An intensive couples retreat for couples healing their relationship after betrayal

Friday June 30th – Monday July 3rd 2023

This weekend retreat, created and tailored for couples past the initial crisis stage of betrayal recovery, will offer you a chance to reflect on your journey as a couple.

In a supportive and healing environment, alongside other couples, you will be offered opportunities to engage your “story of us” by looking back at the past, acknowledging the present and re-visioning for the future.

All activities will offer opportunities for you to engage with topics such as grief, intimacy and meaning making in ways that feel safe, achievable and realistic to you while also seeking to advance your healing and connection.

By the end of the retreat you will have participated in opportunities to grieve the losses betrayal has created for your relationship, acknowledge (and even celebrate) the growth and healing that has already taken place while becoming aware of what still needs attention, connect over a vision for your future life together and make meaning from your story.

We hope that this retreat will offer couples an opportunity to really move from “my story and your story” to “the story of us”.
