Sharing the Path: For Couples

With Judith Ansara & Robert Gass

August 14 - 19, 2019

Rekindle and deepen your experience of love and connection. Several thousand couples have attended our profound couples’ retreats. Many report that the experience was life-changing. Virtually all found their relationships infused with renewed passion, more skillful communication, enhanced mutual respect, deeper friendship, and greater joy and pleasure.

In a respectful and safe way, you will be both challenged and supported to break out of old unskillful habits and be guided in the practices of conscious relationship—authenticity, self-responsibility, empathy, appropriate boundaries, sacred sexuality, deep listening and effective problem solving. You will practice with the content that is most relevant to you and your partnership, thus tailoring the retreat to meet your specific needs. Our time together is also infused with play and fun–something many couples report wanting more of. And of course, simply time dedicated to just the two of you! You will go home with important skills and tools to continue creating a life you love.

“The best thing we have done for our marriage! It reinvigorated us in love, intimacy and joy. We continue to improve by using the tools and wisdom you shared with us. Forever grateful.” – Nancy & Roger, Nevada City, CA

For those who already share a good and loving connection, this retreat is an opportunity to develop your skills, and discover new levels of intimacy. For those who are feeling more challenged in partnership, Sharing the Path offers healing ways to rekindle and strengthen your connection and love.

Same sex couples warmly welcomed.

Judith and Robert are assisted by long term associate Indrus Piché, and Anna Stein.
