There’s a hidden variable behind fulfillment, peace of mind, and resilience that operates 100% free from our circumstances.

Back in my twenties I read an amazing ‘super-study’ which found that people are capable of fulfillment and peace of mind even if they face the full range of adversity and distress. 

That same study also found that people are just as capable of emotional instability and struggle even after winning the lottery.

At times I think we all find ourselves overly affected by the little things that don’t go our way, leaving us dissatisfied, insecure, or chronically wanting something better. 

And in equal amounts, we often feel relatively little gratitude and satisfaction from the big and meaningful things we do have. Or as my dad says, we “don’t get much juice from the squeeze.”

And yet all of us have moments, however fleeting, where we’re relaxed, present, with our guards down, and nothing on our minds.

Those feelings are reachable for all of us, in a way that’s more consistent, reliable, and predictable. And like that super-study implied, our emotional and spiritual lives aren’t governed by the challenges we face. And we’re also not entitled to or magically granted a nicer life simply because things go well.

There’s something else at work. There’s a hidden variable that comes easily to some people, and yet is elusive to a big chunk of the general population. This variable is not only learn-able and understandable, but the more insight we have around this variable, the bigger the payoff. That variable is the sole focus of my programs.

Oh my gosh, thank you, Erika. 🙏🏽

I felt like skipping after our call – it was so helpful, just like every other time we’ve talked. I end up with a lovely sense of relief that it’s not so serious and there’s always something else to see in the best way.”

Linda F., New York, NY


"I notice that I am less rushed, less worried about my relationship, and less caught up in my thoughts.

I feel my whole physical being is more relaxed. I was stressed, overwhelmed and exhausted before I came (for my 4-Day Intensive), with a feeling of hopelessness.

Now I feel calm, content and confident, and optimistic that all will be OK. I have been dealing with conflict by leaving it unresolved. Now I will stand up for myself, but with compassion and confidence, at least most of the time!”

No, your partner does not need to participate in any of my programs. In fact about half of the people that attend my relationship programs either have partners that don’t participate, or they’re single. It may seem like a funny concept to attend a relationships program without a partner, but the fact is, it doesn’t actually matter given how relationships actually work.

The goal of these programs is to help you to show up to the relationship, and the tension and challenges it brings with less reactivity and overanalysis, and more clarity, grace, and presence. That has a profound and immediate impact on the relationship as it changes the level of communication, the chemistry, the connection, and the overall dynamic. It’s the best thing you can do for yourself, AND for the relationship.

Yes. Many of the people in my relationship programs are either single and don’t necessarily want a relationship right now, are dating and looking to settle down, or are with someone but not sure if that’s ‘their person.’

My programs are designed to give you a solid foundation to build close and healthy relationships in the future. It does not mean you are committing to the person you’re with, or that you need to be in a relationship right now. When you’re ready, and you find someone you want to put your energy into, you’ll understand what it takes to stay out of your old habits, go through challenges without shutting down, and build a connection that’s real and gets better over time.
