A typical marriage retreat consists of five to ten couples. Each has specific issues, varying amounts of time they have been together, and interesting dynamics. While this may all be entertaining, it will not come anywhere near resolving problems and help people reconnect in meaningful and lasting ways. General information aimed at a group of people will only skim the surface of troubles communicating, resolving problems, and becoming closer.
After the weekend the trip home is spent comparing the marriage to all the other ones on display. Another possibility is traveling in silence as each person prepares to go back to every day life, the kids, and the stresses at work. The situation may improve slightly, but the problems will resonate because they were never properly addressed.
A Retreat for Two
Instead of spending time and money on an ordinary retreat, invest in an exclusive retreat and get to the root cause of specific issues, problems, and concerns. During the process the focus is on repairing the relationship, reducing anger, and renewing closeness. Couples will learn proven techniques to communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, and reconnect with each other. This approach has a long-lasting effect that will genuinely improve your marriage, not ten marriages.
The backdrop for this innovative approach to a retreat is the beautiful mountains of Colorado in the Denver area. Lodging is available in local hotels and evenings are free to enjoy the plethora of restaurants, attractions, and activities the area has to offer. Reap the benefits of a renown therapist with forty years of experience by day and enjoy the variety of opportunities the area has by night.
Couples who are not sure if a retreat is right for them can call and speak to the therapist free of charge during a telephone consultation. Ask questions, explain how you are feeling, and discover how an exclusive retreat can help. One benefit of this approach is fast results compared to other retreats and even weekly therapy sessions. Spend three to four days of intensive therapy and honest communication rather than rehashing the same issues every week. That leaves more time to be happy and healthy for years to come.
