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?
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.
