We are Merry Stanford and Peter Wood, of Red Cedar Friends Meeting in Lansing, Michigan, and have been leading Couple Enrichment events since 1995. Peter is a psychotherapist in full-time private practice, working with individuals and couples. Merry is a psychotherapist, spiritual director, and energy medicine practitioner. We have been married for 29 years, following previously failed marriages. We credit the Couple Enrichment dialogue process with helping us grow a healthy relationship through difficult as well as joyful times, while also growing individually. We have used the principles of Couple Enrichment to raise two children, now grown, and to help faith communities speak together about sensitive and divisive issues.
Friends Couple Enrichment:
CHANGED TO ZOOM FORMAT!
9 AM TO 4 PM ~ SATURDAY, MARCH 21, 2020
There are few things more fulfilling in life than being deeply understood by the one who loves you, and deeply understanding the one you love. The Couple Enrichment Dialogue, in which we listen tenderly and speak authentically, is a spiritual practice that helps us gain this kind of deep understanding. If you would like to learn how to use the Couple Enrichment Dialogue to give and receive the gift of understanding with your beloved, and to introduce this spiritual practice to your partnership, please join us for this residential retreat. It will be a special time!
We begin 9 am sharp via Zoom on Saturday, March 21, will have an hour lunch period from 12 pm to 1 pm, and a couple of stretch breaks. We will end by 4 pm.
