Learn to create joyful, secure and lasting bonds that nourish your body, mind and soul.
Harvest the latest insights from psychology, neuroscience and spiritual practice to experience a new, holistic approach to love that really works!
If you’re like most people, love is one of the most important things in your life; it gives you meaning, joy, and pleasure.
It’s natural to want deeper, more loving and fulfilling relationships, because as humans, we are hardwired to want close bonds that give us a sense of safety, satisfaction and comfort.
The challenge is that love’s magnetic allure also makes us vulnerable to the deepest kinds of pain – which triggers fear, withdrawal and self-sabotage.
So while you may crave deep, dependable love, you may also be at a loss as to how to create it and sustain it.
You’re not alone.
The vast majority of us never received education or modeling that taught us how to create healthy, predictable, and lasting love – whether in an intimate relationship or in close friendships.
We often witness ourselves (with some embarrassment) regress into less-than-loving behaviors that sabotage what we truly desire.
Why is this? New science shows your “mirror neurons” are designed to reproduce what you SEE happening around you, rather than what you’re taught. This means that your family and cultural patterns of love – which can be quite dysfunctional – get hardwired into your brain.
You’ve ended up with some bad programming – ways of loving that are unhealthy, based on what you inherited – even if those patterns don’t work for you as an adult.
The good news is that the latest psychology and neuroscience reveal specific ways you can rewire your brain and begin to create secure and healthy love-bonds instead. You can learn to communicate in ways that create safety and security, rather than triggering fight-or-flight reactions in others. Defensive reactions such as withdrawal and aggression simply melt away.
It’s possible for you to finally unlock the secrets or, rather, “disciplines” of love.
It’s time for a new approach to love that’s based in mindfulness, emotional intelligence and secure attachment. As you learn this new approach, you’ll be able to create relationships that aren’t just good – they’re truly extraordinary.
The benefits that flow from truly loving relationships affect every area of your life, from your health to your sense of meaning and purpose.
Scientific studies have shown that dependable love helps us avoid disease. It lengthens our life. Deep friendships enhance our immune system. Healthy families bring us joy. Supportive communities help us navigate life’s difficulties.
In short, love is our greatest blessing and our best health-tonic. It brings fun, adventure and laughter into our lives.
In a more enlightened society, you would have received training in the art and science of love from a young age, given its paramount importance to your well-being.
While our civilization is not there yet, you CAN get this training now – and begin to enjoy a new way of relating to those around you. Joyfully. Securely. Lovingly.
The Power of Love isa 7-Module training focused on integrating the latest psychological research with practical wisdom to help you transform your relationship to love – and to those closest to you.
This training goes beyond abstractions and concepts. It will help you understand how we get triggered into negative downward spirals of fear and anger – and how to switch them into a positive cycles of secure and joyful bonding.
Guided by relationship experts Lion Goodman and Carista Luminare, Ph.D., you’ll discover how to change long-standing subconscious beliefs about love, shift conversations that go haywire, and overcome defensive patterns so you can restore a healthy sense of connection – consistently.
You’ll dig deep into attachment theory (one of the MOST effective forms of couple’s therapy, according to new research), emotional intelligence and spiritual practice.
The Power of Love offers a holistic approach based upon the latest science and wisdom traditions, all focused on practices for people with busy lives.
Course teachers Lion Goodman and Carista Luminare have devoted a lifetime to harvesting the secrets of extraordinary love. Carista’s background as a Harvard-educated attachment specialist and a seasoned couples counselor complements Lion’s years of experience as a consciousness explorer and developer of the BeliefCloset Process™ – a system for shifting beliefs at the core of the psyche, acclaimed by thousands of people worldwide. Together they openly share their story of how they rewired each other from insecure patterns to secure love.
This teaching couple is now experiencing the most satisfying and fulfilling love relationship of their lives, and they’re excited to share the secrets they’ve learned and the practices they’ve honed over the years.
Lion and Carista admit that they haven’t always been experts in the art and science of love. They’ve made about every mistake in the book, giving them real empathy and insight into the wounds, fears and negative bonding patterns that the “old approach to love” activates in so many of us.
So these relationships experts aren’t teaching from a place of always having had it easy!
In The Power of Love, they’ve have distilled the MOST important elements that can shift your relationship to love – whether you’re focused on a current (or desired!) intimate relationship, family, friends or business associates.
According to Lion and Carista, creating extraordinary relationships begins with examining and clearing your old inherited beliefs about love, and then learning how to make love a daily PRACTICE (which means you can get better at it over time).
In the course of 7 modules, they’ll help you recognize your deep potential for love – and show you how to build a real toolkit of specific practices and methods that allow you to address challenges that arise in any relationship.
The end result is a much more sophisticated understanding of how to make your relationships extraordinary, as well as continuous guidance for turning that understanding into a reality.
The Power of Love will put you on track for filling your life with the deep, satisfying, secure love that is your birthright and greatest blessing.
