"George Taylor's clear step-by-step guide book is both wise and full of heart."
             — James Baraz, Spirit Rock Meditation Center teacher.

Most couples envision sharing a life of love and joy with each other. They look forward to deeper intimacy and inner discovery.  Then somewhere along the way, they feel as though they are bushwhacking through a thicket of life’s issues. 

They ask, “Is there a map or trail that will guide us on our journey?”  

This workshop offers a time-tested Path for Couples that leads partners towards the treasures that are hidden in their hearts.  They will discover that a joyful, awakened connection is possible.

Couples will:    

  • Practice Intimacy Skills
  • Learn How To Communicate Authentically
  • Learn How Power Struggles Can Become Gateways
  • To Growth And Deeper Connection
  • Learn How To Collaborate And Have More Fun

Powerful experiential exercises and guided partner meditations will give couples tools and inspiration to choose communication patterns that open hearts and awaken consciousness.

Participants will learn specific practices which will reignite the spark of an alive and growing love., and which can be done on an ongoing way at home. 

These practices are contained in George’s new book, “A Path for Couples: Ten Practices to Transform Your Relationship,” which will be available at the workshop. Join us for this exciting celebration of the publication of the book, which is a repository of the wisdom and experience of George’s and Debra’s 35 year marriage, and his 25 years as a couples counselor.

We teach couples, in small groups, how to do the ten key practices that are featured in the workbook, "A Path for Couples."

The class becomes a learning community, in which couples teach each other how the practices can change their communication habits and lead to transformation and intimacy.

Over the course of the class, couples see how other people wrestle with real-life problems, with relationship conflicts, with child-rearing issues, with career changes,  etc., within the model of relationship as a transformational process.

They see how deeper communication is the foundation to better solutions to problems, and to more intimacy and health.
