Conscious Mating: Deciding “Is This The One?”

With David Steele and Linda Marshall

When singles become pre-committed couples they ask themselves “Is this the right relationship for me? Is this ‘The One’ for a lifetime commitment?” Fearing relationship failure, many avoid making this decision, and as a result the marriage rate is declining.

Conscious Mating: Sharing Our Vision

With David Steele and Linda Marshall

In this program you will learn:

  • What is “Vision” and why is it important to relationship success?
  • How to gain clarity about your individual vision
  • How to develop a shared vision for your life together
  • The role of vision in determining long-term compatibility in dating and pre-committed relationships
  • How to use a “Conscious Mating Plan” to make your dreams come true in your life and relationship together
  • And more!

Conscious Mating: Are We Compatible?

With David Steele and Linda Marshall

Compatibility is a choice, and is not pre-determined. However, we do have a unique combination of personality traits, values, life vision, requirements, wants, and needs that will result in getting along with some people easier than others.

In Conscious Mating we advocate being conscious of who you are and choosing a compatible partner. But how? There are so many ways of describing and measuring personality and many models and opinions about compatibility that it’s very confusing, unless you’re pioneering anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher (who is consulting with us on this topic).

In this program you learn:

  • How your personality impacts your relationships
  • A simple method of determining your own personality profile
  • Which dominant personality traits are compatible, and which are not.
  • Dr. Helen Fisher’s brand new model of Four Love Types (as seen in this month’s issue of Psychology Today and Oprah Magazine)
  • How to determine your own “Love Type”
  • What Love Types are compatible with you
  • And more!

Conscious Mating: Dealing With Our Baggage

With David Steele and Linda Marshall

We are a product of our past and can’t get away from bringing our past baggage into our present relationships. To practice Conscious Mating we must be aware of our relationship history and patterns and how they impact our relationships. Past experiences shape how we think, feel and act, which becomes habitual unless we can use our consciousness to make different choices.

In this program you learn:

  • How our past is a goldmine for discovering our Vision, Purpose, Requirements, Needs and Wants
  • “Baggage” as a source of strength as well as weakness
  • Research-based patterns and habits of successful relationships
  • The most one most important key to dealing with baggage
  • Four steps for dealing with baggage
  • And more!

Conscious Mating: Should We Live Together?

With David Steele and Linda Marshall

When singles become couples the most common next step is moving in together. It is a common misconception that living together is a good way to test compatibility for marriage and minimize risk of divorce.


  • The cohabitation rate has skyrocketed over 1200% since 1960
  • 80% of these relationships are doomed to failure
  • The divorce rate is higher for couples who cohabitate prior to marriage

While we don’t judge cohabitation to be good or bad, it’s a personal choice and people will do it anyway, our goal in this program is to provide you the information and strategies needed to make effective choices about when, and if, to enter a living together arrangement.

In this program you learn:

  • The role of inertia and momentum in living together
  • Top 6 myths of living together
  • Top 6 reasons for living together
  • Three types of cohabitators
  • Guidelines for conscious cohabitation

Conscious Mating: Finding Lasting Love by Experiencing Your Experience

With David Steele and Linda Marshall

When singles become couples, each partner has different hopes and dreams, wants and needs, attitudes and experiences. These differences too often result in relationship failure and disappointment when one or both partners attempt to mold the relationship and their partner to fit what they want, rather than accepting and embracing “what is. While we must have a vision and requirements and choose a partner and relationship aligned with what we want, we can’t be so rigid we reject reality. How do we let go of needing perfection without settling for less than what we really want?
In this Tele-Seminar you will learn:

  • How to let your “experience” guide your heart and head in a pre-committed relationship
  • Top ten attitudes necessary for lasting love
  • What Greek mythology can teach us about pre-commitment
  • Top three dating traps that interfere with experiencing what’s real for you
  • Three stages of pre-committed relationships
  • A simple, yet powerful triad for creating conscious relationships

Conscious Mating: Am I Ready to Be a Couple?

With David Steele and Linda Marshall

When you’re dating, the transition from single to couple can go by so quickly it’ll make your head spin.

In Conscious Mating we believe this important step is best made with your eyes wide open and with a conscious choice to transition from being single to an exclusive relationship.

  • How do you know when you’re ready to move from “ME” to “WE”?
  • What are the signs that you are ready for an exclusive relationship?
  • How can you tell if your love interest is ready for the next step?
  • How can you transition successfully from being single to being a couple?

In our culture, we tend to skip an important step in our transition from “ME” to “WE”. We jump into commitment pre-maturely and set ourselves up for disappointment and pain down the road.

In this program you learn:

  • The difference between being ready to find a life partner and being ready to be a couple
  • The signs that indicate readiness to become an exclusive couple
  • What it takes to prepare yourself for lasting love.
