About Us


PAX Programs Incorporated is in the business of educating women about men. PAX, the Latin word for “peace” and an acronym for Partnership, Adoration and Xtasy, creates peace between the sexes by providing unique and immediately useful information to women.

PAX’s flagship program, Celebrating Men, Satisfying Women®, is a weekend educational workshop for women, which transforms the way they relate to men. It facilitates the reconciliation many women are seeking with men and outlines the skills necessary for women to realize powerful, satisfying relationships with all of the men in their lives.

To date, thousands of women, age 17 to 83, have completed Celebrating Men, Satisfying Women, and a majority of them have attended advanced workshops. PAX Programs’ workshops are now offered in major cities including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, and in other Southern California and Pacific Northwest cities.

It’s not unusual for women to travel from Canada and Europe to do the Celebrating Men, Satisfying Women workshop series. In 2003 and 2004, PAX Programs conducted its first workshops in the United Kingdom.
