2. What will I experience during this Sedona couples retreat or marriage retreat and will I achieve my personal retreat goals?

What you learn and achieve during your Sedona couples retreat or marriage retreat depends primarily on you. With the proper attitude, intention and follow-up, you will experience a strictly confidential, transformative, life-changing weekend of 1) self-discovery and inner reflection, 2) learn your real love language and how to express it, 3) forgive and heal past trauma, old wounds, and infidelity, 4) transform fear into love and renewed connection, 5) develop greater communication skills, 6) improve ALL your relationships, 7) learn to truly listen with your heart, 8) increase your self-esteem, 9) discover peace, love and joy, and 10) change your life into one of abundance and gratitude.

3. Where is the marriage retreat or couples retreat located?

Western Spirit is centered in Sedona, AZ, once voted “the most beautiful city in America”. It is located in red rock country at 4,500 ft elevation and is renown for its natural beauty and superior outdoor opportunities. Sedona also has a worldwide reputation as a serene spiritual destination known for its sacred vortex sites, that is, “power spots” long identified by past indigenous people for their spiritual healing energy. Your Sedona couples retreat or marriage retreat will include numerous empowering couples retreat or marriage retreat workshops held in a nearby Healing Arts Center and significant time in exciting outdoor activities in Sedona and the (optional) Grand Canyon.

4. What will be the cost of my Sedona couples retreat or marriage retreat and will I have private accommodations?

Western Spirit’s couples retreats and marriage retreat rates are simple and direct: $2,895 (+ tax) per couple for the long weekend retreat (Fri-Mon). Our Sedona couples retreats and marriage retreats are all-inclusive of your private room lodging in Sedona, all the empowering workshops, and the outdoor activities. Meals are not included because we have found that guests have differing food desires and budgetary limitations. Additional Sedona activities or souvenirs you may wish to choose on your own will be extra costs for you. Because Western Spirit is a 501c3 non-profit organization, our couples retreats and marriage retreat rates are among the lowest rates and best value in the Sedona area.

5. What types of Sedona couples retreats and marriage retreats do you offer and what is the size of your retreat groups?

Western Spirit is a small, all-inclusive (non-religious & non-denominational) organization that accepts only 2 guest couples at a time for our couples retreats or marriage retreats, allowing more time for personal attention, bonding and group synergy. We come together as both teachers and students for each other to support and learn from one another. We also offer personal retreats and women’s retreats, in addition to our couples retreats and marriage retreats.

6. What is included in my Sedona couples retreat or marriage retreat?

Western Spirit’s Sedona couples retreats or marriage retreats include: 1) your comfortable lodging in a local inn for four nights (guests arrive on Thursday afternoon and depart on Monday afternoon), 2) eight empwering and life-changing workshops, 3) daily guided meditations, 4) a session with a Native American intuitive, 5) a tour of Sedona’s beauty and energy, 6) a visit to an ancient Indian ruins, and 8) a nurturing spa massage.

Why Attend a Couples Retreat or Marriage 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 yourself and 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. Perhaps you need a couples retreat or marriage retreat now.

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”, committed partnership, same-sex), 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 attending a marriage retreat or couples retreat, you will come to understand these principals. 

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, like our Sedona Couples Retreat and Marriage Retreat, you will learn how to detach from your fears and negative emotions in order to give love—positively transforming yourself and your relationship.

Insurance Coverage

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.
