Considering a weekend retreat? Remember the feeling from your honeymoon? You know the connected, “I can’t believe I get to spend the rest of my life with this person” feeling? Did you get away just the two of you? Did you have a feeling of oneness and love? Can you describe that time in the following way?
We spent long days talking about things that matter and understanding where the other is coming from while focused on our relationship. Feeling like your partner gets you like no other. Pleasantly surprised by the spontaneous shows of affection. The ease of warm hugs and soft kisses were abundant.
Have you lost that connected feeling? Want to regain some of that connection? A weekend retreat may help you regain some of that spark.
What comes to mind when you think about a weekend retreat?
Retreat means to take a step back, slow down, regroup and gain skills or knowledge to move forward. Is this what you want for your relationship? The busyness of life can make it difficult to move forward in your relationship. Endless rushing to activities, sometimes in different directions, and habitual routines sometimes stress relationships and instead of connecting, we bicker.
This is when many couples begin to look for a way to help their marriage. Some buy books; some seek counseling from friends or a professional, while some attend marriage conferences.
Have you attended a marriage conference? Did you sit in a chair for the day and listen to a speaker on the stage give you generic tips to help with your marriage? Are you looking for something that enables you to work on your marriage in a way that is more interactive with your spouse and more specific to your issues as a couple? Have you considered a couple’s weekend retreat?
Research by the Gottman Institute (the people who research marriage and relationships) shows that you gain more connectivity when you get away for a weekend retreat.
Weekend retreats with Texas Marriage Retreat enable you to work on your relationship, targeting your specific issues, while getting away from your home environment. Talking and working on your problems in a different environment can spark a change in perspective that leads to growth for your relationship. When you couple that with the sage counsel of our counselors at Texas Marriage Retreats, your marriage could change directions for the better.
Our weekend retreat is structured so that you can learn to communicate and problem solve more effectively while still having the chance to connect just the two of you doing something you love. Located in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, our weekend retreat is minutes from hiking, fishing, shopping, theater, museums, and so much more.
When you leave your weekend retreat, you will have learned more about your communication style as a couple, how neuroscience can be used to help your relationship, the developmental stages all marriages go through, new ways to look at your issues and how to discuss and even reach resolution.
What are you putting into your marriage? You reap what you sow. Are you sowing seeds of connectedness? When was the last time you and your spouse got away and took a vacation or weekend retreat?
