Join Paula and Yael for this exciting weekend workshop specifically designed for gay and lesbian couples. We know from personal experience that living with another person is the hardest thing we ever have to do and the job for which we are least prepared. What makes being a couple and living with our partner so hard is that no one helps us understand that our differences are normal. So when we realize that our partner thinks differently, acts differently, and wants different things than we do, we get very anxious and sometimes even angry and we try either to convince them we are “right” or bury our own opinion in order to manage our anxiety. To create a relationship where both of our realities can exist and we can still feel connected is not an easy thing to do. Therefore, we need a structure and a map that can help us.
The” Getting The Love You Want” Couples Weekend Workshop teaches you how to reconnect with your partner at a deeper level. Couples have the opportunity to create the trust, passion and intimacy that first brought you together. Discover a path of emotional healing and experience a deep level of empathy and connection. Based on the best-selling book, “Getting the Love You Want” by Dr. Harville Hendrix, Ph.D, and his wife Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D., this weekend seminar is designed to support ALL couples (married, engaged, committed, struggling, etc.) to experience their relationship in a new way. Participants will learn and practice skills that interrupt conversational bad habits and reactive cycles that keep them from being able to be strong individuals in connection.

Testimonial: “When I signed up for Yael & Paula’s workshop, I anticipated identifying some points of conflict between me and my partner and gaining some tools to resolve them. What I received was exponentially more valuable because I, through my partner’s loving support, healed my own internal conflict and learned how to be more genuinely present for him. Paula & Yael are wonderful teachers.” Workshop Participant
***Group sharing is not a requirement.*** Most of us haven’t been exposed to a group at its best. This weekend can be an experience of that. The weekend consists of educational lectures done in a group setting and private communication between you and your partner. This is an educational workshop, not therapy or group therapy, but the learning and results are comparable to 6 months of weekly therapy.
