Ignite & Expand Couples Retreat

A perfect weekend getaway for the couple who is looking to (Re)Ignite passion and expand your intimate connection! Whether you have been together for two months or twenty years, passion and intimacy are a key component to a strong and beautiful relationship.

As a healer and bodyworker for 25 years, I have heard countless stories from clients of how the request from their mate to “rub their shoulders” is a turn off. Why? It’s usually not why you think. It’s not that you don’t want to or don’t know how, but you feel inadequate for the task. On some level. Or that you are on emotional empty! Either way, this request from your partner being unmet causes space and hurt feelings,
not connection. And that space over time grows and gets harder to fix.

You don’t have to have professional training to lovingly take care of your mate through massage or touch. Intentional touch along with loving motives can spark your passion along with strengthening your intimate bond. Which can in turn, spark more passion!

This retreat is not a massage retreat though. We will incorporate partner practices including touch, emotional calibration techniques that help you “get in the mood” to be of service to your mate, somatic practices to bring you closer, address insecurities and help you remember how to GIVE and RECEIVE from your partner.

We will connect through body and mind, connecting at your soul. You will have plenty of time to relax and practice too.

Say “Yes” to the tranquility of Thanksgiving House. For your all-inclusive weekend, we are nestled in the forest next to a 100-foot waterfall and it is the best place to get away from the city, connect with your mate and feel the powerful abundance of nature all while enjoying local, seasonal nutritious meals.

Yes. Yes. Yes.
