The Art and Discipline of Love Couples Communication Retreat

For all couples.

Our inability to handle personal criticism from loved ones is a common Achilles’ heel. The more deeply we love, the more fragile we feel. Soon, couples feel they are walking on eggshells, unable to express themselves honestly, and their love fades. Raising children and money magnify the problems even as they become the reason couples stay together. The result? Couples often remain legally married but psychologically divorced—in a minimum-security-prison marriage.

The biggest culprit is defensiveness. Active listening is a powerful solution, but it’s rarely used. Come learn Warren Farrell’s Cinematic Immersion, a method that enables couples to actively listen to their partner without feeling defensive. As you learn how to emotionally experience criticism, you simultaneously  learn the “art and discipline of love”—something you can practice at home to deepen your love throughout each week of your life.

Couples in any kind of relationship— parents who are married or divorced, newlyweds, siblings, or parents and children—can benefit from this work. This program is especially useful for health professionals in their work with clients and patients.
