The Love Lab #2: Cultivating Fondness, Admiration & Appreciation to spark Magic & Buffer from Stressors
In the next step of our love journey together, we become aware of the 4 ‘horsemen of the apocalypse’ – behaviours that science indicates are the most detrimental in romantic relationships. We then deep dive into the practice of shared fondness, admiration and appreciation – the antidote to one of these horsemen.
We will explore what you really do love, value and appreciate about your partner and your relationship, as we continue to share little nuggets of science and holistic practices in our journey towards raised consciousness.
When we bring out the positive in our romantic relationships, we spark magic in our connections that act as a buffer from taking each other’s efforts and unique qualities ‘for granted’ and life’s many other stressors.
There are limited spaces for these events, so we honor a first come, first served process.

The Love Lab builds on the research of world-renowned award-winning psychologist Dr John Gottman. Based on his findings, researchers are able to predict with 90% accuracy the long-term outcome between couples. In our couple’s events, we will explore the key practices that are consistently found in all long-term, happy, loving romantic relationships.
Did you know:
The energy we cultivate in our romantic relationships ripples out through all areas of our lives and into the lives of those around us. In this highly charged space, we have the opportunity to magnify potent healing energies such as happiness, vitality, resilience and creativity.
The monthly Love Labs will be interactive and embedded with conscious practices and life’s little luxuries. Delicious tea and treats will be provided as we celebrate this beautiful co-created love space!
We have 7 parts of the Love Lab series planned, each building upon the previous ones.
They can be attended individually, however the more you attend, the more your relationship will benefit as each couple’s event brings a new and different key practice to the table – therefore we have created a huge discount for you who decide to dance this whole journey to a conscious lasting positive relationship with us.
Please note that events 5, 6 & 7 are more advanced and therefore do require that you have attended at least 2 prior.
