Event description


Join Relationships Experts, Carl & Kenya Stevens (Rakhem Seku) hosting a yearly New Paradigm Relationship Conference in downtown Asheville, NC from Friday, September 5th – 8th 2019 at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel.

Modern relationships are going through a major transformation. Lasting partnerships can only endure during these times when all parties become truly authentic, creative, courageous and spiritually connected!

Authenticity is not the norm in western culture, in fact, we were acculterated NOT to be authentic, in order to save face, or please others. It takes tools and practice, to become an authentic version of the personality - especially when considering the various changes humans go through in relationships, over time.

What you or your spouse want today might change tomorrow, but how will these shifts be communicated? Will they be communicated at all? The New Paradigm Relationships Conference will provide a system of communication that creates space for harmonious conversations to flow naturally; expressing difficult emotions is what you will be supported with - a system to make it easier.

Creativity is the next step - utilizing new brushes to create new paintings, pulling out an entirely new canvas can be challenging for couples when they've already laid a foundation. And it's just as challenging for singles to start over, again and again, attemtping relationship. Creativity is about sponteniety, dynamism and fun! The New Paradigm Relationships conference will introduce creative ways to resolve typical concerns and WIN at navigating challenges together!

Creativity is a mandatory element in the creation and re-creation of relationship!

Finally, courage and spiritual cultivation are key. The courage to realize that taking personal responsibility and spiritual growth are the hallmark of love and the foundation for being loving... In fact, the purpose of relationship is growth! The conference will provide exercises, tools and processes that support you in taking personal responsbility for everything that occurs in and around your relationship - eradicating the old blame and shame model of the west!

All of this and MORE will be the subject of this special three day event held here in Asheville, in the heart of the great Appalacian mountains! Come for the beauty, come for the renewed spirit of New Paradigm Relating! Come to meet relationships experts, Carl and Kenya as they take you on an oddesy of archetype, spirituality and practical, loving shifts into a more Progressive Love!!!

Carl and Kenya are the subject of the first reality series created in Asheville NC, featured dozens of times on national television and radio, and authors of The Art of Open Relating. The Stevens are firm advocates of empowering the individual to create the exact life they desire. The New Paradigm Relationship Intensive is an experimential conference and polayshop designed to give you the tools, community, information, and practice to support us in this emergent culture.

This intensive will reveal some of the most useful and cutting edge information on mastering your life, relationships, and spiritual growth. Progressive Love is a philosophy The Stevens have created to heal and assist their own 23 year marraige, it entials rich content around how to love yourself and others through realizing the power of personal responsibility.

Your purpose is to create the life you desire and that’s exactly what we’ll focus on throughout the weekend. You will leave with a new design for relating, one that harmonizes you with any partner you choose! Bring your partner or come alone - you will leave with an array of power tools to take forward as you carve The New Paradigm Relationship into your own life and indeed, create the new, sane, culture for human relations to flourish!
