The Six Dimensions of Love

Supporting organizations and groups in
creating a firm foundation of relatedness

Designed specifically for churches, synagogues, mosques, schools and other groups committed to the health and well-being of couples and families.

Our expectations for our relationships are higher than ever. This makes it much more challenging and, potentially, much more rewarding to be in a successful relationship. The six ancient classical definitions of love are still relevant today. This program provides:

 

  • Help and support for couples

  • Beneficial for all relationships

  • Support your spiritual mission

  • Participants will master communication practices proven to significantly improve all relationships and interactions

  • Enhance the social fabric and culture of your community

Offered as two half-days or one full day workshop. We are open to discussing whatever financial arrangements are a best fit for your community. Tuition is typically $100 per couple for the entire program with 10-20 couples attending.

We donate half the proceeds back to the sponsoring organization.
