Our relationships keep getting caught in the same traps. We find ourselves feeling hurt, defensiveness, or discouraged. This weekend is a chance to break loose from those habits through the powerful tools of empathy for ourselves and our partner. When we come from the place of self-appreciation we can express our requests free of guilt or blame.

As we develop the capacity to find our true motivation, rather than a sense of obligation, we are able to say “no” with compassion and say “yes” with real conviction.

Our kindness towards ourselves spills out towards our partner. The things that used to annoy us diminish as we deepen our understanding of our partner and ourselves.

Our attendees tell us that they appreciate the safety they feel in our workshops.

Register early as space is limited to four couples.

Cost per couple:  sliding scale $175-$315
