You’re deeply committed to your relationship

You’d love to meet and learn from other couples building great relationships

Week One: Introducing the Power of Play

What’s being in relationship really all about?

Are you willing to toss out the myth of hard work?

Savouring the WD40 of Relationships

How balloons, hackey-sacks, finger puppets and other dollar store items can serve you well

“Connection is why we are here, it’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives.”
- Brene Brown
Week Two: Moving From Drama to Delight

Everything’s great … and then something happens

What’s your particular Triangle dance look like?

Reliably shifting from drama to delight

Expanding your capacity for love and pleasure

“A power struggle collapses when you withdraw our energy from it. Power struggles become uninteresting to you when you change your intention from winning to learning about yourself.”
~ Gary Zukav
Week Three: Retiring From the Blame Game

Knocking off the single biggest relationship killer

What you’re requiring in your relationship and how to stop ordering it up

How taking 100% responsibility liberates time, energy and relationships

Barriers to asking for what you want and how to collapse them

“The long-term possibilities of any relationship are limited by or expanded by what the partners are being accountable for.”
~ Alison Armstrong
Week Four: Playing with Polarities

How our differences attract and repel us

Playing with the Splitter/Glommer continuum

Taking a walk in your partner’s shoes

Individuality and connection in relationship

“You like potato and I like potahto. You like tomato and I like tomahto. Potato, potahto, tomato, tomahto – let’s call the whole thing off!”
~ George and Ira Gershwein

Week Five: Igniting a Deeper Fire

How to open to the wisdom that your body contains

Sex – it’s never about the quantity, quality or position!

Awakening your senses

Opening to your sexual and creative flow

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”
- Oprah Winfrey

Week Six: Maximum Wow!

Now what’s possible?

Your relationship as a conduit for purpose

Creating Rockin’ Beginnings

Your new relationship commitments

“Nothing guarantees a long and happy marriage except two people willing to throw themselves, headlong, into the uncertainty, the inevitable pain and disappointment, the absolutely guaranteed failures and essential bravery, of intimacy. It does take two – and that’s a shame, because so may no-too-bad marriages have one person who is willing to make that leap and one who is, at heart, not – but if you have two people who are willing to make themselves better, more vulnerable, more honest than they were the year before, you, you lucky few, you have a shot at the long and happy.”
- Amy Bloom

“Successful relationships are built upon the foundation of bringing committed love to the table every day, communicating your feelings, receiving your partner’s feelings and setting healthy boundaries to maintain a sense of independence within the relationship. This allows for love to be given and received, proper adjustments to be made if the line of communication gets fuzzy and still gives each of you the freedom to be yourself and bring forth your unique creative expression.

This combination will manifest the strongest and healthiest relationships in your life.

And remember, the purpose of relationships is to be happy, to learn and to CO-create a life together.”
- Jackson Kiddard
