What do you mean when you say CCC is for Committed Couples only?
Couples Coaching Couples is for healthy couples who are committed to growing and enriching their relationship and wish to do so in a community of like-minded couples.

• The couple loves and enjoys each other.
• They are committed to being happy and fulfilled together.
• They have a lifetime commitment and are able to speak that commitment.
• Each person has and expresses a desire to be in a couple with the other person.

What is a Quartet?
Your couple and the couple with whom you are paired for the quarter.
What is a Weekly Quartet Coaching Call?
Typically, once a week your quartet meets by phone or video conferencing (SKYPE, FACETIME, etc) for approximately 1 hour, spending half the time coaching and half the time being coached.
If it is convenient for the quartet, coaching may take place in person periodically. During these calls you agree to take actions related to your projects, to the distinctions of CCC, or to your homework and report on your results of the past week.
This coaching continues for about twelve weeks, until the end of the quarter.
What is The Declaration Process?
To begin coaching, your quartet (your couple and the couple with whom you are paired for the quarter) meets for two to three hours of focused time in which each couple creates their quarterly couple declaration, or vision statement. During the quarter, each Couple coaches the other couple in such a way that the couple sees itself as an entity and sees the power that can be derived from this type of coaching.
Then, with your coaches you design a structure to realize your declaration during the quarter. The structure might be a project or it may be working on the concepts or distinctions of CCC, or it may be through individualized homework given to your couple by your coaches. Finally, the couples in the quartet agree on the ground rules for the quarter (e.g., day and time of weekly calls or face-to-face meetings) and the quartet follows these basic promises and structures of CCC for the quarter.
What is The Completion Process?
Prior to the Quarterly Meeting of the Circle, the Quartet reviews the quarter to recognize concrete results and progress made in each couple relationship. Each couple prepares for this meeting by completing a form about their experience and sharing feedback with the other couple.
What is a Circle Quarterly Meeting?
This meeting is approximately 4 hours long. Quartets discuss the quarter, the growth in their couples, and complete the quarter with their quartet and the circle. This is also a time during which we discuss distinctions to expand our understanding of Couple, discuss coaching techniques, or participate in a coaching demonstration. We also create new quartet relationships for the next quarter.
What is a CCC Circle?
Couples Coaching Couples, Inc. is comprised of geographically located or virtual circles of anywhere between four couples and sixteen couples.
What is a CCC Virtual Circle?
A Virtual Circle is a circle of couples from various parts of the country (or globe) who meet quarterly via video conferencing for their Quarterly Meetings. Quartets do all their weekly calls via phone or video conferencing.
What does it cost to become a Member Couple?
It costs $160 per couple/per year. This is our CCC Annual Membership Dues.
What if I join CCC in the middle of the year?
CCC dues are pro-rated by quarter for the first year of membership.
What must we commit to in order to join?
Attend all Circle Quarterly Meetings with the other Couples in your Circle.
Be on a weekly call with your Quartet partners.
What is a CCC Distinction?
The distinctions are the “tools of the trade” in CCC. These concepts help us recognize, understand, and demonstrate the fundamental notion of Couple. This section is divided into Fundamental Distinctions, Additional Distinctions, and Veteran Distinctions.
There are five fundamental distinctions that form the core foundation of the tools and are inextricably linked one to the other. The five fundamental distinctions are: Couple, Couple Coaching, 100% + 100% = 100%, Couple Declaration, and Couple as Source.
It is recommended that new members getting started focus on reading the fundamental distinctions, talking about them together, and talking about them with other couples in CCC. A powerful way to have the distinctions available is to use them in your weekly coaching calls and in your daily life. These practices have you gain mastery as a couple.
