Have you noticed that holidays have a way of influencing our dating behavior? If so, then you’ve experienced the phenomenon of “holidating”. From Christmas to New Years to Valentine’s Day, there is added pressure to clarify one’s relationship status. Some of these factors include gift giving, being with or without family, seeing old friends, making resolutions, and observing Cupid’s birthday. Exploring theses causes and conditions, we can make a better effort to show up more authentically during this period of time. During this workshop, Kirk Akahoshi will teach you tools on how to overcome the pressures, be clearer about your needs, and show up more authentically.
Once you’ve decided this relationship is “going somewhere”, how do you begin to discuss money and finances? When is the appropriate time to bring up the subject? What are you going to do about giving holiday gifts to each other and extended families? Finances are a leading cause of stress because we bring our ideas about money…how to spend it, who controls it, how much is “enough”, what is a “need” or a “want”…from our origins, often without giving it much thought. Tari Vickery will lead an open discussion to help identify your own ideas about finances, as well as how to talk with your significant other about your beliefs and expectations.
