Back by popular demand, we are excited to announce our Fall 2022 Thriving Relationship Retreat!
A THRIVING RELATIONSHIP RETREAT IS
ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFTS
YOU CAN GIVE TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP.
The waitlists are crammed full, and the couples have spoken. We’ve chosen to host this retreat locally, making it accessible to more couples. Stroll along the Snake River greenbelt, or grab a coffee and sit by the fire. Enjoy Mexican fare at Jaliscos, or gourmet burgers at SnakeBite. Stay on property, or sleep at home. Whatever you choose, grab a babysitter (and a pet sitter, too!) and immerse yourself in our process.
Does spending a weekend working on your relationship sound exhausting? Yes? Well then, you’re in the perfect place. You’re probably feeling a bit stuck. Maybe you’re having the same fight over and over again, and it’s not accomplishing anything. Or maybe you are content, but you and your partner want to build an even stronger relationship.
Join us for our 2022 Idaho Falls Thriving Staycation Retreat. We’ll provide time, restorative space, and a framework that strengthens your bond. You’ll have insights that immediately impact your communication and interaction for the better.
At our retreat, we simplify relationship work. Instead of being overwhelmed by the relationship as a whole, we take the time to focus on manageable pieces. By the end of the weekend, you will have identified your strengths, and will have tools for improving areas that need support.
Don’t wait! This event is limited to 10 couples.
We value your privacy. All exercises are done with your partner -- no public disclosure of personal information.
Revisit the strengths you and your loved one share, and compassionately address any areas that need work.
Discover and practice tools for aligning your visions.
Strengthen friendship, increase trust, and deepen connection
Learn to effectively navigate conflict and make repairs.
Meet Your Retreat Facilitators
Brandi Hobbs, LCSW and Shannon Johnson, LCSW
are the co-founders of The Thriving Relationship. They are both Licensed Clinical Social Workers who reside and practice in Idaho Falls, Idaho. They have a passion for supporting couples in cultivating a thriving relationship. It isn't easy, and most couples need guidance along the way.
