Couples who appreciate the power of community may share their journey and deepen their relationships in a dynamic workshop series, “Bring the Spark Back into Your Relationship,” beginning this month in Asheville.
Participants can expect improved communication, a deeper sense of connection, the release of old hurts, the re-establishment of trust, and the emergence of new, healthier patterns, according to program facilitators Guy Morganstein and Carol Greenberger, licensed professional counselors serving Asheville and Western North Carolina.
“The power of the couples’ group is in the sharing of your journey with other couples and in giving and receiving support,” says Morganstein. “We all have strengths to share.”
Providing a framework for the group will be readings and exercises in John Gottman and Nan Silver’s book, The Seven Principles of Making Marriage Work. Using the book will give others the same opportunity to grow and expand in their existing relationships, Morganstein believes, but with the support they need to establish and maintain the rebirth of interest and intimacy.
To ensure the fullest experience possible, each participating couple will have one or two private sessions with either Morganstein or Greenberger. Then, each couple will be offered an opportunity for further work suiting their individual situations.
Those who proceed to the group pay an affordable $20 per person. The work is covered by most insurance; those accepted by the facilitators include Medicaid, BCBS, Tricare, and others.
