#1 - Affordable
A quote posted after one of our Growthshops...
"This is for anyone and everyone. I think it should be taught in homes and even schools. Really it's a gold mine and at $15 it's a steal. Couples or individual counseling would be roughly $200 an hour and this price was for 3 hours. Bruce put a lot of work into this I see and if you go on the website and look up the conflicts tab there are several links to go further and have this info really sink in.
That's my 2 cents, Yowza!"
The pricing will vary depending on any number of factors, but as per our Mission, Vision and Mandate (About Us), our goal is to deliver a quality Growth Opportunity at an affordable price.
#2 - A fun and safe environment
Let's let the attendees convey the atmosphere!
"Very friendly and non-threatening atmosphere!"
"It is a very lighthearted, non-threatening environment with lots of laughs."
"A great evening! Lots of laughs and contemplation!"
The subject matter is serious and the information is vital, but the delivery and the environment is relaxed and fun. The Growthshops are designed for all types of personalities and the information is easy to comprehend and logical. Perfect for the guys!!
#3 - interactive - Interesting - Innovative
This review probably explains it the best;
"It really is a fantastic way to be able to put down your phones, have authentic conversation and meet amazing, positive, like minded people - there's nothing like being in the same room with a group of people who are all there to better themselves. We also learned SO MUCH. & really when is the last time you can say that you were in a room full of absolute strangers (all ages), and actually were able to connect with each of them on a genuine level without being
uncomfortable or forced?"
Whether you are single or attached, you will meet everyone in the room in a completely organic manner. We will all learn about ourselves through amazing interactions with others, about subjects that are interesting and have the potential to impact our lives.
# 4 - informative - For All ages
Here is what the people are saying...
"Thank you for an informative an enjoyable evening with a great crowd. I learned a lot about myself but most importantly how much more I need to learn to be a 'conscious partner'. I look forward to attending more events."

#6 - it will make you think
Real comments from real people;
"Even if you are not in a relationship; you will learn about yourself."
"We need to have more access to this kind of information on communication."
"At the end when Gisele was standing describing the styles and pointed at the word dismissive - I realized that was probably me. It made me stop and think and I have been pondering this ever since."
"I learned a lot about myself but most importantly how much more I need to learn to be a conscious partner".
It would be tragic for anyone of us to have left after the discussion we had on Wednesday evening and think we are perfectly fine the way we are, but it is the rest of the world that is messed up...

This meet up was truly amazing . It was greatly facilitated and in a great atmosphere . I went because I am single and have been for awhile . I didn’t have a plan or a goal in mind except to be myself and go out of my comfort zone to learn more about me . We need to look at ourselves to do better for us before we can be in a relationship. I met some great ppl and had a fun time . I never felt pressured and it was great to see singles and couples there . I will definitely return soon.

Such a great event and meaningful topic. As usual Bruce and Gisèle did an excellent job at facilitating!
It would be tragic for anyone of us to have left after the discussion we had on Wednesday evening and think we are perfectly fine the way we are, but it is the rest of the world that is messed up.

