Mastering the Mysteries of Love is a program with 40 years of proof of effectiveness. Originally created and researched by Dr. Bernard Guerney at Penn State University as Relationship Enhancement, it was updated by Dr. Guerney and Mary Ortwein of IDEALS for Families and Communities in 2008. Couples learn skills that enable them to reach new depths of understanding of each other. When they do, problems that loomed large come down to a size they can deal with. This workshop is intended equally for couples who wish to increase overall relationship satisfaction and for couples who want to begin to re-open channels of caring and love in their relationship.
