Golden Relationships ~ Life the life of your dreams
This course is designed to increase the knowledge and skills that will help you enjoy a life long loving relationship.
The course name represents the Golden wedding anniversary because we believe this class can contribute greatly to the ability of couples to enjoy 50 or more years together. All are welcome in the course. It is not necessary to come as a couple or to be married. This class will help individuals prepare for great relationships or enjoy the one they already have.
The same skills and knowledge can help you improve all your relationships.
The class is a great wedding or anniversary gift.
If you are 'in love' you will know how to keep that loving feeling and if you do find yourself veering off course, you will have skills that can be used to get back on track before you're in a ditch.
If your relationship has evolved to where you feel more friendship than passionate loving feelings you can use the knowledge and skills to bring back the 'in love' feelings.
If the stress of life has made it feel more like your mate is your business partner, figuring out schedules and budgets, it can help you feel more 'in love' even in the midst of chaos.
If your relationship is struggling to survive the knowledge and skills may be able to bring it back to that loving feeling.
If your relationship has ended the knowledge and skills can help you make the next one the one you've been dreaming about.
Its goal is to increase happiness, optimism, emotional intelligence, resilience, self mastery, and well-being and improve relationships.
You will feel more empowered and feel more confident in your ability to sustain a loving relationship with your mate. Many of the same skills can be utilized to improve other relationships.
We design the time and location of this class to make it easy to have a date night after class so that couples attending together can enjoy one another and have time to talk about any insights they experienced as a result of the class.

The terms we use to refer to areas the class will benefit are defined differently by different people. This is especially true of happiness. Our meanings are reflected below.
Happiness is a deep sense of inner stability, well-being, peace and vitality that is consistent and reliable.
Resilience is an individual's ability to cope with stress and adversity. Increased resilience helps individuals recover from setbacks (illness, depression, adversity, etc.) faster than they would without the coping strategies that our course strengthens.
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to effectively understand oneself and others which impacts the ability to relate well to people and higher EQ levels help individuals be more successful in meeting the demands and pressures of life.
Optimism is an inclination to project a positive point of view upon actions and events and to anticipate favorable outcomes. Optimists tend to be much more successful than pessimists and to experience better health throughout life.
Self Mastery is the ability to be aware of your emotions and rule them rather than have them rule you. Self mastery is the ability to make the most out of your physical, mental, and spiritual health, to be the best you can be.
Well-Being ~ high levels of well-being mean that we are more able to respond to difficult circumstances, to innovate and constructively engage with other people and the world around us. As well as representing a highly effective way of bringing about good outcomes in many different areas our lives, there is also a strong case for regarding well-being as an ultimate goal of human endeavor. It contributes to the individual ability to realize his or her own potential, to cope with the normal stresses of life, to work productively and fruitfully, and the ability to make a contribution to her or his community.
