Life Together: Marriage

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

Through Life Together: Marriage Ministry is to awaken your relationship and discover your partner all over again. For Life Together, the key is to learn to recognize and accept your partner’s gifts with grace and gratitude We seek to help couples find the love, joy and passion possible in a conscious and spiritual relationship and learn the essential tools and principles that can keep love alive and growing. We believe in helping spouses develop a deeper connection with each other, with all beings and with Spirit take communication and listening skills to a new level as well as finding greater intimacy, co-creativity and spiritual growth. Joining this ministry offers an opportunity to rediscover the dimensions of your relationship and your common goals and learn to see your partner anew, discover their positives and appreciate their blessings. Our annual Marriage Retreat helps couples to recall their original vows and commitment, and make new agreements; learn to truly forgive and move beyond emotional gridlock; discover the importance that positive affirmations have on your partner; gain insights into what went wrong with previous relationships; and choose love over fear and develop a true spiritual connection and your partner.
