Trully Unlocking the Mystery
This workshop helped me to unlock and embrace myself as a woman. I received knowledge which has helped me in relating to women in my work, family, friends, and neighbors. I was able to empower the men in my life to get what they need from me in a way that works and with no drama. By understanding how the feminine is beautifully designed, I no longer beat myself up when I think I'm going crazy. I understand my instincts and then have choice in how to next act or speak and I love my femininity!
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.
Proceed with caution...
The science on all of her work is shaky or non-existant. Some of the current science seems to directly refute her ideas. Even the current climate with Harvey Wei stein, Charlie Rose seems to belie some of her beliefs that as a culture we hate men, but my real issue is her awful take on women. I disagree that women don’t have honor, generally. Sure some women don’t, and she says she doesn’t, but I do, and I know other women who do as well. I cover for coworkers I don’t like for the team. I feed my family even when I’m mad at them. I don’t emasculate my male friends if they say the wrong thing. How I fulfill my duty and obligation doesn’t depend on how I feel. It’s a commitment I made. I love that she celebrates men and what they have to offer, but I think a lot of her theories on women are skewed by her own biases. What she’s like, not necessarily by talking to lots of women about what they’re like. In all her work I go in with a sense of fun but also skepticism. This was the first one I actively disliked and thought this doesn’t even sound like me or the women I know. It’s sounds like maybe some women, and certainly like The author, but not all of us.
