The Love Academy was launched four years ago in her living room with eight of her friends and has since evolved into, a series of relationships intensives designed to help women grow in their individual love knowledge base. This led her to travel to major cities around the country, sharing her transformational love relationships teachings and principles and touching the lives of over 1,500 individuals. The popularity of her Love Academy courses for women spawned a men’s only course, Men-tality, and what participants are calling a Relationships Revolution.
Jackson-Gandy says, “Traditional relationships advice only addresses the symptoms and problems of this epidemic, usually applying simplified how-to techniques that tend to lead to more confusion than resolution. These are band aids, and ineffective ones at that.” She stands her word that, The Love Lies delves deeper to unearth ten toxic beliefs that have been instilled in women from pre-school age, across regions, generations, ethnicities and even religion, influencing us and trapping us all in a web of illusions,” stated Jackson Gandy. These powerful “love lies” manipulate perceptions, create delusions that she calls “Love STD’s” – socially transmitted delusions – and perpetuate behaviors that sabotage our relationships.
The Love Lies is an eye-opening relationships book setting both single and married women free from chronic cycles of dissatisfaction and disappointment. According to the author, it offers a proven process to dismantle the lies, heal the mind and heart, and transform the American relationships paradigm forever.
