Mindful Marriage:

a premarital workshop

Practice effective communication for everlasting intimacy. 

Congratulations on your engagement! Couples who choose to participate in our premarital workshop will learn valuable tools to create and maintain a meaningful and fulfilling marriage. As a couple, you will explore goals and expectations that you have for your relationship with the guidance of our workshop facilitators.


Participants in our workshop will practice being assertive so they can express their needs while being respectful to their partner.  Couples will practice conflict management skills and will explore how to successfully talk about hard topics that may include: sexual health, lifestyle goals, finances, family of origin influences, values, parenting (or not), and other priorities in your relationship.

The Mindful Marriage workshop is a 6 week online group that gives couples the opportunity to discuss important topics and practice meaningful communication techniques. Couples can start at any time and progress through the remaining weeks.


*This workshop fulfills the requirements for the Twogether in Texas program. Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate that will waive their state marriage license fees and the waiting period.
