Character changes, beauty does not last, wealth and social status are not guaranteed for life.  So how do couples in a long-term relationship (including marriage) stay happy and committed to each other, and remain motivated to see each other through thick and thin?  Is love enough?  Does intelligence, wealth and beauty play an important part in a relationship?  

Research has shown that happily married couples are neither smarter, richer, more attractive nor more psychologically astute than other couples.  Instead, couples that stay happily married are those who have somehow hit a right dynamic that keeps negative thoughts about each other from overwhelming the positive thoughts.  Is it that simple? Yes, but getting the right dynamic requires, amongst other things, a right moral attitude, right effort and right understanding.  These qualities are skills that can be learned, practised and maintained throughout a relationship.  

This experiential workshop, which is based on dhamma concepts, will provide you and your partner with the right knowledge and tools to help both of you adapt to change, improve communication and understanding, in order to attain the right dynamic in your relationship, and cultivate joy, peace and contentment. This workshop is suitable for all couples – from married ones to those who have just started a relationship.
