Private Pre-Cana

It was great meeting with you, very enlightening.  We truly feel like the concepts you shared with us are simple, practical and extremely valuable.  We can’t thank you enough.

It was a pleasure spending time with you last night Peter. We appreciate all your insight… Didn’t know it was possible, but I am even MORE excited to get married. Thanks again!

We wanted to thank you for taking the time to coach us on Saturday in the preparation for our marriage.  This has been a truly insightful discussion and you articulated both great key principles we will have to remind ourselves and numerous examples that are practical and will structure our day-to-day life in a fun way.  This discussion was well above our expectations and we are grateful you spent some time with us away from your family on a Saturday night.

We cannot stop singing your praises. Your words of wisdom seem to be so practical, so easy to implement and so extremely valuable. I am going to put together a little notebook based on the notes I took so that we can reference your words frequently and always have them available to us throughout the course of our marriage.

We would like to send every friend and family member to you. We feel extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to hear about your experiences and your profound conclusions on how to make a marriage successful because that is our number one priority. Our discussion in Bryant Park was not at all what we were expecting but it was exactly what we needed, it’s probably what every couple needs.  We will attempt to make your philosophy a daily part of our lives.

I just wanted to thank you again for the Pre-Cana course. Since that day, every time I’ve seen Michael, I’ve made a conscious effort to greet him joyfully, and he has done the same with me and it’s brilliant! We’re full steam ahead with the wedding preparations now and I often think about what we talked about on the Saturday we met you. Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we both really took it to heart!

I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for everything this past Saturday.  We learned so much from you and had such a fun time doing so.  I can’t believe Pre-Cana could be one of our favorite “date” nights.

I wanted to thank you for your time and advice, they were more precious than you can imagine. You helped us to open our eyes over things that were sitting between us creating bad communication and almost not allowing us to see how much we love each other. Also, I am reading the book you suggested and finding it so interesting!

We learned a lot we didn’t realize we needed to learn, and even though we’re very close already, we were talking about how we may have pre-empted a lot of issues that might have posed problems in the future. We’re already trying some of things we talked about and it’s been really interesting to be so much more conscientious about our relationship. We’ve actually been spreading the word to some of our co-workers and siblings re: Dr. Gottman’s book as well!

We wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed meeting with you.  To be quite honest, we had no idea what to expect from you or the process. But you placed us at ease immediately, and our meeting proved to be an extremely positive experience for us.  It certainly helped that you were able to bring so much of yourself and your own personal experiences to our discussions.

We truly enjoyed Pre-Cana which was something honestly we both were a little worried about! You made the experience very fun and actually very useful. I think even after eight years together it brought up topics we needed to speak about but you gave us some ideals and tools to better communicate them.

Thought you might like to know we successfully married on March 1st.  It was truly the best day of our lives.  We felt prepared, and ready for what was to come, and had an incredible time. We want to thank you for preparing us, and being part of our union.  We got so much out of Pre-Cana, and hope to continue to use your teachings to the best of our ability.  The exercises, and ideas got us through the two months we had to be apart.  We handled the distance better than we ever have.  This has all brought our relationship to a new level, and we are so happy.  Thank you for using your own relationship as an example.  It makes your lessons very honest.

I just wanted to send you a quick note and thank you for our wonderful meeting. I was very nervous about Pre-Cana, more so because of the “unknown,” but from the second we met you I knew it would be a great experience. I felt your honesty and desire to make our marriage a success was evident right away. You provided us with great insight to marriage, and we have already started to infuse the strategies you have suggested to us. We love the “Top the Dog” story, and have shared it with numerous friends and family.

What we loved so much about Pre-Cana was your willingness to get to know us as a couple and make the meeting personal. Thank you for making the experience special and informative all in one! Having shared our experience with family and friends, I have noticed that at the end of the conversation I always say, “I wish every couple had the opportunity to work with him.” Thank you for being such a special part of this journey!
