Our Lived Experience of Love: Imago (the patterns that form our expectations of relationships)

Getting The Love You Want Relationship Workshops 2023-2024 Calendar

When & Where


"We had the best experience with Michelle Bohls’ IMAGO class online. It was the best of both worlds for us. We had the connection and fun of learning with the group in the Zoom class, but more importantly we had the security of home for the break out couples sessions. It was the safety of home that I really appreciated, knowing that no one else could overhear our private conversations allowed us to be more vulnerable and experience a deeper intimacy in sharing our emotions. My fiancé was reluctant when we first started the class, but by the end he was really grateful we did it. It gave us so many useful tools in communication. We loved it so much that we now want our adult children to do it with their significant others." – J.L.

"I have taken many online courses over the years, and I've taught several as well. None of them were as well executed or insightful as Michelle's course. She skillfully engages her audience so that it feels like a real classroom. Instead of the typical zoom set-up where the learner is passive, Michelle uses her time to encourage students to engage, practice, and do hands-on learning. My partner and I learned so much about each other, and ourselves – all while having a lot of fun!" – R.
