Dedicate a weekend to learning the Skills of Love

The 10 Relationship Enhancement® Skills can help you solve the mysteries of relationships.

Mastering the Mysteries of Love (MML) Workshops for Couples who are:





Take a weekend for just the two of you to nurture your relationship. Concentrate on nothing else. Give it all you have.  It’s up to you to decide when to tend your relationship. It’s up to us to give you the skills to keep your love alive!

Learn the secret: Love isn’t magic, it’s skill!!

Day one you learn to fully express yourself, understand at a deep level, find and express positives, and change conflict patterns. Day two you build on the core skills, learn effective problem solving, replace nagging with reinforcement, stop patterns of conflict, and build affection activities.

Each Mastering the Mysteries of Love workshop is small (3-8 couples), and couple discussions are private.

Workshops are intended for couples who wish to increase overall relationship satisfaction and for couples who want to begin to open channels of caring and love in their relationship.
