What Participants From Past Courses Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our past couples do the talking!

“When I started this course my husband and I were living in separate parts of the house and preparing for divorce. We had tried other counseling with no positive results. My husband had no interest to participate and I was hesitant to work through the course alone but I thought that would be better than doing nothing. At the end of the eight week course, my husband and I are sleeping together again and working through our issues. We are discussing conflict more openly. I started this course hoping I could fix my husband but instead I have learned so much about my child-like behaviors that were damaging my marriage. I feel I now have tools to continue to learn to be the person I want to be in my marriage. “

“This class has been like a pressure relief valve – so far – in our marriage – taking a step back, understanding the blame game, etc. takes some of the anger away. Counseling was not working for us at all – getting that third person out of the mix didn’t hurt either. “

“For me, the final lesson pretty much summed up all that was/is going wrong with myself, my marriage and my life. Wow. I suddenly see very clearly where I’m taking the wrong turns. My whole life – my ideas for writing and business, my marriage, my sex life – had pretty much turned into “masturbation” – watching, doing things only in my mind, for myself, not “showing” anything to the world, avoiding rejection and risk. “Penetrating the world” is a very powerful image for me and my way forward. Thanks. “
