Us Elevated– A Couples Getaway at Bryce Canyon

October 27, 2017 @ 8:00 am - October 28, 2017 @ 11:30 am

Have you invested in your relationship lately? We spend a lot of time, money, and energy keeping our bodies fed and healthy, homes comfortable and safe, minds entertained and stimulated. 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.

The Gottman 7 Principles workshop is great for couples at any stage in their relationship. It is 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.  I can’t wait to combine the two! (Read more about the presenter HERE.)
