The Couples Retreat will focus on the exploration of the growth offered through a romantic relationship and how to dive into that opportunity, expanding each partner in the process. This experiential workshop will allow couples to:
- Clarify, explore and expand your vision for your relationship;
- Illuminate patterns from your family of origin and where these patterns are supporting and getting in the way of intimacy, love and connection;
- Learn how to fight fairly, expressing upset fully without damaging your relationship, but rather forwarding it;
- Nurture and develop your capacity to like and respect your partner for who they are.
- Solve solvable problems and surrender to those that are not “solve-able.”
- Continue to live into the highest potential of your partnership;
Warm, comfortable private lodging provided as well as nourishing meals in a family-style environment.

I am so grateful for this experience! I gained so much from this retreat. I learned many tools to use in my relationship, I had a hard time communicating with my partner of 15 years. We were going towards different directions. You learn when you get there that so many couples are going through similar things. It was so eye opening.

Such a fun and enjoyable time with my partner and other couples. I have added a new level of depth to my relationship. I learned different communication tools to use during emotional conversations.
– Ryan Kwong
I had a massive breakthrough in the realm of honesty, respect, and loyalty with my partner and created immense value, connection, respectful communication, acceptance, healing and space for growth with my life partner.
– Joshua Vaughn
My breakthrough in this workshop is revealing my and partner’s deepest wound and healing each other. The depth of communication, understanding each other, love is absolutely beautiful. Now I fully understand my partner in a totally different way with love and empathy, and being committed to grow with my partner.
– Coco Shen
Through the training I was able to grasp a deeper and more clear understanding of my relationship and why we have struggles and challenges that we do. I created value in understanding my partner at a deeper level and being given tools to help us when were in breakdown. And most importantly to understand everything is okay and normal and they it supposed to be.
– Shelly Ferreria
During the experience of these trainings I learned how to handle arguments with my boyfriend in a way that wouldn’t damage the situation more. My breakthrough will be learning to accept myself and finding a way to 100% trust in my boyfriend once again. Healing is a major part of this process. I had a breakthrough on how to handle my boyfriend’s unseen feelings I hadn’t seen before.
I experienced deeper intimacy, trust, clarity, love, and joy in our relationship than I ever thought possible. Best sex of my life!!!!!
It opened up space in our marriage that was previously filled with hurt, anger, and resentment around a affair my wife had that limited how much I was willing to love her. The oneness now in our marriage is limitless.
– Steve Roseberry
Time well spent learning about what makes me tick – how and why I do what I do and how that impacts relationships. For myself and wife we learned why we are how we are and now have more tools to enhance our lives together.
– Mark Maund
Tremendously insightful experience. The process brought clarity and direction about who I am, why I do things, and how fortunate I am to be with my partner. Thank you again Lynne!
My fiancé and I attended to have better understanding of our relationship and create a strong foundation for our marriage. Couples I was invaluable to us. The homework challenged is to truly understand each other and come out of our individual comfort zones and came together. Everyone should go to this before they are married! We can’t wait for Couples II.
This training was a total mirror for my life and our relationship. Many processes that helped evaluate and breakdown barriers that have been an issue; and many barriers that I didn’t know existed.
Couples I gave Dylan and I the tools we will need to be married. I strongly encourage anyone thinking of getting married to do this training with your partner and prepare yourself for what marriage is good and bad. I know Dylan and I talked and did things we would never have, It was amazing and so was Lynne.
This experience has such an impact on my husband and myself, we signed up for Couples II today. Lynne Sheridan and her staff are amazing. They make you feel so comfortable with all the intimate subjects being discussed.
– Patti Maund
I was able to get the emotional connection and feel instead of explaining away and being defensive as a way of opening up because I feeling opening up because I felt opening up will make my hurt vanish. And keeping hurt gave me motivation.
Lynne’s training is so instrumental and it’s for a couple at any stage of relationship. In my instance, my partner and I were in a new, not yet committed relationship and we learned so much about each other, about ourselves, and the dynamic that we shape with one another, It has been a wonderful foundation to build upon!
