The Scoop: As a love and relationship coach, Angela N. Holton’s mission is to transform the way people date and build relationships. Angela founded Love Sanctuary as a portal for women around the world to re-discover their own inner sanctum and to learn practical and strategic tools of self-love, self-discovery, and self-awareness. Earlier this year, Love Sanctuary’s emphasis on self-love organically expanded into focusing exclusively on single women around the world and helping them navigate through the inevitable ups and downs of love and dating in a more modern and complex dating world. Her signature Conscious Dating Method™ has awakened the hearts and minds of people seeking answers by offering tips and strategies that work. The revolutionary dating narrative of the Conscious Dating Method is currently being discussed in live workshops, online courses, a book, blogs, podcasts, and even a nationwide tour, all focused on making dating better.
Dating coach Angela N. Holton works closely with single women in the dating scene, and she has heard many of them voice frustration with the current dating climate. Her clients want to get in a relationship and settle down, but they can become worn down by casual daters, flaky matches, and ghosted conversations.
Angela said some of her clients often give up hope completely and wind up just going through the motions of dating without putting in the care and effort required to create a genuine relationship.
“I sometimes see that people are not necessarily showing up as their best selves in dating,” Angela told us. “Many don’t even know who or what that is.”
Angela is on the front lines of the dating world, so she can relate to the obstacles, struggles, and concerns of her fellow singles.
In the past few years, Angela has endeavored to date with greater intention and live the lessons she teaches to her clients. As a result, she has made many lovely personal connections, and she said she has every confidence that the relationship of her dreams is on its way to her.
As she waits for those stars to align, Angela continues to be an inspiration to singles from all walks of life. Her positive attitude and can-do mindset have encouraged clients to keep swiping, dating, loving, and hoping — even when things don’t always go their way.
“It can happen in an instant,” Angela said. “And that’s how it happens. Tomorrow you could meet someone you didn’t even know today.”
In 2019, Angela witnessed many transformational stories both personally and professionally, and she was gracious enough to share some of her main takeaways and developments with our readers.
“In some ways, it was a very tough year for me,” she said. “However, threaded through my challenges were these amazing miracles, which made it one of my best years yet. That’s the beauty of life — joy and pain co-exist together and make for a beautiful life.”
The Conscious Dating Method™ Sets a New Dating Paradigm
Angela created The Conscious Dating Method™ (CDM) to change the way single women (and men, too) approached the dating scene. This new dating paradigm, which is also offered in an 8-week online course: “The Conscious Dating Method Course: Become The ONE You Want & Attract The Love You Desire,” is all about cultivating greater self-awareness and leading singles to dating breakthroughs and revelations.
“The CDM approach is revolutionary in the way it’s changing women’s dating experiences and how they’re showing up in dating relationships,” Angela said. “It’s sort of a manual to relationships. It takes the conversations deeper than the dating tactics and situational dating.”
The Conscious Dating Method is less about what you wear on a first date and more about what attitudes, beliefs, and expectations you bring to that first date. Angela dives deep to make sure singles show up to every dating experience ready to find love and make every second of their time count.
Whether they need to heal from a breakup or gain confidence as an online dater, Angela can walk singles through the changes they need to set themselves up for greater relationship success.
“This is work we each have to address if we want to change what we see and what we attract,” she said. “It changes by looking within first. That’s what The Conscious Dating Method strives to do for us.”
A critical part of the coursework is to learn self-examination and reflect on one’s past behaviors, habits, and patterns in relationships. Each week in the online course focuses on a different dating tool and relationship skill, building students up and giving them a renewed sense of self.
Currently, Angela only offers the course for women because she wants to create a safe space for them to speak about dating and share their frustrations, fears, and vulnerabilities. The community spirit and loving support system can help women practice dating and prepare for a relationship in ways they never have before.
In October 2019, Angela took her healing message one step further and released her first solo book project, “The Conscious Dating Method Workbook Journal: Deepen Understanding of Yourself & Improve Your Relationships.” This workbook was designed to be a companion for single women who are actively dating and want to learn more about themselves as they go. It doesn’t matter if they’re divorced, widowed, or never married, the book has insights that can help them thrive and find the relationship they seek.
Angela said she plans to release another The Conscious Dating Method book in the coming year to further support singles on the journey to love.
