Secrets of a Soulful Marriage Retreat

Workshop ID: G14S341X
Dates: March 28, 2014 - March 30, 2014 Price: $300


Life can get so busy that you may lose track of what is really important. You may pass each other in the daily rounds, asleep in the “mansion” that you inhabit, with all its glorious, spacious rooms to explore. Give yourself and your partner the gift of a weekend devoted to celebrating and enhancing your relationship. Take a guided tour of your palace of possibilities as a soulful couple. Affirm the strengths and beauty of your unique relationship. Express your secrets of what you love and appreciate about each other. Take home tools to improve your communication and your ability to resolve conflicts. To take this journey to new dimensions of your marriage, prepare a “backpack of supplies: ”

  • a willing heart
  • an open mind and eagerness to learn
  • patience to persevere through rough terrain
  • a sense of direction and purpose
  • a journal to record progress and milestones along the way
  • gratitude for taking the journey with your partner

Learn the “secrets of a soulful marriage.” Create and sustain a sacred, loving relationship with your sweetheart.
The retreat begins Friday at dinner and lasts through Sunday lunch.
This workshop is $300 PER COUPLE plus 2 nights lodging & meals.
