Couples’ Retreat Agenda

This weekend is composed of a carefully constructed blend of educational lectures, group discussions, self-exploration and writing work.

You will learn new skills – effective ways to communicate that will allow you to truly listen and gain a new understanding of each other with compassion. You will be able to change negative patterns, moving away from conflict to appreciation thus enhancing the safety and connection.  Having achieved this, the passion and pleasure is renewed in your relationship.

The format:

A significant portion of the workshop is spent privately practicing these new tools with your partner. While you are invited to share your insights and experiences within the larger group, all such sharing is optional. The weekend is composed of:

  • Short lectures about the dynamics of intimate relationships
  • Individual reflection and writing
  • Demonstrations of new communication skills and time to privately practice these new tools with your partner
