Dr. Harville Hendrix, PhD

It teaches committed partners to become mutual resources for healing childhood and relational wounds, giving them hope to restore passion and spiritual potential.

When we meet the person of our dreams, a magical transformation takes place within us. Then, before we know it, that magical connection can disappear. Where did it go? Can we get it back? If so, how? EarthRise Retreat Center offers an in depth opportunity to learn from Harville Hendrix, the man Oprah Winfrey refers to as "the marriage whisperer." Hendrix, co-creator of Imago Relationship Therapy, has spent the last 30 years helping couples learn how to recapture that magical connection and strengthen and sustain it as a conscious relationship.

In this workshop, Getting the Love You Want, Hendrix incorporates lectures, videos, demonstrations and practice to guide partners to deeper levels of connection and wholeness using Imago, a transformational approach that integrates leading psychological theories and practical observations on the experience of love. It teaches committed partners to become mutual resources for healing childhood and relational wounds, giving them hope to restore passion and spiritual potential. The workshop is open to couples of all orientations, lengths of commitment, and stages of life. It runs from 5 p.m. December 9 to 1:30 p.m. December 11, 2011.

The weekend workshop fee, which includes meals, is $435 until November 10, and $465 thereafter. Onsite lodging is $72 per person per night for a shared room or $97 per night for a single room.

Continuing education credits are available for marriage family therapists, social workers, healthcare workers and psychologists.
