“The skills I learned in Mary’s course have been trans-formative for me in deepening my relationship with myself, with others, and professionally!”

“I am wowed by her depth of life skills she’s honed, translated and now teaching about relational health.    Mary has a high level of self awareness and is able to impart her messages with integrity, respect for others, clarity, and humor.  She practices and models what she teaches and created an environment for me to explore the new skills and start my own process of being in healthy relationships.”

Questions about our Courses?

Note: All Relational Mastery Training programs begin with attendance at a 12-hour in-person or online course called “Introduction to Healthy Relationships”.

Every course is designed to accommodate men and women.  Every student learns skills that are transferable to all of their relationships.  During the course all personal information is confidential and no student is involved in revealing or discussing personal and ongoing relationships.

Meaning,  you can attend and be considering a separation; your personal situation will not be discussed in the course. You could be having serious workplace difficulties; your personal situation will not be apart of the skill learning.  You could be considering marriage, your personal decisions around any of your current relationships will not be the basis for the group learning.

All classes are limited to 18 participants, so every student receives considered personal attention in developing the skills needed to be effective in relating to all people they interact with.

What is experiential learning?

Learning by “doing”.  Throughout our courses, you will learn a skill and then put it to use in real life experience. You will be guided in how to be effective and learn from your own personal experiences, throughout the course.

Our experiential methodology is to PRACTICE  the skills you learn, first in the safety of guided group work. Then you will USE (U) the skills in real life, and apply it to your own life. Through your personal experience and developed effectiveness, you will be able to transfer the skills learned in a group setting,  to any of your life situations.  Relational Training programs you will show you how “one person can make a difference in any of your relationships”. It is not necessary to send all your family, friends and colleagues to training so you can all relate effectively.  You, with the skills you learn, practice and use, will, through your own modeling of relating effectively be teaching/showing others. 


Are the courses taught a form of “therapy”?

No. Through our Relational Health training the focus is always on the Here and Now. You learn skills to apply to your life today.  Use of the skills is often ‘therapeutic’. However, none of our courses are designed around analyzing the “past”, or looking back at previous life events.  Without a doubt some of our most harmful communication skills come from past relating and past hurts or trauma.  However, the focus on today, strengthens the development of skill that will break old patterns of relating.  Often students tell us, “ I did all my healing, and forgave the past”; however, I keep ending up in the same arguments, same dysfunction, same patterns of grief and discouragement.  Relational Health Training breaks those patterns by giving new skills that are effective and will keep you moving forward in the now.

Can you accommodate disabilities?

Yes.  You can sit, stand, rest in any position you need to create effective learning for yourself.  If you have specific needs which require greater assistance such as a sign language translator, we will work with you to be sure you will have an effective learning experience.  All of our course curriculums are taught to four ways of learning; oral, kinesthetic, visual and spatial understanding.


Do your courses carry a 100% money back guarantee?
