About the Connection Bootcamp

Have you experienced these common signs that early trauma has affected your ability to connect?

  1. When you are in a group, do you struggle to feel that you are part of it?

  2. Do you find yourself avoiding social engagements, simply because it’s triggering to be around other people?

  3. Is it a pattern for you to sometimes say hurtful things to people, and regret it later?

  4. Do you stay in unhappy relationships just so you won’t have to be alone?

  5. Are your relationships more superficial than you’d like?

  6. When you sense that people have pulled away from you, are you often unsure why?

  7. Do you often feel empty and lonely -- even at a party, even in a romantic relationship?

  8. When you make a new friend, do you live in fear, or “wait for the other shoe to drop,” expecting them to to abandon you?

  9. Do you feel sometimes like other people got an “instruction manual” for how to live life, but you’ve had to figure things out for yourself?

  10. Are you haunted by a fear that will end up alone in the world?

If you struggle with connection and these symptoms are familiar to you, I invite you to register for this powerful course.
