Transformation Classes – Meaningful Results
  Your relationship skills can either invite harmony or confusion, nasty feeling, arguing and fighting for control.

By changing your perspective and forming skills that invite harmony, you will slowly come to live in a fulfilling relationship and family. 

Taught in one-month segments, our Relationship Transformation classes teach the skills you need. We learn a skill in an all day class once a month. We then practice the month’s new skill into habit in weekly practice groups.  

The good news is that it only takes one person to transform the entire nature of a relationship. By understanding empathetically, creating connection and persistently inviting peace, one person can change the outcome of any interchange.

Relationship Transformation: training in Peace-Making and marital skills that infuses empathy, healing and mutual support into relationships.

Peace: the state that occurs when we remain within our compassionate nature, tending and fulfilling essential human needs; the tranquility and joy from a thriving life.

Peace-Making: the skills that focus on deepening insight, practicing love and creating a willing environment for mutually supportive decisions.
