Finally let go of people who continue to break your heart.
How would it feel to fully trust yourself in relationships? How would it feel to really know that you could trust your heart to lead you in the direction of safe, nourishing love...the kind of love that feels like coming home?
What would it feel like to hold your partner so close you can feel their heartbeat and trust them so deeply that you can completely bare your soul?
The problem is, so often we chase love that reminds us of our past — there's love there, but it's mixed with deep pain. It's a version of love where we learned to hide our true selves to get the approval we so deeply craved. That kind of love makes us feel powerless...and it leads to heartbreak. It's not sustainable and too often, we're the one fighting to be seen, heard and loved for who we are; it feels like a silent scream because they can't seem to change, truly choose us or commit. Attraction that comes from our own unacknowledged pain and vulnerability creates dead-end relationships.
The good news is, this doesn't have to be your life. You can choose to enter into relationships on a deeper level — consciously — and change the course of your relationships forever, so you're ready to receive true, lasting love.
It would be my sincere pleasure to guide you on this journey to more fulfillment, more passion, and finding a partner who's ready to love you fully and completely, just as you are.

"To the degree we treasure (not just accept) our core gifts, we attract caring, thoughtful people who are also attracted to us. We are more attracted to people who are good for us and less interested in people that diminish us.
To the degree we distance ourselves from our gifts, we become attracted to people who are unavailable or who can't love us for who we are. We find ourselves less attracted to available people who value us for who we are."
— Ken Page, LCSW, Author & Creator of Deeper Dating

“Deeper Dating was a revelation for me. This enlightening book helped me to see the way we go about dating deeply influences the kind of relationship that will emerge. If you desire a soulmate, lead with your soul. So many of us come from that place of looking for that person who ‘completes’ us, but Ken helped me to see that I desire a partner who ‘reflects’ the best in me. Show your core gifts of vulnerability and authenticity and you’ll find a partner who does the same.”

Ken is absolutely changing the dating paradigm–from a superficial, potentially demeaning and discouraging process to a powerful journey of intimacy in which you discover and share your authentic gifts.”
—Stephen Dinan, CEO, The Shift Network
Is Deeper Dating Workshop right for me?
The best thing about this course IS the group element and coaching. It allows you to interact with others and to truly know that you are not alone. It's the connection to self and others in this group that is like no other. The pure encouragement and self-discovery has been life-changing to so many students. Some of the concepts in the book have been a little challenging for the previous students to quickly and fully understand (mostly because we are so close to ourselves, it can be hard to see what's right in front of us) and the mentorship aspect is one they really appreciate and credit for the changes it help them make.
We cannot receive from others what we are not willing to give ourselves. If you are committed to knowing and honoring yourself, this course is for you. It takes you on a deep journey to learn self intimacy and to honor and respect all parts of you, not just the pretty and easy to love parts.
It's okay to be a little hesitant or feel a little bit weird to speak so openly about intimacy within a group of would-be strangers, but you have all gathered here with one mission: to open yourselves up more to love and learn more about how beautiful all the parts of you are. What we are doing is learning to stretch our nervous system's to learn to find safety with others. All of the students that have previously been enrolled have been on the self-discovery journey for some time, are deeply compassionate, wise and open. All participants are asked to keep the work sacred and to respect everyone's privacy by refraining from sharing details from the workshop outside of the course.
