Upcoming Couples Retreats

Hold Me Tight is a couples retreat for Christian couples

Hold Me Tight Couples Retreat

Are you looking to enrich a healthy relationship? Revitalize a tired one? Rescue one gone awry?

The way to enhance or save our relationships with each other is to be open, attuned, responsive, and to reestablish a safe emotional connection. In this workshop you will deepen your connection with one another through heart-felt couples exercises, heal past or present hurts, and communicate with more success and clarity. Together, you will create a deeper sense of security that you matter, that you are cared for, and that you are important to your spouse.


Helping couples deepen their emotional connection in one weekend using Dr. Sue Johnson’s “Hold Me Tight” program, from her bestselling book, Hold Me Tight®: Set relationship advice for relationship problems.

“I’m so thankful for the insight, the program and in depth questions from the facilitators. The growth, healing and new approach learned is priceless. The instructors were safe and really helped us to go to new depths and create new and better patterns for moving forward and deeply connecting” – L.K. San Diego
