GETTING THE LOVE YOU WANT: A New Way of Loving
Based on the best-selling book, Getting the Love You Want by Harville Hendrix Ph.D.,, this workshop grapples with the age-old question: Why is it that that special person you fell madly in love with seems to have overnight become a source of pain and hatred? And, how is it that the more you want to get close to your partner, the more you seem to fight?
This workshop teaches you how to defuse the power struggle by understanding that your frustrations derive from unmet childhood needs, and that you may be unconsciously trying to resolve them by resorting to your own childhood tactics. An extraordinary weekend experience for couples who want to become conscious of both the positive and negatives that drive the dynamics of their relationship, this workshop teaches you step-by-step dialogues and processes that release old self-defeating behaviors and focus energy on meeting your partner’s needs while honoring your own. After the workshop you will have a toolbox of communication skills that you can use to gradually reverse the downward spiral of animosity and conflict and co-create a relationship characterized by deeper compassion, respect for each other’s differences, and the capacity to be authentic.
