Marriage Enrichment Weekend May 2011

As a trained Leader Couple, Jennifer & Gary facilitate Marriage Refreshment & Enrichment weekends 4 times each year here at Rivendell. Refer to our Calendar of Events page for our next weekend.

Marriage Enrichment weekends invite couples who value their marriage and who want their relationship to be strong and enduring. We seek to offer skills and experiences that help increase marital intimacy and mutual understanding. Couples committed to the present and future growth of their marriage will benefit from this experience.

During the weekend, small group process, including private and public couple dialogue, aids couples in learning that “we are not alone” in dealing with the typical issues in marriage. Learning new skills, sharing from experience, and affirming each other within a small group of caring couples provides powerful support for building positive bonds in marriage.

Jennifer & Gary are members of
Couples for Marriage Enrichment Australia (CMEA)which is an organisation committed to the support and strengthening of the marital relationship between a man and a woman. Their activities include weekend marriage enrichment retreats, shorter seminars and local support groups, training of marriage enrichment leader couples and the publication of regular newsletters. Some of these events are sponsored by community groups an
d churches.

As a trained Leader Couple, we endeavour to create an environment of safety and openness in which couples can relax their defenses, affirm their strengths, and be open to change. Examining one’s marriage, identifying needed changes, setting goals, and taking steps to reach these goals make marriage enrichment work!
