Saturday Nov 25 – 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Sunday Nov 26 – 2 to 5 pm
Have you been searching for a way to enrich your relationship, reconnect, or just have some quality time together? Join acclaimed facilitator Brian Mitchell-Walker for a fun-filled weekend. Learn how to be in the moment with your partner–to speak your truth, and listen without the reactions that come from past hurts or future worries. All couples are welcome, straight or queer (lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirit, transgender . . .). We will provide a safe, inclusive space, delicious snacks and lunch on Saturday, and childcare upon request.
The investment for the weekend is $125 / couple. With the generous sponsorship of Affirm United, we have planned the best quality experience for an accessible price. If cost is a barrier or if you would like to sponsor a couple to attend, please contact tessera at email@example.com or 306-653-2402.
The weekend materials and activities are not faith-based and individuals of all faiths or none are warmly welcomed to attend.
Registration deadline: November 10
