Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame. ~Henry David Thoreau
retreat designed by Owner Jolie Wilson & Beloved Ricky Barr
Most couples fall in love, some work their way into it, but at some point two people say "I love you and I want you in my life forever". Some say, "I can't imagine life without you", or "I feel like I've known your forever" and "When I'm with you I feel whole". This feeling of romantic bliss can last for three months, even a year, but at some point conflict sets in and there is a power struggle, a struggle to survive emotionally within your relationship. Communication becomes difficult if not impossible, there is a feeling of disconnection and partners ultimately fight or flee. This happens in almost all intimate relationships.
Through a retreat, couples begin to understand themselves and their partners, learning that the lens your partner looks through presents a very different view of the world than that of your lens. In an environment of safety and support couples learn new skills and gain useful tools to move back into connection and thereby experience abiding love. After all, romantic love is temporary, it is the glue that holds the relationship together while navigating the power struggle. The ultimate goal of intimate relationships is deep and abiding love, a soulful connection, and joy.

People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. ~Elizabeth Gilbert
Every relationship, especially romantic ones, require ongoing work. It’s so easy to get caught up in the daily grind and lose sight on not only yourself, but the needs of your partner. Whether you’ve agreed to become one in marriage or are on the path to holy matrimony, you know there’s effort required to keep you and yours going. This is where many couples should seek outside help in keeping their bonds strong and unbreakable.
A single weekend spent at a marriage or couples retreat cannot fix a broken relationship, so don’t think of it as your saving grace. Think of a couple’s retreat as a tool that acts as a good first step toward rebuilding some of the connection and trust that has been lost. Marriage/couple’s retreats force couples to interact and focus on the challenges they are facing together. This is often a step toward solving long-term problems and reconnecting as a couple. Here’s why you and yours should consider going on one: Never Underestimate Time Away A marriage/couple’s retreat is essentially a vacation. And when you’re on these retreats, you’re dedicating time to your partner to work on your marriage. Many marriages go from wedded bliss to dreaded unhappiness due to lack of attention and communication. When you make time to attend a marriage/couples retreat, you’re letting your spouse know that your marriage is important to you. And who doesn’t want to attend a retreat that provides uninterrupted time to get to know each other again and remember why you fell in love in the first place. Learn Important Relationship Skills Without The Junk Couples are sometimes reluctant to dive into delicate issues like money, sex, or parenting differences. During a retreat, you’ll most likely be given exercises to work as a couple and address these issues, which in turn will teach you important communication skills that will allow you to sort through the junk without the drama. You’ll also be given rules to follow to ensure that both parties get the chance to air their opinions. Many couples find it easier to address sensitive subjects during a couples retreat. Once all issues are addressed, the couple will feel more at ease, which eases the tension in the relationship. Find & Keep The Spark A marriage/couples retreat will give you and yours the opportunity to engage in activities and challenges that will help you work together and see new sides of each other that may have been ignored or overlooked before. These activities are specifically designed to be intense in nature in order to help you get to the root of the problems that are troubling your marriage. They will also help you discover strengths within yourself and your partner that you never knew existed. Engaging in these experiential activities will bring you together in a way you didn’t know was possible. Renews You As A Unit Difficulties in relationships are often the catalyst for couples to lose sight of themselves as a couple, which can cause each of them to address issues from a “me” perspective. A marriage/couple’s retreat reminds couples of their common goals and aspirations. This can help the couple to revert back to “we,” which creates unity. This will help them to tackle problems together in the future. When couples approach life as a unit, it helps to defuse arguments and can recreate the intimacy that their marriage may be lacking. Couples often find that they leave marriage retreats feeling more connected and having set aside many of their disputes. Professional Lessons Couples retreats are designed by people who not only have education about marriage and relationships, but these are people who also have years of experience in guidance and support. You can trust that you’re being coached by people who care about you and who understand the pain, heartache and hope you experience all at once in your relationships. These are the emotions that cloud our judgment and end up screwing up our relationships. Imagine having someone there to help you walk through these clouded emotions to meet your spouse on the other side where happiness is.
