Another Workshop to inspire us all – May 2014


We just ended our weekend Getting the Love You Want workshop at the beautiful Liu Centre for Global Studies at UBC. I can’t even begin to write about how inspiring it was.

BobjLchCEAI9O1oAs usual the  couples arrived on Friday, feeling anxious and tentative about what was going to occur. Some even looked as if they wanted to run out of the room. As the night progressed, however, and we built safety together they were more able to relax. There was laughter, curiosity and much hope that they would feel positive change throughout the weekend. By the end of Friday evening we made a pact that we would all work our hardest to end all negativity, criticism  and  blame for the entire workshop and replace it with curiosity. If anyone fell off the wagon everyone agreed we would apologize and get back on track as quickly as possible. That in itself created hope and the opportunity to see one’s partner through different eyes.

By Saturday morning everyone was more open and patient. Then the transformation really began. Each partner worked to create safety in their relationships and the energy of the group helped everyone to feel supported to work they needed to do. Wow -what an honour it was to work with such amazing couples who really want to look at themselves and grow in their relationships so that they can be the partners they want to be. Everyone worked so hard and the benefits were clear.

Dare ya– For everyone who was at the workshop make sure you make a time to have a couple’s dialogue this week. For those of you who weren’t at the workshop please come to our next workshop November 14-16, 2014 and find out what all the fuss is about !
