…And they have started to live happily ever after in peace and harmony…
All fairy tales end happily with marriage. But what happens after?
For some it is the end of love story, but for others it is just the beginning
of "the story of how great the love can be". How to build up a lifelong relationship?
This will be revealed by Dr.Gordon Neufeld at his author's two day Intensive.
Why do some marriages fall apart, become boring and joyless, but others grow stronger over the years?
Marital injuries: why do we hurt each other? How do we preserve or return a relationship in a couple.
When proximitypursuit transforms into the ambition to possess and when attachment turns against the spouse.
What holds us together when the ideal image of the partner breaks down into reality and everyday life? How to stand on one's own and keep relationship.
What is important in the relationship: hierarchy or equality? Do parents need to have the same opinions on parenting?
Who is more important: partner or child? The most common vulnerable feelings, which are exposed when children
are born.

This two day intensive is for

For couples: married, engaged and just living together. Happy and unhappy. Traditional and modern.
For all those who are seeking lifelong love and relationship.
The relationship is a spiritual intimacy. It is where one's deep inner need is safe and emotional attachment comes out. In order to build up a continuous close relationship,
we have to accept love and reciprocate it.
Sue Johnson
We will look at Love and Relationship from the point of view of the six-stage model of attachment, vulnerability and maturation.
WE WILL TALK about the development of relationships
and what psychological laws govern them.
How couples are formed. Sex and relationship.
WE WILL DISCUSS our instincts
Which instincts control us and what does keep us together? How do partners feel contact and closeness? How to be heard and seen?
WE WILL LEARN what is the secret of love
and lifelong relationship. How to keep separateness while being together: the personal development and marriage.
WE WILL DISCOVER how our flight from vulnerability affects the relationship
Life within marriage could be both the source of anxiety and the remedy to "cure" our feelings of insecurity. How are our neurosis and relationship connected? How to escape from the vicious circle of recrimination and misunderstanding.
WE WILL UNFOLD the essence of emotional drama
The drama that is at the root of problematic relationships. We will talk about how the different approaches that partners take in order to feel contact and proximity affect the relationship's dynamics.
WE WILL UNDERSTAND why and how the marriage, aggression and depression are related
Why could a marriage became the source of frustration and place to drain aggression? How do the marital violence and circle "bind /push away" arise? Why does depression come often to substitute aggression?
