Creative Commitment: How to Live on the Inside of Love
Inspire. Commit. Love. All couples need dedicated time to take pleasure in and strengthen their commitment. Our non-residential retreat, in a beautiful natural setting, welcomes married, unmarried, gay, lesbian, transgender or straight couples. You will learn perspectives and skills to deepen your connection and enrich your knowledge and appreciation of your partner and yourself. This is especially important when one or both partners are experiencing extraordinary demands on her/his time, energy and attention (e.g., graduate school, empty nest, new family member, new job). In guided exercises with your partner, you will learn two powerful practices: Fanning Out Your Feelings and Crossing the Bridge. You can bring each practice into your daily life to help meet your adaptive challenges with joy and solidarity. Come deepen your capacity to accept the essential pain of intimacy and its joyful, enduring gifts. I will co-lead the retreat with my husband, Paul Finley (paulfinleytherapy.com).
We do not have a date set for our next retreat.
