The longing for things to go well in a relationship is unbroken. It can be understood as a longing for the “PAIR of people”. Being there for each other lovingly and faithfully, doing good to each other and, if necessary
, becoming good again are spiritual processes in
everyday relationships.

In this seminar, you will experience and learn along the seven longing stations of the relationship path in the Bio.Garden.Eden how you can find a deeper relationship in your togetherness.

Relationship spiritual impulses, personal reflections, couple conversations and careful exchanges in the group can
enrich your personal life as well as your shared life.
