  • Hello Adventurer!

    ...and welcome to the journey! We're delighted to have you here to help us fulfill our mission and purpose...""to light up the world with love...one heart, one family at a time"!

     

    There's a lot of chaos and concern for our world today, and we believe that change starts first within and then with those closest to us. And it's easier to "Be the change you want to see in the world" when you do it together...in your family or with a global family.

     

    We believe that it's time for a new paradigm shift...one that lights up our hearts with possibilities, even when there's a lot of negativity in the world. And so we offer you the opportunity to see this wonderful, crazy, ever-changing life as an "adventure".

    As an adventurer in search of a new world, what do you seek? What do you hope to find? What skills can you use to help navigate the rough seas of life? Who are your allies on this quest? What "boon", elixir or healing will you bring back to our world?

     

    And since this is an adventure, we are exploring along the way too. So thank you for helping us co-create a new world.

  • How our adventure began...

    We started off our own extraordinary marriage with an unusual courtship and engagement. After meeting in the US and knowing each other for only 8 days, we decided to get married and create a new life together in Taiwan. Our 9-month long-distance courtship was aided, luckily, by attending a pre-marital workshop (Rhett in person, Aurora on-line) and creating a Marriage Document (an intentional plan for our marriage). This valuable tool became the Playbook for our marriage, helping to create a solid foundation for the years ahead and is the inspiration for our work with couples and families today.

  • The birth of a new vision of relationships

    Our 40-day travel odyssey that inspired this movement

    After living in China for almost 10 years, we returned to Florida in Summer 2014 with our children. We went from living in a city of Shanghai with over 28 million people to a quaint neighborhood near the beach community in Jacksonville, Florida. But for some reason, the "bigness" of everything in the US seemed to make us feel more separate than we ever did in a crowded city with millions of people. Plus the tighter restrictions in China kept all of us from being online all the time. After 3 years in the US, we needed something to bring us back together and to the closeness we felt living in our "protected bubble" in Shanghai.

     

    Thus, in the summer of 2017 we decided to embark on a good old- fashioned "road trip" with our kids. This trip brought us closer together, and closer to nature as we saw and explored some of America's most beautiful places...the Badlands of South Dakota, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone Park, the Big Horn Mountains, the Grand Tetons, Las Vegas, the coast and wine valleys of California, the sequoias of Yosemite and the redwoods of Muir Woods, the immense beauty of Oregon and Mount Hood, and the delightful city of Portland.

     

    We also purposely designed the trip to be one of "shrinking spaces" literally! We started in a 30 foot RV from Chicago to LA, travelled California in a JUCY campervan, took a train to Oregon, and then explored Oregon in an SUV and tent.

     

    In planes, trains, and a variety of automobiles, we deepened our relationship to nature and received "lessons from the land". And as our physical space shrunk with every mile, we became a tighter, more connected and resourceful family.

     

    We discovered the "sacred spaces" that we create with one another, and how to nurture and grow that daily. And we created a blog, "Sacred Spaces", as a way to capture both "Lessons from the Land" and "Relationship Tips" to share with others, and as a reminder for ourselves to live and embody our personal family mission to "Live, Love, Laugh, Learn, Leave a Legacy!"

    "And as our physical space shrunk with every mile, we became a tighter, more connected and resourceful family."

  • What The Adventure Taught Us...

    Family is FUNdamental.

    The family unit is the perfect space to teach, model and build successful relationship skills... and it can be fun too!

     

    Relationship skills can be learned.

    In so many areas of life, we are trained to be successful, yet a key area to living a fulfilling life is neglected...relationships. We either do not learn relationship skills or we copy what we learned as children. Often neither lead to successful relationship building.

     

    Sacred spaces can be created, even in everyday life.

    Feeling more connected, supported and love doesn't require physically "shrinking spaces". We can do it anytime when we have the conscious intent and rituals and practices to drop into how we choose to relate to one another.

     

    Creating a more loving world, starts in our hearts and in our homes.

    Our grand vision is to light up the world with love, one heart and one family at a time. And it all starts with you and your commitment to seeing relationships as sacred, Sacred, means something "valuable", something worthy of devotion of time and energy. Imagine a world where we all held our relationships as sacred!

  • Official Bio

    Aurora and Rhett Farber, started off their own extraordinary marriage with an unusual courtship and engagement. After meeting in the US and knowing each other for only 8 days, they decided to get married and create a new life together in Taiwan. Their 9 -month long-distance courtship was aided, luckily, by attending a pre-marital workshop (Rhett in person, Aurora on-line) and creating a Marriage Document (an intentional plan for their marriage). This valuable tool became the Playbook for their marriage, helping to create a solid foundation for the years ahead and inspired their work with couples and families today.

     

    To celebrate their first anniversary, they enrolled in one of the top Relationship Education courses in the US, PAIRS (Practical Application of Intimate Relationship Skills, www.pairs.org). Inspired by the idea that skills and strategies can be learned to create extraordinary relationships for everyone, they created their own company, The Extraordinary Family Adventure, whose mission is to “light up the world with love… one heart, one family at a time”.

     

    Together Aurora and Rhett have been featured speakers and offered relationship workshops to groups around the world, such as The Satir Centre of Hong Kong, The Ministry of Women & Family in Malaysia, The Community Center of Taipei, Family Guru in Shanghai, Shanghai United International School, Smart Marriages, Daniel Memorial, various non-profit organizations, churches, and community centers in the US.

     

    In addition, Aurora is a Transformational Coach specializing in Feminine Leadership and Women’s Empowerment. Through private coaching, online programs, women circles and retreats, Aurora creates “sacred spaces” for women to be held, witnessed and loved exactly as they are right here, right now. She is also a co-author of The New Feminine Evolutionary: Embody Presence, Be The Change, “a groundbreaking book: revealing in total for the first time the deep essences that run throughout this movement of women who are changing the world.” For more information, visit www.aurorafarber.com 

     

    Rhett, a Corporate Trainer & Facilitator, has worked with 100‘s of multinational companies over the past 20+ years. He has designed and delivered team and leadership programs for global schools, organizations and corporations such as Harvard University, China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Adidas, Caterpillar, Coca-Cola, Chanel, Dell, Dupont, General Electric, General Motors, Met Life, Microsoft, Oracle, PepsiCo, Pfizer, Starbucks, and Volkswagon.

    After living in Shanghai (China) for almost a decade, Aurora and Rhett decided to repatriate back to northeast Florida in Summer 2014.

     

    They continue to offer workshops on relationship education, family fundamentals, team and leadership programs. They have 2 wonderful children ages 10 and 14, and this year (September 2018) they will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.
