Our most popular teaching format is our workshops. In addition to teaching, workshops include activities and homework for the couple.

Passionate Intimacy is a weekend workshop (Friday evening through Saturday morning). This workshop is designed to help married couples on the journey toward discovering passionate physical intimacy. Couples explore how sexual intimacy is a God given gift that can be a vehicle for taking a marriage relationship to a whole new level of intimacy. This is a highly rated workshop that typically takes place overnight at a hotel. more information...

The Nurturing Intimate Marriages Workshop is our most popular workshop. It consists of 8 hours of workshop type teaching. Couples learn information and skills and are given time to practice them before building on them. This workshop works great as a weekend retreat but can be adapted to a variety of formats.
