When we meet the person of our dreams, a magical transformation takes place within us. Then, before we know it, that magical connection disappears. Where did it go? Can we get it back? If so, how?

Harville Hendrix has spent the last 30 years helping couples learn how to recapture that magical connection and strengthen and sustain it as a conscious relationship. Co-creator of Imago Relationship Therapy, and known internationally, he has helped thousands of couples experience the profound connection that happens when committed partners mutually become resources for healing each others childhood and relational wounds. During the weekend, using lectures, videos, demonstrations and practice, you will learn a process that transforms your relationship from conflict to connection. You will also be assisted in developing the innate spiritual potential of your relationship and experience how the connection that heals your personal relationship also connects you to the transcendent.

Couples new and old, in crisis or in love, married or unmarried, are invited to join this workshop; it is open to all couples interested in understanding and deepening their intimate partnership. As they work on their own relationships, helping professionals gain information that they can also use with clients.

Learning Objectives
