Experiential Couples Retreat
Scottsdale Arizona
October 7th, 8th and 9th

Why is an Experiential Retreat Unique?
The experiential approach has the basic belief that for strong relationships, couples need to meet each other in a genuine manner with intention to promote the deepening of each partner’s intimate experience in the relationship. This retreat will guide couples toward achieving an empathically attuned relationship, a caring bond between partners, in the moment experiencing that is appropriately healthy and healing, and increasing the capacity for reflective awareness (not automatic responding). This allows for personal growth to occur for each partner and growth in the deepening relationship.

Objectives:

  • Experience you partner authentically,  utilizing healthy communication.

  • Experience your partner as they work to heal hurt in the relationship.

  • Learn several strategies to create intimate, non-defensive dialogue. 

  • Learn communication skills that drive intimacy and limit defensiveness.

  • Learn the conflict stages and plan strategies for each stage.

  • Identify targets for healing in your relationship and learn how to work toward healing these past ruptures in a compassionate way.

  • Understand the unconscious agendas that are operating in your relationship, how they are negatively influencing each of you by creating barriers to attachment, and how to make small course corrections to redirect connection.

  • Experience two guided imageries as a couple that will help you understand each other’s childhood from a different perspective and how your survival strategies of the past are driving your longings in the relationship. In the process, understand you own internal critic and how it can create barriers in your relationship.

  • Learn all the dimension of intimacy, know your strengths and weaknesses, and strategies for strengthening intimacy.

  • Learn a process for strengthening the sexual and sensual relationship.

  • Know the differences between survival and growth stances.

  • Experience an activity called “The Couple of the Future” and set the actions necessary to be that couple.
