I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be assisting at this year’s couples’ retreat led by Judith Ansara and Robert Gass at Hollyhock centre on Cortes Island, August 4-9, 2017.

I feel honoured that Judith and Robert have invited me to join the team for the 5-day retreat. I’m very much looking forward to working with the participants, and I’m excited for the opportunity to learn from these two highly respected and experienced teachers. The venue is also inspiring… Hollyhock centre is fabulous!

Robert and Judith have been leading relationship retreats at Hollyhock for sixteen years, and everyone I talk to who has experienced their work has great things to say.

From the program description on the Hollyhock website –

Rekindle and deepen your experience of love and connection. Join the thousands of couples who have attended our couples’ retreat and found their relationships infused with renewed passion, skillful communication, mutual respect, deeper friendship, and greater joy and pleasure.

For those who already share a good and loving connection, this retreat is an opportunity for further enrichment and discovering new levels of intimacy. For those who are feeling challenged in partnership, Sharing the Path offers healing ways to rekindle and strengthen your connection and love.

Most couples report that this retreat has been life-changing. In a respectful and safe way, you will be both challenged and supported to break out of old unskilled habits and be guided in the practices of conscious relationship—authenticity, self-responsibility, empathy, appropriate boundaries, sacred sexuality, deep listening and effective problem solving. You will practice with the content that is most relevant to you and your partnership, thus tailoring the retreat to meet your specific needs. Our time together is also infused with play and fun–something many couples report wanting more of. You will go home with important skills and tools to continue creating a life you love.

All couples welcome.

I hope that some of the wonderful couples I’ve worked with over the years feel called to join us.

The dates are August 4-9, 2017. Space is limited and these retreats do typically sell out. Register early to reserve your place.
