Emotional Connection in Marriage

Home/Emotional Connection in Marriage

The Escape Plan

Ever close your eyes and imagine another marriage, free of annoyance and aggravations….and maybe even one where you feel truly seen?

Are you looking to boost your healthy relationship or revitalize an old, tired one?

Inject some love serum into one gone astray?

Human beings seek open, responsive, secure and safe connections through our marriage partners. Being in-sync with your partner feels empowering – like someone is unconditionally loving, respecting and cheering you on through all of life’s trials and tribulations. Without that cohesive, unconditional, nurturing person, you struggle.

One simple action calms the chaos of marital disconnection

It isn’t rocket science, and it’s way easier than you think.  Deepen your connection with your partner as you learn about what it means to be attuned, attached and interdependent with your partner. The interpersonal space between you will be examined*.

*Don’t worry…the workshop is so short, we won’t have time to put you on the spot or dig into the deep, dark corners of your marriage. But, you will learn this one simple action plus how dependence upon another person is actually okay (contrary to other popular beliefs about marriage). 

Interdependence is not an ugly word; in fact, it is the recipe for strong love and connection with one another. Join us for this FREE workshop and get the ingredients you need to rediscover your connection with each other.
