Shannon here and I am VERY excited to tell you that our local couples' retreat is going to be really lovely! Let me know you are interested so we can settle on dates with the venue.
Staycation Couples One Day is a day with several other couples and me at 12 noon starting with lunch together onsite at a beautiful Air BNB deluxe home, enjoying demos and practice of better marriage tools that come with take home how-to guides, and cue cards, a gf, vegan cake break at 3, more demos and practice of savvy conflict skills, then topping it off with putting new skills into action while having fun together at about 5:30. Having fun increases safety in relationships, moving you from a source of fight or flight trigger to a person of safety and renewal. We end the day with Q & A and ideas for getting all the new love habits in motion at home.
The One Day ends after our game and gives couples a chance to either return home or have their own date night out with their own plans before heading home. A room may be open just for out of town guests who are able to upgrade from One Day to One Day Plus Stay Overnight. Several walkable options are within reach for dinner, movies, and hot tubbing in the neighborhood.
The Staycation retreats are always sober, drug free events, as well as LGBTQi friendly. No alcohol, drugs or intoxication permitted onsite. Other agreements will apply as provided by the site's owners.
