Couplehood: A New Way to Love Couples Retreat
I believe there are no coincidences, and the fact that you are reading these words you have been led here by a stirring in your soul. Every moment of your life is an opportunity to choose to live more fully heart centered or to hold back. What could you have more of in your life if you opened to love more deeply? Who would you be if you really faced the fears that keep you closed?
This personalized couples retreat is completely geared toward a unique path of spiritual self-realization through your relationship. See If you can relate to any of these statements:
Do you feel you partner has changed and you have 'lost that loving feeling'?
Are there long standing resentments that you aren't sure you can forgive?
Do the things you had you originally fall in love with in your partner now cause you annoyance?
This program helps you learn the skills necessary to realize your relationship potential. We invite you into the perspective of considering what your relationship needs from you as an individual rather than what you need from your relationships. This is a quantum leap in viewing conscious loving relationships. The person you attract to you in a relationship shows you aspects of yourself that you most need to heal, love, make peace with, integrate or embrace. This is a blessing if you are open to it.
You attract to you partners that are your perfect teachers for what you most need at that time.
The person you attract is your mirror showing you where you are at within your own consciousness.
Do you like what you see?
If not, rather than focusing on trying to change someone outside yourself, change yourself from the inside out. Relationships aren't always easy since they force you to face yourself. But the rewards are great. Love will bring up whatever is unresolved in order to be healed. So when issues come up in your relationships, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's an opportunity showing you where your growth and potential for healing lies.
So remember the real purpose of relationship is to facilitate your soul's evolution and healing.
Included in the retreat are two participant manuals and a DVD that will help couples:
- Learn a new way to talk and a new way to listen.
- Co-create a relationship vision.
- Acquire the skills to manifest this vision.
- Discover the uniqueness of one's partner.
- Uncover the opportunities for emotional healing and personal growth.
What is the couples work based upon?
It is a combination of different teachings, the work of Dr. Harville Hendrix Imago and the book "Getting the Love You Want," Jungian Shadow work, Psychosythesis, & Transpersonal Psychology, and the work of Gay & Kathleen Hendricks and their book, "Conscious Loving."

3 day, or 5 day
Can I do this program on my own, without my partner?
This is a 'couples only' retreat.
My partner and I are going through a difficult time. Is this program appropriate for us?
Yes absolutely! This program will help couples in all stages of their relationship, it is an educational program and not meant to replace therapy. If you and your partner are experiencing difficulties in your relationship, the program can offer some insight into your relationship and support you to make a shift if you are COMMITTED to making the relationship work! This workshop will reveal if either couple isn't COMMITTED. How it reveals that, is by the amount of effort and participation each individual is willing to put forth.
My partner and I are considering getting married. Is this program appropriate for us?
Absolutely! The program is geared for couples in all stages and can help couples build a strong foundation for their relationship.
Imagine a whole weekend of conversations with your partner...
about the things you have been longing to connect around. Safe, connecting and supportive conversations which bring back love and tenderness.
If you are ready to feel all the feelings you have been longing to feel in your relationship this is the workshop for YOU!
For one human being to love another human being; that is perhaps the most difficult task that has been entrusted to us, the ultimate task, the final test and proof, the work for which all other work is merely preparation.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
