What We Do
Mindful Marriage – a marriage education program developed by Maxcia Lizarraga, M.S., M.Ed. The model's primary aim is to promote authenticity and connectedness in marriages. The spiritually-based model casts a wide net, offering guidance through the fundamental teachings of many spiritual belief systems. Through personal reflection and soul-inspired change, the marriage is nurtured by each individual to achieve a spiritualized and wholehearted connection.
Maxcia's method focuses on developing strategies and skills designed to strengthen personal virtues and foster unity. Focusing on strengths rather than weaknesses, she uses a framework for change that supports personal accountability through the ‘knowledge, reflection and action’ process, thereby enhancing growth and transformation. She believes that every marriage provides an opportunity to develop a higher level of awareness and understanding about who we are and how we want to live. A value system plays a role in this process. How we identify, communicate and integrate these values into our marriage often determines the contentment and joy we experience.
Mindful Marriage creates the space to develop an action plan and strategies for the marriage and encourages the couple through their individual process.
