Do you want to feel more connected, communicative and loving in your relationship? Perhaps you are starting a new relationship and want to set a solid foundation for growth and not make the same mistakes you did in the past? Or perhaps you have been together for quite a while and have lost a bit of passionate connection and would like to rekindle the flame? Or maybe you just want to spend a fun, relaxing, intimate weekend together?
The “Couples Retreat” led by Nicole Porter & Brendan Ries will be beneficial for any couple, at any stage of development. This interactive retreat will offer information, tools and experiential
activities throughout the weekend that will improve your relationship vision, communication, understanding, empathy, and depth of intimacy. If you would like to develop, or re-develop and discover the conscious unfolding and healing that your relationship has to offer for growth and greater potential, this is the perfect retreat for you. It is also a great way just to unwind, relax and spend some quality time together.
Nicole and Ries have both been living, working and studying throughout the East and West for the last 19 years. A central part of their lives, work and studies have been Mindfulness, Conscious Community and Relationships. Coming together and combining their experience, they have over 30 years of teaching, facilitating, hosting and leading classes, workshops and retreats in Japan and other parts of the world. Nicole is a Certified Yoga Therapist, and Conscious Movement Teacher, Ries has an MA in Teaching and Certification in Group Facilitation and Conflict Transformation. They have both received lay-ordination as Meditation and Mindfulness Teachers, and are also both Certified Couples Coaches.
They see relationship as an integral part of growth, true health and happiness, and through their own work together on their relationship they have moved into greater and deeper understanding and love for themselves, each other, and life as a whole. They are passionate about this process and looking forward to sharing their experience and practices with other couples during this retreat.
