Description

Are you experiencing conflict in your relationship? Discover and integrate new methods of communication with relationship expert Dr. Warren Farrell, author of Women Can’t Hear What Men Don’t Say. In this transformative couples retreat, you will explore new ways of relaying and receiving your concerns with one another in a calm manner and how to sustain deep love and trust within a relationship.

 

Supported by expert guidance and the center’s serene environment, you as a couple (spouses, divorced parents, parent-child, siblings) will cultivate and adapt new methods of giving and receiving criticism in a loving and peaceful way to your partnership and your life. Learning new mindsets and strategies, you will discover new ways of thinking and behaving that make your relationship stronger.

In this transformative couples retreat, you will:

  • Cultivate strategies to help keep you conflict-free as a couple
  • Experience the development of new mindsets regarding criticism
  • Transform internal defensiveness into a feeling of being loved
  • Rejuvenate your relationship through improved communication
  • Learn new techniques for shifting negative feelings at home

You’ll leave with a sense of renewal and confidence with the tools to keep you balanced as a couple and in your daily life.

 

This retreat is appropriate for couples only – two people with a history who desire a future.
