Workshop Information

Sunday, February 27, 2022

2-5pm ET | 1-4pm CT | 12-3pm MT | 11-2pm PT

This 3-hour mini-workshop includes multiple mini-learning-sessions, designed to systematically introduce you to the key elements of effective couples communication along with opportunities to begin practicing (privately, on mute, during the workshop) the skills being taught.

Each mini-section of the workshop will include brief Q&A sessions to address questions that arise as you put your new skills to work.

Digital downloads with course content and practice exercises will be provided by email prior to the workshop.

This workshop is not therapy and does not constitute a therapeutic relationship. This is a one-time, skill-building coaching workshop on how to communicate better for lesbian couples.

YOU WILL LEARN:

  • A Fail-Proof Roadmap for Effective Communication
  • How to speak with more honesty and openness
  • The Principles of Wholehearted Communication
  • How to Be Heard (becoming hearable)
  • How to Hear Her Feelings, Not her Words
  • How to disagree without fighting
  • The Fundamentals of Listening
  • Strategies to Improve Your Understanding of Each Other
  • The Transformative Power of Empathetic Validation
  • Barriers to Communication and How to Overcome Them

Will We Have to Talk in Front of Other Couples?

No. All exercises are designed to be done individually or with your partner while on mute. After each principle of Wholehearted Communication is introduced, couples will be asked to put themselves on mute and engage in the related exercise. Then, couples will be asked to rejoin the session for a quick Q&A session. We will repeat this process for each layer of the Wholehearted Communication process.

Can we join the class late or leave early?

Yes. The URL for the workshop will allow you to join the call, leave the call and rejoin the call if necessary. Ideally, you will join when we start and stay until the end. However, not all schedules line up quite so perfectly, so we flex with life as we need to.

Can I access this course with a smart phone?

Yes. You can access zoom.us via a smartphone, ipad, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer. You will need access to the internet and you will also need to download the zoom app on the divide you plan to use to access class. Go to: zoom.us/download and download this on your device. At the time of the workshop, simply enter. the workshop URL in your search bar. This will take you to the live digital classroom.

Can I attend without my spouse?

Yes, if you are representing one partner of a couple, you can join the event. The limited number of spots are reserved to benefit couples. However, sometimes there are schedule conflicts, and other times partners have different learning styles, interests, and comfort. If you are in a lesbian/non-binary relationship and you wish to join without your partner, please do. Don’t be surprised if she gets curious and decides to join you. 🙂

It was a really great experience and I’m glad my wife and I signed up. Michelle was great at making things “click”. I learned a lot about myself as well as why there is a breakdown in communication.the turtle and bee

ABOUT MICHELE

Since 2005, I have helped 500+ lesbian couples heal and grow their relationships. Many of them still check in from time to time for a check-up to be sure to stay on track.

After reading the book Getting the Love You Want by Harville Hendricks, author of the Imago Theory of relationships, I knew what I wanted to do when I grew up. I was going to help lesbians grow healthy, happy relationships. And that is what I have been doing ever since.

I’m insatiably curious about love and relationships. I never tire of learning.

In 2010, I returned to school to get my Ph.D. in Clinical Sexology in search of a better understanding of lesbian bed death.
