Come away... and rekindle your friendship
A time to come away and reconnect with your spouse. . .
Anamcara - a Gaelic word for Soul Friend accurately describes the work of being married. Take some time as a couple to explore the importance of friendship in marriage. Learn some tools that will help you become 'soul friends.' Take a break from the busyness of life to pay attention to each other and connect, growing a deep friendship.
*PLEASE NOTE: As Ken has retired from counselling, he is no longer offering marriage counselling retreats. We do still encourage you to come with the purpose of growing your friendship. We have some great reading material available to use while you are here. Also some suggestions for books to purchase that will give you tools to use as you continue on your journey of friendship.
If you are interested in a marriage counselling retreat we'd like to refer you to Kendra Higgs: https://kendrahiggscounselling.ca/
*If costs are prohibitive for you, please speak with us when you book. Financial help may be available through our Scholarship Fund.
