(Unsolicited) REVIEWS FROM COURSE PARTICIPANTS:

"I've been meaning to write and thank you for both of your classes.  ... I can honestly say that your classes have invigorated and reinvented our marriage.   Both of us have been happier than we've been in years --- probably the happiest we've ever been.  Our daughter said to me recently that she noticed that my husband and I have been so much more positive and happy.  I cannot tell you how wonderful this all is!  Just know that you are doing really good, important, lasting work!  Thank you so much!  --- S.D., class participant.

 

"Thanks for everything. This course has had the most impact for good on my marriage than anything else we've ever done. Thank you incredibly much! I only wish I had access to this [30+] years ago, when we married. Oh well. Better late than never! ... I genuinely appreciate your work. You're a blessing to the world."   ---M.P.  --Class Participant.

 

"Thank you for teaching this class.  We had a wonderful experience with both the "Strengthening Your Relationship" and the "Enhancing Sexuality" courses.  I found the assignments particularly helpful.  Going through them allowed me to process what I learned in the classes and apply it to myself.  Doing that helped me identify a lot of things I need to confront to improve my relationship to my own sexuality and my sexual connection with my husband.  I feel like I'm leaving the course with tools in my tool box to deal with my avoidance of sex, a problem I now see more clearly."  ---S.R., class participant

 

"[My husband] and I have been doing the exercises from your class and found them really helpful.  ….  The first time we tried [one of the exercises], I was overwhelmed with a feeling of being cared for----really cared for. ... It was a gift that I gave to myself as much as [my husband] gave to me as I let myself receive.  The next day, I was full of energy and excitement and found myself really looking forward to our next session that night.  After we did it for the second night, we had the best sex we have ever had.  It is hard to describe, but it really was a beautiful conversation, like you had said it could be.  I felt like we were expressing respect for the best in each other and also freely receiving the message.  Without "trying" to, we gazed in each others eyes the whole time and shared a really spiritual experience. ..."   --- C.M., class participant.
