Think positive thoughts

When your partner points something out or offers a gesture of affection, they’re making a bid for emotional connection.

Turning towards these bids, even in tiny ways, helps to foster closeness in your relationship.

However, the research shows that thinking negative thoughts about your partner can get in the way of recognizing and responding to their bids, which can create emotional distance over time.

If you think positive thoughts about your partner, even when you’re apart, you’ll recognize and respond to more of their bids when you’re together.

This will build a solid foundation of trust and commitment in your marriage.

What does Koru mean?

KORU (kor-roo) is the Maori word for “loop.” For the indigenous people of New Zealand, the koru spiral represents a fern frond beginning to unfurl. The koru symbol embodies new beginnings, a new phase of life, renewal, hope for the future, positive change, personal growth, working in harmony, bringing people together, and being mindful of the good things in life.

At Koru Ceremony, we strive to personify these ideals and celebrate a new beginning through ceremony and ritual.
