June 15-17 (Fri-Sun)

$170 ($145/member)

9 CEU credits available for MFTs.

A retreat for couples.

Use the joys and difficulties of important relationships to awaken and mature the tender places of our hearts.

We choose relationships that can bring experiences of joy and intimacy, and, paradoxically, can elicit our anger, fear, and anxieties. This crucible of delight and fear provides an opportunity to awaken to conditioned patterns that block an open heart. We will explore practices that allow us to join with another in difficult and tender places, as well as how to cultivate happiness, compassion, and well-being in relationship.
