Subregion 5 hosted a Level 3 Blessing Workshop at Pasadena House, California on December 6-7, 2019. It was attended by six second-generation matched couples and was a great success. Having an elder first-generation Blessed Couple with professional marriage counseling experience, as well as a second-generation Blessed Couple presenters who are very involved in developing the Blessed Couples community was a big plus for the overall experience of the participants.
Perhaps the best way to describe the positive experiences of the participants is to share their words from their evaluation of the workshop–specifically, the answers to the question, “my overall impression of the workshop experience”:
“Wonderful.I felt very supported as a Blessed Couple. This was really unexpected. I sort of thought this workshop would just be something I had to do in order to get Blessed. However, it was really special to be here. I am grateful for this opportunity to be here.”
“Good, well organized, great content and speakers. Hearing someone, especially couples who have
experiences, credentials were great. Bringing in inner works was awesome….”
“…it was very great. I love how many second-generation couples could get together and attend workshops with similar goals and discuss about their life changing decisions. Thank you so much!”
“Very informative and resourceful. Very much needed for me. This helped me be more confident for my future actions.”
