relationship_zen_website_header_about.jpg

We invite couples of all types to uncover their innate ability to maximize their relationships, to elevate their lives, and to transform our communities through transformative community learning experiences.

That gap between where you want your relationship to be and where it is today is our passion. We bring you a unique combination of life skills coaching, leadership development, and conflict management wrapped up in years of experience as adult educators and professional facilitators.

WHY DO WE DO IT?

Our mission is to get your relationship to level-up in terms of connection, passion, and meaning because we believe that relationships are core to creating healthier families and communities.

This is important to us because we became deeply appreciative of the impact of unhealthy relationships on individuals of all ages and communities all over the world.

We were inspired by our experiences growing up in divorced families and with media that portrayed what we found to be a dysfunctional version of love, one characterized by attachment rather than unconditional love.

Beginning in 2011, we embarked on an intentional and deep learning journey to understand ourselves and how to co-create a relationship characterized by “Two Wholes, Sharing a Path”. Today, we’re here to help you join the movement too.

HOW DO WE DO IT?

  1. By inviting you to see your relationship as a REAL opportunity to uplift your happiness, potential, and experience.

  2. By connecting you with other relationship nerds so that you’re in that 1% of relationships who REALLY love each other unconditionally, who go beyond cycles of bickering, stalemates, distrust, disappointments, blame, miscommunication, indifference or boredom, and who actually decide to unlock their shared potential.

  3. By sharing our framework and tactics so you can take unnecessary guesswork and frustration out of it all. We will work with you as you are, as we get to work on CONSCIOUS love.

If you’re ready to do the work with us, let’s do this!

"We're not two halves, we're two wholes sharing a path." - Lindsey & David

WHAT PEOPLE THINK?

Our facilitation style is fun, relatable, insightful, and transformative. We’re grateful that 100% of fellow relationship nerds who’ve attended our events would highly recommend our sessions and either rated them as Excellent or Very Good.

“David and Lindsey were super friendly and welcoming! They shared a lot about themselves as individuals and as a couple. I appreciate how open they are, it really contributed to my learning and how I think about my relationship.”


“The session was very informative and provided practical advice for growing through changes in my relationship. Lindsey and David created a safe and positive environment for healthy discussion. It was a great experience!”


“David and Lindsey were highly engaging, welcoming, inclusive, honest, and most importantly, informative. Their knowledge and experiences about relationships/love/theories were well demonstrated throughout the session.”


“I feel like the facilitators were honest, genuine, and people with whom you can trust. I like that David and Lindsey not only used resources, but that they also used their own experiences too!”

We also want to be upfront that our coaching is not meant to substitute psychotherapy and counselling, although working with us or our resources can be therapeutic.

WHO INSPIRES US?

Our family, our friends, our community, our mentors, and these folks…

"The day the relationship you have with yourself is great — when you love yourself unconditionally, when you respect yourself 100 percent, when you honor yourself, and you never do anything against yourself — when finally you are that way, then you will attract the right [person]." - Don Miguel Ruiz (Author of the Mastery of Love)"

A genuine relationship is one that is not dominated by the ego with its image-making and self-seeking. In a genuine relationship, there is an outward flow of open, alert attention toward the other person in which there is no wanting whatsoever.”  - Eckhart Tolle (Author of The Power of Now)

“Love rests on two pillars: surrender and autonomy. Our need for togetherness exists alongside our need for separateness.” - Esther Perel (Author of Mating in Captivity)
