Getting the Love You Want is a weekend workshop for couples in all stages of relationship. The workshop teaches you the Imago dialogue which is a simple, respectful and effective tool that allows you to talk with your partner about the things that really matter. The workshop is a way to improve your relationship, effectively and immediately. Couples learn new tools for communication, ways to turn conflicts into opportunities for personal growth, and rediscover the joy of being together and feeling connected. By the end of the workshop, couples leave feeling far more positive about their relationship and the workshop closes with finding ways to make sure your life is full of caring and romance.
During the workshop we teach you how to use the Imago Dialogue. This is a powerful approach to exploring deep emotional issues and restoring lost connection. We will ask for volunteer couples that can be coached in front of the class through demonstrations, and then give you plenty of time to practice and apply the dialogue to the insights you develop throughout the workshop. There’s always help close by if you get stuck!
Through exercises that you share with your partner, you will explore some of your emotional history, and learn how that influences both the reason for your choice of partner and also the reason that you may both be drawn, either now or later, into a power-struggle. Activities include lectures, written exercises, guided imagery, and live demonstrations of communication skills and processes.
