Women today leading hectic lives rarely have time to focus on love and intimacy. But renowned author, speaker and psychotherapist Gary Nueman will do just that in his talk, “What Women Want, What Men Want: Love and Intimacy,” on Sunday, Nov. 14, during the Chabad Women’s Circle Spa for the Soul.
The event, which will take place at Chabad Center of Kendall/Pinecrest, 8700 SW 112 St., is open to all women in the community. Nueman will share some insight on relationships and enhancing relationships.
Nueman, psychotherapist and New York Times bestselling author has written many books such as Emotional Infidelity, In Good Times & In Bad: Strengthening Your Relationship When the Going Gets Tough and the Money Gets Tight, and Helping Your Kids Cope With Divorce the Sandcastles Way. He is a frequent guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show as well as appearing many times on Today, The View, NPR and many others.
He and his work have been featured in print media including Time, People, Parents, Washington Post, USA Today and others. His upcoming book, Connect to Love, discusses his international research of over 500 women and their love relationships. He maintains a private practice on Miami Beach where he lives with his wife and five children.
Women juggle quite a bit these days, as they often try to balance familial responsibilities and work outside the home. Chabad Women’s Circle events provide women with the opportunity to relax, rejuvenate, and learn more about Jewish topics.
“The events are meant to create opportunities for women to relax, socialize with other women and learn about meaningful topics,” said Nechama Harlig, coordinator of the Chabad Women’s Circle.
The Spa for the Soul is intended to offer women a morning of relaxation, spirituality and depth. The event begins with a continental breakfast and registration from 9:30 to 10 a.m. then provides women with a choice of three workshops. Women can attend the workshop of their choice from 10 ro 11 a.m. They can choose from:
A. Edible Arrangements in which participants will gain tips on how to arrange fruits beautifully and how to use the tools of the trade with Herman from Edible Arrangements in Pinecrest.
B. Kosher Cuban Cooking. At this presentation, participants will enjoy a cooking demonstration featuring the most popular Cuban foods with Raquel Benson.
C. Ancient Medicine for a Modern World. Women will have the opportunity to learn about the Ancient Art of Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs and other treatments and how they can help you to restore and maintain your optimal health naturally. Learn about the mind body connection and how it affects your health with Jane Kaufman, Board Certified Acupuncture Physician.
Keynote speaker Gary Nueman will speak at 11 a.m. His talk will be followed by a question and answer session. Books will be for sale and Nueman will be available for book signing after the event. The insightful talk will be followed by a catered gourmet lunch, spa treatments, raffles and boutiques.

The group hosts many events throughout the year. Each event offers unique activities and demonstrations of interest to women.
“I always seem to get inspiration from the Chabad Women’s Circle events,” said Michelle Levi, who participates in all the Chabad Women Circle events. “There is always something relevant and positive to take home and implement in my own life. There is always something that the women can relate to personally. The events are enjoyable because the topics are always interesting and it’s fun to hang out with other women.”
