For women and men who want truly satisfying relationships with one another

Tricia Karp Tricia Karp

Relationships can be challenging. Yet our relationship with ourselves – and one another – is all we truly have in this life.

Without a doubt, the greatest challenge is how we communicate with one another.

As women, how do we stay true to ourselves in a relationship and not give ourselves away?

How do we express our deepest emotions and vulnerability when we’re met with resistance, or a desire to “fix” us?

How do we find the courage to ask for what we want, especially in bed?

As men, how do you genuinely connect with a woman?

How do you make sure you say the right thing so that you don’t cause problems or get shut down?

How do you relate with a woman who’s strong and powerful in ways that allow you to still feel like a man?

How, as women and men, can we keep choosing one another, with kindness and love, over and over again?

How can we connect in ways that create a truly satisfying relationship: heart, body and soul?

We all want to feel safe, and we all want to love and be loved.

It’s time to get down to the business of communicating well so that we can move closer to one another, rather than further apart.

It’s time to reconnect with what truly matters.

It’s time to get CONNECTED…

Working with Tricia and the women was a powerful experience for me. A very safe container was created and held for us to open up and step into vulnerability, sharing in a way that I hadn’t before, and feeling very much seen and heard at a deep level. I felt a deep sense of compassion for and from women, which was very healing for me, and I believe everyone there. It was an honour to be part of a beautiful new way of seeing one another. Tricia is a brilliant facilitator and having an amazing impact on women and men alike. I’m very grateful for the experience!

Is CONNECTED for you?

CONNECTED is for you if:

  • You long for genuine connection
  • You’re in a relationship and it feels stale or as though you’re simply co-existing, or you have trouble dealing with conflict, or you feel like you’re the one who’s always leading the way, or you’d love more intimacy and more sex. In a nutshell, you know things could be better and you want that
  • You’re not in a relationship and perhaps would love to be, and the idea of being able to connect with the opposite sex in ways that offer truth and depth and support excites you. Perhaps too you want to be better prepared for your next relationship, knowing that if you can approach it differently from last time it will set you up for the kind of partnership you’re longing for
  • You understand that learning new communication skills would make all your relationships – intimate or otherwise – easier and more satisfying
  • There’s resentment lurking in your current relationship or hanging around from past relationships, and you’re ready and willing for healing and to clean the slate so you feel lighter and freer – and be more loving
  • You’ve been in sacred space with other women or men, or would love to experience it, sharing truthfully and being heard, witnessed and lovingly received by the opposite sex. And you’d love to know what’s possible for relationships
  • A part of you has given up on the possibility of having the kind of relationship you know, if you’re honest with yourself, you’d love, and you’re ready to dip your toe in the water to discover what’s possible
  • You love the idea of getting involved in a program from the comfort of your own home and experiencing genuine connection between other men and women in a kind and supportive community
  • The idea of doing this terrifies you a bit! That’s perfect, it means it’s stirring something inside you that truly matters to you

You can expect to be challenged, have fun, laugh and cry, learn new tools that are easy yet make a big difference in how you relate with others, have a deeply fulfilling experience, and make beautiful connections and friendships.

There was trust between our group and love and vulnerability and human connection. I’ve discovered a new version of myself and it’s truly wonderful. I trust Tricia and she made us all feel safe. I’ll never forget this experience, and it keeps sustaining me in my life.

Michelle Kneebone, Australia

I attended one of Tricia’s retreats with a group of men to connect with the women at an authentic level. Tricia facilitated the event with such gentle, clear and loving space and everyone I spoke with afterwards said they felt so grateful and blessed to be there. I’ve run men’s circles for a number of years now and I know how important ‘safe space’ is and Tricia embodies this quality. I highly recommend her for anyone wanting to explore their inner world and do it with an authentic, loving and committed leader.

What’s Included in the CONNECTED Program?

 

 

 

 

 

This program is for a small, intimate group, to ensure personal attention for everyone involved. There are a total of 10 spaces only, for five women and five men.

The program covers six modules of learning the most important communication tools for relating.

These will be taught by me in live online sessions/circles on Zoom – one session for women, and one session for men. In these sessions we’ll focus on your relationship with yourself, first and foremost, what you take into your relationships, and how to communicate in ways that allow you to genuinely connect.

Then we’ll come together as a mixed group in a sacred circle to share openly and honestly about these topics and our own experiences in relationships. Everyone will have the opportunity to speak their truth and be heard by the group.

This is a profoundly healing thing to do. You can expect to be truly heard without judgment, and experience news levels of understanding and compassion for other women and men. There’ll be a level of truth telling you likely haven’t encountered before.

You’ll attend two live online sessions/circles each month – a total of 12 in our six months together, that will run from 60-90 minutes. These will happen fortnightly.

We’ll cover six modules – one a month – together:

One & Two – Emotions

Being able to express what we feel is essential for truly satisfying relationships. Yet we can feel so vulnerable and worry that we’ll be judged, rejected or labelled “difficult”.

Women are terrified of being called “crazy” or shut down for showing their inner wildness, anger or rage. Men often aren’t comfortable with emotions because they’ve been conditioned to believe that emotions are a sign of weakness and not acceptable.

There’s a healthy way to express emotions, and there’s a way to be able to hold space for someone when they’re sharing what they feel.

That’s what you’ll learn in this module, as well as how to own and get comfortable with your own emotions, so that you’re not unnecessarily triggered by a partner’s behaviour.

We’ll cover conflict and how to deal with it when you’re in the eye of the storm.

We’ll also work on encouraging your partner’s self-expression. If you can do that, and even support it and ask for it, you’ll be an amazing partner and lover. If self-expression is stifled or threatened, or you punish your partner for it, your relationship won’t last – whether it takes a few months or more than 20 years for it to fall apart.

Three – Forgiveness

Forgiveness is one of the hardest things to practice when we’re hurt – and essential to keep our love alive.

You’ll learn an easy and beautiful tool for forgiveness that you can use regularly in any of your relationships. You’ll have the opportunity to practice this in our groups, to clear out old hurts and resentments and make way for more inner peace and love.

No-one can afford not to know how to practice forgiveness in a relationship.

Four – Listening

When someone truly listens to us we feel like the most important and loved person in the world. Yet listening done well is a skill we all need to learn, and that’s sorely lacking in most relationships.

It’s a frequent complaint of women that men don’t listen, but many men say the same thing too.

You’ll learn how to be the kind of listener who’ll open someone’s heart to you. That’s what you want, right?

Five  – Sensuality & Sex

There’s a divide between what women and men want, and what we think one another want. Women tend to not speak up and ask for what they want for fear of hurting a man’s ego. They also have shame around owning and expressing their pleasure. This makes for a sexual relationship that isn’t based on truth.

Men tend to think they need to ‘perform’ or ‘achieve’ to make a woman happy in bed. They also have shame around expressing their desires.

We’ll get real about what women and men feel and want, and how to best communicate that to make for a more loving and juicier sexual connection.

Six – Devotion

This isn’t much talked about, and it needs to be. Most of us don’t understand what true devotion is in a relationship, and it’s imperative for the type of connection we say we want.

Devotion is most often associated with religious experience or spirituality, as we devote to a “higher source”.

We’ll explore what devotion is in a relationship and how to express it, so we can choose to move past petty and niggling issues and stay connected to the truth of our love.

Our Schedule

The women will meet fortnightly as a separate group on Tuesdays at 7pm (AEST). The men will meet as a separate group straight after, on Tuesdays at 8.15pm (AEST).

Our mixed group will meet together monthly on Tuesdays, a week later, at 7pm (AEST).

This means we’ll have a weekly session together, a total of 12 in three months.

All calls will be recorded in case you miss a session – AND, I ask that you please ensure you’re available for ALL the live sessions, to ensure the integrity of the group. Please commit to this. It matters.

I’m so grateful to say that I’ve come out of this work feeling like I’ve grown into a woman for the first time, at the ripe old age of 49. Tricia is so much fun but at the same time there’s a depth of wisdom and there’s a genuine, authentic desire from her to support you in whatever it might be, without judgment. Such a deep love comes from Tricia.

Trina Baldwin, Australia

I took part in an event Tricia facilitated for men and women to connect with one another. She knows how to create a safe environment where vulnerability, personal growth and self-love are a guarantee.

