A New Way to Love

(formerly known as “Couplehood as a Spiritual Path”)

Communication, communication, communication… It’s commonly heard that communication is a key to marriage. But it’s not always easy. Divorce rates that hover around 50% remind us that marriage takes work.

“A New Way to Love” is a 6-week marriage enrichment program that invites the healing presence of God into your relationship. The workshop provides tools that are both practical and insightful to help couples both nurture the good in their relationship and deal with its inevitable tension. A fundamental element of the program is learning the Imago Dialogue, a simple technique that teaches a new way to speak and a new way to listen. In addition, whether yours is sizzlin’ or fizzlin’, “A New Way to Love” will provide the support and tools to strengthen your relationship.

The workshop is not currently being offered. Click here to see the flyer of our most recent workshop to learn more.
