“Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it. And then he feels that perhaps there isn’t.” – The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh

We have this eclectic approach that combines modern and traditional perspectives — only we keep bumping our heads on the stairs. We think there must be a better way to get from single to married, and maybe we could figure it out — if only we could stop bumping our heads for a moment.
Our goal in this seminar is to show you a better way.
