Let go of your limiting beliefs, and set yourself free

I have spent most of my adult life single. As I talk, think, and write more about what it is like for the extremely quirkyalone me to become passionately quirkytogether, I start to realize that being quirkytogether is about so much more than romantic relationships.

Becoming quirkytogether is not about any particular outcome. For example, our goal in our class QT101 is not to help you get married or even to find your soul mate. Or to help you blend your quirks with the quirks of your current partner. Your quirkytogether journey is even bigger than that.

Our goal in QT101 is to help you show up fully as who you are in every relationship. Our goal is to help you find yourself. You are the one. Believe me, going on this quirkytogether journey has spillover effects for making me feel great in every moment of my life. And that’s why I want to share it with you.

I am a much happier person since I took this turn in my quirkyalone life to develop the quirkytogether in me. I’m not only talking about my romantic relationships. I’m talking about relationships in dating, or with lovers, family, friends, even the people I see at the cafe every day.

We did a half-hour Quirkyalone Coffee Chat yesterday to share on the topic of “What every quirkykalone needs to know about quirkytogether.” If you listen to the call, you’ll get a sense of what I’m talking about–how expansive quirkytogether truly can be.

Listen to the recording here.

My personal story of QA & QT
I shared my personal story of what it has been like being the public face of this quirkyalone movement, and how that has been both good and hard for me at times. Whether it is because I became the founder of the quirkyalone movement or simply because I am who I am, I developed a whole lot of limiting beliefs about what it means to be in a relationship.

In a nutshell, I thought that in order to be free and to be truly myself, I needed to stay single. I thought, if I was in a relationship, I would lose my freedom and my spark, so why would I want to do that? Of course I found something wrong with every man I dated. I equated coupling up with losing what mattered most to me.

Through a process of naming and letting go of those limiting beliefs, rather diligently and repeatedly I might add, I’ve created a new sense of freedom and possibility in my life about the relationships I cocreate. My friendships and boyfriend relationships have been much more quirkytogether. By that, I mean, I show up as fully myself, and the other person does too. We are more authentic. Wherease I used to say goodbye, see you to ex-boyfriends, and rarely stayed close, some of these more quirkytogether boyfriends have become really great quirkytogether friends. We absolutely get and appreciate each other.

I’m still single. But I am ecstactically quirkytogether!

For single people and coupled people
This class is equally valuable for single and coupled people. I want that to be clear. Seriously, if you have never kissed a girl, or you are in a five-year relationship that you want to infuse with a better blend of independence and interdependence, this class is for you. Because we’ll be deconstructing our limiting beliefs and replacing them with new ones of our choosing, and that process can rock your world whether you are single or in an established relationship.

Sign up for QT101 by Thursday at midnight
If you are interested in joining us for this weeklong exploration, you can still join us! I am now calling it a weeklong skinnydipping because we’ll all be jumping in the pool naked with our limiting beliefs. We’ll emerge refreshed and renewed.

Registration closes Thursday at midnight. Class starts Saturday.

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
