Foundation: Communication and Boundaries

The Couples Alive series is for people in primary relationship who want more, and are prepared to go beyond the familiar to find it.

 

Couples Alive transformational learning for couples

 

The more we have 'at stake' in a relationship, the more challenging it can be to speak and listen. Unaddressed misunderstandings, unspoken wishes, and recurring struggle-points can become the breeding ground for 'score-keeping', distancing, and resentments.

 

A mutual pathway to connection is fundamental to identifying stumbling blocks and laying the groundwork for a dynamic, enduring primary relationship.

This program begins with an in-depth exploration of communication from a distinctly couples perspective. As well, a variety of breathing and body-awareness experiences help build a foundation for connection and growth. Each couple then applies their learnings to the 'boundary-ing' process - identifying and expressing wishes, wants and preferences - and exploring the impact and possibilities of this self-definition for their relationship.

 

This program is for couples that want to:

 

  • Deepen intimacy
  • Practice essential couples' communication skills
  • Bring greater understanding and clarity to daily conversations
  • Distinguish between boundaries and walls, and value both
  • Learn to identify and express preferences
  • Experience the impact of right/wrong and the possibilities of agree/disagree
  • Increase awareness and understanding of behaviours and defenses
  • Recognize and transform entrenched family rules and patterns

 

 

Please Note:
1. The Couples Alive programs have been specifically designed to be taken in order. We strongly recommend that you take the programs in sequence.
2. Couples Alive 1: Foundations is a prerequisite for all other parts of the series.

If you are a couple committed to a cohesive and rewarding relationship, I say with confidence that Couples Alive I will provide you with many tools you can use on your shared and individual paths in that direction.

 
Couples Alive Participant, Feb 2011


In the Couples Alive there were couples in different stages of relating: separated; together for forty years; relatively new; never at The Haven; graduates of The Haven's Diploma. The strength of the program was evident as all the diverse couples seemed to get lots from the program.

 
M.D., Couples Alive Participant, April 2011


When I heard that the program was being offered, I was very excited as this was what my partner/wife and I were looking for as a next step in our relationship. After taking the program, we are even more committed to our communication and more excited about taking the other programs in the series.

I really enjoyed the opportunity to focus on us as a couple. We've done a lot of individual work at The Haven, and there was a beautiful richness for me in getting to apply the learning directly to our relationship.

 
S.J., Couples Alive Participant, April 2011


Program was fantastic for me. The models and concepts were clearer when working with my partner than along. I would recommend this workshop to every couple, regardless of the stage of their relationship or length. I look forward to taking other programs in the series. Despite many bumps during this journey, I feel more positive about my relationship than ever. I feel closely connected with my partner. Yup, it's all do-able and be-able so I'm gonna get out there and be!

 
B. K., Couples Alive Participant, Feb 2011


I became much more aware of how much my 'stuff' affects my partner. No matter where you are in a primary or couple type relationship, this program offers some simple yet effective tools for the challenges and benefits of a close relationship. As always with every program I have participated in at The Haven, this one is not easy and I got a big 'bang' for my time and money.
