David & Tracy Wikander, 541-360-0025,

​For 40 years, we have been on the lookout for couples who can help couples in the highest possible way. We look for how they work together, how long they've been together and, especially, how they love each other. Tracy and David Wikander are one such couple. Together for 23 years they walk their talk. Their wisdom, integrity and love are clearly felt.

Areas of exploration during our trainings:

  • ​Greater feelings of closeness, connection and intimacy
  • Practical communication skills and tools to easily integrate into your daily life
  • How to increase positivity in your relationship
  • Stepping out of the conflict wheel and into effective ways of communication
  • Healing old wounds, betrayal and trust issues
  • Projections, assumptions and roles
  • How to nurture romance and sexuality
  • Increasing the spark, fire, and fun

What to Expect in the Couples Only Training:

  • We interactively and experientially teach relationship concepts, tools and skills within a group exploration process.
  • Couples break-out into their personal couple dyad to practice tools and skills
  • The group debriefs and shares the learning/impact of the experience

               Group sharing is voluntary and privacy of couples experiences are respected

  • At times, couples will work with their non-partners to support and clarify concepts to assist in the relationship growth.

What to Expect in the Relationship Trainings (open to all):

  • The training flow is similar to the Couples Only Training above in that those that are attending as a couple will generally practice with their own partners. Individuals will practice with other individuals.
  • At times, couples will work with their non-partners to support and clarify concepts to assist in the relationship growth.

Our workshops and trainings are interactive dynamic experiences

where we practice learnings, tools and insights.

All of our trainings are open to all sexual and gender orientations.
