A Weekend Workshop for Couples
A very special and private Art & Science of Love Couples Workshop limited to six couples held in a peaceful retreat style setting in the WindanSea Beach area of scenic La Jolla, California. The brand new Art and Science of Love Couples toolboxes will be available for the first time; this includes a workbook, interesting and playful card decks and more.
All three days of the retreat include lectures, science-based information, videos and role plays by Trish and a colleague from the Center for Couples Therapy, discussion about the content, and exercises that you will do only with your partner. When hearing information, we will be seated together in a comfortable living area. When it comes time to do exercises, you may move to special outdoor spots on the patios or garden areas, one of which has an ocean view. You will not be pressured to disclose anything publicly. Because of the small size of the group, there will be more one-on-one support time with Trish Stanley.
For added comfort and processing time, we have scheduled the September 15-17, 2017 workshop in three parts: Friday evening from 6:30 to 9:30 (Check-in is at 6:00 pm.), Saturday from 8:30 to 5:00, and Sunday morning from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.
