Short description
Discover how to bring more ease, connection, and fun into your relationship by deepening trust, increasing collaboration, reducing blame and conflict, and jumpstarting creative problem-solving.

Join us with your sweetie, partner, or spouse for this 5-hour workshop where you will learn how to bring more ease, connection, and fun into your relationship.

Do you find yourselves arguing about the same old things with no resolution?  Are blame and resentments creeping into your conversations? Or, are things generally going well, but you're looking for tips and practical tools to make things even better?

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn how empathy and self-expression work together for greater understanding.
  • Practice new ways of listening and speaking with each other for improved communication.
  • Share with each other in ways that give you each the opportunity to have more of what you want in your relationship.

You will leave the workshop with things you can start to do immediately to improve how you relate with each other.

This event is designed specifically for couples of all kinds -- this is an inclusive event for all ages, sexual orientations, race, religions, ethnicities, and levels of commitment.

Q1: I am single but hope to be in a relationship in the future.  Can I join this workshop? 

A: We invite you to participate in other events we are offering because we see those as a better fit.  This event is formatted for current couples and includes exercises relevant to partners.

Q2: My spouse or partner cannot (or does not want to) attend this workshop but I would like to participate as an individual  Is that OK?

A: Because the exercises and activities are all designed for current couples, we want to keep things simple in terms of the format.  In addition, we believe that couples can be most effective in supporting other couples and that the needs and interests of single people are more suited to other workshops we offer.
