With Beth Falch-Nielsen and Richard Klein & Yogita Bouchard

August 26 - 30, 2020

This means  communicating clearly, recognizing and moving toward what creates connection, and learning how to turn toward difficulty when it arises, so that patterns that create conflict become opportunities for growth and change.

Using mindfulness and experiential exercises, this workshop will teach the skills needed to sustain an alive, healthy, and mutually rewarding relationship over time.

 Couples can often find themselves “stuck” – in relationships that have become too busy, too painful, or just too flat and empty. The habitual ways of trying to get out of these stuck places often end up reinforcing dysfunction and disagreement. Leading to more pain, anger and despair. Our Couples Retreat is about learning to do something different, that means  learning to use new tools and shift perspectives.

Practicing new skills, spending time in a suportive environment and reconnecting to what is really important can change relationships profoundly. Whether you are in crisis, feeling stuck,  or wanting to enrich what you already have, this workshop will give you a deeper understanding of relationship dynamics and effective tools to allow you to create the alive and loving relationship you want.

This years retreat will bring rich learning as we work together to unpack the hot-button issues that can arise around men’s and women’s often differing approaches to sexuality and intimacy. In addition, we will explore the power dynamics of how decisions come to be made in relationship. Working with  new models that invite you to find win/win solutions that don’t involve compromising what is truely important to either one of you.

This workshop will:
1. Offer  you experiential exercises that will give you concrete skills to take home. It is an opportunity to stop doing what isn’t working, and to start doing something that will.
2. Provide an opportunity to have a different experience – to re-connect, to shift attitudes, and to learn how to nourish and care for your relationship.
3. Help you, if you are in crisis and trying to make a decision about the life of your relationship, by assisting you to connect to a deeper, wiser, and less reactive part of yourself to make a decision from.

For those of you who have done a couples retreat with us before,  we are focusing the skills you learned in some new areas,  so this will be a different experience than you had before.  Morever, there can be deepening of those skills, serving an expanded connection.

For Nelson area residents who wish to attend this retreat, commuters  pricing is available. Please enquire for details.
