Some comments from participants in Betsy and Bahar’s workshop:

“This was an amazing experience – incredible approach to strengthening a significant relationship. So glad I was able to attend with my fiancé. Gave us tools to use for a better life.”

“The workshop surpassed all my expectations. I was worried that bringing up feelings and issues might harm my relationship. But with the tools I learned to use, it felt very safe, and the conversations between my partner and me were well received on both sides and brought us closer together.”
