General Questions

Yes, it really can. Come with an open mind and heart, and you are bound to come away with skills to better your relationship. The more effort you put in, the longer lasting the results.

Who doesn't love Hawaii? The reality is, a romantic getaway alone is not going to teach you new skills that will help resolve old issues and foster a deeper connection. As a matter of fact, with just a trip alone, you will leave with your luggage and come back with the same "baggage". Then you'll be right back where you started.

Why not attend an online marriage course from the comfort of your own home? Do you really need to arrange for child care, take time off from work, and travel when you can learn online?

Online courses can be very beneficial, yet nothing compares to an in-person setting that is much more conducive to learning. The reality is, when you're trying to follow the course while eating lunch, answering the door, and tending to your toddler and/or teenager, how focused are you?

If you can take time from your spouse for work, you can take time from work for your spouse. 

You've gone to a work retreat, right? The focus of those settings is to spend more time getting deeper into issues that normally don't get the time or dedication found in a regular work setting. The intention is the same for this retreat. Sessions and activities are geared towards getting into the intricacies of your marriage, while fostering togetherness and understanding. The skills and depth of learning happens distraction free, in an immersive setting.

Wait, there's no dinner cruise or horseback ride into the sunset included in the package? This doesn't sound very romantic.

What is more romantic than feeling understood by your spouse after a day of thoughtful, productive and insightful sessions than taking a sunset walk with your beloved against the backdrop of majestic mountains, and spending the night together, alone, in a private, comfortable setting?

      [The] location really helped clear the mind and allowed nature to inspire the soul. Awesome balance between group conversation and couples' time. Facilitators: your perfect balance of personalities were a great model to observe.

        SEQUOIA - 2021

        Very practical. Very real. Framework based on real-life scenarios to move us from A to B. We've done some of these things but didn't know how to complete them. We know we have challenges but not how to address them. This weekend gave structure to our internal times of chaos.

          Attending this retreat gave us the skills, motivation, and confidence to lovingly address issues rather than sweeping them under the rug.

            Jazak Allahu Khairan for this amazing experience. I am grateful for this opportunity to learn how to improve my marriage through these principles, more importantly grounded in Islamic values which has been something we've been looking for. You normalized such important conversations which has helped normalize them for us as a couple. I've already started using these tools which has helped [in] my conversations with my spouse. Allah bless you both and your families.

              [The exercise Overcoming] Gridlock...was the meat of our issues and gave us exactly what we needed, which was practice working through our own issue. Having the facilitated format gave us structure to be productive with our gridlock.

                The quality - occasion exercise was powerful. It allowed my spouse to express how he feels [about] and sees me. Such feelings are never shared.