I really enjoyed the presentation. I learned a lot about how to interact with other people. The time went very fast , with all the interaction and fun games. I can’t wait to go to another one of his presentations.
Thank you Bruce (and Mark) for organizing the event. It was most excellent and I surely hope I will be able to get into a workshop. Bravo! Excited to learn more skills and put to practice :)
So fun! Also, very interesting to learn from others and gain problem solving skills from their unique perspectives.
This is for anyone and everyone. I think it should be taught in homes and even schools. Really it's a gold mine and at $15 it's a steal. Couples or individual counselling would be roughly $200 an hour and this price was for 3 hours. Bruce put a lot of work into this I see and if you go on the website and look up the conflicts tab there are several links to go further and have this info really sink in. That's my 2 cents, Yowza!
So much fun yet again; sure hope to make the next one!
Thank you Bruce, for a lively and interesting afternoon. Looking forward to more
Good fun, good learning. Great way to meet people. Will definitely go again.
July 28, 2018 - Another fun and eye-opening event - as always! Very positive, comfortable space for everyone to share thoughts and learn about relationships.
July 28, 2018 - Awesome evening! Great fun. So interesting to hear and share perspectives. Great learning.
July 28, 2018 - Another great event! Meeting new people and learning about self in a non threatening venue. Male perspectives helped me learn about myself! Can't wait till the next one!
Excellent workshop once again. Even if you are not in a relationship; you will learn about yourself. Bruce is such an excellent facilitator/coach. If you have never attended you are missing out!
Another fun and insightful session. Very informative and interactive. Great to hear all the perspectives - from both males and females!
This was a very informative meet. We need to have more access to this kind of information on communication. A huge percentage of the population needs to learn how to communicate with consciousness.
If you weren’t there you missed a fantastic evening. Fun, interactive, uplifting. The facilitators were excellent and very funny. Would be nice to have more men in the room to get a different perspective on the topics. Very friendly and non-threatening atmosphere!
A wonderful evening with lots of good laughs and sharing of ideas and experiences for the purposes of understanding different perspectives.
Great for anyone who desires to embrace the best in life!
This was a great time! Really fun, interactive and interesting. It was facilitated by men and it would have been good to have more men attend to have more male viewpoints. It is a very lighthearted, non-threatening environment with lots of laughs. Great opportunity to grow and learn.
A great evening! Lots of laughs and contemplation! The Male hosts were dynamic and tried to represent the Male species! A comfortable place for anyone male or female to learn about each other with light hearted humour! Will definitely go to another!
Fun and light hearted way to learn about relationships. We need more men to show up so we can get their perspective which is something i want to learn about. Can't wait to go to the next one. Bruce is excellent in how he integrates games to get to know one another. you experience a lot of aha moments!.
Aug 5, 2018 - Bruce came to Lethbridge to do an introductory group. He presented information in an interactive and fun yet thought provoking way. There were many “aha” moments and we look forward to him returning. These GrowthShops will benefit anyone who wants to improve their relationships regardless of their age or relationship status. I’m bringing my daughter to the next one!
Oct 28, 2018 - Necessary for life's journey for everyone whether young, middle age or older. Helps one understand and make sense of their life choices made thus far.
Oct 27, 2018 - Knowledge is power. Used efficiently brings more simplicity therefore more happiness. And these classes are a lot of fun.
Oct 27, 2018 - Excellent and easy to do for most people - this is from a clinical perspective.
Oct 27, 2018 - Whatever your relationship goals, these sessions are a really fun way to grow in the company of good people.
Oct 27, 2018 - We attended a workshop by Bruce last weekend. He is a very good presenter and workshop style is very open and relaxed. Very reasonable price too! I would recommend checking it out.
Sept 30, 2018 - Enjoyed every minute of it!
Sept 30, 2018 - Thank you Bruce for introducing us to “a conscious partner” and “attachment styles.” The information provided reinforces the fact that all healthy relationships start with self awareness. In discussion, it was particularly helpful to hear the male perspective on relationship issues. It was a unique opportunity for self growth in a fun, safe and stress-free environment!
Sept 30, 2018 - Do I want to be happier in my relationships? You bet. Engaging with the group activities Bruce provided helped me see some of my “unknown unknowns” that keep me going around in the same circle in relationships. That growth now means hope for something better.
Sept 30, 2018 - Very enjoyable and informative. I highly recommend this meetup.
Sept 29, 2018 - Bruce structured the "growthshop" so that everyone present could easily engage in a light-hearted way with some very important issues pertinent to all relationships such as self-knowledge, conscious and positive communication, the many dimensions of good relationships and much more. Three hours went fast with lots of interaction and discussion in small groups.
Sept 23, 2018 - Thanks Bruce, both meetings were excellent, I enjoyed them while learning a lot and hope to see you back in town soon again :)
Sept 23, 2018 - Thanks Bruce, you gave us a lot to think about and to start putting to practice. We hope to see you back here for more growth shops in the near future!
Sept 23, 2108 - That was another really interesting growth-shop! Thanks again and hope there will be more of them :)
Sept 22, 2018 - Thanks Bruce for taking the time to come out to Kelowna. It was a fun night, with an interesting mix of people. You gave us a lot of great tools and I know there is still so much to learn but this was a great starting point. I'm looking forward to future growth shops. :)
Sept 22, 2018 - It was a fun night with nice people,a lot of info to process but worth it.
Sept. 22, 2018 - Thank you! This was a great evening, fun group & lots to learn :)
"I went to my first event last weekend and I really enjoyed it. The value and worth of the exercises as well as the vision to do this in a fun and interactive way makes the learning so refreshing and welcoming. It's a also a great way to meet others like oneself who's focus is to grow and become better in order to create healthier relationships. I've also been reading through a lot of the website and I love it! We need this message to foster healthier relationships all around, from co-worker to family to partner. The research and content is so valuable. I look forward to attending future events!"
