Cruise offers couples groundbreaking workshop and whole lot more

Mexican cruise gives chance to understand, repair and strengthen relationships
with groundbreaking, highly effective programme
Couples always feel they need a getaway -- somewhere romantic, relaxing and rejuvenating with time to rekindle and reconnect. The reality, however, is that they go home to the same problems and conflicts. Getting away from relationship issues is not the same as learning concrete tools to be able to deal with them.
Relationship experts have teamed with Princess Cruises to offer the Hold Me Tight Couples Workshop aboard the Sapphire Princess.
The Hold Me Tight Relationship Enhancement Program is based on the best-selling book Hold Me Tight by Sue Johnson, founder of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). The groundbreaking program successfully helps couples create stronger, more secure relationships.
The 7-day family friendly cruise to Mexico gives couples the chance to reconnect and work on their relationship while enjoying all the fun of a great cruise. Fun and engaging children’s programs keep the kids happy while parents can focus on their relationship. There is plenty of family time as well.
The cruise departs from Los Angeles on March 23, 2013, and stops include Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.
The couples’ workshop will be led by clinical psychologists Lisa Blum and Silvina Irwin who run the EFT Resource Center, a source for information, events and workshops for couples in the greater Los Angeles area.
Participants in the workshop experience the power of the workshop to fundamentally change the way they interact with each other. As one couple said, “I felt like it helped me and my partner understand what was happening between us in rough moments and give us a map for how to find out way out…It is so nice to have such a clear model of how to communicate. We are truly grateful."
“Combining this workshop with a luxurious cruise is the ultimate way to reconnect with your partner in an intentional way. We offer couples a map to help enhance and deepen their bond, and to help heal injuries and rebuild trust. The benefits of this workshop will stay long after the cruise is over. This sets it apart from the usual vacation where the connection gained while away can fade once couples plug back into the routine of their lives at home.”
