Through Conflict to Connection
Even the healthiest relationships experience conflict.This is an educational relationship workshop that provides insight and facilitates understanding by exploring conflict in relationship.
Conflict offers the opportunity to grow up and face life's contradictions, ambiguities, to repair and grow larger in the process. Conflict in the relationship can serve as a “wake-up call” for a couple -- a signal that “there is pain here, and we need to address it.”
This is a relationship skills program; it is not therapy but it is therapeutic. Participants may gain new insights into their relationship and relationships in general and into the healing opportunities hidden within conflict.
Over the Bridge Weekend Couples Retreats are held throughout the year at selected luxury locations. These weekends offer a deeply transformational experience for couples looking to improve their communication skills, resolve conflict, and deepen their emotional connection. These include the cost of the workshop, two nights of private, luxury accommodations, and all chef-prepared meals.
