The Seven Principles Workshop for couples is a two-day marriage workshop based on the internationally acclaimed research of Dr. John Gottman as presented in his New York Times bestselling book—The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work. This educational workshop has been offered across the US and internationally, and has strengthened the relationships of tens of thousands of couples. It's specifically designed to help couples improve their friendship and learn powerful communication and conflict management skills.

The workshop includes lectures, demonstrations, videos and private couples exercises. The activities are fun, insightful and informative. The presenters are hilarious. And there is no need to worry about sharing your personal problems in front of others... we don't do any group sharing at this workshop.

Friday evening is specifically created to be a Date Night. Beyond the workshop itself, we will be providing light refreshments will for you to enjoy while you participate in the training. There are also several awesome restaurants nearby where you can grab food before the workshop begins and during the lunch break on Saturday.
