Couples Workshop

A Couples Workshop with Ann & Charlie Bowman

Saturday, October 28, 2017

9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Sincere and durable intimacy is one of life’s greatest riches. It is a treasure we create together by focusing our attention on being together in the present – here and now.  In our work we offer an opportunity to enter deeply into this experience of being present with each other. This enables us to connect in a way that opens our hearts to form a more lasting, compassionate connection.  This is how love and relationships grow.
The workshop environment is extremely safe and it is ample enough to hold your strengths, your vulnerabilities, your courage, your fears, your faith, and your doubts.  Our aim is to help you bring your relationship to a new level of awareness – full of authenticity, intimacy, and fulfillment.  We will share with you the heart of what we have learned from being a couple for over 30 years and couple therapists the majority of that time. We will use humor, music, movement, talk, experiential exercises and group sharing.
