Where do we learn how to be a couple?
Who teaches us to navigate conflict, to get through hurt, anger, raising children, sexuality issues, the aging process?? Who teaches us to be open hearted, to be real, to risk loving deeply, to fly together?
Couples generally make the choice to seek help for their relationship when they are undergoing some sort of crisis or transition. For many this is a very tough decision. Some crises are tangible, such as when couples find themselves continually fighting, affairs, internet sex, or the impact of addicted behaviors, depression etc. Other crises are less transparent. These are the couples whose relationships have lost their spark or are stuck in the mundane routine of life. They come to work out what’s causing the relationship to feel so unsatisfying.
Other couples however, show up in our office, with none of the above. They come for support and tools from mentors who have “walked the walk.” They want to open up, be more real, confide in one another, have more pleasure, deepen their sexual intimacy, and to mutually discover the higher purpose of their relationship.
What we hear all the time from the couples we work with is: Why didn’t we do this sooner??
Private Mentoring with Brian and Marcia
Two-on-two sessions to assist couples in transforming the patterns that impede their deepest connection. We invite couples into a profound exploration of their emotional truths, shadow selves, needs, greatness and sexuality. Over the past three decades of working together, we have worked with many diverse situations. Our sessions range from 1 hour to 3 hours. We also work with couples all over the United States and globally by SKYPE.
Individualized half, whole day or week-end experiences with Marcia and Brian. For couples in crisis, or couples that want to bring their relationship to a whole new level of intimacy.
For couples wanting a profound experience of collective wisdom and support from a Mentor Team, we offer full day to weekend intensives where you will work with 2 to 3 mentor couples toegether. Our “team” consists of professional couples who have received specialized training in the EMM approach and have years of experience working with couples.
Same Sex Couples
We welcome same sex couples into EMM. We recognize that whereas the some of the issues gay couples confront are unique to them, at the same time, basic human patterns, emotional reactions and needs are no different from straight couples. We have same sex couples available on our faculty if that is preferred.
