Happily ever after is not by chance. Award-winning marriage researchers and bestselling authors Drs. John and Julie Gottman contend that lifelong happiness happens by choice—the choice each person in a relationship makes to remain open, remain curious, and, most of all, to keep talking to one another. The Gottmans arrive at Powell's City of Books to offer an ingenious and simple-to-implement approach to effective relationship communication. Together, they explore perspectives from their book, Eight Dates: Essential Conversations for a Lifetime of Love, encouraging every couple to open up to one another and discuss all things difficult or embarrassing—trust, family, money, sex, dreams, conflict, and more. Join us for an intensive and innovative guide to sharing your life with the person you love, and developing the relationship skills to become braver, more active, and more emotionally intimate.Registration Site
