I was fortunate to co-author this fascinating Imago Therapy course designed especially for Synagogues and Jewish couples with Harville Hendrix, founder of Imago therapy. I spent much of my time researching what the Torah has to say about marriage as well as combing through bible verses on marriage, as a way to practically apply the Bible to our everyday lives and marriages. The course is entitled Couplehood as a Spiritual Path.
More inspiration on living in a marriage that is based on Biblical Principles:
- Biblical Marriage Counseling- what is the divine purpose of marriage?
- Principles for a happy marriage
- What does the Bible say about marriage?

What is Imago therapy for Jewish Couples about?
Couplehood as a Spiritual Path is a course designed for religious communities; and is a text based program highlighted with beautiful Bible Verses on Marriage.
Committed partnership can be one of the most accessible ways of experiencing G-d’s love, but it doesn’t always feel that way. No matter how hard couples try, it’s not always easy to “will” love unconditionally.
Achieving and sustaining this kind of love requires an investment of time and energy and a willingness to transcend our usual patterns.
Couplehood as a Spiritual Path takes an in-depth look at the psychological and spiritual workings of intimate relationships by exploring the origins of attraction and conflict and includes Bible versus on marriage.
- Learn a new way to talk and a new way to listen so that communication problems disappear
- Co-create a relationship vision so that you can embark on a new future together that is in line with your personal goals and dreams
- Acquire the skills to manifest this vision together so that you both are on the same page and can make your dreams of a spiritual, growth oriented future achievable
- Discover the “otherness” of one’s partner so that you can stop butting heads
- Uncover the opportunities for emotional healing and spiritual growth for a more fulfilling life
What are people saying about it?
from Rabbi Slatkin’s 2 day Couplehood as a Spiritual Path retreat in Melbourne, Australia:
“This is a very practical workshop/method which teaches both members of a couple how to listen and communicate and show love, care, and appreciation. I would recommend it to all couples. It is like preventative medicine for a marriage because it gave us a way to talk without reacting and speak about each other’s good points.”
