Couples Love Couples Retreats in Kemah
Initially, Peggy's husband , Doug, was apprehensive about going to an Imago workshop. Doug attended the workshop with Peggy and guess what happened? Doug (and Peggy), like many couples discovered that the comfortable safe weekend workshop retreats are transformational, hopeful and fulfilling.
Now Doug empathizes with reluctant husbands/partners
who may feel they were dragged to the workshop and is instrumental in providing a balanced environment ''for the guys"who may really want just to relax for the weekend, play golf, or watch the game. You will enjoy "Getting more of the love you want" in your relationship.
Many of the attendees are couples who love each other and have successful rewarding careers, yet have demanding lifestyles. When an argument or hurtful anger are better understood, then romance, joy, passion and fun can flourish again! Couples often discover their marriage and couples counseling is even more rewarding after attending the "Getting the Love You Want" workshop. Reluctant Partners, usually husbands, may ask the same question Doug asked the first time Doug considered going to a workshop with Peggy:
Resolve cycles of anger and blaming,
Get to the root of your problems and dissolve them,
Create romance, passion and fun,
Speak in a way your partner can hear you,
Show your partner empathy and compassion,
Respect your partner's point of view even if you don't agree,
Deepen your intimacy and connection,
Express appreciation for your partner,
Become your partners best friend,
Create the relationship of your dreams!
No self-disclosure is required; all work is done in private!
The format of the workshop includes demonstrations, couple's dialogue, lectures, experiential exercises, and written exercises. Techniques are demonstrated first, then couples practice these skills privately. These practice opportunities are extremely helpful because couples can immediately apply the skills when they return home.
The workshop addresses two sides of the relationship. One branch includes issues, problems and conflicts, and the other encompasses fun stuff: romance, caring behaviors, high and low energy fun, passion and your positive relationship vision.
There are opportunities for group sharing, but the workshop emphasizes partners sharing privately with one another. No self-disclosure is required; all work is done in private! Although couples come together in a group to hear these presentations, sharing is done only with your partner, as confidentiality is maintained throughout the workshop. These workshops are kept small to create a relaxed, secure, and fun environment.
You are thinking about marriage or remarrying and you really want to ensure this one will work.
You have a good relationship that needs to be revitalized.
You are having difficulty in your relationship and need tools and skills to better communicate and manage conflict.
You are near a breakup or divorce and want to decide if the relationship can be saved or not.