What You’ll Learn in These 7 Sessions
In this 7-module transformational intensive, Lion and Carista invite you to open your heart and transform your life by removing old beliefs and healing historic wounds that have limited your ability to give and receive love.
Each training session will build harmoniously upon the next, so that you’ll develop a complete, holistic understanding of the practices, tools and principles that unleash the full potential of love.
Additionally, actions steps and practices will be provided each session to help you express and embody love in your personal life, professional life and in social action.
Module 1: The Building Blocks of Love
(Recorded June 26, 2014)
In this opening module, you’ll explore what love has to do with power, and how can you use the power of love to change your world. Whether you’re a parent, teacher, healer, engineer or leader, how you relate to yourself and others impacts both the quality of your experience and the results you produce in your life. In this session, you’ll learn:
- Why are you so confused about love?
- What is healthy love?
- The LoveStyles Model: Secure vs. Insecure Attachment
- The Neuroscience of Love: How the brain triggers your heart
- The difference between Human and Divine love
Module 2: The 3 Forces of Love
Oneself, Others, and the World (Recorded July 3, 2014)
In this module, you’ll learn to cultivate the power of love through expressing and embodying love in three areas. You’ll explore:
- How you relate to your Self and experience self-love
- Ways to empower your True Self worth and values and end negation and self-disrespect
- How you relate to others, in all your relationships, including personal, social, and professional arenas
- How you use (and can expand) your sense of love as “acts of service” to help others less fortunate, or to improve the world
Module 3: The Mind of Love
Your Beliefs (Recorded July 10, 2014)
Beliefs can be empowering and uplifting, or limiting and detrimental. You learned “what love is” from your parents – so it’s no wonder that you’re confused! Most of us repeat patterns we learned from observing and mimicking our parents. We then added beliefs about love that we got from other family members, friends and lovers, our religious training, and the media. These beliefs operate unconsciously – until you change them consciously. In this session, you will:
- Examine and release childhood patterns that enabled you to survive and thrive, but are now interfering with your life
- Move beyond old, limiting beliefs that prevent you from engaging and enjoying intimate relationships
- Learn to free yourself from old programs that stop you from giving freely and openly in support and service to others
Module 4: The Heart of Love
The Art of Connecting (Recorded July 17, 2014)
Love is knowing how to bond positively with another (care), and deal with the hurtful reactions we can cause each other (repair). It’s a deliberate practice of caring about the other person’s reality, and the impact you’re having on them. In our culture, many people missed out on this basic understanding of how to mindfully create loving and empowering connections. If you communicate your feelings and needs with heartfelt kindness, you generate a different experience than if you share your truth with judgment. In this session, you will learn:
- How to overcome the challenges of narcissism (in yourself and others)
- The difference between feeling fully and reacting from your feelings
- How to create secure attachment bonds with others (and within yourself), including with your children (if you have them)
- The keys to releasing the past through forgiveness and amends
- How to bring romance into full blossom by understanding ideal love vs. real love
Module 5: The Body of Love
Sex, Sensuality, and Lifestyle Balance (Recorded July 24, 2014)
Love cannot be mentioned without full consideration of the body’s response to closeness. Seeking warmth, comfort, sensuality, and sex is as universal as seeking food and water. Humans have an extraordinary variety in appetite and preferences in this arena. One thing is clear: we are social creatures, and we need touch to thrive. Your individual self-care and daily life balance practices impact the quality of your relationships. In this class, you’ll explore:
- The role of touch (and oxytocin) in your well-being.
- The 4 neurotransmitter systems that optimize your happiness
- How to balance the forces of masculine and feminine within yourself and within your partnership
- The dangerous trap of sex, love, and porn addiction – and how to overcome them
- How to “care & repair” in your relationship whenever things go badly
Module 6: The Soul of Love
The Compassion Virtues (Recorded July 31, 2014)
Love is a Virtue, yet it is made up of many different types of loving acts, each of which is its own virtue. Virtues must be practiced in order to be embodied. In this module, you’ll learn:
- Identifying your personal love and compassion virtues
- The three virtuous powers: integrating love with wisdom and will
- How to bring the virtues into your life: a daily practice to optimize your relationships
- The role of the soul as a the source of divine love and wisdom
- Engage, express, and embody! 3 steps to master and manifest love
Module 7: The Power of Love
Using Your Will to Create a Better World (Recorded August 7, 2014)
The Power of Love produces extraordinary benefits when it’s consciously integrated into your daily life. It produces a healing force that can be directed into your own body-mind and also outward to others. It can be used to raise vibrant children, and build healthy communities. It can be used to create peace within, and peace between people. In this final session, you’ll learn:
- The difference between selfishness, selflessness and self-care
- How individualism separated us and broke our social contract – and how to begin its repair
- The power dynamics that come from competition, and how collaboration can be used to get things done in a loving way
- Ways you can participate in social action as intentional acts of love for future generations
- Keys to mastering and embodying the “Wisdom and Will to Love”
