Marriage Encounter is founded by a Spanish priest GABRIEL CALVO in 1958 to help married couples to communicate more intimately with one another, to deepen and enrich their relationship. To date, the ME movement has spread all over the world.
What is CCMEA Marriage Encounter Workshop?
This ME Workshop is organized by CCMEA and is conducted in Cantonese, of which we share similar family values and culture. ME Workshop provides a private and comfortable environment allowing couple who are willing to enrich their couples relationship, to explore a new way to rejuvenate their marriage.
The Marriage Encounter Workshop is held over a long weekend. During this weekend, couples will be away from the distractions of their everyday life, have some private time with their spouse to learn a love-based communication technique and appreciation of each other, and rediscover the hopes and dreams of their marriage. The workshop is not based on listening to lectures nor does it provide counseling sessions. A team of trained volunteer couples will share their own real life experiences. The purpose of each sharing is to inspire couples to examine themselves, their behaviours and attitudes, and rediscover their own feelings about various aspects of their marriage.
The ME weekend is presided by a Catholic priest, however, couples with different or no religions are welcome to attend.
After attending the ME Workshop, participating couples become members of CCMEA. CCMEA provides a variety of activities and workshops to maintain ongoing contact and continuity, to support each other and to renew the incentive to maintain a loving marriage.
