Durham, NC

Marsha and Mike have been creating safe, sacred spaces for couples for over 30 years. Their call arose from the recognition that in their mid-30s their different careers and the raising of their 3 children could leave them as strangers. In search of finding a common cause, they were gifted with Friends Couple Enrichment, an organization grounded in Quaker faith and practice. Witnessed Couple Dialogue has become their relationship yoga practice. Regular practice occurs in the monthly growth groups they belong to, with their community of leader couples across the country, on their walks, and in their hot tub. They love to share this practice with whomever and wherever the opportunity arises. This is their vocation, grounded in their Quaker faith and practice of peace-making, equality, integrity, and community. They live in Durham, NC.
