Has this "Marriage Fitness Tele Boot Camp." 7 weeks, pretty comprehensive, price is right. Anyone have any experience with it?

I haven't done his Tele Boot Camp but have been receiving his newsletters. The only thing that bugs me about Mort is what I perceive as his extremely optimistic view of how fast a BS should recover. Maybe that's a reflection of just how good his program is but I suspect he's over-selling hope just a little bit.

Still, just reading Mort's newsletter served as a catalyst to a breakthrough in our reconciliation. I think I'm finally getting honest answers from my H and I've moved some of the heavier loads of reconciliation off my shoulders and on to my H's.

That didn't answer your question but it is a half-hearted recommendation of Mort.

We have done this - not the version where you have conference calls with him direct, just the disks.

It is okay - to me listening to it was slow and a bit boring - he is very monotone. There are some good tips and I felt it was more about saving peace than building back your relationship. Don't get me wrong, there are good ideas such as having touches throughout the day such as texts or phone calls, as well as being more affectionate towards each other, he also covers date night and why spending time is important. I don't know if it is anything anyone has not heard. We listened to the disks together and we picked up a few things. As long as you get one or two takeaways to improve something it is worth it is my feeling.
