This renowned, intensive, two-day workshop for couples, married or unmarried, provides the insights and methods needed to discover the joyous and even spiritual, potential that awaits us in a committed relationship. By learning how to transform their relationship through personal change and growth, couples often receive from this two-day workshop, the benefit of three to six months of weekly couple's therapy. This workshop provides a profound benefit for couples who seek to enrich a good relationship, are beginning a relationship, are in a difficult relationship, want to resolve long-standing conflicts, and for those who are near break up or divorce and want to decide if the relationship can be saved. This workshop also provides a rare venue for therapists, counselors, clergy members and others who work with couples to gain invaluable professional skills. The workshop consists of audio-visual instructions, written exercises, guided imagery, live demonstrations of necessary communication skills and life changing processes that couples actively put into practice during the weekend. Although couples come together in a large group to hear presentations, you share only with your partner, as confidentiality and safety is maintained throughout the workshop.
