    As an engaged couple, Dave and I highly recommend this workshop as a way to deepen your connection and strengthen your relationship prior to getting married. During the Art and Science of Love course, we learned how to have productive discussion on hard to talk about topics, and how to have a more productive approach to conflict resolution. This interactive workshop armed us with the communication skills that will help us work through future disagreements by using Dr. Gottman's proven techniques. Additionally, this workshop showed us the importance of building a strong foundation of friendship by creating love maps, sharing fondness and admiration, and turning towards each other instead of away. We left the workshop having a better understanding for our emotional needs/wants and feeling more deeply connected. ... Read More

    I wanted to send you an email testimonial about our experience last weekend at The Art & Science of Love weekend workshop for couples in Greensboro. Who is attending the Summit?I am a therapist in private practice (LCSW, LCAS, and I also specialize in EMDR), and I am fortunate to have the opportunity to also work with a lot of couples in my practice. My initial purpose for attending this workshop was to learn more about the Gottman method from an experiential perspective, as I've read about it for years, and have implemented pieces of it in my work with couples, but was interested in knowing more. My loving husband works as a landscaper, and while he is very supportive, he doesn't really know a lot about these "therapy training's" that I go to, and he was a little nervous about what he was getting himself into by accompanying me to this one (...and maybe I had a slight ulterior motive by inviting him to come- ha ha ha!). The workshop was a lot of fun for both of us, and beneficial strengthening our relations ... Read More

    The film opening the workshops featuring Fred, the widowed songwriter, was moving and very touching. As I watched, the depth of feeling that Fred experienced for his wife awakened the very deep love that exists in me for (my partner) Elizabeth, a depth that is fundamental. The film opened that place in my heart that holds the most profound and sacred feeling and appreciation for my mate, and from the mood in the room after the film ended, it seemed that everyone was in touch with their love, too. All of the exercises that we completed were quite valuable in that they gave us very practical, real life tools to strengthen and enhance our relationship. I did not experience anything that was difficult. In some form, we were already doing much of what Dr. Gottman suggested for building friendship and for making relationships work. The exercise on Managing Conflict was especially valuable. We were able to use this exercise to get in touch with, and to express to one another, family of origin ... Read More
