Still NEW to one another, and want to keep the SIZZLE ALIVE?
COMFORTABLE, but wondering where the FUN and ENERGY have gone?
Feeling TRAPPED, by a repetitive cycle of arguments and LONGING to CONNECT without conflict?
Near BREAK-UP, and wondering whether the relationship can SURVIVE?
If You Answered "Yes" To Any Of These Questions, This Workshop Is For You!
Transform Your Relationship In Two Days!
How many hours have you spent training to enrich your job, your hobbies, or your golf game?
And how many hours have you spent developing the skills to master the greatest challenge in the World...your Relationship?
If you're like most people you have likely spent 100's of hours perfecting your golf swing, and only 3 to 4 hours working with a relationship therapist. With little or no training it's no wonder couples begin struggling after 2 years in their relationship as they move from Infatuation (stage one), into the Power Struggle (stage two). In America, 50% of couples separate during stage two, never embracing the growth and healing work that is required to progress through this challening time and into stage three, Real Love.
Turn Your Conflict Into Deep Connection!
Most couples mistakenly assume that conflict in their relationship means they made the wrong partner selection. The purpose of conflict is to awaken you. Without conflict you would stop growing as a couple and individually. Every couple has a unique relationship blueprint that when followed, will grow and heal their relationship, moving them out of conflict, and into connection. During the workshop you will learn many new communication skills that you can use immediately to discover your relationship blueprint and transform your relationship.
Create The Relationship You Both Long For!
Couples need a road map to navigate through the conflicts of the Power Struggle. Unfortunately, most people were not raised knowing how to Manage Conflict, how to Create a Relationship Vision, and how to Increase Fun and Passion with their partners. We will give you all this and more. You will leave our workshop with a road map that will help you navigate through the next week and then guide you for the rest of your lives!
Happiness For Many Generations!
Family legacies are created and handed down from one generation to the next. Typically, the primary relationship training a child receives begins by observing the relationship patterns between his or her parents or caretakers. Therefore, your relationship model influences your child's development and later becomes the basis for your child's future partner selection. The good news here is that any work you do today to improve your relationship, has the power to transform your family legacy for generations to come.
Are you longing to Rewrite your Family Legacy?
Are you willing to invest in the Happiness of your Family for Many Generations?
Are you ready to embrace your own Personal Happiness and Satisfaction?
Are you ready to move through Conflict and into Connection?
Are you ready to restore the Passion and Intimacy in your relationship?
If you answered "Yes" to these questions ... REGISTER TODAY! We will guide you through the journey.

The basis for this workshop rises out of the Imago Theory developed by Drs. Harville Hendrix and Helen Hunt. It is comparable to 3 to 6 months of weekly therapy sessions in cognitive and experiential learning. It has been utilized by thousands of couples in twenty countries and is now available on 5 continents. It is not a quick fix. It is a realistic understanding of the path to a safe and passionate marriage or partnership, a roadmap of the journey, and the tools needed to get you there.
The workshop will provide the safety needed to fully focus on your partner, yourself and your relationship. By exploring childhood experience and romantic attraction you'll begin to understand the nature of your struggles in a very different way. You'll spend time alone and together reflecting and writing the details of your conscious and even unconscious needs in the relationship and then you'll share that information in a way that amplifies understanding and empathy.
Lectures, supported visually with the latest in presentation graphics, about the purpose and dynamics of your relationship.
Individual reflection and recording using the "Getting the Love You Want" Couples' Manual.
Demonstrations of communication skills.
Practicing new behaviors and skills with your partner.
This workshop is conducted in a group environment, and you may share as much or as little about yourself as you feel comfortable. The only time we ask you to say something about yourself is during the "icebreaker" at the beginning of Day One, and then again during a closing ceremony at the end of Day Two.At times we ask for volunteers to help demonstrate a particular communication skill.This is not group therapy. You could choose to share only with your partner in a safe, comfortable and confidential manner.
