Although they start out with love, hopes, and dreams, many relationships end in divorce. All couples have to face challenges. All relationships have ups & downs. Some couples even live parallel lives that rarely touch. However, researchers have now identified success patterns that enable couples to have relationships that not only succeed but also thrive and flourish.

The good news is that these patterns are not fixed. They can be learned. Actually, brain research shows that we can all learn to enhance these patterns. In fact, couples that have learned these patterns end up having long-term satisfying relationships. However, rather than trying to learn these patterns by trial & error, you can greatly increase the quality of your intimate relationship with systematic training and coaching.

During this 4-evening course, you will learn:

1. Strategies for changing mind-body states, which will enable you to move out of stress and negativity and into resourcefulness and creativity.
2. Approaches to understanding and influencing, which will aid you in being more effective in dealing with your partner.
3. Methods to enhance and enrich your emotional bond, which will help you to improve the quality of your relationship.

All relationships can be strengthened and made more fulfilling. This program offers you an opportunity to enhance and replenish yours.
