The Path To FulFillment

Couples Retreat

Retreats have been found to be the most effective way to heal and restore a couple’s marriage. Many couples who attend retreats are hurting, discouraged and have lost hope. Retreats are specifically designed for couples in crisis to rebuild trust and restore their love for one another.

We provide a safe, accepting and nurturing space to begin the work of identifying root causes of your marital distress. We assess the dynamics and issues and develop a comprehensive plan for each of you as individuals and as a couple. You will learn how to deepen your connection, increase communication through empathy and listening, and understand and value your differences. You will also learn to resolve conflicts, restore trust, change dynamics and patterns, reduce blame, and move through impasses and gridlocks.
