The Relationshift® is created by us, Andrea Davina (43) and Roel Elshout (44). We are in a relationship for over 9 years and have 2 children Daan (8) and Anna (5). In the beginning of our relationship, we decided to have an annual “evaluation” of our time together. A moment to reflect on the previous year and make sure that we were still on the same page. We would go out for a romantic date and make time for each other to express our feelings and believes concerning our relationship. We also used this moment to “commit” ourselves for another year and set mutual goals on both personal as well as family level. While doing this for several years, we realized that this was such a powerful ritual but that we could use a little guidance in how to make this an even more meaningful event.
So we started to ask ourselves some questions trying to find out how to move forward in our relationship. We were in a happy relationship but felt it would be helpful to get some pointers in order to stir the passion and reinforce the connection. We were surprised to find out that we could get help for so many things in life but when it came to our relationship we had a very limited set of tools to work with. Why wasn’t there something that could help us work on our relationship while taking into consideration that there wasn’t a direct crisis, we would like to focus on the positive elements in our relationship and we could do it at a time and any place that suited us.
This is when the idea for The Relationshift® was born: a practical online program for couples with a positive focus on their relationship under the guidance of experts. We are privileged that we had the opportunity to work with such a passionate team that has created this 21-day program. The program is a modern way of finding out what the common ground is the two of you stand on. Something for people who don’t take their relationship for granted but also have limited time due to their jobs, social life and possibly kids. Couples who are in a relationship where things are going pretty well but where there is room for more fun, connection and intimacy.
Currently we give workshops and have developed our new 21 day program “The Meditationshift” which is available on request. Feel free to contact get in contact in case you would like to know more about us.
