About the event
When couples call us for relationship support, communication is the most common issue they need help with. Many of them say it's the #1 problem in their relationship.
Think about your own relationship. What happens when your communication doesn’t work? Perhaps you’ll recognize yourself in what couples have told us over the years.

- Couples tell us that when they can’t communicate with their partner they …
- Fight and argue.
- Isolate themselves.
- Get snippy and sarcastic.
- Give the silent treatment.
- Turn away from one another.
- Lose trust.
- Get lost in I-said-you-said volleys.
- Can’t reach agreement.
- Give up and stop trying.
It’s very disheartening and exhausting when you can’t communicate like loving partners. Worst of all, it doesn’t take long before poor communication begins to be felt in your level of connectedness. You start to feel on edge with each other, tiptoeing on eggshells so you won’t set off the next explosion. You protect yourselves and pull away from each other.
This is a dangerous spot in a marriage or long-term relationship, because your very foundation is your love, connection, and trust. None of us can afford our foundation of connection to erode over time, at least not if we want to keep our relationships healthy and happy.
Communication is logical AND emotional. You have to use effective communication techniques AND you have to make an emotional connection. If you don’t make an emotional connection, or the emotional connection is disturbed, you can talk all you want, with the best tools in the world, and it still won’t land.
The bridge of the emotional connection, plus effective communication skills, is what makes is possible to peacefully discuss all the practical information that’s required to survive and run a modern life, like who picks up the kids and when; how we get food; how to sign up for health insurance, etc. The emotional connection is absolutely essential if you want to have difficult conversations about disagreements, intimacy, boundaries, needs, or any other important relationship talk.
Thousands of couples have told us they long for peaceful, loving, effective communication. It is because of this longing that we designed this six-week course, Connect! Loving Communication For Couples.
Between the two us, we have over 40 years experience coaching and educating couples. We are constantly refining and adjusting the tools to work better. This course is a step-by-step process designed for busy couples to get cutting-edge insights and techniques without needing to book a hotel room or break the bank.
Some of the highlights of what you’ll learn:
- How to make an emotional connection (the prerequisite for successful communication).
- How to modify or avoid triggers that keep you from listening.
- How to stay in the moment as you communicate.
- How to access vulnerable communication and hold space for your partner to do so.
- How to move yourself from anger to love and appreciation.
- How to clean up mistakes and make effective apologies.
- Plus, specific step-by-step communication tools to accomplish all this.
What's in the course
We’ve made it as simple and easy to do as possible. Each week for 6 weeks, we meet for 90 minutes via Zoom. In each session, we’ll teach core insights and techniques, and you practice with your partner at home, with our guidance.
You will receive all the tools and techniques you learn as written PDF documents. You will get recordings of the classes and can access it as long as you like afterwards.
Each week, we’ll give you a few key practices to experiment with. That’s it. There are no books or academic texts to read; no extra videos to watch; no essays to write. There’s no test at the end, just the two of you doing your best to connect and try on new tools.
You’ll get personal coaching and guidance from Sonika and Christian. During the course, you can text or email us any questions you have.
The course is $495 per couple.
