The Art & Science of Love Couples Workshop

Looking for a couples marriage retreat that will help you reconnect and recommit with your partner? The Art & Science of Love Couples Weekend Workshop may be exactly what you need. This workshop is based on over 40 years of research by Dr. John Gottman and intended for ALL couples in a committed relationship.

The Art of feeling more connected to your partner and the Science of research-backed skill building

Typically couples wait, on the average, more than six years after marital discord begins before they seek professional help. Skills learned in this workshop will get you started on the road to relationship recovery. The workshop can also be renewing for couples with a good relationship who want to have a great one.

Thousands of couples have attended The Art & Science of Love Workshop, which is taught by either Drs. John and Julie Gottman in Seattle or Certified Gottman Therapists around the world. Dr. Gottman has found that these workshops achieve results similar to those of 6 months of marital therapy* and they produce positive results for 94% of those who attend**. Feel like you need more individual attention than a workshop can offer? Combining the Art & Science of Love Couples Weekend Workshop with an individualized intensive marathon therapy session may be the ideal combination for some couples. This cost-effective package includes a three-hour session on the Friday before the workshop, the dynamic and experiential Art & Science of Love Couples Workshop, and 6 hours of therapy to target specific concerns on the Monday following the workshop (alternate days and times for the individualized sessions can also be arranged).  Also, participants interested in this option must register at least one month prior to The Art & Science of Love Couples Workshop and contact the therapist of their choice (Mary Beth George or Alysha Roll).

What couples who attended the Art & SCIENCE of Love presented by Alysha and Mary Beth said:


Thank you – well worth the time and money – a great investment for our marriage.


Processing past regrettable incidents was very helpful in talking and being heard on an issue we had felt bad about for 2 years. It gave us hope that we will be able to gently take out the garbage.


Gave me hope that my husband will understand that he can have a perception of a situation and mine may be different.


It gave me the tools to address major conflict area and confidence to use them.


Came to epiphany on key area of conflict, which helped us move forward.

We welcome couples from around the world and in our hometown of Kingwood, Texas and the greater Houston areas. We’re a short drive or flight from Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio and New Orleans areas.
