RELATIONSHIP WORKSHOPS: Why relationship workshops for couples? At HeartLight Wellness we know that relationships have a powerful impact on our emotional, physical and mental well-being and overall wellness.

Couples workshops allow couples planning a marriage/partnership, transitioning into mid-life, or others to dialogue about how to strengthen relationships.

We know that wisdom comes from all 'slices' of life, and we welcome couples and partners from all lifestyles, lesbian, gay, straight, young, middle aged or senior relationships to share their experience with others.

  1. Identify your relationship's strengths and challenges and build on them
  2. Create an Emotional Bank Account that you can draw on in times of stress
  3. Use our simple "A-A-A" method to strengthen your partnership every day
