Couple Retreats

Cornelia logo3Whether you are married, engaged, beginning a new relationship, or in a committed partnership (gay or straight), you will learn how to become each other’s best friend, and how to create a relationship that is safe, passionate, and long lasting. This workshop teaches you skills not only for transforming your marriage/partnership, but also for creating stronger connections with your kids, extended family and colleagues. The more couples learn to apply these skills to all of their relationships, the more and easier it will be for our communities to become more vibrant, and more pulsating with life.

Whatever stage your relationship is in, the Couple Retreat will:

  • Help you and your partner re-establish real communication
  • Transform your frustrations into vehicles for change
  • Give you insight in where you get stuck as a couple in an effort to protect yourself
  • Help you to prioritize your relationship (especially when kids and work can be so demanding!)
  • Increase the love and passion in your relationship
  • Inspire you to experience the beauty of connection.

This workshop is designed to create a safe and comfortable environment for all participants. You will work alone or with your partner and will not be required to share anything with the rest of the group. Confidentiality is respected and preserved throughout the workshop.


Who Should Attend:

  • All couples, at all stages of their relationships, including:
  • Couples undecided about staying together
  • Couples moving toward divorce or who are already separated and want to know if it is worth putting any energy into saving the relationship
  • Couples in the early stages of a relationship and are looking at the possibility of marriage or a deeper commitment in their relationship
  • Couples preparing for marriage, or for persons who have been married before and wish to learn how to avoid repeating past mistakes
  • Couples who feel “stuck” or stagnant in their relationship and want to renew the intimacy with their partner
  • Couples who want to make a “good” relationship even richer and more fulfilling
  • Couples who wish to create a better climate for the development of their children
Give yourself the treat of tasting the sweetness of reconnecting with your partner, 
in a way that you dreamt about and wished for, 
but did not think possible.
