Discover the #1 Key to keeping love alive. Find out the real source of conflict in many relationships. Learn a technique that will instantly enable your partner to understand how you feel.
These important relationship building blocks are only part of what you will take home from Keeping Your Love Alive, a day for couples designed and led by Peggy Patenaude. You and your partner will also explore and experience ways to grow as individuals so as to bring the best of your selves to partnership. Through creative one-on-one interaction, you will learn how to increase intimacy with your partner. Together, you will develop a plan to continue to nurture the relationship when the day is done. By sharing the day with other couples in a peaceful, non-threatening environment, you’ll discover that keeping love alive is really a life-long journey. All sharing is between partners with some time for optional feedback within the larger group. Though the retreat is not religious in nature, a spiritual component is included. The overall goal of the retreat is simply to enhance and strengthen the bonds that already exist between two people in love.
Five Keeping Your Love Alive retreats, open to any couple in a committed relationship, are scheduled for the coming year. See below. If interested in hosting your own retreat, please contact Peggy. Couples retreats can also be facilitated as an overnight or weekend experience for four couples at the Falmouth location. For more information, click on the sidebar link "Overnight Retreats".
