About this event

Building an Orthodox Christian Marriage

Marital conflict impacts our mental, physical, and spiritual health. What are the roots of relational discord? How can we cultivate behaviors and practices that restore our marital commitment?

This workshop will draw from the wisdom of Orthodox tradition together with contemporary literature in the field of psychology to provide practical suggestions for conflict resolution and relational growth.
