Do you ever feel like there’s something more to your relationship than is currently showing up? There is! Every couple that comes together creates their own unique pattern of form, color, and texture, as if a third energy exists between them. Each couple has a relationship purpose and work to do together.
If you feel that your relationship needs a new definition, a deepening, a renewal, or a way to transition to a new purpose, even if that purpose is to complete your relationship, this workshop is for you!
* know more about how your partner sees your relationship
* have increased your ability to communicate who you are and what you want in your relationship
* have a better understanding of sexual essence, and the masculine and the feminine in each of us
* know more about your partner’s unfinished childhood wounds and appropriate ways to be their healer
* understand more about what your vision of a sacred relationship is
* know what stage of relationship you are in
* experience an Integral, holistic approach to Spirit in Relationship
* feel closer to your partner
* know more about why you came together, what you are here to do together, your sacred purpose as a couple

NEW! Anyaa at the South East Women’s Herbal Conference 2012!
Sacred Purpose in Relationship: A two-part download (it will take a bit of time depending on your ISP. Please be patient: It’s worth it!)
What participants have to say:
Anyaa and Gary together brought both of their insights to the group and created a beautiful space for openness and honesty from the couples. There were surprises, laughter, and amazing learning experiences that will propel us on our path as a couple!
We really were not sure what to expect so we came with little expectation, but are leaving with a good sense of “direction” in our relationship!
I was impressed with the safe and sacred space you created. None of the exercises or homework felt intimidating. Gary and Anyaa created openness and vulnerability in an easy, non-threatening way.
The Couples Workshop really helps to sort out your relationship and understand why your partner thinks and does what they do!
It exceeded any expectation…far easier, more meaningful, and more fun than anticipated!
I was a little concerned that spirituality would be a primary focus, and that it might make my husband uncomfortable…instead, the atmosphere was ‘join in as you are comfortable’ with language, activities, etc.
So glad we chose to do this! Immensely rewarding!
Great job! Nice combination of modeling Gary and Anyaa’s own work as a couple, individual journaling, couple’s work, etc
Being able to discover each others wounds and the needs that arise from there was very valuable. It created a new opening for healing in our relationship.
I believe that the Couples Workshop is a positive reinforcement of the ideals that brought us together.
The trust, intimacy and openness of the 10 couples was the most powerful experience for me. Anyaa and Gary created a safe space, and the couples who showed up were open and ready to grow.
I’d recommend this to other couples…this is great work and has brought my partner and I closer.
It was TOO SHORT! In other words, I was sorry to see it end! You exceeded my expectations.
Thank you both for enriching our lives and being such an integral part of our journey as selves and partners.
The space held is so beautiful – the consciousness is very high!
Deliciously met and exceeded my expectations! It is expansive and juicy!
I was very touched to hear the depth of my partner’s commitment to our relationship and to learn how deep our purposes actually align. I also felt it very helpful to learn the many tools of communication that will help us in more difficult moments.
This is an excellent introduction to deep and effective communication and I feel touches something unique but important that other workshops don’t—specifically what we are creating together.
I feel that a whole new access to intimacy and amazing relationship has opened up.The Imago dialogue created deep intimacy and healing and understanding. The shared vision assignment was fun and inspiring for us.
The most powerful experience for me was everyone reading their sacred purpose…it was like 10 weddings in one day!
The Couples Journey was the most touching experience for us. We really connected and had an incredibly similar journey that proved to us that we are in the right place.
“I appreciate Anyaa’s range of experience and modalities to choose from. I liked her direct, focused and clear masculine. I appreciated Gary’s sweet, sensitive playful character, his feminine. I look forward to more work together. Thanks!”
“The most touching and powerful experience for us was all the sharing, stories, and struggles- very much for the senses and the psyche. So important!!! Just focusing on ourselves as a couple, not on all the other roles we play in life- very touching.”
“This is the first couples work that we have done. Fear arose that it would be to much like “therapy”, however the pace and content of the class was such that, without touching on personal or deep-psyche issues, we could still go deep, and the sacred purpose result was excellent.”
“I did not know what to expect but the workshop gave us a sense of renewal and some good practical pointers.”
“I would recommend your workshops to other couples, as I feel we got a lot that was of value from it, and I saw other benefit from it as well.”
“Overall, the couples workshops brought us closer together; and gave me more clarity about our relationship, so I would say that it met my expectations.”
2008 and 2009 participants:
“I have recommended this to others already because we experienced such a beautiful shift in our own awareness of ourselves and how it translates to our relationship as a couple. Seeing the impact it has also had on our children has been amazing.” – Nikki & Denny, Cincinnati
“This is the first couples work (my partner) and I have done. His fear was that it would be like “therapy”, however, the pace and content of the class was such that we could still go deep without touching on deep-psyche, personal issues and the sacred purpose result was excellent.” – Judith, Asheville
“I was more than satisfied, and I cemented in some old models with new skills, insights and information to challenge and grow. Fun and very comfortable!” – male participant, NC
“The weekend was marvelous! I felt cared for, honored, and challenged. It exceeded my expectations.….would definitely recommend this to other couples. I love how the workshop honors our courage and “bigness” in choosing Sacred Relationship, and at the same time, honors the “trenches” ~ the day-to-day unfolding of partnership. “ – Mary, Cincinnati
“…it is very important soothing exhilarating healing work and very well facilitated by people who have gone and are going through the process themselves. There is no fear or resistance against anything that comes up while doing this work. How freeing that is! And how freeing to share this work with others couples. They do a great job together. I felt free to be myself and felt that my partner would be cared for and supported when needed.” – Mica, Cincinnati
“I just want to chime in here and add that Marcus and I had a magnificent time with Anyaa and Gary! They were spectacularly synchronized in their presentation and facilitation – a glowing example of how powerfully a couple can align in doing Sacred Work! Thank you both for having mirrored that to us, Anyaa! The new ‘tools’ you and Gary gave us are in our special toolbox now. I really think this workshop with you was the icing on the cake after Marcus and I going through the HPP together as a couple! Although he and I have facilitated seminars/workshops together, doing our Sacred Work, having participated in your couples workshop has added a new dimension to our Purpose as a Couple! Blessed Be!” – Silvia and Marcus
“You two totally rock! I feel that you create & hold sacred space easily, gracefully and beautifully. The pace of your workshop was perfect. The balance of activities and information was perfect. You work together beautifully and in a completely synergistic manner. You live what you teach. You teach the important portions of the mysteries in a simple, practical, useful way, devoid of fluff and extraneous ceremony and mental/physical contortions. You approach your workshops honestly, openly, lovingly, practically and free of ego. You make learning/experiencing fun, comfortable and easy.” – Marcus Geier, Atlanta
