What is more satisfying than to experience life with our partner as a beautiful, shared dance?
The `Love Sense´-Weekend will help you to feel more accepted by your partner and have less conflicts in your relationship, to feel like your partner is more accessible, responsive and engaged with you. The weekend helps to manage conflict situations effectively in a new way and promotes better understanding and closeness, so that trust and emotional connection can grow.

To navigate our love for one another through the ups and downs of life is not easy. A good habit is, to now and then take a time-out for each other and jointly reflect on the happy and less happy sides of the relationship. The `Love Sense´-Weekend for couples supports and deepens. The weekend takes place in a pleasant atmosphere, and offers a lot of information about what couples moves when the feelings of love and connection sometimes seem to disappear. You will see video fragments of couples who talk about their love, their way to deal with conflicts of painful experiences within the relationship, but especially how they managed to recover their attachment. Then it is your turn. On the basis of supportive questions and assignments, you and your partner will have talks.

The course has been developed by the Canadian couple therapist Sue Johnson and based on the book: Hold me tight - Seven tansforming conversations about a love-filled life, Hachette Book Group 2008.
