Is your marriage all that it could be? Does your intimacy and connection fill you as you hoped? Or has life pulled you apart and left you feeling distant–longing for more?
You were created for intimacy and pleasure – it is hard wired within you. The bond in marriage is the strongest when couple’s feel deeply loved, safe and connected. Marriage is the most enjoyable when partners are having fun and sharing pleasure. The practice of love over the course of a lifetime is the incubator for learning the art of loving … in all seasons. Each time we treat our partner with love, compassion and grace even in the midst of speaking our vulnerable truth – we exercise courage and our marriage becomes stronger. Love – when we live it – is a spiritual practice and a spiritual process … it takes skill, emotional regulation, courage and dedication. This is where our wedding vows are lived.
In our fast paced culture with all that pulls marriages apart – where are couple’s taught the skills needed to cultivate loving passion over time? Have you been taught how to integrate your heart’s desire for connection, your body’s desire for pleasure and your soul’s desire for healing? This couple’s retreat introduces you to the spiritual side of intimacy – how to develop the skills to heal and grow your connection and heighten pleasure. And … it does all this while deliciously spoiling you and your marriage for 3 ½ days!!
This retreat will:
- help couples identify cultural ideas and behaviors that have limited intimacy and sacred erotic expression.
- provide mystic ideas that reveal a profoundly spiritual design for loving communion.
- provide teachings on touch, sensual expression and rituals of intimacy that deepen closeness and erotic experience.
- assist couples in designing an intimate relationship that is sensual, intentional, connected and pleasure-filled.
This workshop is designed for all couples who want to strengthen their emotional, sexual and spiritual bond–and who know intimacy can be so much more then what they have been taught or experienced.
The cost is $1995.00 and includes a cocktail party Thursday and Sunday, breakfast and lunch Friday, Saturday and Sunday, retreat training materials and supplies, and the only retreat experience like this in the country! Registration AND payment must be made before your place is confirmed in the retreat.
The Passion Practices revealed in tender beauty the deepest parts of our souls to one another with the safety of love and support, and the gender groups gave us an encouraging and open space to share our experiences, thoughts, questions and ideas … it was all so lovely.
Thank you so very much. As a marriage and family therapist, I thought I knew much about the subject of relationships and marriages. Not until I dove into this experiential retreat did I learn life lessons that will help me to connect and love more freely and boldly, and receive that love too!

We have a deep level of dialogue, communication and openness based on the tools we have put into practice since the the retreat. From going to bed at a set time, to scheduling intimacy, we have a new level of depth! We realized that intimacy was so much more than sex. Our conversations, our actions and the spiritual side of intimacy has been a game changer.

I'm connected with my wife more than ever. The intimacy we share now and our new knowledge has increased our love, fun and friendship.
This retreat has left me forever changed, in every way. Not only is my marriage better, but I feel like I'm a better woman, a better mom, a better person.
Angela, Married 19 yrs
My marriage feels safer and more vulnerable after the retreat. We are talking more honestly and openly about things we used to fight about or simply avoid. I am seeing my partner reveal more of their self to me, which is making it easier to give my partner my love.
Anna, married 10 years
I have learned to be intentional to set time aside - time for love-making (not just intercourse) – where we prepare our hearts and minds for that time together. Within that time we are spontaneous and enjoy the moment wherever it leads us.
Leslie, Married 30 yrs
We now look at intimacy and our sexual expression as a couple through a sex positive framework of beauty and togetherness, and celebrate each other instead of feeling shame, confusion or anxiety.
Melanie, married 12 years
It was almost magical to watch the transformations that every couple experienced.
This retreat changed our marriage and I don't just mean our sex life. Truly, the way we interact with each other will never be the same.
Sarah, Married 4 years
The weekend provides an opportunity to focus on each other in ways we rarely do, and to view the gift of sexuality in a powerfully healthy way.
Bill, Married 40 yrs
We were desperate to 'fix' our sex life. Or what we thought a sex life was. We had no idea what we were in store for. Amazing transformation of our marriage!!
This retreat is not to be missed if you seek to take your relationship to a new deeper level of connection, communication, and spirituality.
Luke, Married 15 years
This retreat did a wonderful job of showing me what's been missing in my view of intimacy and sexuality. It's put our marriage on an upward trajectory and brought back some of that "honeymoon" feeling for us.
Shane, Married 19 yrs
I had no idea what to expect - I was very afraid. The place Tina & Gary created for the whole group was so safe. Beyond what I imagined with my preconceived ideas. Honesty and kindness was woven throughout the whole weekend. We added playful and fun too!

It is a life changing and relationship changing experience.

This was the best time and money I have ever spent on a vacation. We all like to get a good return on our investment. I can honestly say the lifelong return on this investment cannot be beat.
This is absolutely an investment that warrants consideration given how influential the connection with your partner is to personal well-being, happiness, fulfillment, and hope in life. If you value these things, and you find yourself lacking, then this is an opportunity to get positive, long-lasting results in a short period of time.

You can’t put a price on your marriage. Seriously, for our situation this was not financially easy. However, in the end it was worth every penny!
This retreat completely changed our marriage. It is like we walked out with a new relationship. Our physical and intimate contact on a daily basis is awesome!

This retreat is something I wish I had done 20 years ago. The things you will learn about yourself, about your spouse, about your marriage, about intimacy, about God will blow you away and change your life for the better forever. Go!
Whether or not your relationship needs anything, this experience will vastly enhance your relationship.
This is an opportunity to listen, share and learn how to love and be loved and be more connected in your relationship. It's something every couple should learn so their marriage can be all that it can be.

I have already encouraged 4 couples I know to attend. I told them it will forever change your marriage for the good!
The retreat changed our lives. I feel more in love, more connected to, and more appreciative of, who I am married to. I came home dedicated to communicate openly with my wife about us, our desires, and our needs.
