By taking a no-nonsense scientific approach to relationships, Drs. John and Julie Gottman are able to identify what works and what doesn’t so that couples can create true intimacy, strong friendship, manage conflict, and support a shared vision for their future. During the Art and Science of Love weekend workshops that happen all around the country, attendees are introduced to the nine elements of healthy coupledom, which the Gottman’s call the Sound Relationship House. It reads like a road map to happily ever after if you’re willing to do the work. They also offer intensive workshops at their own home in the San Juan Islands—we’ve heard that couples arrive on the brink of divorce, and leave more in love than ever.
