Welcome

We’re so glad you found us! 
Your retreat begins when you fill out the information at the bottom of this page and we schedule a consultation call. From there, we will build your retreat specifically for you both so you get the maximum benefit. All retreats include a pre-retreat zoom call to get a jumpstart on planning for your visit. 
 
Retreats are a gift to your relationship. You’ll get a generous amount of support from us so you can repair what’s not working, reconnect to each other, communicate effectively, resolve conflict, begin to heal trust, increase romance and playful intimacy and feel supported by a loving couple who model growth and transformation in partnership. 

Premarital Retreat option

 You’re in love! You are within the first 3 years of your relationship and you want to make sure you have a solid foundation for your future together. Premarital Retreats are a great way to dive deep in your strengths as a couple and to discuss the harder subjects of life and stay connected while doing it. Moreover, you’ll have a loving couple in us to reflect back and support your union as you move forward in your lives. Every couple could benefit with a mentor couple like us in your life when or if you need support in the coming years.

We invite you to...

Renew your commitment to the relationship.

Redesign the way you communicate so you both feel heard.

Restore your unique connection and original spark.

Release stress and uncertainty so you can enjoy each other.

Redefine your relationship and focus your energy there.
