A Memorable Weekend
The three day weekend escape on the west coast of Florida near Fort Myers proved to be an idyllic environment to reconnect with new and old friends, reignite our bonds as couples and look into our spouse’s eyes with a refreshed heart.
Through a series of interactive presentations, exercises, couple time, and break-out sessions, participants gained tools and tips to relate in a fresh way, improve communication, reflect on marriage as a spiritual path and enhance their emotional attunement to one another.
On Saturday, educational sessions included “Key to a Strong Marriage,” and “Improve Your Relationship without Talking about It,” featuring different exercises for spouses to learn about themselves and each other. After lunch, couples took advantage of biking, swimming, volleyball, walking along the beach, sea kayaking and relaxing in their well furnished suites.
Lovemaking was the focus of Saturday afternoon, with informational talks on "Sex, Health and Happiness," fun activities and discussion groups. Following a festive dinner, couples dressed up for a Date Night, enjoyed fancy desserts, danced to lively music, posed for funny portraits, and made new friends.
Sunday opened with morning inspiration, followed by optional breakouts on a variety of topics: “Fun & Friendship,” “Romance in Real Life,” “The Art of Kissing,” “Bodily Approaches to Anger Release,” “Relationship Bank: Love Currencies that Work,” and “Improving Your Relationship By Yourself.”
The retreat wrapped up with letter writing, raffles, reflections and our group photo. Please join us at one of our events and reserve your spot soon!
