Forty nine years ago, Yumi and I were on our honeymoon in Hong Kong. Here we are, a young couple, full of bliss for our future together.
Forty nine years later, we are being invited to come back to Hong Kong to present our exciting work with couples.
Chin Teik, the CEO of an organizational development consultancy firm in Hong Kong, is organizing our Adventure in Intimacy workshop there, following he and his wife Swee having attended an Adventure In Intimacy workshop that we presented in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, several years ago.
The following is part of an invitation that he just sent out to his community, which we want to share with you.
Swee and I thank you for supporting this project of ours with your agreement to attend the couples workshop we are organizing. We have been touched by Hedy and Yumi and we want to share them with you, as well as with other couples in Hong Kong.
We feel that an investment in communication between couples is equally as important as doing health checks, or exercising, or getting enough sleep, or developing oneself for a career. We are often so busy in our day to day living, that after marriage we tend to make assumptions, and overlook the continued investment in the quality of the communication. It does not matter whether you are about to be married, or have been married for 1 year or 30 years or 40 years; we can always do better. When you divide the cost of this investment over 10, 20 or 30 years, you will see that the investment is miniscule compared to the richness and quality of the inter-relationship.
How do we honor each other? How do we truly listen to understand, when our baggage and emotions block how we listen? How do we have someone feel that they have been truly understood? It is easier said than done. We find that Hedy and Yumi have so many incredible life experiences to share with their methodology. We all can relate to their stories and life experiences. Hedy’s energy is intoxicating, and keeps the energy high throughout the day.
While this workshop is definitely for young couples who are about to commit their lives together, it is also for couples who have been married for years, and want to re-discover the spirit of marriage. And it is also of great help to couples who are struggling with their relationship.
Swee and I said that we wish we had learned all the principles that Hedy and Yumi teach before we were married.
It is hardly believable that the young, innocent, unconscious couple that you see in the photograph, traveling to Hong Kong 49 years ago, has grown into a couple teaching other couples. We feel so very honored and privileged.
And so Hong Kong….here we come again! And this time we travel as an experienced, wiser, solid and creative couple.
With love and gratitude,
Hedy and Yumi
