Making sense of men's evolution... The stages of development describe the lifelong process by which a man's sense of self evolves. Predictable and unavoidable, these stages determine what men live for and what they can't live without. Understanding the differences between knights, princes, and kings is critical for success in romantic relationships, raising sons, and working effectively with men.
In this intimate conversation you'll learn:
What men can and cannot provide at each stage
How to avoid the tragic mistakes women make
What's really happening during a "mid-life crisis"
What makes a man "ready" for relationship, marriage, and children
The importance of adventure to men of all ages
Plus much more!
Transformed my relationship with all the men in my life, especially my husband
I have listened to all of Alison Armstrong's audiobooks many, many. many times, because there is that much information in them. Whenever there is overlap it is only so anyone who hasn't listened to the other audiobooks can understand the ideas that build upon each other, so do not be afraid that you are paying for the same ideas being repeated over and over and therefore it is a waste of money to buy all of them. It is totally worth it to buy them all(except for the original Understanding Men, which is just a condensed version of the update. The update is so much better than the first version that I do not think it is worth bothering with buying the original at all if you get the update).
Not only is there a lot to absorb in Alison Armstrong's material, but the ideas are often so different from they way we are either conditioned or 'programmed' biologically it will probably take quite a bit of time and effort to even grasp the ideas, much less put them to use. Be patient with yourself and definitely consider taking her workshops which help you reach the epiphany needed to fully grasp and appreciate the material. All of the workshops are worth it and even though they are expensive to take the first time, to retake them is not very expensive at all and it is also very worth it. As you take the workshops and continue to listen to the audiobooks you will find huge shifts in your thinking take place which will translate into happier and healthier relationships and interactions with both men and women within and without your family that will improve your whole life, not just your primary relationship. These are also a fantastic complement to John Grey's work, and visa-versa.
Helped Me Get Married
The information in this CD set, along with PAX Program Workshops, is what had me get married. By understanding the stages of development, with actual examples from men, I was able to see where I was shooting our romance in the foot. After this CD set shifted my approach, he saw the committment in me, to him (not a timeline) and he proposed. We are happily married with children.
