Practices for reconnection, inspiration and rejuvenation


If you’re in a committed relationship, you know the difficulty of successfully navigating the challenges of shared lives.

  • While we seek to foster strong, healthy, and mutually-supportive relationships, we become distracted by today’s hectic technological and media-driven world.
  • Important family and community networks are often geographically far-flung and leave couples less time and opportunity to establish practices for successfully moving through life’s changes “for better or worse, in sickness and in health.”


In this webinar, Dusty and Christine Staub will introduce well-tested practices that support couples through the rough patches.

Dusty and Christine recently celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary. They consider their marriage a “work in progress” and agree that they have learned the most from supporting each other through respective rough patches. They are the parents of three young adult children and have two precocious grandchildren. The Staubs are both initiated Sacred Fire Firekeepers and have been holding community fires since 2005. Hosted by Sacred Fire LifeWays Director Sherry Boatright, the session will feature an experiential exercise, discussion, and Q & A.

This is a no-fee event. Because donations make events like this and others possible, please consider making a contribution to honor the experience you will receive.
Registration is required.

This hour-long online program, a learning opportunity of its own, is also an introduction to the full Courage for Couples Weekend, tentatively set for mid-October 2021. Dusty and Christine will facilitate the full two-day immersive program at Deer Thicket Sanctuary, in Greensboro, North Carolina (USA).


  • Christine Staub

    Christine Staub, trained as a family physician, saw her practice evolve into a more integrative approach that attended to patients’ mental, emotional, and spiritual levels as well as physical. She closed her practice to focus her time and skills on a broader scale, particularly community building and sharing the importance of ancestral wisdom. She studied Plant Spirit Medicine with the late Eliot Cowan and helped organize and host the Sacred Fire Ancient Wisdom Rising series of events. Later, she wrote and co-edited the Heard Around the Fire newsletter and co-authored her first book, Cosmic Rhythms: A User’s Manual for Humans. As a wife, mother, grandmother and community leader, Christine is motivated by the nuances of heart-centered leadership and has been Dusty’s thought partner for 30 years. She is a Firekeeper in Greensboro, NC.
