ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Clergy Marriage Enrichment is a focused opportunity to refresh, redirect and restore a clergy couple’s relationship. Through an experience employing a variety of tools which promote personal awareness and develop a couple’s unique communication and connecting skills, the program strengthens behaviors which can become the virtues (habits) of a spiritually enriching marriage. The Mandela Center program will provide 6 to 8 hours of small group and individual couple sessions with the clergy couple leaders as well as plenty of free time for personal reflection.
