Is conflict with your partner exhausting? Or maybe you just need time to connect? Do you desire to come home to a relationship that feels nurturing and restorative?


Maybe you have tried couples counseling. We all know the drill....sign up for weekly sessions; jump through hoops to ensure you and your partner can attend. Get cozy and comfortable, begin making some progress, and, oh look -- time’s up for this week.


But there’s a different way to reconnect with your partner in a single weekend! Join us for our 2021 Teton Springs Relationship 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.


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. Maybe all the time you could spend connecting with your partner turns into yet another argument. You may be wondering if your relationship is even sustainable.


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 have tools for improving areas that need support.


Our retreats help couples who are just feeling “a little stuck,” as well as those who are recovering from betrayal. You can experience a restorative bond and improved communication.


We’ve led many couples to a stronger relationship in a single weekend dedicated to growth. It’s so much easier to dive into a weekend retreat than to schedule weekly visits for months...the good stuff always starts coming out after an hour! We’ve chosen Teton Springs Resort in Victor as a backdrop for this retreat. We find that beautiful scenery, walks in nature, and peaceful ambiance really immerse our couples in this process.

  • 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.
