Want Your Relationship to Go Beyond Mars and Venus?
By Foster Gamble
John Gray, the renowned author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, has had a huge impact in both the personal and professional aspects of my life. I told him once that I thought he should get a Nobel Peace Prize for creating what might be called the “platinum rule” — beyond the usual “golden rule” — because he was teaching people how to treat their partners the way their partners actually wanted to be treated — rather than just how they themselves would’ve wanted to be treated.
Now he’s got a new book and he’s coming to Rythmia to give a workshop on it where you’ll have the rare opportunity to be up close and personal with him, his wife Bonnie and his daughter Lauren who helps facilitate the workshop.
John’s new book describes in depth the four classic stages of relationship, and how to move through them successfully. He describes the core reasons why couples break up and how to avoid them. He shows that while women especially need care, understanding, and respect… Men tend to be more focused on their need to be trusted, accepted and appreciated. Of course we all need each of these things, but this subtle differentiation can make a dramatic difference in nurturing a relationship to expand and thrive rather than contract and wither.
I have just finished reading this new sequel, and I am astounded by how grounded in science and practically applicable this next level of coaching is. Years of studies correlating emotions, hormone cycles and styles of communication, have led Dr. Gray to a system of specific coaching on relationship effectiveness, the likes of which I have never seen.
Here’s a video from John about his new work:
As a relationship coach and facilitator for two decades, I was exposed to many of the best and brightest in the field. Few had more lasting influence on my own relationships and teaching than John. His remarkable work as a therapist and author has helped countless couples to deepen their intimacy and rejuvenate their love lives. He has awakened millions of people to the vital insight that men and women tend to have different needs, process their emotions in different ways and communicate with different styles. Knowing this can empower us to anticipate and respond to our partners in ways that are far more gratifying.
John’s workshop will run from April 24–27, for two hours each day, and there will be ample time to just hang out with John at meals, at the beach or around the retreat.