“The workbook was created to ask women the deeper, thought-provoking questions that they’ve probably never asked themselves before,” she said. “It is just the beginning for women to start searching from within for what they’re looking for inside and outside of themselves.”
Carrying a Positive Message Across the Country
Angela considers herself a seeker in her work and in her life. She seeks deeper understanding, personal growth, and true happiness, and she’s always open to trying something new to get where she wants to be.
In 2019, she decided to embark on her first-ever seven-city nationwide tour as a way of pushing her boundaries and sharing her revolutionary coursework with audiences in big cities from coast to coast. Instead of working solely behind the scenes as a virtual coach, Angela has taken to the stage, the classroom, and the lecture hall to make her voice heard and be present with her clients.
As a modern dating coach, Angela has shifted her focus from exclusively online coursework to conduct more in-person workshops, retreats, and events related to conscious dating and relationships.
“Relationships require our constant assessment, self-knowledge, reflection, learning, and growth,” she said. “We often don’t want to do the work to connect and build meaningfully with someone. The Conscious Dating Method was created to support us, collectively, in returning to deeper relationship connections and quite possibly to help us create more meaningful partnerships in ways that maybe we’ve never witnessed before. The story always goes back to learning to love ourselves, first, and then building relationships with greater emotional intelligence, communication, vulnerability, and transparency.”
Once the nationwide tour is complete, Angela said she plans to launch an international tour to include Canada and the U.K. Her ultimate goal is to change the dating landscape around the world, and she has taken steps to work with other dating coaches and other professionals to promote better strategies that can foster authentic connections.
Angela said she hopes to create a ripple effect of love that touches the hearts of couples, families, and communities everywhere.
“I want to be a part of healing the planet one heart at a time,” she told us. “This is my mission — my life’s work. This is about so much more to me than dating and seeking love. This is about our becoming love.”
Coaching Women to Love Themselves & Date With Purpose
Angela’s coaching practice delivers practical dating tips to help individuals build confidence and become the best possible version of themselves. Personal growth is at the heart of everything Angela teaches because that’s the first step to changing someone’s energy, and thereby changing their lives.
“Self-Love and self-worth are at the core of anything we seek and desire,” she said. “My work is unique because I teach self-love principles that are real and tangible for my clients.”
Angela has seen many single women come into their own after adopting her dating and relationship strategies, and she shared a few of their testimonials with us.
“Angela is an amazing coach,” said Mary, a client from Miami, Florida. “She has a natural ability to teach and inspire, making you think outside the box while being there for you every step of the way.”
Although Angela’s coursework can be challenging on a mental and emotional level, those who embrace her methodology witness changes in their lives and often times quite quickly..
“Angela’s Conscious Dating Method was a game-changer for me,” said Cindy, who hails from Bermuda. “Since enrolling in the course, I have been dating and having fun. If you are ready to date more, have more fun, love, and learn more about yourself, I highly recommend Angela’s Conscious Dating Method.”
Angela lays the groundwork for many heartwarming love stories. For instance, a New Yorker named Porsche took the CDM course, signed up for a dating site for the first time ever, and met a wonderful man who has become a long-term boyfriend. The couple has been together for seven months, and Porsche said she has Angela to thank.
“I would not have opened up to online dating if it wasn’t for Angela’s insight, perspective, and advice,” she said. “I am all around in a better place since taking Angela’s Conscious Dating Method Course and have grown as a person. I still use the tools, especially as my new relationship continues to blossom.”
Angela N. Holton Inspires Singles to Seek True Relationships
The Conscious Dating Method is more than a dating strategy — it’s a love philosophy that can change everything about how singles attract dates and cultivate relationships. Over the years, Angela has coached singles through some of their lowest lows and seen them reach their highest highs by practicing self-love and intentionality.
Angela said her own dating experiences have taught her a lot about herself and what she desires in a partnership. An earlier dating encounter this past year, demonstrated to her “the potential of someone quickly showing up into your life and changing it forever. You can go from hopeless single to love-struck couple overnight, so remain positive and hopeful.” She firmly believes that one chance romance can radically change someone’s life, and she encourages her clients to hold out for “The One.”
“If we desire a healthy, loving relationship, it behooves us to be fully ready and prepared when it shows up,” Angela said. “That’s what The Conscious Dating Method is about — dating for practice, preparation, and deeper understanding of our own core values and those of our ideal mates.”
