Mastering the Mysteries of Love

is a hands-on, activity-based course that teaches healthy marriage relationship enhancement skills for married and engaged couples.

These proven techniques help couples build skills such as showing understanding, discussion skills, expression skills, and much more. By the end of the course, couples will learn how to establish and maintain honesty, compassion, empathy, and trust in their relationship.


Generally speaking, our parents and their marriages are in crisis. The trauma of having lost their children contributes to these couples' reacting to each other with a high intensity of emotions. Because of the volatile nature of these interactions, we find that we usually need to make modifications to fit each couple's immediate needs. Mostly, our instructors model effective communication skills as they address these couples' most pressing issues.
