Getting the Love You Want Imago Couple’s Workshop

Educational and experiential, the Getting the Love You Want workshop will give you a better understanding of your relationship, and teach you practical skills to deepen your connection.
You will privately explore your own family history and develop an understanding of what drew you to your partner, what is underneath the conflicts and stuckness in your relationship, and what you can do to create more peace, harmony, and understanding.

Relationships usually have a romantic and fun beginning and naturally progress into the power struggle phase, which is normal. This is when we start to see our differences and experience a disconnection. In the workshop, you will use conflict as an opportunity for growth, change, and mutual healing. Important clues lie in these disagreements that can be used to transform your relationship. Learning to discuss conflicts in a positive and respectful way is essential.

 

You will practice the Imago dialogue and other communication skills to help create a safe place so you can share your feelings with one another and feel more comfortable to be yourself. A lot of the work is done on your own, and no one is expected to “air their dirty laundry.” When couples do voluntarily share in the group, it is often inspiring and relatable for many others. Confidentiality is emphasized throughout the weekend.

 

By the end of the workshop, you will leave with a variety of tools you can use to help your relationship, as well as more compassion and understanding for yourselves and one another. 

 

Cost:
The workshop fee is $850 per couple for the weekend. Early registration discount of $50 per couple if payment is received 1 month prior to the workshop. These are educational workshops and not reimbursable through health insurance. Couples who have previously taken a workshop can attend for $650.

Keeping the Love You Find - Imago Workshop For Individuals

Experiential and educational, the Getting the Love You Want workshop is not a quick fix, but a journey. It will give you a better understanding of your relationship, and you will learn practical skills to deepen your connection.

 

For individuals who are single or in a relationship, Keeping the Love You Find is a workshop to help deepen your understanding of the patterns you have in relationship with others.  Perhaps you want to understand why you can’t meet the right person or keep finding yourself in relationships that are not fulfilling.  Maybe you are starting out with someone new and want to learn how to create and sustain a committed relationship.  


This workshop was developed by Harville Hendrix and is based on his book Keeping the Love You Find. The lessons and experiences presented over the course of the weekend help you identify your childhood hurts and how they play out in your relationships. By learning new ways to attend to your childhood needs and new communication skills, your understanding and compassion for yourself grows.

You will come away with a growth plan that will help you attract and keep the love that you find.  There will be an opportunity to share in the group if you would like to do so, and it helps to know that we are more alike than we realize.

The workshop fee is $450 per person for the weekend. Early registration discount of $50 per person if payment is received 1 month prior to the workshop.

Learn to create connection through conversation. 

Safe Conversations Workshop for individuals and couples

With a breakthrough in neuroscience, we now know that it is possible to rewire the brain. This rewiring gives us the possibility to teach new relational skills in order to decrease anxiety and increase relational connection.

 

Safe Conversations was developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix and Dr. Helen LaKelly Hunt and was designed to bring the skills of listening, validating and empathizing into relationships and conversations.  Based on more than 20 years of research, this workshop will provide the practical tools needed to live a more relationally connected, compassionate and successful life—personally and professionally.

 

Talking is among the most dangerous things people do, and listening is the most infrequent. Broken communication leads to a lack of safety in conversations, creates conflict, and makes a thriving relationship impossible.


During the 4-hour workshop, you will receive skills to talk without criticism, listen without judgment, and connect beyond our differences.  When faced with chronic stress and conflict we can then implement these tools to drop our defenses and create a safe environment. Creating a safe space allows us to engage in trusting conversations with an ability to problem solve and create genuine relational connection. 

The workshop fee is $99 per person. 

Workshop Dates TBD
