The Gottman 7 Principles
The workshop is great for couples at any stage in their relationship. It is based on decades of data and research regarding relationship satisfaction, and follows the outline of the groundbreaking book, 7 Principles for Making Marriage Work, by John Gottman. As part of the workshop you will receive a copy of the book plus two workbooks per couple, which will be used on the days “At Sea”. This workshop is unique, as a good portion of the time is spent one on one with your partner, doing simple exercises that bring your relationship to a new and closer level. Georgia will share the research and some fun anecdotes, then set you up for success as you learn together. She’ll always be close to lend a hand if you have questions or need help. Many people shy away from marriage workshops because they are worried about self-disclosure or embarrassment in a group. I can guarantee there will be none of that here. Fun, positivity, and time to make your life better together is what you will get. You will have time to enjoy each other while developing skills to strengthen friendship, increase intimacy, and prepare for a great future together.

FALMOUTH, JAMAICA- February 17
.Nestled right between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Falmouth is the perfect backdrop for discovery in Jamaica during your cruise— but there’s lots to do right there. For a relaxing ride along the shoreline, hop on horseback in Chukkah Beach. Cruise to Falmouth and head to the Water Square and jam out with the locals to live reggae. Culture cravers can get their fix during high tea at the historical Good Hope Estate overlooking the Queen of Spain Valley. And a trip to Falmouth wouldn’t be complete without chowing down on fiery jerk chicken and rum cake, two local favorites.
