This weekend seminar is designed to give couples some of the essential tools they need to have thriving and healthy relationships. Based on the latest research in the field of marriage education including the work of Dr. John Gottman, Dr. Harville Hendrix, Dr. John Gray and many others, couples will learn what works to bring true relational intimacy and what things to avoid that can harm a relationship.

  • Identify your hidden expectations
  • Handle your dissapointments
  • Identify and value your differences
  • Better resolve your disagreements and conflicts

  • Maximize your time together


This seminar is hosted over a single, two day weekend from 9am to 5pm each day. Registration includes instruction, all materials, light snacks and drinks. Participants will have an hour lunch break each day (please bring your own lunch or take time to enjoy many of the great local restaurants in the area).
