24+ Matching Support Workshop for 2nd+ gen. and parents, 25th – 27th November 2022:
Last month BFD-EUME organized a Matching Support workshop for 2nd+gen candidates of at least 24 years of age and their parents. The workshop was held in Neumühle, Bad Camberg and had around 35 participants from various countries in our region and even beyond. Through Zoom we could also have live talks from speakers who couldn’t travel to the workshop.
For October, we invited Maarten and Myra Meijer all the way from Korea and they joined us in the early morning! We in particularly loved the emphasis on being purposeful in letting our spouse know what we love about them and our marriage, as well as how turning TOWARDS our partner in response to one of their “bids” is a precious chance for connection. If you missed the meeting, this is for you!
MMM Summit on “Effective Roads to Healing”. We invited three experts in the field of Healing, and they introduced different methods of healing. We hope that you can find something to apply in your own lives!
For this month, we invited David and Mitsue and they talked about “Intimacy”. It was very nice that they shared with us how they tackled this sensitive topic. We hope that this can help us take a step forward towards a happier and more fulfilling couple relationship.
Our 2nd meeting in May, we invited Myrna Lapres, and as always, we had an interesting and very helpful talk. We really liked many of her tips including: being honest with ourselves, forgiving ourselves and loving our family members without judgment. If you missed it, check this out!
For this time, we invited Andrew and Uyanga Love and talked about “How we overcame postpartum depression together”. We hope this topic is helpful for you if you have or ever had a similar experience. For those who missed the meeting or whoever want to see it again, here is the recording!
