The workshop is a journey, and at the end you will leave with some insights into how you can create a deeply satisfying and long-lasting relationship with your partner, as well as having learned some skills that can help you to achieve that. Through exercises that you share with partner, you would explore some of your emotional history, and learn how that influences both the reason you chose your partner, and also the reason that you may both be drawn either now or later into a power-struggle.
“This weekend creates real hope for the future.” – Randy, Texas
This couples retreat is a valuable experience for every couple. All couples are welcome regardless of religious beliefs, marital status, and sexual orientation. If you have just met your partner, the workshop will help you make the most out of your life together. If you are struggling with relationship problems, the workshop can provide a quick way to reduce the pain and understand how to restore connection and love.
Tens of thousands of couples worldwide have attended the Imago Weekend Workshop for couples. It is called Getting The Love You Want because it is based on the best seller of that name by Harville Hendrix, Phd and his wife Helen LaKelly Hunt, who personally developed this workshop over a 16 year period, and has trained hundreds of Certified Workshop Presenters. And you can attend this workshop in Austin, Texas!
“Take your relationship to a place you have only dreamed of.” – Jennifer, Texas
During the workshop we teach you how to use the Imago Dialogue. This communication technique helps you explore the underlying emotional issues in your repeated conflicts and restore the connection between you. We will ask for volunteer couples that can be coached in front of the class through demonstrations, and then give you plenty of time to practice and apply the dialogue to the insights you develop throughout the workshop. There’s always help close by if you get stuck!
Sometimes we hear from couples who are concerned about revealing personal information to others. That’s why we set the workshop up so that if you wish you can do all your personal work privately with your partner, and just share with the group if you wish. We’ve also learned over the years that one of the most inspiring elements of the workshop is to see other couples going through the Imago processes during the demonstration and to hear their stories.
