DO YOU FEEL TRIGGERED IN A CONFLICT?
Are you sick of getting triggered by cyclical arguments that never seem to get anywhere, and only leave you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, desperate, and/or afraid of being rejected or abandoned by your partner?
Or maybe you are left with a sense of futility, failure, and hopelessness about the relationship, convinced that you and your partner must not be right for each other, or maybe you think you better end it now, before the other shoe drops.
If this sounds familiar, this course is for you!
In this 3-part video series we get to the root of miscommunications in relationships, and you learn practical, easy tools and solutions to weathering conflict in love, without breaking a sweat, using The MacWilliam Method™ .
"Briana is extremely articulate and skilled at communicating complex ideas in a simplified and easy-to-understand manner. The videos are dense with information; there is no fluff here. I have had to watch the videos a few times to digest the material! My favorite part of the course was learning about the four attachment styles and the very practical advice on what phrases are triggering for a partner, based on attachment style, and how you can anticipate the ways in which they need to grow. I feel like I have learned more from this course than I have from other courses costing three times as much. If you are on the fence, its totally worth it."

THE STRUGGLE IS REAL...
Frequent conflict in romantic relationships can be supremely 'triggering,' depending on your attachment style--which is the blueprint of your unique lovemap. Your blueprint is often a good indicator of how much closeness or space you desire, when it comes to emotional intimacy.
- Open Hearts: Individuals that want a lot of closeness with a partner, typically have anxious attachment; I call them "Open Hearts."
- Rolling Stones: Individuals who want more space, usually have avoidant attachment; I call them "Rolling Stones."
- Spice of Lifers: Individuals that both want and fear closeness, are sometimes considered fearful avoidant or disorganized; I call them "Spice of Lifers."
- Cornerstones: Individuals who are comfortable with closeness and separateness in relationships are considered securely attached; I call them "Cornerstones."
WHEN TRIGGERED IN LOVE, you might find certain phrases particularly annoying.
Since you purchased Disorganized Attachment 101, its likely you have attracted a partner who also struggles with insecure attachment, harboring either anxious, or avoidant tendencies.
For example, anxious Open Hearts might feel triggered by phrases like...
- "I am sorry you feel that way."
- "I don't know what you're so upset about, its not that big of a deal."
- "I need some time alone to think about it."
- "I don't know why I feel that way, the chemistry just must be off."
And avoidant Rolling Stones might feel triggered by phrases like...
- "I know you better than you know yourself."
- "You wouldn't say/need/do that if you really loved me."
- "Nothing is wrong, I'm fine."
- "If I have to ask, than it doesn't count."
- "Keeping [insert anything] private means you're lying/cheating on me."
But it doesn't have to be such a topsy turvy story between partners. Especially not with the tools I am offering in this course!

WHAT MAKES THIS COURSE DIFFERENT...
How to Handle Being Triggered in Love is a toolkit to help you stabilize the communication in your partnerships, using The MacWilliam Method™.
With The MacWilliam Method™, you will come to experience self sovereignty as evolving out of a continuous loop between conscious awareness and creative expression.
"Self-sovereignty" is a term used to describe an optimal experience of personal agency, esteem, confidence, and security, so you can approach your relationships from a position of compassion, acceptance, enjoyment, and personal empowerment.
This method includes three practical tools to maintain its momentum...
Through cognitive reframing, you learn to rewrite painful narratives into positive statements of belief, so you learn how to honor your values while creating an openness to receiving the love you want.
With mindfulness and body-activating exercises, we gently titrate all that anxious energy stored up in your body to build new neural networks in a healthier framework.
Through creative expression we externalize the inner world, and achieve self sovereignty by being in dialogue with the Essential Self. This is where the head and the heart get to have a conversation about putting insight into action, so that you not only think about things differently, but also feel differently.
STUDENTS OF THIS COURSE HAVE GAINED...
Deep insight into how and why you may be attracting (and attracted to) the same types of partners into your life, even when you've been doing everything "right" and it seemed like this time, they would be different.
An understanding of the biological affect of insecure relationships and how your survival brain can trigger you in conflict (sometimes beyond your conscious control) with partners that provide predictably unpredictable "rewards."
A deep understanding of how to practice emotionally honest communication, rather than acting impulsively or defensively.
The ability to apply new and creative methods for coping with a triggered response, and use a step-by-step process for changing automatic negative thought patterns into a hopeful and optimistic mindset.
"I have struggled with feeling rejected and getting triggered when my partners have asked for space, in the past. It always left me feeling overwhelmed and not good enough. The best thing about this course, for me, is that it taught me to identify how my fear is making me act in ways that push my partners away, and also see things from their perspective, without getting personally bent out of shape. I also really liked the practical exercises and the guided visualization with the art making. I have already recommended this course to several of my friends."

