MENFRIENDS (Conscious Partnerships): Seminar/Workshop

In a relationship? Happy but somehow can't help but think, is this it? Perhaps doubt has crept in, can man-to-man relationships really work? Yes you've heard of long-term relationships among guys, but still you wonder, is there a secret to long, happy, and fulfilling same-sex relationships?

MENFRIENDS (Conscious Partnerships)
A Two-day Seminar/Workshop

This is a two-day seminar/workshop for gay couples who wish to explore deeper understanding about the nature of interpersonal relationships. It will guide couples to understand the roots of their attraction for each other (chemistry), help them identify and clarify their common goals as partners and individuals, and make them understand the dynamics of effective communication. This involves short lectures, discussions, and sharing of experiences. The workshop is patterned after the perspective of the Conscious Marriage Model by John Lucas and Lorna Benjamin's Structural Analysis of Social Behavior, facilitated by AJ Sagmit (Ph.D. candidate, Ateneo de Manila University), and hosted by Migs the Manila Gay Guy (Life Coach, Hudson Institute of Santa Barbara, California).

Venue: Makati City (exact venue to be sent to registered participants)
