Wired for Love: Creating an Owner’s Manual for a Secure-Functioning Relationship

May 18 - 20, 2018 Begins in 3 weeks
with Stan Tatkin with Tracey Boldemann Tatkin

“People are complex,” says Stan Tatkin. “We don’t come with manuals that automate the process of getting along. Even if we did have general manuals, we aren’t robots; what works for one person won’t necessarily work for another. Nor does it work to fly blind, as many couples do, and expect relationships to simply fall into place.” This workshop for couples will demonstrate general principles to help you understand what makes a relationship successful, and how to work toward that with your partner.
