Marriage Boost

For a fulfilled marriage (new: Weekend format)

Regardless of whether you are newly married or have been traveling together for many years, whether you are strained or intimate and joyful - investing in marriage is worthwhile. The aim of this program is to analyze the constellation of your marriage, to reflect on communication, conflict management and dealing with each other, to discover hidden treasures and to work out your differences and similarities - for a new, fulfilled togetherness. With a maximum of 8 married couples, we work on marriage-specific topics - including communication, emotionality, tenderness and more - openly and honestly. A night meeting 5 months after the course should motivate you to stick with it sustainably.
