This program is  suitable for all couples who want to enrich their relationship. This includes happily married couples who want to strengthen and deepen their relationship, for couples who want to iron out some kinks in their relationship, as well as for couples in distress.  Pre-marital couples who want to prepare and learn how to make love last for a lifetime, will benefit from this program.

Based on Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and the best selling book, "Hold Me Tight:Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love" by Sue Johnson, Ph.D.

seven out of ten couples move from marital distress to repair through Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.

In a relaxed and beautiful setting, you will learn about the new science of love (based on 100's of research studies).  Love is no longer a mystery.  If you understand how love works, you can make it grow and last.  You can improve, strengthen and even transform your relationship from where ever it is right now, using the tools and information that you will take away from this weekend.

In this workshop you will learn:

How to deepen your already existing strengths;
