“A couples therapist vision of heaven–about 100 couples eagerly open to learning everything we had to teach about the art and craft of loving in a setting that is so awe-inspiring, we could not help but kneel in reverence. Facilitating the Banff Couples Conference was for us one of the all time peak experiences of our long career.”
“As a couple, we thoroughly loved the inspiring adventure of presenting at the Banff Couples Conference.
We landed in a magnificently beautiful space. We were surrounded by an enthusiastic group of excited, inquisitive couples.
The organizers could not be more accommodating and friendly.
The whole event was an unforgettable, stimulating and transformational couples “happening!”
Hello Friends of the Banff Couples Conference,
Kate and Joel here, writing to re-connect with you and encourage you to keep your relationship alive and well always!
We were privileged to facilitate last year’s conference and experienced an amazing love fest with all of you! For us, as presenters, it was a highlight of our thirty year teaching career. For one, we were so touched by your openness, generosity of spirit, and willingness to jump in. You are a unique group of people with so much love to share.
For the entire weekend we felt embraced by the committee members who work so tirelessly to make the conference happen. It was easy to be with all of you, easy to get up and share with you, and easy to laugh, dance, and have fun with you.
As we write this our hearts are full of gratitude for having shared such a special conference venue. Here is a reminder from our time together last year:
IT’S NOT ABOUT THE SHOES!
(If you don’t get this, ask someone who was there)
Sending good wishes and love for all your relationship endeavors!
As teachers and counselors specializing in relationships for about 40 years, and together as a couple for 48 years, we are especially grateful when our audience/participants are ready to go deep, and committed not only to their partner but also to doing the work required to have the best relationship possible. So when we first facilitated the Banff Couples Conference, we were delighted with nearly everyone’s readiness. Yes, these couples also come to the retreat to have fun, to dance, and to get away from their daily routines, but they also that the fun will be greater if they deepen their intimacy as couples.
Our work is perhaps 90% experiential, and the couples loved this. They also loved each time the two of us were vulnerable about the issues in our own relationship. This helped everyone relate more with us, rather than see us as teachers somewhere above them.
We would say that many of the Banff Couples have done enough work on themselves that they could probably lead their own couples groups. We’re delighted to work with an advanced couples group, and to be invited back.
We were honoured and delighted to be the Facilitators at the 2015 Banff Couples Conference in Lake Louise. This was a truly rewarding experience for the two of us, and it will be a weekend that we will recall with fond memories for years to come. It was no doubt the highlight of our careers as couples therapists.
Our appreciation goes out to the planning committee who were very supportive over the past year, and over the weekend. We enjoyed preparing for an audience that we knew would be dedicated and devoted to enriching their relationships.
The couples attending were attentive, full of fun, and open to participating in all that we had planned for them. We felt their warmth from the get go. We were particularly impressed with how involved and engaged they were with the material and with each other.
The Conference was so well organized and the surroundings were exquisitely beautiful, which – without a doubt – contributed to the success of the weekend. Hats off to the committee for arranging the delicious lunch buffets, and that “happening” dinner dance on Saturday night!! Wow, this group sure loves to dance!!!
Our warm wishes to you all for your continued success in the years to come!!
