I'm happy to announce that I'll be leading a Herpes Opportunity weekend workshop September 12-14 in Raleigh, NC. This will be the first (and maybe the only) workshop that I will be leading this year, so if you want to participate, sign up now.
Even though you might feel alone with herpes, you're not. So why live with it alone? Why figure it all out by yourself? Connect with me and others who understand what you are going through. Learn what we have already learned about creating the life you want, regardless of herpes.
If you have any questions about the course, feel free to contact me.
This is not a series of lectures or classes where you sit and listen. It's an interactive course where you participate to make real changes. You will get direct experience learning the best ways to communicate about herpes. We also put some special attention on how you feel, and take some time to clear any shame or blocks you may have in your life as a result of herpes.
With support and guidance from me (and a few other world-class facilitators), you will get the tools, practices and perspectives you need to stop herpes from holding you back.
The weekend workshop is a 3-day course that will transform how you live with herpes and help you integrate it into a perfectly normal, healthy and happy life.
You might think that since you can't do anything about having herpes, you also can't do anything about how you feel about having herpes. You may think that since there's no cure for herpes, then there must not be any cure for how it impacts your life.
While this may seem like an obvious conclusion, it's simply not true. At all.
Simply having the herpes virus is usually not the real reason for most of the heartache and pain people experience. Instead, it's actually how you relate to having herpes that has the biggest impact on your life and all of your relationships.
The good news is that your perspective, how you communicate and how you feel about yourself can change for the better. This course is not designed to make living with herpes simply survivable… it's designed to help you make your life and your relationships awesome (regardless of herpes).
Your ability to create the life you want is far more dependent on your willingness to learn and to grow in the face of challenges than anything else. Life is full of challenges. When you overcome one of them, you gain far more confidence and faith as new ones inevitably come along. This is your opportunity to rebuild your self image and get better at communicating and connecting than most people ever do.
To make sure you get the attention you need, each course is limited to only 12 participants, so it's likely to sell out fast. If you want to join us, just fill out the application.
The total tuition for the course is now $1295 (save $200)
(regular price will soon increase)
I have so much faith in this workshop and the changes it has made in peoples lives that I'm offering a 100% moneyback guarantee. If you come to the course and don't feel 100% satisfied with the value you received, you get your entire tuition returned to you… no questions asked.
This course usually attracts people who believe that change is possible. I trust that if you decide to join us, then you are ready to step outside of your comfort zone to create the life you want.
In order to get amazing results, all you have to do is bring an open mind, an open heart and a willingness to change your life for the better. My amazing Herpes Opportunity staff and I will be right there with you, taking care of the rest.
What participants say about the weekend:
"As a doctor who specializes in stress management, I find it ironic that it took me 17 years of suffering with herpes to finally get the help that I myself needed. I was able to confront and heal on an emotional level what I had perceived before was an incurable, unsolvable problem in my life. I have felt immensely lighter and freer as if a huge burden was lifted... The Herpes Opportunity weekend is a profound, life-changing experience that I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone living with herpes!
If you are on the fence about this weekend,
I encourage you to GO FOR IT.
You are worth it!"
— Dr. Suzanne Schiller, suzanneschiller.com
"I began the journey in a cloud of doubt. But now... new awareness opens up to me daily. I had the most powerful disclosure talk of my life. Not only did my new boyfriend
want to still see me, he was in awe of me "
J.W., New Mexico
"Being able to connect deeply with such genuine people in a caring, nurturing, judgement-free environment
is probably the biggest gift of my life."
"It's definitely not sitting around for 3 days straight talking about herpes. It's 3 days being surrounded by the kindest, most supportive, loving people you'll ever meet."
"I came to North Carolina all the way from Scandinavia...
I thought I was crazy to do this, but another part of me trusted that I was doing the right thing For the first time, I really know what kind of connections I look for in my relationships.
All of them."
M.J., The Netherlands
"The relationships I formed in 3 days are ones I'll never forget and ones I hope to keep close to my heart forever."
"I just got back home from the most amazing experience of my life ... The reason we came together was the shared experience of herpes but the result was healing, growth and love.
A safe space was created for all of us ... I have never experienced anything like that before."
"Going through the weekend with this group
has freed me up physically and spiritually
in ways I couldn't have even imagined."
"I went into the weekend open and willing, but skeptical and hesitant. And I certainly got more out of it than I ever could have imagined. It gave me the opportunity to connect with people on a deeper level than I ever knew possible."
"I wasn't sure I'd be the right kind of participant as I have had herpes for 15 years thus many years to process it. I was hopeful
but I have to admit, a little skeptical. What struck me was how my perception of things and others changed... By the end of the weekend, I had a great realization: I actually had the desire to get my life back, and I could imagine how that would feel. This means that I got a taste of
what my life could be
and liked it!"
R.S., North Carolina
"I had gone down to Raleigh full of hope, anticipation, excitement, and a little bit of nervousness ... overall, feeling like I'd come really far in my process with herpes and self-love and, for the most part, this was going to be a personal celebration and, hopefully, an opportunity to meet some beautiful new people. Ultimately, I had no idea how deep this weekend was going to go... I experienced a depth of connection that I haven't experienced this far in my life."
What are the exact hours on each day?
What if I can't make it to the whole weekend? Can I come for part of it?
The weekend builds on itself, layer by layer from the very beginning, so fully participating from the beginning all the way through the end is vital for you to get what you came for.
Where is it?
Our venue is 5 minutes away from RDU airport, so it's easy to fly into Raleigh, get a hotel room and attend the weekend. We can suggest local hotels.
Why would I want to take a full weekend workshop on herpes?
This ultimately isn't a weekend about herpes. This is a weekend about YOU. It's a weekend about who you are in the face of something you may have some judgments about. And it's about shifting those judgments into self-acceptance with others who are committed to the same. The focus of the weekend isn't herpes. The focus is on connecting you to what matters inside of yourself. In the face of that, herpes loses its power to affect you.
Is food included?
Snacks will be provided through the weekend (fruit, hummus, chips, jerky, cookies, etc.), but full meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) will be up to you. Come each day fully fed. Ample time will be given for everyone to go out to eat lunch and dinner.
Is lodging included?
Lodging is not included in the ticket price, although there are options available to you, including getting a room at the hotel where the weekend is held, being a roommate with a fellow participant or staying with a staff member. A few weeks before the weekend, a secret Facebook group will be formed (none of your Facebook friends will be able to see that you are a part of our group) with all staff members and participants so that you may coordinate roommate situations or work out whatever lodging setup works for you.
Is this in any way associated with a larger group or religion?
This is not associated with any religion, cult, or other larger group. Although it's inclusive and supportive of any and all systems of belief.
As far as the format of the weekend is concerned, is it part education, part group activities? What will it be like for me?
It's less educational (you can get the facts online on our community forums and blog) and more focused on group and one-on-one experiential activities. We have group discussions throughout, and sometimes those include some informational tidbits if participants ask for it, but for the most part the seminar is experiential and interactive. Less someone standing in front of the room "teaching you something" and more "let's jump right in and have an experience we can all feel together." The weekend will be molded to suit exactly what you need for your greatest healing and growth. In that way, it's impossible to tell you exactly what it will be like for you. It's unique to you based on what you need at your current stage of healing and self-acceptance.
