Couples' RetreatsChange of Scenery. Change of Beliefs. Change your Relationships.
Imagine a weekend or a full week together as a couple to enjoy peace, relaxation and pampering, empowering interactive workshops that provide you with the knowledge to enable you to grow together, and a connection with nature, the beauty of Sedona, and the Grand Canyon, that you will remember forever.
On a Western Spirit couples’ retreat, you will gain the time and freedom to discover how to manifest, empower, and heal your relationships and your life together.
Self-discovery, Reconnection, Healing
Our couples’ retreats (in whatever form it is to you—a relationship retreat, marriage retreat, honeymoon retreat…) will guide you and your partner along paths of self-discovery, growth, and healing, regardless of the form of your romantic relationship (new couple, committed relationship, traditionally married, same-sex partnership), or your faith or religious background.
Western Spirit is a non-religious and non-denominational retreat center. We operate on the universal principle that Spirit (God) is love, all humankind is connected, and we all have our own answers within. Whether you yearn to strengthen a new relationship, save a troubled marriage, or to further improve and enrich an already strong partnership, a couples’ spiritual retreat will benefit you and your partner for the rest of your life.
A Worry-Free Week of Insight and Beauty
Based on many years of helping people to rebalance their lives through our spiritual retreats, we have found the perfect balance of learning, activity, and rest. We take care of the week’s agenda for you so that you can focus on the true purpose of your retreat—self-discovery, reconnection, and healing. You and your partner will experience an incredible, worry-free week of insight and beauty in which to focus on your relationship with yourself and your partner, the underlying reality of your love, and the qualities that originally drew you together.

Why attend a Relationship Retreat?
Your main source of learning and healing yourself is your relationships. Through the joy and pain of interaction with other people—your spouse, partner, relatives, friends, colleagues, co-workers, and strangers—you progress on your spiritual path in order to learn about love from all sides. Through this process, you will discover there is no separation of yourself from another. The realization of your true spiritual nature is a powerful healing force in a relationship, and love is the ultimate healer. Relationships need nurturing and attention to survive.
A true romantic relationship answers your need for connection, intimacy, adventure, magic and spirituality. But it is also a means of triggering your old “wounds”. You do your healing through relationships. The real purpose of an intimate relationship is not that it be a place where you can hide from your weaknesses, but rather where you can safely let them go. Through committed long-term relationships like marriage (whether formally wedded, “common-law” or committed partnership), we all unconsciously seek those relationships that challenge us, mirror our most troublesome patterns, and offer us the opportunity to learn, grow, heal and be transformed. We seek out partnerships to experience aspects of ourselves that cannot be experienced when we are alone. This is what makes our relationships both exciting and difficult, adventurous and fearful.
By loving more freely and without fear, you can renew your relationship through loving actions. Realize that your happiness comes from within first, not from outside you. Forgive the past; it is over. Learn from it and let it go. Through understanding and love you can dissolve fear and anger, for the task of love is to understand and forgive. The more love you give, the more love is returned to you. It is not how much you give, but how much love you put into the giving that is important. In a relationship retreat or marriage retreat, like our Couples’ Retreat, you will learn how to detach from your fears and negative emotions in order to give love—positively transforming yourself and your relationship.
You may wish to check with your insurance carrier to see if a marriage retreat is covered under your policy’s mental-health or counseling provisions. The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act and the Affordable Health Care Act now require insurance companies to offer the same level of coverage for treating mental-health issues (such as domestic counseling, depression, addictions, alcoholism, eating disorders, substance-abuse, and other health problems) as they do for any other illness. If you or your partner are dealing with any of these issues, we can help. Couples are often referred to Western Spirit by their marriage counselor or therapist.