Why Work with Me?

I’m a transformational leader in the realm of powerful speaking, especially at work and in relationships.

My career began 27 years ago as a commercial radio journalist and newsreader. Known first and foremost for my voice, I worked as a prime time award-winning TV news presenter, voice artist, news director, and senior corporate communications adviser and presentation skills trainer.

I started my own business with a sincere desire to help women find their voice, and for many years ran sold out powerful speaking workshops for women around Australia. I also wrote and published two books, including an Amazon number one bestseller. After a few twists and turns along the way, including training as a Tao Tantric Arts teacher, I moved to Bali and ran women’s retreats. At each of those retreats I’d bring in a group of men to do relating practices with the women.

Each time my heart was profoundly touched, as it was for everyone who took part. We all agreed that new levels of compassion for one another came alive, and that healing had taken place between women and men. It felt like that healing rippled out from our group to the world. People spoke about going home to their partners and being different – kinder, and more loving.

I knew it was my task to bring more of this type of relating to the world.

I’ve been married and divorced, and I’m a solo mama and my teenage daughter lives with me. I’ve had my fair share of relationships and experiences with men – good, bad and ugly. It’s fair to say that the men in my life have been my greatest teachers. The number one problem I’ve encountered in my relationships, and that I see for others, always comes down to communication. Every single time. It makes my heart so sad when we get it wrong because, most of the time, we’re good people with good hearts. We just don’t know how to do it better.

I’m here to change that.

I want to live in a world where we’re kind and love one another better. I’m committed to bringing together groups of men and women to connect and learn, to speak, and to hear one another’s true voices.

Our hearts need this. Our relationships need this. The world needs this. I know this in every fibre of my being.

CONNECTED is part of my contribution to this mission.

 

 

 

 

 

What a gift. There is such magic in being together in a sacred space so vulnerably and lovingly. Tricia pushes you out of your comfort zone, there’s no doubt about that, but it’s through that that you grow as a person. I let go of stuff that no longer serves me, and came away feeling softer of heart with real sense of joy and love – for each other and the world. This is much bigger than us, you feel it.

Carolyn Parrella, Australia

I’ve really connected with my heart, and shared an experience that has been absolutely life-changing for me. I can’t express how important it is to invest in yourself.

Catherine Hunter, Australia

The learning and softening of my heart has been incredible. To be honest, and show your true essence and who you are has been wonderful. Tricia has an amazing intuition and care and kindness that she brings.

FAQs

Is CONNECTED worth the investment?

As with learning anything new, you get out of it what you put in. When you choose to participate fully – with vulnerability and honesty – you can transform yourself and your relationships. How can you even put a price on creating relationships that truly satisfy you: heart, body and soul?

Will CONNECTED help me with my marriage problems?

This program addresses the issues that come up in every relationship. If you start to use the skills you’ll learn – in your marriage and other relationships – you will see positive changes. These skills aren’t difficult, but they make a significant difference. This is about choosing what you want for yourself and your partner in a relationship, and being willing to make the effort to create that. We get what we tolerate, and nothing changes unless we do.

Do I need to have relationship problems to be part of this program?

No, not at all. Every relationship can benefit from connecting with one another better. What you’ll learn and experience will give you a solid foundation of skills you can call on when you do run into problems, which are inevitable. With this program you’ll give yourself and your relationship the gift of true, loving connection.

I’ve done a lot of personal development work. Will CONNECTED go deep enough for me?

There’s always more to learn – you know that! The reality is that most of us haven’t been taught how to connect with one another in ways that help us create the type of relationship we crave. We’ve stumbled and bumbled our way through problems as we’ve moved further away from one another’s hearts. We all want connection. We all want to love and be loved. This program will not just give you new skills, but offer you the opportunity to connect with other women and men in a confidential, sacred space where you’ll hear a kind of truth telling that rarely happens in our world. We will go deep. I always attract groups of people who are authentic and brave and care about having a life of meaning. It’s heart warming and healing, in ways that are beyond words.

Do I need to be in a relationship to take part in CONNECTED?

No, you don’t. In fact, I believe there is as much benefit for single people as there is for those who are currently in relationships. Firstly, you’ll develop more awareness of your relationship with yourself, how you communicate, and what you bring to any and all of your relationships.

