What does SCIENCE SAY about your dating?
Last week, I had the privilege of attending the Love Coach Conference in Santa Monica, CA: A program for key players in the dating and relationship coaching industry across the globe, who came together from both near (---my GPS clocked in my drive at 12 minutes, door to door---) and far (--- fellow attendees hailed from Colorado, New York, Montreal, and even Norway!)
The eclectic group of “love coaching professionals” included women and men from all ages, backgrounds and walks of life, united for a single (no pun intended) purpose: To network, gain new tools and insights, and expand their knowledge in the field.
So, I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I signed up. Would the presentations be interesting or redundant? I wondered. Would I learn any new skills and info.? Or would it be just another cliche pep-talk about “How to get Singles to Stop Being So Picky?”
But my fears, I’m happy to report, were immediately quelched upon my arrival and I was pleasantly Wowed by the experience. The conference turned out to be an awesome way to forge new friendships, build connections with passionate, like-minded entrepreneurs, and learn from a diversified selection of world-renowned experts who truly earned their place on the stage---and in their respective niches.
Sitting down with Dr. Amir Levine, author of Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find-And Keep-Love. #LunchtimeQ&A
One of the highlights was a presentation by Dr. Amir Levine, M.D., world-renowned neurobiologist and co-author of Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find-And Keep-Love. Through an eye-opening lecture, personal assessments and group workshop activities, Dr. Levine gave us a glimpse of how the way that our brain is wired since early childhood actually shapes who we’re attracted to --- and who we aren’t --- as adults! We got a fascinating look at what this all means in terms of dating and commitment, and my own brain was buzzing with excitement about this new knowledge. (Yikes. Was this what I missed while I slept through high school bio class? :-) And we also found out some key insights into how to help our clients get into strong, lasting relationships --- not, as Dr. Levine put it, “situationships.”
Knowing more about how cutting edge-research in neurobiology explains the laws of attraction and what they mean in dating, I’m so psyched to put all this info. -- and everything else I learned at the conference, to good use, so I can help you on your journey to your soulmate! #knowledgeispower
P.S. UnAttached? Let’s do somethin’ bout that.
