LIVE on April 8 – Five #codebreakers  will assemble to strap Fifty Shades of Grey into the Red Room and have our way with it. 

We’ll explore the ways in which this phenomenon used “traditional” values and ideals of love to go viral, as well as the role controversy played in its propagation.

Join Gina Fiedel Grizwald Grim Stephanie Sims Thomas E. Hanna | BlogPhoto.tv and 50 Shades Virgin Kristin Drysdale for an in depth look at the triggers and factors at play in the 50 shades phenomenon.

Pandemic Code: Viral Partners

Pandemic Code: Viral Partners

Unlock the mystery of Attachment Theory with Craig Calvert, Kristin Drysdale, Stephanie Sims, and Grizwald Grim to examine why some people are content to stay with one partner, while others bounce from one person to the next, seeming to be in an ever-lasting search for happiness and security.

————————-

What is Attachment Theory?

Attachment theory suggests early interactions with parents lead to the formation of attachments that reflect self-perceptions and a measure of one’s self-worth. This foundation leads to expectations about intimate relationships and is so deeply rooted in cognitive conditioning that it affects relationships for the rest of one’s life.

Three Main Attachment Styles:

Secure Attachment:

Ambivalent Attachment:

Avoidant Attachment:   

Tune in to discover your own attachment style and, most importantly, learn more about the factors that promote attachment security and relational well-being so you can stop bouncing and start really loving your life.

Love is in the air

Love is in the air

As we get distracted by all of the heart shaped candies, chocolates, and jewelry, we should step back to ask ourselves why? Why are we so focused on the things that represent love rather than the love itself? 

Continuing our conversation about the meme of princesses, The Codebreakers​ are going to take a deep dive into the objectification culture we are living in, which has invaded not only our notion of the self (and others) but also our notion of love. Is the media to blame for the continued development and expansion of objectification culture?

Or is it all just a struggle for power?

The objectification of women can be traced throughout history, before the media had the presence it has in our society today. So do our views on love, the self, and others have less to do with the media and more to do with struggles of power, security, and our biological need to reproduce? And if it is a struggle for power, what indicates the powerful from the weak? Does a powerful woman fit the same mold as a powerful man? Are princesses the epitome of the powerless woman or are they an archetype that is attempting to transition with the power shifts seen in current culture?

Join us for a lively discussion about objectification, Valentine’s Day, the power struggle, and I’m sure much, much more. If you’re curious, here’s some materials we’re using as references for this particular episode:
