The seven days of our latest Odyssey flew by and our couple “graduated” today. This is a very emotional experience for Bryce and I. Over the course of the week we get to know our couple intimately and become their cheer-leaders and coaches as they navigate through the shoals of their relationship. By the second day we have figured out what some of their obstacles are to a robust relationship; by the third day they are learning tools that will help them connect; they are also getting a sense of hope that the marriage can be saved. Usually by the fifth day our couple is using their new-found tools as we coach and cheer them on. On the sixth day they are looking forward to returning home and practicing their new skills on a daily basis. By this time we see in their faces and body language a renewed vigor and closeness that was lacking at the start. And so today we sent off our latest couple back into their world with a confidence that they can re-connect on a new and much more intimate level.
