Barbara & Peter

"Getting the Love You Want" is a 20-hour weekend workshop for couples seeking to reclaim the joy and purpose of being together while using their relationship for personal change and growth.

Imago theory focuses on the belief that our own fears and learned patterns of behavior prevent us from getting the love we desire.  The workshop offers couples the tools to identify and remove obstacles that stand in the way of a more fulfilling partnership.

Who should consider a couples workshop?

Married and unmarried couples of any age who:

Are beginning a relationship they want to keep
Want to enrich a good relationship
Are in a difficult relationship with long-standing conflicts
Are near break-up or divorce and want to know if the relationship can be saved


"Everything that irritates us about others can lead to an understanding of ourselves." -Carl Jung

What you will learn:
Why the very qualities that attracted you to each other now drive you crazy
New communication tools that break destructive cycles
How to be less reactive to each other and more intentional
How to turn daily frustrations into opportunities for growth
New ideas for re-romanticizing your relationship
How to use your partnership for mutual healing and growth
How to rediscover the joy and spiritual potential of your relationship

The workshop  was developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D.,  founder of the Institute for Imago Relationship Therapy.  Studies show that this workshop can have the same results as three to six months of couples therapy.

The workshop is planned to help you design and build the relationship you desire.  The weekend includes brief lectures, written exercises, guided imagery, demonstrations of specific communication skills and opportunities to practice what you are learning.  Partners share personal experiences only with each other and confidentiality is maintained in a safe and comfortable environment.

Space is limited.  Early registration is encouraged.  The fee for the 20-hour workshop is $695 per couple; this includes tuition, two workbooks, and refreshments.  The registration fee must be paid in full two weeks prior to the workshop. A deposit of $300 will reserve a place for you.  Previous workshop attendees may attend for $400.

It was the most healing experience in our 30-year marriage -- Psychiatric nurse

When you find yourself wanting to be better in your relationship, but don't know how, this is the way to go.
-- 45-year-old businessman and newlywed

This has been a life-changing experience for me. -- University of Chicago graduate student

It was humbling to find out how much I didn't know about relationships, but exhilarating to learn new techniques my wife and I will continue to use. -- University professor

This workshop gave us insight into how we push each other's buttons and valuable tools to climb out of the power struggle we've been in for the past six years. -- Couple with 3 children, married 10 years

I will hardily recommend this program to my parishioners. -- Minister

I arrive a skeptic ... never believe in going to anyone else for help.  When my wife threatened divorce if we didn't go to counseling or a workshop, I chose the workshop.  I figured I could get it over in a weekend.  By the end of the first day, I had to admit, the material was interesting; I was learning things I didn't know.  By the end of the weekend I was ready to recommend this workshop  to my friends. -- Construction company owner, married 23 years
