Us Elevated- A Couples Getaway at Bryce Canyon
February 2 @ 8:00 am - February 3 @ 12:30 pm$599.00
Have you invested much fun or focus into your relationship lately? We spend a lot of time, money, and energy keeping our bodies fed and healthy, kids busy and educated, homes comfortable and safe, minds entertained and stimulated. How about your most important partnership?
This workshop is truly one of the best investments you could make, and it’s happening in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
What do you DO at Bryce Canyon in the winter? It’s actually my favorite time of year to visit. The crowds are gone. The hoodoos are topped with sugary snow, the air is crisp and clean, the hiking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing are GREAT! Being at Bryce during the winter is a best kept secret! Look HERE and HERE to see more on that.
As for the workshop, the Gottman 7 Principles workshop (see below for full schedule) is a find for couples at any stage in their relationship. It’s based on decades of data and research regarding relationship satisfaction, and follows the outline of the groundbreaking book, 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work, by John Gottman.
Many people shy away from marriage workshops because they are worried about self-disclosure or embarrassment in a group. I can guarantee there will be none of that here. Fun, positivity, and time to make your life better together, offered in a place that begs you to connect. You will have time to enjoy the scenery and each other while developing skills to strengthen closeness and increase intimacy.
I love the atmosphere in Bryce Canyon. And the thought of a cozy retreat. I love the great information in a Gottman workshop. The two combined are like a great marriage! (Read more about the presenter HERE.)
