There’s an anonymous quote that says, “Life is a dance, you learn as you go. Sometimes you lead and sometimes you follow. Don’t worry that you don’t know, you learn as you go.”
And I would add, that if life is a dance, you need a dance partner to share it with.
This is because “a primary, committed relationship is a stabilizing influence; it frees time and attention for other issues.” (Dan Millman, No Ordinary Moments)
We lead our best lives when we are in a steady and happy partnership. Lifelong couple relationships positively influence longevity, health, career and finances. Partners in long-term relationships are less stressed and have happier children. And married people feel a greater sense of belonging in their broader communities. (Marriage and Relationship Education by W. Kim Halford)
Whether you waltz through life or salsa along, the key is to keep the dancing going. Just like on the dance floor, you can do this by learning the right moves. We all have instinctive moves, but when the dance becomes more intricate we can’t keep up if we don’t learn the steps.
Communication is no different. We all have skills in this area which easily carry us through the honeymoon stage of marriage. As other concerns crowd in and our relationship becomes more complex, we ensure that it also deepens and improves by learning more advanced communication skills.
I saw this kind of dedication to the relationship in my parents’ marriage and have made it my mission to teach other couples the skills which will make their couples dance beautiful, fun and collaborative. My workshops provide happy couples with skills and tips for prolonging their happiness and resolving conflicts easily and without stress.
I would love to see you at the next workshop, to be held at the OU Center on Tuesday, May 15, 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM.
Only 25 NIS per person, including refreshments!
