After 28 years of supporting couples, we have found that this immersive approach—based on experiential learning—greatly accelerates positive change and growth. It delivers healing and lasting change, at one third of the cost of private therapy.

You’ll have the advantage of learning from a real couple. We share what has helped us in our 30-year jour
ney as two stubborn, opinionated, and often incompatible people… who love each other. Watching us model working through charged issues makes it much easier to do so yourselves.

I never imagined that we could make this much progress. I am impressed and grateful for all the effort, love, and knowledge you bring to these weekends. The tools are amazing, but your dedication to every participant is what makes the magic.
