Couples Retreat: Deepening Your Connection in Wild Wonderful Crete

Couples Retreat: Deepening Your Connection in Wild & Wonderful South Crete

With our busy daily lives, we often we get caught up in our routines and may begin feel as if we are slowly losing our connection to our partner.

We may notice that we don’t take the time we used to to communicate with our partner with care, may not offer our full attention or even remember to express how precious this lover is to us.
We may even forget to feel our own needs.

This workshop has been created for couples who are longing to find each other again, to re-connect and experience true intimacy and love in a relaxed setting. The workshop will consist of a maximum of 3 couples, allowing for a very personal experience. Your integrity as a couple is very important to us. Some of the time we will all work together, but the most of the time you will work alone with your partner and one of us. .

In this week, we will work in a slow and non-intensive way so you learn some valuable tools for deepening your connection, including emotional language, loving communication, forgiveness, transforming frustration into trust, intimacy and understanding.

This is not group therapy, but an opportunity to explore together as a couple your common vision & deepest longings.

You will have plenty of time to explore, process & enjoy each other alone as a couple.

So this can be a holiday for you both as well!

South Crete is a unique part of Greece known for its relaxing and wild nature, delicious food, privacy, seclusion and endless pristine beaches, an ideal setting for love and connection.

About Jivan & Alf

As a couple, we have experienced separation, divorce, infertility, cancer, parents’ death, 2nd generation immigrant problems, cultural/religious differences, language differences, being a step-parent, beginning a new relationship, age difference, cultural conditioning in male/female roles, parenthood, in-laws….

Such experiences can be learning experiences that help you grow as individuals and as a couple, or they can be devastating.
With the help of meditation, teachers and patience, we have transformed these challenging experiences into deeper empathy and compassion for ourselves, each other as a couple and others.

Using our experience, different models and tools and our intuition, we help many individuals and couples find their own path to a richer life of deepening relaxation and trust.
