ART AND SCIENCE OF LOVE WORKSHOP, COLORADO SPRINGS, 2016

“We now have the necessary tools we need when we face conflict. We are so grateful to have attended this conference! Thank you a million times over!”

“Loved it! Thank you!”

“A ton of great information and tools to use for the future!”

“We discovered that our gridlock was rooted in a totally solvable issue, but was not visible to either of until that exercise.”

“I learned that breaking down a problem provides a thorough evaluation and greater likelihood of resolution.”

“These guys are amazing! They really hit home with a lot of things we struggle with and presented in a way that was clear and helpful!”

“My husband and I learned so much from this weekend! We feel so much closer to each other. I learned that I was doing some major things wrong in our marriage. I can’t wait for the opportunity to use new skills and correct my own mistakes!”

“Your method and the tools you suggest are very accessible and tangible (actionable). It does seem simple and straightforward. Although not everything will be easy to implement, it felt empowering, like, ‘yes, we can do this!'”

“It gave us a base and model to work from. This is really helpful for people who didn’t have great examples in their past.”

“Liked having clear theoretical background & framework based on the research. Loved the exercise and clarity of how to complete them.”

“Super important for us to finally be addressing something we’ve avoided and been stuck on for a long time.”

“I really like the portion about listening 90% and talking 10%. Also, the sex conversation was great as well.”

“We arrived in a tough place together, and through the first day were able to re-gain a sense of friendship and closeness.”

“We were not that close coming in here, but we are now.”

“I am excited to use the tools & principles presented during the workshop.”

“Very nice having the whole weekend with my spouse to talk about us. We don’t get that chance at home. I loved being guided through all the conversations.”

“Even though we were friends coming in here, the first day has drawn us closer.”

“Feeling my partner’s pain and difficulty during the stress exercise allowed me to be in total empathy. Leaning into each other throughout the exercises has heightened an already strong love.”

“I liked “breaking off” to apply what we learn and talk on our own.”

“Feeling my partner’s pain and difficulty during the stress exercise allowed me to be in total empathy. Leaning into each other throughout the exercises has heightened an already strong love.”