You’ll also have the opportunity to experience a real, heartfelt connection with members of the opposite sex, which can be deeply nourishing and healing. You’ll  work on skills you can take into a new intimate relationship – and any relationship at all, such as with friends, family and even work colleagues. What you experience will set a solid foundation for what you want in all your relationships.

What can I expect being part of this community?

I guarantee you a community of people who are kind, supportive and caring. I guarantee you a safe, confidential environment. I’m known for my ability to bring together the right people at the right time, to ensure maximum connection, growth, meaning and fun too for everyone involved. Many of us are lonely. Many of us long to connect and to do so more deeply. You’ll get that in this program. Often friendships are developed that last long after the program is over.

If you’ve never taken part in a sacred circle before, you’ll experience a depth of care and support from others of the same and opposite sex that you’ve likely never encountered. We all need a place to talk about what’s in our hearts, and we all need to be heard without judgment. You’ve found that places here in CONNECTED.

Do you offer payment plans?

I understand the CONNECTED program is an investment. I want every man and woman who enrols to feel a committed “yes” before joining this program.

You have the option to pay the investment in full, or to choose one of the stated payment plans. The first payment will be used as your non-refundable deposit, and then the following payments will process automatically every 30 days. Once you enrol you are liable for all payments. Payments are accepted via credit card.

What is the refund policy?

There are strictly no refunds. This program requires your full commitment.

What is the time commitment for this program?

We will meet fortnightly. One session will be for 60 minutes and the mixed group sessions will be for 90 minutes to two hours.

You’ll be sent worksheets once a month, that will be discussed in our next session together. You’ll need to work through them before the call, which will take about 15-30 minutes.

How many live calls are there?

There are 12 live calls in six months, and they are all facilitated personally by me.

What if I miss a call?

All sessions will be recorded and posted in our private Facebook group for you to listen to later. However, the importance of attending the live sessions can’t be overstated. I urge you to make the most of this program by ensuring you can – and do – attend every live session call. This is for you to get the most out of it, and to withhold the integrity of the group and the community we’re creating together.

I know your life is busy. I promise you, this is so worth the effort.

When will I receive the dial-in for the live session calls?

Once you register, your application will be reviewed and you’ll receive a confirmation email within 48 hours. This will include session dates and times, and the dial-in access for our sessions.

Will you run this course again in 2020, or next year?

At this time there are no plans to do that.

Want to join but can think of so many reasons not to?

Are you feeling the pull of Yes I want this! followed by I can’t really afford it or I don’t have time right now or This is too scary?

When you choose to step up to the next level for yourself, and invest in yourself, life will meet you there. Your relationships will improve. You’ll start to connect with others in ways that are more real and satisfying. You’ll start to get more of what you crave in your connections with people – more kindness, more heart, more love.

That’s what you want. That’s why you’re reading this now.

I want you to know there’s more for you in relationships and you’re allowed to have it and you can. With my support, and the support of the rest of the people in the program, you’ll discover what’s possible and it will be deeply fulfilling.

I invite you to say yes to yourself, to relationships and love, and step in.

You’ll be so glad you did.

I have loved Tricia’s work for ten years! Whether one-one, in a group or in Bali for the transformational Reclaimed and Radiant Women’s Retreat, Tricia brings love and light, along with profound learning and laughter! Tricia has an innate talent to teach and hold space, so we may connect to our hearts, emotions, and inner wisdom. I am always inspired and deeply touched in Tricia’s presence, and the amazing people she attracts, as she generously shares her soul’s work in the world. 

Kate Woodland, Australia

Tricia is a smart, courageous, beautiful, highly spiritual yet very grounded woman of wisdom. Working with her is like mixing intense coaching with the beautiful dance of laughter and reconnection with oneself. Her very presence made me feel at home. Her sense of humour made me laugh at my conditioning and forced self-beliefs. Meeting her brought inspiration, lightness, and helped me see my feminine essence and its depth. Working with her far exceeded my expectations.

Katarzyna Udgita Majak, Poland

I trust Tricia’s insight and she has a wonderful ability to communicate in a charming, sensitive and genuine way, more like a friend and counsellor.
