Our Premier Couples Retreat


​Is a research-backed experience that blends engaging content with time to enjoy the beautiful setting and activities available.  We use an innovative blend of technology and nature to provide an optimal environment for growth.  Our nationally recognized, experienced facilitators will help you walk away feeling ready to tackle the next step in your relationship.   

This isn't your typical couples retreat.

What to Expect

Over the course of the retreat you will participate in multiple lectures from Dr. Cuthbert.  These sessions consist of engaging instruction and time to process with your partner.  Don't worry - you will not be asked to share intimate details of your relationship with the group. 

We will provide you with the results of your pre-retreat couples assessment and guide you on direct next steps based on the results.

You are also invited to explore the multi-acre campus  that includes wooded hills, walking trails, wildflowers, and a lake, all for your exploring.
