Couple’s Retreats

We take ourselves, both the beauty and the brokenness, with us into every relationship.  A life long commitment to have and to hold, to love and to cherish another does not come without experiencing moments of disconnection and hurt. Whether you are newly married or have been dancing through life together for many years, it is common for couple’s to experience moments of disconnection. What if you were able to make sense of this disconnected cycle and make space to learn new ways of seeing your relationship through the lens of attachment while journeying together to foster a more secure bond?  

Join us for a 1.5 day experiential and faith based marriage retreat (Friday evening 6:00pm-8:30pm & Saturday 9am-5pm, lodging is not included) for you and your spouse, where relationship specialist Sharon Hicks, LPCC will guide a small group of couples through research proven methods of identifying and de-coding negative communication patterns in which couples can often become stuck, help couples learn how to interpret bids for connection, and invite couples to take time in private guided conversations to foster lifelong, meaningful connection.  You can expect to walk away from the retreat with new insight and tools to continue these conversations as you strengthen your connection with your sweetheart.  It is possible to strengthen your bond and learn new ways of seeing and being with eachother as you learn new moves in your relationship dance!

 Retreat package includes: 

  • Light snacks and beverages throughout retreat
  • Breakfast and lunch on Saturday of retreat
  • Notebook and relationship toolbox
  • Door prizes!

What past participants are saying:

“Thanks for holding space for us to learn and grown this weekend!  I would recommend this retreat to any couple at any stage in their relationship! Super insightful and truly life changing.”

“This retreat was unlike any other marriage retreat we have attended in the past and we valued the time we got to spend together in private conversations while enjoying the benefit of learning alongside other couples.” 

“I appreciated the combo of group discussion, teaching, and one on one time with my spouse. It helped us tackle big things in a safe space with useful tools.”
