Get Quirky

Get Quirky is an online course designed to help you liberate your quirkiness (aka your unique spark in life).

You’re going to get new inspiration to reflect on and celebrate the quirky parts of you and a whole new perspective on relationships and singleness.

I would love to have you as part of our community.

“The best part [of being quirky] is the incredible feeling that comes from the freedom to live your life as YOU need to — a whoosh that blows through you like a living breeze and makes you know you are really alive. In so doing, you encounter like-minded individuals whose souls vibrate to a similar pitch. You no longer feel like you don’t fit in; you have made yourself BELONG.”—respondent to my quirky survey

What do you mean by “quirky”?
Every person is unique, thus every person is quirky, but. . . quirky people are the ones who accept their quirks, and even relish them. Quirky is you, at your most natural. Quirky lights you up.

Here are some definitions from real-life self-identified quirky people. Quirky is:

‚Äö√Ѭ¢ “Enjoying life and dancing to your own beat. Quirky people are often the first on the dance floor.”

‚Äö√Ѭ¢ “Willing to throw a stone into a pond with no guarantee that all of the resultant ripples will go in the expected direction.

‚Äö√Ѭ¢ “Choosing your own path in life and to do things because they suit you, not someone else’s ideals.”

‚Äö√Ѭ¢ “Absolutely s-e-x-y.”

Why join Get Quirky?
A whole month of quirky is going to spark up your life. There will be ripple effects wherever quirkiness most needs to show up in your life: in your social life, creativity, work, and in your relationship to yourself and others.

As opposed to most self-help or personal growth courses, the emphasis in this course is on fun and play.

Get Quirky starts sooooon! The registration and start dates will be announced soon. Keep in mind the first course will start soon after the 10th annual International Quirkyalone Day (February 14).

Your Guide (aka QuirkyGuru)
I’ve been helping people celebrate their quirky selves for the last ten years in my writing, coaching, and life as the founder of the quirkyalone movement. I’ve written two books. My first book is called Quirkyalone: A Manifesto for Uncompromising Romantics (Harper One). Quirkyalone is a word to describe people who prefer to be single than to date for the sake of dating. I founded International Quirkyalone Day (February 14) to create an alternative to Valentine’s Day that celebrates all forms of love. IQD has been celebrated in over 40 cities around the world since 2003 and it’s been featured in USA Today, the New York Times, London Guardian, CNN, MSNBC, and more.

    Because I am older I have had to bury my quirky side – just for survival. Now I let little bits out and the response is mostly positive. I would be interested in the course you are offering.

Praise from Readers and Coaching Clients

"It is liberating to bust out of the confines of prescribed roles and be 100% myself. Quirkyalone coaching is empowering.”—Barbara Berry, 43, Gainesville Florida

"You write what we know (in some deep hidden place) but that needs to be said. in other words, you're developing something fundamental. Quirk might just be a tad left of center, slightly outside our peripheral vision. but a much more comfortable, truer place to stand."--Alexandra Joy Forman, Rio de Janeiro, author of a book of inner quirk, Tall, Slim and Erect: Portraits of the Presidents

“Sasha's coaching helped me get unstuck to pursue my passions. If you want dedicated support in creating a more fulfilling life, I highly recommend working with Sasha.”—Jennifer Ludders

“In her writing, Sasha Cagen is up to something that could be as important for women (and men) as The Feminine Mystique was years ago: We aren’t just halves of couples; we are distinct individuals—as complete and potentially happy alone as we are with our families and lovers.”— Barbara Ehrenreich, veteran muckraker and author best known for Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America.

"Sasha Cagen is something of a hero for the growing ranks of singletons who are learning to feel secure with their status, and she is often their public face. She appears frequently on popular national television and radio programs to explain that going solo is a viable, legitimate, and not necessarily lonely way to dwell in a city—a point that is surprisingly controversial given how many people are already living alone.”-- Eric Klinenberg, professor of sociology at NYU and author of Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone

"In her classes and coaching, Sasha has a way of making you feel like you are sitting in a coffee house, just chatting and discovering the best parts about you."--Beth, 35, Richmond, Virginia

"Sasha helped me get to a place where I could begin to love myself, flaws, fears, and all."--Valerie Bosselait, 50′s, small business owner, Amherst, Massachusetts

"I had a wonderful time in the Quirky Tango Adventure: the tango lessons with Alejandro, massages from Nele, and the group circles and other meaningful conversations with individuals who were part of the experience. In particular I appreciated the sincerity and openness of our conversations. I met a lot of fantastic, beautiful, amazing women who were quirkyalones (or quirkytogethers)."--Amanda, early thirties, Portland, Oregon

"Orgasmic pioneer Sasha Cagen is on a vulnerable and potent personal research mission into the world of sensuality, and she's got some fantastic reports from the front."--Michele Lisenbury Christensen

"The book proposal for Wet made me blush, and made me want to read more."--Tara Gentile
