LOVE ALIVE retreat

​​

This workshop is for couples who are committed to keeping their connection a priority and would like to enhance the passion, respect and joy in their relationship. 

The demands of parenting are exhausting. This is your chance to recharge together.  

We believe that thriving parents = thriving kids.

LOVE ALIVE RETREAT & PRIVATE SESSIONS

This workshop is for people in the THICK of parenting who want to spend time with their sweetie that will inspire you BOTH to be more compassionate each other, and also to yourself, and your children. It is so easy to put the relationship on auto pilot and dedicate more energy to work and parenting- because the relationship is strong and you love each other. Well, you can't do that forever and even though your relationship is strong it deserves your time and attention too!

Our work is a blend of intuitive mentoring and research based information based on 40 years of research​ on parenting and relationships from The Gottman Institute .  

Thresholds has been offering relationship based workshops since 2008. Each class will cover practical tools, inspiration, and plenty of time to connect and rest with each other.

You and your partner will learn simple ways to:​

  • Keep your relationship the priority.
  • Transform critical and defensive relationship dynamics into connection.
  • New ways to communicate with love and respect when stressed.
  • Revisit the connection that joined you together in the first place.

COST: $100 per couple to attend group retreats.  Scholarships Available.

Private sessions available 2-3 hours $200.

Curious to learn more about Love Alive retreats? Here are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions:

When should I take this class?

Many couples don’t seek relationship support until it is too late. If you and your partner want to make your relationship the best it can be. If you are parenting a young child— now is your chance.

Can I bring my baby to class with me?

No. This workshop is for grown-ups only. 

We have tried therapy before and it was not helpful why will this be different?

These workshops are not therapy. We are going to celebrate what you have done and explore ways that you can improve communication and problem solving. And we have a lot of time to practice and get feedback on how you are doing. Relationships are always evolving and this retreat provides the time and space for learning and reflection.   

My spouse is mean, can you make them change?

The approach of these workshops is that EVERYONE has room to grow and change for the better. I hope that everyone leaves with the motivation to adjust their behavior towards the good of the family. Sadly, some people need more time and space to make room for growth. We can't guarantee that the change you are looking for will happen in one day.

“I left feeling validated about the deep connection I already had with my partner and with concrete steps to deepen it for years to come.”

Dan
Middle School Teacher

“Our class WAS magic! Both of us are so thankful for the experience and the new tools. We both believe our relationship and family dynamic with new baby will ultimately be better because of it.”

“As part of our anniversary Elisabeth and I review the year and we each do a ‘high-low-high’ from the past year. We both agreed that our weekend with you and the ‘Bringing Baby Home’ class was a true highlight of the year. It was probably the best thing we’ve done for our relationship since our pre-marital counseling.”
