Our one day premarital and pre-commitment workshop Start Right, Stay Connected is an excellent way for couples considering a long-term commitment to invest in the health of their partnership.
Led by Caroline and Jason Bernhardt-Lanier, the Start Right, Stay Connected workshop is designed for both heterosexual and same-sex couples. Participants will learn concrete tools to build a successful and fulfilling long-term relationship, including:
- Relationship stages and “love languages”
- Questions to ask before getting engaged or saying “I do”
- Practical tools to deal with conflict
- Communication skills through the Imago Dialogue
- Ways to nurture connection and intimacy
Presented in a fun and interactive way, the workshop focuses on practical relationship skills and topics of greatest interest to couples. You will be able to enjoy the company of other couples while maintaining privacy — all exercises are done independently.
