Marriage – Align or Undermine

Promoting healthy values for Grihasthas is essential. Our movement has been plagued with negative paradigms (like the deep dark well) that serve to undermine devotee marriages. Hear responses from our survey on the effects of those paradigms. Are we still ‘preaching’ in ways that are counterproductive to successful Grihastha ashrams? Learn to share effective principles and behaviors to guide devotees in the future to have happier, healthier and more exemplary marriages.

Marriage – Align or Undermine

Bridging the gap between philosophical understanding and practical application, this seminar challenges Grihasthas to develop a model to effectively overcome anathemas and progress to the stage of nistha, by shining the light of Lord Chaitanya’s triad-api verse on our everyday actions. We offer examples, skills and tools to elevate relationship behaviors to the mode of goodness, highlighting how to apply humility, tolerance and respect in our marriages. Come and take the challenge.
