column, I plan to discuss why so many relationships begin with such deep passion and feelings of connection only to fizzle out in a few years time and how we can prevent that from happening to us.

Next Talk: October 6th, 10 am

A senior executive who attended my last seminar told me, "My ex-husband and I went to a therapist for years, but we never heard the simple, practical, common sense concepts and skills that you introduced at your talk. You really break it down so anyone can understand it!"

That's the beauty of coaching singles and couples! Coaching is for healthy, normal singles and couples who are motivated to strengthen their relationships and take responsibility for their the attitudes and choices that affect their success.

The Doorway To Finding Extraordinary Love

I will give you an in-depth overview of how simple yet important it is to become conscious of this journey, i.e., dating to meet the life partner with whom you will have the greatest opportunity for success.

While no one would walk down the aisle harboring thoughts of marital doom, the fact is that the likelihood of success or failure is often predictable! It's in your hands!


This program introduces you to a new paradigm in partnering in which everyone approaches dating with eyes wide open while still enjoying the beauty of falling in love.

Focusing on Your Inner Beauty ~


Relationship & Life Transition Coaching focuses on our inner strength and beauty - our ability through awareness and skill development to enjoy the most vital and satisfying relationships and lives possible. I am dedicated to the freedom and awakening that come from personal growth.

My Programs Address:

1. Genius Dating / An Innovative Approach: This is a program for all singles, whether recovering from the pain of a failed relationship or frustrated that the love of your life hasn't shown up yet. We all deserve a full and loving life. The concepts, tips and tools of self discovery I present in this program offer transformational information on how to become a conscious dater and to realize that 'good chemistry' is only the very tip of the iceberg. This program can save daters years of fruitless searching as well as mismatched relationships.

2. The Couples Roadmap to Bliss and Lasting Love: The art of relationship isn't something we naturally know how to do, witness our 55% divorce rate. It wasn't a subject taught at school and our personal models are often flawed. This program offers couples an opportunity for personal growth through new perspectives and cutting edge relational skills so that they can more fully enjoy the stages of relationship with joy, confidence and grace.

3. Choosing Commitment: Being on the fence, not knowing whether to fully commit to your romantic relationship or not, is a challenging place to be. Sometimes the signals aren't clear, we don't know what we don't know - and there are blind spots in our thinking. Given that this is one of the most important decisions of our lives, this program is designed to assist you in considering all of the important aspects and dynamics of a committed relationship as you deepen your knowledge of each other. If you and your partner will commit to this program, you will be empowered to move forward confidently.

4. Learning and Navigating Your Own and Your Partner's Money Personalities: Do you consider yourself a saver or a spender? Everyone has patterns of habits and attitudes (habitudes) about money that subconsciously influence decisions all day, every day. Those decisions - both big and small - can help you reach your personal and financial goals or sabotage your best intentions. Money Habitudes is a game that reveals one's habits and attitudes about money (often to one's great surprise!), and is an easy and effective way for people to start talking about money in a productive way. Winner of the 2009 Smart Marriages Impact Award, Money Habitudes is a simple little deck of cards that cracks the code and proves that if a couple can learn how to talk about money - with insight, understanding, and love - they can talk about, and do, anything.

5. Embracing Life's Transitions: Are you considering retirement, did you just re-locate, are you going through a divorce or getting re-married, did you just experience your son or daughter leaving for college and leaving you with an 'empty nest'? These are just some of life's transitions that can leave you feeling lost and alone until one comes up with a new plan, a new strategy, a new outlook, new skills or even just some heart felt support. This is an ideal time to partner with a coach who will support you as you move through this transition while uncovering new possibilities that will reward and sustain you as you meet the challenges.

Please join me, Candace Brindley, on Sunday, February 7, 2010 at St. Luke's in Darien, CT for my talk on the game, Money Habitudes. Originally scheduled for December 2009, we re-scheduled due to a snow storm.
Let's Talk About Money!

Smart Marriages awarded this game it's 2009 top prize for helping people gain insight into their behavior with money and how to discuss money in a non-judgmental, productive way. I've been invited to speak on this fun and enlightening game on February 7, 2010 at St. Luke's in Darien, CT.

St.Luke's bulletin:

In this ultimate shopping season, there's no better time to ask, "Am I a saver or a spender?" We all have habits and attitudes (habitues) about money that subconsciously influence decisions all day, every day. Those decisions, big and small, can help us reach our personal and financial goals or sabotage our best intentions. Money Habitudes is a game that reveals our habits and attitudes about money (often to our great surpirse!), and it's an easy and effective way for people to start talking about money in a non-threatening way. Winner of the 2009 Smart Marriages Impact Award, Money Habitudes is a simple little deck of cards that cracks the code and proves that if a couple can learn how to talk about money (with insight, understanding, and love) they can talk about (and do) anything. Candace Brindley, licensed Relationship Coach with the Relationship Coaching Institute will lead us in what promises to be a fun-filled and insightful Discovery Hour, not to be missed.
This will take place at 9:00 at St. Luke's Parish, 1864 Post Road, Darien, CT 06820
