How to Show Up and Love (Part I)

David and Kristen Finch

When Dave and Kristen Finch set out to build a happier neurologically-mixed marriage, they didn’t know it would mean rebuilding their relationships with themselves. Actually, scratch that. Dave was the one who didn’t know; Kristen had already figured this out. Spend the day with Kristen and Dave in this delightful workshop designed to give you actionable insights into the behaviors that will make or break any relationship: yours. You and your partner will laugh with recognition as the couple shares what has taken Dave more than a decade to figure out – and what Kristen sorted out in thirty coffee-drenched minutes. You won’t learn any “life hacks” or light-touch, get-happy-quick schemes. You won’t have “How To Fix Your Marriage, No Really, Try This One Thing” shoved down your throat. Instead, you’ll learn why and how to simply Show Up and Love in your neurodiverse relationship.

12:00 PM – 1:OO PM LUNCH

Standard Attendees are welcome to purchase lunch in the Newton-Wellesley Cafeteria or enjoy lunch they have brought from home.

Standard Attendees Plus will be provided a catered lunch from AANE.

1:00 PM – 3:00 PM KEYNOTE ADDRESS
