The Seven Principles Workshop for couples is based on the internationally acclaimed research of Dr.John Gottman as presented in his New York Times Bestselling book:
Do you have difficulty communicating and understanding each other? Are you stuck, arguing in circles about the same issues? Are you in a good relationship and would like to make it even better? Are you beginning a relationship you want to last – Seek to enhance your relationship with our spouse or partner – Have experienced conflict and want to learn tools to resolve it – Want to improve the intimacy and friendship in your relationship – Are already in counseling and want to enrich the experience – Have considered seeing a marriage or relationship counselor – or do you just want to enjoy a romantic and adventurous weekend or week long get away with your partner while investing in your relationship at the same time.Then this workshop retreat experience in Glenwood Springs, Colorado is for you!Research shows that on average, couples wait six years from the first signs of problems before they seek help. That is like waiting six years with cancer before seeking medical care. Please don’t wait until your relationship is terminal.
The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work workshop is the culmination of over four decades of research by one of the countries top relationship experts. The Seven Principles workshop is designed for ALL couples in a committed relationship.
One of the reasons couples get stuck in perpetual conflict is a lack of education and training, as well as, not feeling safe in their interactions. We are willing to train for marathons or seek education to further our careers, or go to a financial adviser to guide us in our investments, yet we go into marriage with virtually no training or tools to have available when inevitable conflict comes.
