where

This marriage enrichment happens completely online, with a couple who will facilitate the experience for you. Each one- to two-hour Zoom session will include a video, experiential learning and private interaction with your spouse.

what

You will work through common themes like communicating feelings, understanding your personality styles, listening and being heard, and keeping your relationship a priority.

Since each session deals with a different aspect of marriage, it is important that you are able to attend each one. While there will be some group interaction, your sharing will be between the two of you. You will love having this time to pause and reflect privately and create a dialogue with each other.

Whether you are newly married or have celebrated many anniversaries, these virtual date nights are designed to help you create a happy, fulfilling married life for you both.

*virtual weekend experience details

Similar to the “Date Night” Experience described above, the weekend enrichment happens completely online, with a trained married couple or couples to facilitate the experience. But rather than meet one night a week for seven weeks, you’ll meet Friday evening until Sunday afternoon, with breaks at meals and overnight, of course.

You’ll need to arrange for a quiet, distraction-free environment as well as a computer with a good internet connection and web camera. We will send you all materials and information needed prior to the weekend.
