- Questions to ask before saying “I do”
- Creating a relationship vision
- Using the Imago Dialogue before and after the ceremony to stay connected
- Follow-up resources for continued connection
We have several premarital/precommitment workshops scheduled – please see our events listing for dates and details!
Falling in love is the easy part… it’s staying in love that’s the real adventure!
Our Imago Connects Seminar is a lively and educational introduction to the basics of Imago Theory, an internationally recognized method of supporting people who desire a conscious and successful relationship. Both individuals and couples are encouraged to attend. During this three-hour course, participants will learn:
- Why we are attracted to certain people
- The stages of a relationship
- How the brain works “on love”
- Defensive behaviors & reactivity
- The basics of the Imago Dialogue – mirror, validate, empathize
The “quickening of my spirit at your sight”…
The Couplehood seminars combine real-life examples with simple exercises to give you the tools you need to transform your relationship. The six-session class is led by an Imago professional and includes educational components, real-life practice and DVD lessons. The course offers the opportunity to restore and deepen connection for couples, both within their partnership and for the group of couples who gather.
All of these programs will help couples:
- Learn a new way to talk and a new way to listen.
- Co-create a relationship vision.
- Acquire the skills to manifest this vision.
- Discover the uniqueness of one’s spouse.
