Conscious Girlfriend Academy Members Say...

I just wanted to thank you for putting together this wonderful Academy experience for us. It is definitely helping me feel more connected with other women, as a late-in-life, fairly recent discoverer of what I think of as my sexual fluidity.

— Carla, age 42

 

Thank you for creating such a powerful and loving community.  I'm very much enjoying the Academy offerings.  It’s so much more heart-opening and encouraging than the dating apps. I'll see you online again soon!

— Eliza, age 50

 

Wow! Today’s Academy group was wonderful! The visualizations we did today were very empowering for me. Also, a few nights ago I got triggered and then got to share about it with two other participants, and got supported with such love and kindness. It was quite healing. 

— Dena, age 66

 

I’m loving the Academy, having beautiful conversations and anticipating good friendships at the very least! It’s helping me feel a new spark and optimism at this point in my life. And I have gotten two women's phone numbers already!

— Ameli, age 64

 

The Academy is such a gift - a wonderful community of lesbians to talk to and interact with! It’s invaluable to me. I’m still working on being the right partner (as well as finding her) and I can see myself wanting to go through the course materials again and again.

— Teresa, age 36

More from Academy Members...

Yesterday's classes were incredible. I learned so much in the Boundaries class, definitely some life-changing knowledge in there! And the spiritual connection group was nothing short of delightful; the energy was so nurturing.

— Audrey, age 38

 

Thank you again for creating this Academy -- you have no idea of the amount of impact this has already made in my life! In the past I felt panicky when a match reached out to me on a dating site. Now I'm gaining so much confidence!

— Lauri, age 61

 

As a new Academy member, I wanted to share how much I enjoyed participating in the recent groups and classes! I can’t wait to watch the recording of the class because there was so much information in it. Thanks so much for making this available to our community. 

— Robbi, age 56

 

The Academy is helping me practice meeting women and sharing myself. I am excited and look forward more group meetings. Also, I have already contact info and have been talking with several women from the group. The “From Conflict to Connection” class was also excellent.

— Alexa S., age 60

 

 

Your class on Solo Sexual Enlivenment was very freeing, yes edgy, but you have a way of breaking the ice, and giving permission really resonates with me. I think that permission is really what I’ve needed for so long to let go (of unhealthy people and patterns), and to be my queer self. 

— Gereen, age 40

 

GREAT session yesterday! It addressed my problems (initiating, asking someone for her contact info, etc.) right to the core. I'm learning so much and it’s a great group of women.  I’m really glad to be part of the community!

— Terry, age 52

Want even more depth? Consider the Advanced Academy option. 

Before starting the Academy, Conscious Girlfriend was best-known for our life-changing class, The Roadmap to Conscious Lesbian Dating & Lasting Love.

 

In the past, this course was only available two or three times per year,

and took place over 12 weeks, with 7 group coaching calls.

Many women said that was just too fast. 

 

Now the Roadmap has a new, more accessible format!

 

If you choose the Advanced Academy option, you’ll get access to all 12 of the Roadmap modules, which include audios and written worksheets.

 

Plus, you'll be able to attend a 2-hour group coaching call every month for 12 months. During those calls, we'll do role-plays focused on your specific concerns, and you'll get personal coaching. 

 

Best of all, instead of having to rush through the Roadmap class

in just 12 weeks, you’ll be supported with the material for a whole year.

 

The Roadmap course is exactly what it sounds like:

an experiential and skills-based map to ready you for a relationship, 

guide you through conscious dating,

help you build clarity and confidence,

and support you in developing the skills for long-term partnership. 

 

Now, let me introduce you to a few women who took the Roadmap, 

and got life-changing results...

 

  • Lucy's Story

    Lucy was in her 40s and had come out after a long marriage to a man. She had only had one relationship with a woman, and it ended badly.  She knew some women would rule her out because she had two kids at home, and, especially because of her kids, she was really picky.

     

    So she doubted there was really someone out there for her, but she took the Roadmap anyway... and it gave her the clarity and confidence she needed.

     

    Within just a few months of finishing the Roadmap, Lucy met an amazing woman (on Tinder, of all places!) They have now been domestic partners for several years. Lucy's new partner adores her kids, and they post amazing pictures on Facebook of their family vacations. 

     

    This is how magic works: Lucy hates to cook, and among the many other qualities she wanted in a partner, she really hoped to find someone who would cook for her. Guess what? The woman she met is a chef!

