For Love and Logistics
A Couples Retreat
It seems like you have a meeting scheduled at work nearly every day if not multiple times a day. Meetings with titles like, “How to Be A More Effective Leader” or “How to Make Your Business more profitable. There are working lunch meetings, off sites for team building and the annual performance review. These meeting’s purpose is usually to ensure that each member of the team is working and performing to the best of their abilities so that the company can be as successful as possible.
Yet, consider this, do you hold meetings with your spouse to discuss the current state of your marriage?
A marriage is very much like a business. The problem is that the logistics usually win and your spouse has begun to feel more like a roommate. You have forgotten about the love, the intimacy, the connection, the fun and the romance that your marriage or relationship once had. You talk about the logistics at all times of the day; no time is sacred from the never ending to do list. The relationship becomes unfulfilling and your life begins to resemble Groundhog’s Day.
Prioritize your relationship!
What if, instead, you began to prioritize your time as a couple? What if you start to give your relationship as much time, energy and attention as you do to your job or business? Imagine creating meetings on your shared calendar where you scheduled time to connect with your partner daily, weekly, quarterly and annually. You would be putting logistics in a specific place while constructing rituals that build up the foundation of your relationship. Friendship, intimacy, fun, respect and appreciation will flourish in this environment. Managing conflict will feel less intense and challenging due to the increased connection and positive sentiment you have built. In this type of relationship you can again feel all the feelings you did the first time you kissed your spouse.
This retreat will help you to create new rituals while developing a plan for the future to ensure that you will stick with these new rituals. You will begin to focus again on dreaming, having fun together and embarking on new adventures. This retreat will help you move past the blocks that have stopped you from connecting with your partner. It is important to understand how each of you can become the best partner you can be. Why not do it while relaxing in one of the most beautiful places in the world? Make the commitment today to reap the relationship benefits!

So why a Retreat vs. weekly therapy sessions?
Weekly or bi-weekly therapy sessions are great to build rapport and develop and strengthen relations with each other. However, the opportunity to engage in a couples retreat and small group therapy without the weekly distractions of work, kids, outside activities, holidays and Summer vacations allows for deeper connections and quicker progress. Focusing on each other exclusively; creating a plan that is realistic for boosting the relationship can help to develop even greater satisfaction and deeper connection. Plus, Hawaii in February, yes please!
