Last month more than 100 couples came together to experience the USM Couples Workshop—with spectacular heart-opening results!
Couples traveled all the way from Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, New York, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Washington, D.C., in the United States, and Bermuda, Mexico, Moldova, and Ontario!
They practiced the skills and tools of Spiritual Psychology with one another. They saw, identified, owned, and transformed their projections, judgments, and limiting beliefs. While doing so, they enjoyed, loved, and appreciated their partners. And they experienced sharing Unconditional Loving with each other.
Many Participants gave feedback that the Couples Workshop was a profoundly Loving and relationship-renewing experience.
Here is what a few of them had to share:
“My boyfriend and I attended the Couples Workshop and had an amazing experience. We have implemented a lot of the skills that we learned from the weekend into our relationship. I had always been a little apprehensive about sharing my emotions, so we decided together during the weekend that it would be good to share the high and low points of our day to share our feelings more consistently. We also implemented the appreciations that Ron and Mary suggested and set our intentions for the following day. Every night before we go to bed, we share our daily “highs and lows,” two rounds of appreciations, and intentions for the next day. Through this process, it has helped the communication in our relationship immensely. We had such a great time and would highly recommend it to anyone.”

“The Couples Workshop was transformational for us. Learning the subtleties of TRULY listening and TRULY being there for the other, enabled us both to feel so much more loved and committed to each other.
“It was both super practical, yet also beyond this world … as we were really able to tap into the much larger and greater reality of why we feel our Souls have come together at this time—to truly support and inspire each other into living our Soul’s highest expression.”
—Zoe Golightly (USM ’13)
“My husband and I met while we were at USM and got married last year. We already have an amazing relationship because of the common language we have through our education. We went to the Couples Workshop to deepen in our love and make our relationship even more wonderful. Our experience at the Workshop really takes our relationship to the next level. We decided how to build time for intimacy in our lives and started to make time for sharing what we appreciate about each other daily and pray together in the morning.
“Life gets busy and if we don’t take the time to slow down and look at what we are creating as a couple, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. I can see how people easily start to lose the vibrancy of their relationship without integrating some habits that create intimacy.
“We also have been setting intentions as to what we want to create and experience together. I am clear that I want to grow with my husband and partner with him, not only in love, but in all areas of our lives including careers. The Couples Workshop allowed us to build that solid foundation to support us through the many changes that will continue to happen in our lives.”