     

    Lucy wrote to me:

     

    Taking the Roadmap really allowed me to focus on putting out into the universe what I wanted quite specifically. I put into my dating profile things I might not have before taking your course, and looked for specific traits I knew I needed, that I didn't know about before. I believe that was a big factor into why I even found her.  She really is what I have been looking for.   I was one of those women over 40 that wondered if finding the right partner was even possible at this age. Now I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.

  • Elizabeth's Story

    Elizabeth was in her 50s and gun-shy. She had a history of being attracted to partners who were not emotionally safe for her.

     

    She took the Roadmap class and also did 1:1 coaching with me, so we could rewire her attraction patterns.  (Yes, this is doable!)

     

    The Roadmap helped her realize that she actually got turned on by women who felt dangerous to her. This is not uncommon. But though danger felt sexy, it definitely didn't lead to happy relationships. 

     

    After we’d been coaching for a few months, and Elizabeth dated a few women who fit the old pattern, she met a woman at a party and noticed that something different was happening. There was chemistry and she could actually see that this woman was good for her, too. 

     

    Some bumps came up early on, and the Roadmap helped Elizabeth and her new girlfriend get through them and stay centered. Now they’re married and have been together for five years. They're local, so sometimes I run into them around town, and Elizabeth always introduces me as “the dating coach who made this possible for me.”

     

    Of course, the truth is that she made it possible for herself. But I'm really glad that the Roadmap helped her do that. 

  • Jeanette's Story

    Jeanette was in her 60s, and had been single for a very long time. She was nervous about dating, didn't feel comfortable dating online, yet knew she didn't want to be alone forever, either. She felt stuck.

     

    The Roadmap class helped her realize that she wasn't alone; there were actually many other women in similar situations. This helped her release her shame. Next, she worked on healing some unsettled emotions from her last relationship, since she realized they were getting in her way.

     

    Then Jeanette created her online profile, and started meeting women. There were a number of disappointments and awkward conversations at first, but the support of the Roadmap helped her keep at it. After about a year, she met Dena, and they clicked and have been together ever since. Now Jeanette credits the Roadmap with helping her have the confidence to seek -- and find -- a new love (and also work through challenges as they come up.) "It's really never too late," Jeanette says happily.

     

  • Tiffany's Story

    Tiffany was in her 20s, and very shy. She had grown up in a religious family, and had a lot of trouble accepting herself as queer. She had come out to only one friend, who promptly rejected her.

     

    But the Roadmap class helped her build a community of loving, accepting lesbian and queer women friends (and big sisters, mothers, aunties and lesbian grandmothers!)

     

    Tiffany took the Roadmap class twice, and over time, she came out of her shell. She began attending the LGBTQ group at her college, then started using the lesbian dating apps. Soon she made some queer friends her own age. Then, after a few months, one of them suggested they become girlfriends.

     

    Tiffany wrote me, “When I started the class, I was so isolated and couldn’t imagine how I could ever live a real life as the person I am. It seemed impossible. Truthfully I just reached out from desperation. Now I have friends, a girlfriend, and so much more self-acceptance. I honestly think the Roadmap saved my life.” 

I could go on… and on… and on.

 

These four stories are just a handful of the amazing transformations I have been privileged to witness in women who took the Roadmap course -- women in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and yes, 70s too.

 

There's no upper or lower age limit on healthy love. 

And the Roadmap will help you prepare for that love, and find it.

Your Heart is Worth It. 

I hope reading this page has helped you develop more hope about your love life! 

Here's the thing: lesbians and queer women are courageous and powerful, and our relationships can be the very best relationships on the planet.

 

But because two women can bond so deeply and quickly, our relationships can also go bad fast -- if you don't choose a partner wisely, or don't have the skill, compassion and self-awareness to navigate conflicts when they arise. That's why the Academy helps you build those skills, and also connect with other women who share the commitment to conscious relationships.

 

Painful lesbian relationships are unfortunately common.

And over time, some women actually get scared of relationships because of bad experiences.

But it doesn't have to be that way!

 

You deserve happy, healthy love (and great sex, too!) And you can learn to choose the right partner, and also be the right partner.

 

There aren't many places where women who love women can learn, other than the "school of hard knocks." That's why the Academy was born.

We are here to support women who value growth. 

 

And meanwhile, you can have fun, make friends and maybe even find someone to date! A number of couples have formed already within our amazing community :)
