Lay the foundation for creating the thriving relationship you have always wanted together. The Getting the Love You Want workshop has helped thousands of couples worldwide move from an unconscious to a conscious relationship, rediscover safety, sustain deep connection, and experience joyful aliveness.
Based on Imago Relationship Therapy, this approach views couplehood as a spiritual path. As you engage in the experiences of this weekend, you will discover the innate healing power of connection and the profound spiritual potential in your intimate partnership.

- Proven concepts and tools that work in real-life relationships
- New ways to talk that remove negativity
- How your relationship can heal the wounds of childhood
- Caring behaviors that transform any relationship into an instrument of healing and growth.
