Gottman Couples' Retreats and Workshops



Two weeks ago we were getting a divorce and I literally begged my husband to not have that conversation with me until we came to the workshop as our last ditch effort. I don't think we'll be talking about divorce again…ever!

Our first night after Day 1, already ++ results! My spouse initiated sex for the first time in 4 years!! THANKS Drs Gottman!

There were things that I learned about my partner that were key for me to know…that I didn't know. I think this piece alone made it worthwhile. It was really well-planned and executed.

Very well done & very well organized. It's unusual for me not to have any constructive comments – you can be very proud of this two-day event.

Keep it up – we will be back each year – we will introduce our 3 adult children to the concepts.

Too much "salsa" last night made us both tired today!

Thank You. My marriage has been in major distress and we were ready to go our separate ways after 25 yrs – Thanks to the tools we learned this weekend, we plan to work together to make this marriage work and become stronger than ever.

We are attending this workshop 5 weeks after finding out about my husband's affair. After coming here, I feel like there is hope for us! We used to feel like really close friends and this "regrettable incident" has set us back a few steps, but I am feeling hopeful. I think we still have some $$ in the emotional bank.

The inclusion of the "life dreams" component was very powerful – something I have not encountered in this form in other experiences, including couples counseling. Thank You.
