Love Programs/Workshops For Men

For many men, experiencing love means letting go of a more self-contained way of being in the world. Even if we are naturally more sensitive and driven to connect, falling in love and expanding our relationship boundaries can trigger fear, jealousy, and defensiveness. It is not simply a matter of learning to feel more deeply and to be more vulnerable; love also calls us to think in a new and more expanded way about the world and our priorities in it. It is at the heart of a considered and well-lived life. When we are willing to engage love and challenge ourselves, love can encourage us to grow more clear and purposeful in our lives as well as be more passionate, connected, and gentle with our significant other.

Deepening Love In the Midst of Challenge


It is often in our romantic relationships that we place our highest hopes and expectations for loving connection and personal fulfillment. This workshop is for couples who are committed to growing together and connecting more deeply with one another, but who may be experiencing a specific challenge or long-standing obstacle that they want to overcome. The workshop will present each couple with ways in which each person can grow individually and within the relationship. Couples will be taken through guided exercises focusing on the core dimensions of intimate relationships: communication, intimacy, love, sexuality, power, expression of physical and emotional affection, healthy conflict resolution and shared spirituality.  Led by Life Design Centre therapists Thuy Bui, LCSW, CSAT and Mark D. Forman, Ph.D., couples who attend will leave with tools to inspire renewed hope, enthusiasm, transformation and purpose in their partnership. Throughout the workshop respect and attention will be given to both the masculine and feminine perspectives.
