Today we’d like to introduce you to Shlomo Slatkin.
Hi Shlomo, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
After my wife and I had our first child, our relationship tension had reached a point where we needed to get help. I was in school at the time getting my Master’s in Counseling Psychology. We were referred to an Imago Relationship Therapist and it changed our marriage forever. We rediscovered our connection, learned how to really listen and understand each other, and picked up tools that we could instantly apply. We had hope again for a future together and I decided to get the clinical training to become an Imago Therapist. Fast forward 18 years, I operate The Marriage Restoration Project, and organization devoted to helping couples and families stay together and be happy. Through private two days retreats and group workshops, we help couples worldwide achieve the relationship that they’ve always wanted.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
The helping profession can be a challenge as I am listening to couple’s struggles. Many have very sad stories, so it takes a lot of energy and patience. There is also the challenge of the time spent promoting a business when my primary goal is to help people. I often have to spend time doing things I don’t necessarily enjoy in order to be able to reach more people. The reward is worth it. Seeing couples happy and transformed before my very eyes makes any struggle along the way totally worth it.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about The Marriage Restoration Project?
We offer in-person and online two days private Marriage Retreats as well as two days group workshops for couples. We also have an online Marriage School course, no blame, no shame, communication training. While most marriage counseling is 50 minutes per week, we find that it is not enough time to go deep enough to make real progress. For couples in limbo or in pain they need a quick intervention to provide them hope and skills. The follow-up afterwards becomes much easier. We can achieve in 2 days what may take over six months in regular counseling to achieve. That’s why our practice is exclusively geared towards intensive retreats.
So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
They can participate in our private or group retreats, our online course, read our blog, or listen to our podcast.
