San Diego, CA is known for it's over 70 miles of pristine white beaches, it's incredible attractions such as the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and Lego-land, and is often referred to as "America's Finest City." With so many great things to do combined with spectacular weather, it's hard to stay inside very long. Traveling to Coronado Island for the day is a great outing, as long as you're not scared of the extremely high bridge to get there. San Diego is also filled with lots of fine eating ranging from Mexican, wood-fired pizza, and Asian. Couples know it's a wonderful place to call home.

What does the couples retreat in California cover?
1-Establishing a Covenant Foundation
The first step is to decide if you're going to approach your marriage as a contract vs a covenant. A contract says I'm committed to you as long my needs are met and I'm in love. The covenant approach also values needs being met and being in love but it's committed to the long-haul, knowing there will be seasons of winter in marriage too.
2-Owning Your Brokenness
Building on top of a covenant foundation you must own your brokenness, which is the culmination of all your weaknesses and shortcomings. Sounds like a fun topic doesn't it? Instead of owning your contribution to the problems in your marriage, you probably excel at blaming your partner for them. This step levels the playing field so both partners are looking at their part evenly.
3-Learning to Share Power
After building a covenant foundation and owning your brokenness, it's important to share power on all decisions so you both feel like equals in your relationship. Love flourishes when equality is the spirit in the relationship. This step will help get you there.
4-Developing Emotional Attachment
The backbone of all relationships is being good friends. However, it's hard to do without a covenant foundation, owning your brokenness, and sharing power. Developing emotional attachment includes building emotional intimacy and working through resentments and conflicts constructively.
5-Cultivating Sexual Fireworks
Sex is best in marriage when partners are aiming towards a covenant foundation, owning their brokenness, sharing power, and have emotional attachment. Good sex is the result of these prior steps being in place. Cultivating mutually enjoyable sensual and sexual contact that balances the needs for both high and low libido partners is essential.
6-Staying in Love
Once you've built the previous five steps, it's essential to keep it alive through learning to stay in love. This step will teach you a powerful tool for falling back in love and staying in love long-term. The more a couple stays in love, the more their relationship naturally becomes affair and divorce proof!
"I loved the combination of seminar then breaks, which allowed us to have deeper conversations as a couple. The presenter was very personable and we loved hearing their own stories and examples." J.L.- previous attendant
