Imagine your relationship expressing the true depths of your love and commitment. If you’re in love, this retreat is an opportunity to rise even higher in love. If you’re facing challenges, this retreat is an opportunity for healing on a profound level. You’ll learn tools for deeper appreciation, healthy communication of feelings, the effects of using your partner as a mirror – working with positive as well as negative projections – understanding and respecting each other’s differences, resolving conflicts, apologizing (making amends), sharing sexual wellness and happiness, and developing a true inner connection with your partner. You’ll learn a creative process to allow past hurts to heal, conflicts to be resolved, and trust to grow. There will be exercises and practices for couples to do with each other, and the weekend will be enhanced with original music by Scott Kalechstein.
