Virtual Retreats & Intensive Online Programs

During the COVID-19 pandemic we are conducting virtual retreats online using Zoom rather than meeting in person. Our virtual work is every bit equal in effectiveness to our in-person retreats. Here’s what a few recent couples said about their virtual retreats:

“We were initially quite apprehensive about doing an intensive retreat online vs. in person. But John coached us the same as if we were together. In hindsight, there are no negatives to doing this online, and there are some real positives.”

“During this stay-at-home period the online intensive we did with you has literally saved our marriage. We are so glad we found you. And we thank you for the security we have found with each other through working with you.”

“This has been awesome to do during the Coronavirus time. We’re really grateful for you. We really weren’t doing very well. This all has been really effective. It finally feels like we are really a team and we own our relationship as real partners.”

Transform Your Relationship in a Virtual Retreat

Does your relationship suffer from poor communication, upset feelings, walking on eggshells, emotional wounds, built up walls, or other reactive cycles? Such negative dynamics drain a couple’s ability to feel in love or act in loving ways. But with the right tools, you can overcome these love-killing patterns and prevent them from destroying your relationship. At a couples retreat with John (also called a marriage retreat) you gain effective tools to resolve issues, heal upsets, dissolve walls, and turn things around. Typically seeing couples on the brink of divorce, John’s special approach helps them renew hope and positive feelings. And they take home new tools to ensure their love continues to thrive. John’s skill at coaching combined with his intensive retreat format is unique in its power to transform relationships, even those stuck for decades!

His approach to the work itself is distinctly different from traditional couples therapy or marriage counseling. And due to its exceptional efficacy, John has been sought out to train couples therapists and counselors in this new approach to couples therapy based in neuroscience and attachment research. His couples retreats offer a fast track to improve your relationship, navigate difficulties, reconnect and reinvigorate intimacy. Couples report they get far more than they hoped for. And, back home, after their retreat ends, they have the tools they need to stay on track.

Letters from Couples

"This is our one year anniversary of renewed happiness and wedded bliss thanks to our retreat with you. Before we came, we fought all the time and had no intimacy. We had nothing in common outside of our children and work. And we couldn't go on like that.

"You taught us how to understand each other and most importantly how to communicate with each other. Your help last year transformed our relationship. We have never been happier with each other. We’ve learned to love and laugh again. We cannot thank you enough."

— W and M

“We were truly at a crossroad in our marriage. You gave us the tools we needed to communicate effectively, to have an understanding and appreciation for each other's thoughts, personalities and needs.

"Through using these tools we have been able to heal old wounds and begin laying the foundation for a new, strong and healthy marriage.”

— B and A
