Maintaining a Healthy Marriage

I have been asked to speak this week on "Creating Safety and Security in the Marriage"  at First Presbyterian Church. First Pres of Berkeley hosts an annual Winter Workshop Series on "Maintaining a Healthy Marriage". I've been a speaker for their marriage workshops for many years now.  I will be talking about the difference between autonomy and mutuality and how these two ways of behaving will make or break your sense of safety and security in the relationship. I will also guide you in creating a Couple Bubble to protect your relationship. This is free!!!

Parking: is free. Mention that you are coming to the Maitaining a Healthy Marriage Class. Come early so you can have enough time to find parking. After finding a parking space, take the elevator up to the second floor. You will see a sign when you come out of the elevator. Take a right, go all the way to the end of the hallway and you will find the class.
