What does it take to sustain and deepen intimacy over the years? How do we nurture peacemaking in our precious relationships so as to ‘be patterns and examples” for others? Whether you are just setting out on the adventure of a committed relationship or have been together for many moons, whether your relationship is mixed or same gendered, bring your beloved and join us for a joyful retreat in which we will explore the practices and skills involved in nurturing our relationships. For more of an introduction, watch the Friends Couple Enrichment QuakerSpeak video.
Long-time Friends, now members of Durham (NC) Monthly Meeting, Mike and Marsha Green have been leading retreats for families and couples since the early 1990s. They currently reside in a generational bubble–children launched, no grandchildren, parents released to whatever lies beyond. For many years, Mike served as a Core Teacher with the School of the Spirit Ministry and Marsha served on the boards of Friends Journal and Carolina Friends School. Recently, as Resident Friends in Auckland, New Zealand, they traveled extensively in the ministry and led the first Friends Couple Enrichment event there. After 36 years, the blessing of having one another is renewed daily.
