Q1: I am single but hope to be in a relationship in the
future. Can I join this workshop? 

A: We invite you to participate in other events we are
offering because we see those as a better fit.  This event
is designed for current couples and includes exercises
most relevant to partners.


Q2: My spouse or partner cannot (or does not want to) attend this workshop but I would like to participate as an individual. Is that OK?

A: Because the exercises and activities are all designed for current couples, we want to keep things simple in terms of the format. In addition, we believe that couples can be most effective in supporting other couples and that the needs and interests of single people are more suited to other workshops we offer.
