Deeper Connectedness: Empowering marriages through intimate moments
Aimed at making the home environment and oasis from stress, kinesthetic workshop will ensue November 2009 near, but not limited to Orlando, Florida. Husbands and wives can now take a conservative, faith-based seminar with other couples learning the art of stress relieving, relaxation massage. No professional equipment is needed. Modest casual clothing is appropriate for this hands-on workshop in organizations and churches. Defining which strokes to use, when and why they are needed, and how to master the right touch is part of the teaching by MaryAnne Palumbo, Licensed Massage Therapist and educator. Following the demonstrations, MaryAnne walks around the room providing coaching for the couples during their practice time. Her book and DVD, Empowering Marriages Through Intimate Moments; A Guide to Relaxation Massage will be released in mid November to December for at home use.
In our stressed, fast-paced, society quality time in a marriage is almost a thing of the past. According to a poll of 4500 parents by Holiday Inn, “the average couple with children manage a mere 15 minutes a day of ‘quality time’ together and that’s in bed” per Mail Online News Report. “Quality time takes effort. It doesn’t just happen because you and your spouse are in the same room together. It means doing something extra that is not required”, says Jack Perry, an online UK reporter.
The idea for a workshop and video was inspired by Pastor Daniel Mullins, who knew this would empower marriages with a deeper connectedness; provide a comfortable environment of trust, while offering an opportunity to spend social time with other couples.
The pilot workshop was recorded on video, edited and used as one minute video commercials. A picture is worth a thousand words. To view one of them visit the home page of www.calmrelief.com.