The training was an opportunity for my partner and me to learn more about each other and gain tools we can use in our relationship. We learned important methods on how to resolve conflict in positive ways.
I appreciated Couples I for allowing my partner and I to dig deep into why we have struggled in past relationships. Knowing how to address our own issues permits the relationship to grow and flourish. All the staff was open, authentic, and available for support. Thank you.
– Julia King
Couples I opened my eyes to the perfect mirror that my wife is to me. I realized all the frustrations, struggle, fear and anger I project on to my wife that kills our relationship was about me, not her. Our marriage got the course correction that it has needed, finally!
– Luke Suchecki
This training was exactly what my husband and I needed to go to a deeper level of connection and love in our marriage. It empowered us with tools to be able to share our feelings in a way where we feel seen and heard by each other. I had gone from questioning my marriage to being 100% certain and confident we were perfect for each other! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
– Colleen Suchecki
This experience has been truly amazing. My husband and I went into this weekend with a lot of resentment, anger and lack of love. By the end of the weekend we were laughing together, holding hands and closer than we have been in a long time. We now have the tools we learned to help us make this the best marriage possible.
Allowed my wife and I to overcome obstacles that were beginning to look daunting. Gave us tools to use to grow closer in situations where it would be easier to move apart.
Couples I helped bring to the surface the self love issues I have with myself and how these issues affect my relationship. During Couples I we were given the tools to effectively communicate each others feelings.
– Jade Brady
I came into the training uninitiated in any of the processes and experiences and quite skeptical. I was here to support my partner. But I have come away from the weekend with a sense that we have some new tools to improve our relationship and I feel good about the future.
Lynne is amazing at reading and understanding people. She has a gift to open your eyes to feelings/situations you are struggling with and to shift your mindset to better understand how to be more at peace with yourself, your partner and life. It is life changing!
– Kristen Olaf
I learned to take responsibility, Going into the training, I thought my wife was the one with a lot of issues. I learned that I need to take care of my own actions. I learned to support and listen and ask questions rather than trying to fix the situation. I learned about my addictions that I didn’t know I had. I learned a lot of tools to help bring my relationship to an all new level and experience.
I created a way to see when I’m triggered by my partner and understand that it is not my partner creating the trigger, it is wounds from my past. I got that no matter how often I run away or replace other people, I cannot run away from myself. I committed completely to my relationship for the first time.
We attended couples to enhance our marriage of 33 years What we found were ways we had held on to hurtful areas from out past that were blocking our intimacy. We learned how much we are mirrors of each other and how together worked through those areas. We are stronger now than ever before with amazing tools on how to keep our marriage on the best track possible for another 50+ years! AMAZING!
This training has allowed me to discover that I have the power to create everything around me; my problems, my past, my issues and insecurities. But also my strength, my light, my future, and my love.
This training has been incredibly valuable for me, my husband, and my marriage. We have a new appreciation for each other and an understanding of where we’ve created problems and breakdown in our relationship. Most importantly we learned an incredible tool for conflict revolution and to build intimacy. I’m so grateful to Lynne for facilitating such an enriching and fun weekend that gave us space to grow and rediscover deep love! I would recommend this retreat to ANYONE in a committed relationship.
I was hesitant, resisting, skeptical. Even after I signed up, showed up. But slowly things started to make sense, started to learn things about myself and my partner. A lot of why we argue, why we can’t communicate made sense now. I walked one feeling confident that we had the tools to make our relationship work. I walked out loving my partner more than ever, when a couple weeks ago I had my doubts. I’m glad I made the decision and I have no hesitation to sign up for Couples II.
The experience that I had in class was amazing. Fun & exciting. I was afraid of what was to come of this trip, not knowing what to expect. Me and my wife going through ups and downs, not knowing where my relationship was going. This class made me see and find the love again and why I love my wife.
