Creating the Friendships that Matter


Friday, August 31 at 7 pm (Check-in at 4 pm) - Sunday, September 2 at 4 pm, 2018



You're Invited:

Nearly 75% of us report feeling dissatisfied with our friendships. Our loneliness though isn’t the result of poor people-skills, not being likable, or even lack of interaction, but rather because too many of our relationships lack the frientimacy— the friendship intimacy—that we want. Most of us don’t simply want more people in our lives, or more socializing; what we want is more safety, more support, move laughter, and more love. 

This interactive and engaging program is based on the research and work shared in Shasta Nelson’s two books: Friendships Don’t Just Happen and Frientimacy: How to Deepen Friendships for Lifelong Health and Happiness. Her ground-breaking work teaches all of us what a healthy friendship is, how to evaluate our relationships, and exactly what it takes to deepen any friendship in our lives.

Through guided experiences, lecture, and time for self-reflection, you will learn the:

  • Health benefits of connectedness: Why we have to address our loneliness and desire for greater connection

  • 5 circles of connectedness: What are the different types of friendship that we all need?

  • 4 common imbalances: What is your specific friendship need?

  • 3 requirements to grow a friendship: How to start, repair, fix, or end any friendship.

You will leave this workshop knowing exactly how to start, deepen, and repair any relationship in your life.


All women who value creating better friendships in their lives. Come alone and meet others who value healthy friendships, or come with a friend and deepen your friendship!


Nearly 75% of us report feeling dissatisfied with our friendships—we're left wishing that we either had more friends or felt safer and more intimate with the friends we do have. Most of us don't even know what we don't know about our friendships; but research has so much to teach us now about exactly what we can do to foster the best friendships in our lives.



Come connect with us this Labor Day Weekend: Friday, August 31 through Sunday, September 2, 2018.  Check in is 4 pm on Friday, dinner (included) starts at 5 pm, and our first program begins at 7:30 p.m. Then we'll end on Sunday at 4 pm.


We're being hosted by 1440 Multiversity campus in Scotts Valley, CA. It's about a 20 minute drive from the San Jose airport, and about an hour from SFO. Nestled on land filled with massive Redwoods and Giant Oak trees and gurgling stream, you'll be surrounded by comfort and beauty. Plus their infinity pool on the edge of nature, their nourishing and gourmet food, and access to yoga classes are all included!

As you open and explore, you will discover how to personally apply what you learn for evaluating and identifying what you most need for deepening your friendships.
