    It was a fun to share communication tools for supporting relationships whether they are going through transition or stable. Suggestions of tools that worked ranged from, blame-it-on-the-scapecat to the "Do Over", a technique that is helpful when a conversation or situation goes in an undesirable direction. Let's try that again from the top.

    Space is cozy, so if you end up changing your RSVP please post here so that others can attend. Last months discussion was very rich and we will continue to build. Bring your questions, celebrations and curiosity.
