Mad Love: A course for committed relationships.

Where:  Monterey Centre

When:   Tuesday Nights, October, 2019

How to Register:  Registration Begins in August

This is a course for couples (of any kind) who are committed to growth within their relationship.  Intimate relationships have the potential to facilitate personal growth in a way that allows us to explore our monkey business.   It will shine a light on typical relationship patterns that get couples into trouble.  The combination of the LIFE material and research from leaders in the field,  provides a wide range of insights to apply to our everyday lives.

Of course no couple’s course is complete without communication skill building.  Yet, communication goes beyond skills because how you speak represents who you are.  Knowing this means that you can use language as a vehicle for growth.  Participants will work within their couple relationship while Allison  presents to the group as a whole.

Six classes: Tuesday nights from 7:00 to 9:00 February 5th to March 12th

Couple seat only:  $245  per couple so $122.50 per seat  includes online manual
