Starting Dynamic Communication Workshop
We begin with a one-day workshop for couples that will make it easier for both of you to focus individually on how your own brain can block you from effective communication. You two will learn techniques to self soothe, stay present, and become empowered in your communication with your partner. We all want to be heard and in this workshop you will learn methods from the approaches of the Couples Institute “Coming From Your Heart” and the Gottman Institute “The Art and Science of Love” to enable you to make individual change that leads to safer and stronger connection with your partner.
Building Dynamic Relationships From Day 1 Workshop for Singles
Do you feel like most of what’s available out there for learning to communicate is only geared for those currently in a relationship? Are you missing the opportunity to learn how to better connect with others? This one-day workshop utilizes the same materials for the Starting Dynamic Communication Workshop, but will be focused on how to develop new skills that will help you in any new relationship. You will learn ways to express yourself more openly and honestly from the beginning of getting to know another person and be able to see if that other person is capable of meeting you in a more open trusting place.
Advanced Dynamic Communication Workshop for Couples
Our advanced workshops are a great way to continue building dynamism into your relationship.

In this two day workshop for couples we will again using methods from the Couples Institute and the Gottman Institute to learn how to develop skills that increase collaboration and stop painful interactions in their tracks.
