Here’s the scoop:You & Me – A Workshop for Coupled Gay Men
In this weekend workshop, we will explore who we are as individual gay men, who we are in relationship and our identities as couples. By becoming aware of our hopes, yearnings and passions, as well as our stuck places, fears, and conflicts we can realize greater flexibility to create the kind of relationships we would like with ourselves and our partners.
Through experiential individual, relationship and group process work, we will revisit what first brought us together as couples, further develop awareness of what informs the roles we take on in relationships, begin to create new frameworks for healthy conflict, and strengthen our connections with our partners.
