The GETTING THE LOVE YOU WANT: A WORKSHOP FOR COUPLES is a weekend long retreat based on theories and exercises from the New York Times Bestselling book of a similar name by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D.
Imago therapy is a form of relationship work that focuses on teaching couples the importance of knowing their partner’s childhood challenges. Using curiosity and wonder we create a broader sense of safety, so that you can grow in deeper connection with one another.
The Imago Workshop provides you with a distraction-free weekend focused on your relationship. You will learn to validate your conflicts, power struggles and frustrations as predictable and even necessary aspects of a committed relationship.
We will present, demonstrate and practice essential relational tools that will help resolve conflicts and move you to a more meaningful connection as a couple. You'll practice the skills that will allow you to increase safety and reduce reactivity in your relationship.
You will leave the workshop with a jointly created vision of what your ideal relationship will look like and knowledge of the tools necessary to take you on that journey.
