You don’t have to settle for a miserable experience in love. You can make it great.
South Amboy Arts presents Thomas M. Jones for an
author talk, interactive workshop and book signing

The Integrated Self is a combination of the sensitivity and empathy of the Fragile Self combined with the power, passion and drive of the Authentic Self, with the discernment to know which to apply when. We must wade through the trials of the fragile and the impulsiveness of the authentic to get to this Integrated Self, but it is well worth it. It is truly the best version of ourselves, a combination of all of our strengths and colors applied with great skill. This “self” will create and sustain the bigger life you have always been yearning for.
The goal of this interactive workshop is to guide participants through the journey from crisis through transformation. It is critical that we understand this process to move through the three versions of self without getting stuck or trapped in a lesser self. Using the tools of The Paradox Process, Thomas will expertly facilitate a dynamic and transformative experience in order to bring you from small to big, from unentitled to demanding that life give you what you want: the Integrated Self, the most effective version of you.

The Fragile Self presents as frail and vulnerable; we are scarcely able to face the light of day. We lead with our sensitivity and we feel everything with a daunting intensity. The stories that we tell ourselves accommodate our perceptions and feelings, stories of loss and weakness. When we identify with this version of ourselves we are diminished and refuse to challenge life. It is the first stage of actualization, and the most difficult to navigate. It brings with it a sensitivity and sensibility that will be useful later.
Are you no longer getting the fun, the passion, the connection you once had in your relationship OR do you crave a companion, but are tired of looking for the love you want? Conscious Loving is designed to give you the tools to construct a lasting partnership whether you are presently in a relationship or not. It will answer the questions:
*What do you want in relationship?
*What do you need?
*What do you expect?
Thomas M. Jones will lead participants through exercises from his book Love Games: The Hidden Rules of Relationship. Each exercise is designed to explore and expand essential relationship skills such as communication and navigating conflict. This hands-on, experiential way will teach skills to create love, transform your relationship and sustain it.
Walk in the same. Walk out different.
The Makeover Workshop will change you in the ways you haven’t been able to change. We will Confront, Engage, and Create a new you. There are only two possibilities:
KEEP BEING WHO YOU ARE or CHANGE.
HOW IS THIS VERSION OF YOU WORKING?
