Sat February 9 - Sun February 10
All Day

Location
White Point Beach

Do you have a baby or young children? Are you stuck in the stress and struggle of those early parenting years? Do you work all day and spend every evening engaged in an endless list of kids activities, errands, tasks, and chores only to crash with your kids at bedtime?

Unfortunately, this is the reality for many couples out there. Your dreams of starting a family and raising kids may have looked very different than what you are now experiencing day-to-day. The transition to parenthood is difficult and 67% of couples experience a drastic decrease in relationship satisfaction after becoming parents. This is what people don’t tell you when you get pregnant OR they tell you but you are convinced that you will be part of the 33% of relationship “masters” category and not the 67% of “disasters.”

It’s not too late to reconnect and rejuvenate your romantic relationship with your partner! This weekend retreat will teach you specific skills to reduce stress, build an effective parenting team, manage conflict, increase intimacy and frequency of sex, and most importantly move through time together making your dreams come true, together!!

The greatest gift you can give your children is a strong relationship between their parents.

This weekend workshop is the culmination of four decades of rigorous research on couples and families conducted in the “love lab” at the Gottman Institute (https://www.gottman.com/) where they study the science of love! In addition to a wealth of relationship information, you will learn specific skills that you can practice every day to build a satisfying, strong, and sustainable partnership. At White Point Beach Resort, you and your partner will have privacy to complete exercises on your own with professional support available as needed. There is no expectation of public sharing of your personal information, though the opportunity is provided for those who benefit from expressing their own experiences to the group. A comfortable, safe, and inclusive atmosphere will be created over the weekend which will allow each person to participate at their own level. You will meet together each day from 9:30 – 4:30 leaving the late afternoon and evening for your own romantic and restful time together.

$979 (no tax) per couple. Includes the 12 hour evidence-based psychology program and program materials to keep, one nights accommodation, and all snacks and meals.

***INSURANCE REIMBURSABLE BY MOST PLANS***
