Transformation Through Connection

Imago Community Educator Program

The Imago Community Educator Program enables individuals who are passionate about relationship education to present Imago-based seminars to couples and groups within their respective communities. Imago Community Educators will be trained over a four-day period in the fundamentals of Imago Relationship Theory and will develop their presentation skills and marketing techniques in order to present these seminars in community centers, churches, synagogues, schools, and other institutions.

    As we continue to live in this challenging time, our “normal” opportunities for sharing with and supporting couples are no longer possible.  We have been focused on revising some old experiences and creating new ones.  We hope this will be relevant and helpful. 

    This will be a group of Imago educated couples who wish to keep and build full aliveness in their relationship. The group will meet monthly.  

    We will introduce a relevant topic each month by sharing an experience from our own Journey.  There will be opportunity for group input and interaction as well as exercises for couples to explore their own Journey privately.

    We are offering a morning session (10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.) and an evening session (7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.) Couples will make a six-month commitment to ONE of these groups.  (If a couple must miss one session, one of will meet with them privately for 30 minutes.)

    As we continue to live in this challenging time, our “normal” opportunities for sharing with and supporting couples are no longer possible.  We have been focused on revising some old experiences and creating new ones.  We hope this will be relevant and helpful. 

    Intimacy is part of our Essence.  It is something we need and long for in order to experience Full Aliveness.  And, yet it is often difficult, scary, hurtful, shaming, and confusing.  What makes it so hard?

    During these six hours together, we will explore the definition and different types of intimacy. We will describe the components for creating the safety necessary to experience intimate connection.

    Using a variety of dialogues, you will privately explore and communicate your personal needs and ways of expressing intimacy with your Partner. We will be available to support you during these processes.

    Finally, you will create two action plans based on what you have learned about yourself and your Partner. Your personal plan will identify ways you will contribute to your Space to support and build intimacy. Together you will create a plan to consciously move toward a more intimate connection.

    Times:  9:00 a.m. -11:00 a.m.; 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.; 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. (EDT)

    WHEN: Friday, AUGUST 14

    WHERE:  ZOOM

    TIME: 12pm to 1:30pm

    "Bring your own lunch "

    RSVP: REPLY TO Dianne Modell diannelcsw@gmail.com or Suzanna Hillegass  sh@shillegass.com

    We will discuss:

    • What are the experiences that lead to the problem?
    • Physical? Psychological? Relational?
    • What are some treatment strategies?
    • Antidepressants—a small dosage
    • Start/stop.  Faith in erection to return
    • Other ways that the partner can have an orgasm-takes convincing sometimes

    Suzanna's BioI’ve been an Imago therapist for 25 years.  I graduated from Lenox Hill Nursing School in 1965.  In order to help couples with their difficult life journey I became an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist in 2005.  Because sex is such an integral part of being a couple, and because, contrary to what we’re told, sex doesn’t return to a relationship simply because they each understand the other better, I think all relationship therapist should be versed and comfortable talking about sex.
