We are excited to have a presentation on Iceberg Conversations by Susie and Russ Smidt, from Faithful and True, starting at 9:45 am on Saturday.
Susie shared this description of their presentation:
“We will be presenting a tool called Iceberg Conversations. This tool facilitates getting to deeper levels of communication with the goal of really hearing one another and feeling heard by our partner. So often we get stuck in well-established patterns of talking that don’t work and leave us feeling frustrated and misunderstood. Time will be spent teaching the tool and coaching you as you begin to practice using it.”
Susie also shared a little personal background about the two of them:
“We have been on a healing and learning journey together since 2001 when Russ disclosed his sexual addiction. In addition to dealing with issues related to the sexual addiction both as individuals and as a couple, Susie is a survivor of sexual abuse and has done work to heal in that area as well. We come offering you this tool that was taught to us and that we continue to work to put into practice in our relationship. We hope it will bless you in similar ways that it has blessed us.“
The Owatonna RCA Group sincerely hopes that you can join us for this weekend of learning and growth, and enjoy the Minnesota fall colors at this wooded lakeside retreat center.
