The beautiful and historic Promisek at Three Rivers Farm in Bridgewater is the setting for this event, facilitated by Monica Kim Roberts and Liliana Doyon, both Connecticut Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, and featuring yoga by Aaron Warren, founder of Manipura Yoga.
Hold Me Tight® was developed by Dr. Susan Johnson, the developer of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). EFT has been heralded by Time Magazine and the New York Times as the couples therapy with the highest success rate: 75% of EFT couples report higher levels of emotional connection and relief from marital distress.
During the weekend, couples will break through their negative patterns to become more attuned and present with one another. Key concepts of adult love relationships are explained, and video clips of actual couples working through their own cycles are used as a model. Experiential processes take place between partners in order to maintain comfort and emotional safety. There will be breaks for private couple reflection and processing, and we encourage you to explore the lovely grounds and tranquil setting of Promisek. Any group processing is at the discretion and comfort level of the participants. Yoga is offered on both days and is encouraged as a way of integrating change by connecting to and invigorating our bodies.