Hi, my name is Briana, and I like burritos. Actually, burritos + a good movie = heaven, in my book. I also love romance novels and campy science fiction shows (anyone else a die-hard Supernatural fan?). I also love being my own boss. Doing what I want to do, when I want to do it. And treating work like play.
My passion for working with attachment wounds and personal development stems from a rocky childhood. As a child of divorce, I bounced back and forth between my parents, across state lines.We lived below the poverty line for much of my young life. In my parents, I had an example of hard work but constant struggle.
I became a high achiever to compensate. It served me well professionally, until my struggles with relationships in adulthood tore down everything I had accomplished.
In adulthood, I experienced roller coaster relationships, and ultimately wound up a divorced, single mom. Then, after losing my job due to budget cuts, within a six-month time frame, one after another, both my parents and my brother were diagnosed with serious, chronic illnesses. And the new partner I had fallen madly in love with– the one all the raw parts of myself wanted so desperately to please and keep – couldn’t prioritize me. When he left, my heart broke anew, and I miscarried, without realizing I had been pregnant. I felt my soul was split wide open.
As I came face-to-face with my greatest fears, I knew I had to find the grace on the other side, or collapse into a victimized identity. I decided to dive straight down into my demons, and wrote a book about attachment and grief. Ultimately, I found several other contributors willing to share their stories of grief, and we got it published!
Writing the book emboldened me to shed my shame, and talk about these things in a way I had never thought I would feel safe doing. This led to creating the curriculum for my online courses in personal development, and building an online community for support. Much to my delight, both caught fire, and I have never looked back!

IF YOU'RE STILL ON THE FENCE, CONSIDER...

For a fraction of what you would spend in time and money on counseling or therapy, this course delivers tangible results, in only 3 lessons worth of fun and easy experiential instruction.
ALL THE THINGS ARE POSSIBLE FOR YOU...
You don't have to be perfect before attracting, recovering or revitalizing passionate love. You don't have to have it all figured out, right now. It's okay to be human. It's okay to be in process. But reigniting the flames of passion in your love life starts once you decide and commit to loving in the ways you've always desired, and refusing to accept anything other than a next-level life and relationship.
You cannot make radical changes, or attract love and abundance into your life, alone. And you certainly can't do it with the same behavioral patterns and mindset you've always had.
Transformation is rarely linear, sometimes progress feels like fear, and trust is a verb. If you see the potential there, why not give it a shot?
It’s not hopeless.
It is worth it.
And if a little voice inside just cried, “Yaaaaasss!” while fist-pumping the air, you are in the right place.
It's time to take the first step towards changing the trajectory of your relationship(s).
So, let’s get started!
And there is no risk involved with a 14-day money-back guarantee!
"The most helpful thing for me was the chart where we map out our defensive, surface-structure communications, and then try to figure out what the more honest and authentic deep-structure communication might be. It gave me a lot of "ah ha" moments that actually helped me develop more empathy for my partner, when I thought he was just being controlling and manipulative. Now, I am a lot slower to react or jump to conclusions when I feel triggered."
