I can’t guarantee that you and your partner will always stay together and live happily ever after. Life is not a Disney movie. Challenges and opportunities that no one can predict will most certainly influence your future as a couple.
However, I can tell you that couples who regularly practice retreats share a powerful understanding of their needs and dreams – both individually and as a couple. They’re able to approach the future with a cohesive mutual vision and clear intentions that are anchored in well-articulated values. Retreats support the viability of your relationship and prepare you to negotiate life’s random curve-balls with grace and wisdom.
The retreat process ensures that you regularly discuss the health and stability of your relationship. You’ll consistently adjust the course of your days to respond to your changing needs, opportunities, and aspirations – individually and as a couple. If the two of you start to drift from each other, you’ll know it; and you’ll talk about it openly while there’s still plenty of time to plot a mutually agreeable change in course.
It’s possible – even with retreats – that you and your partner may over time agree to pursue different life paths. If you have been practicing retreats, this will not come as a surprise but as a gradual and measured realization, allowing you to separate with dignity, compassion, and grace. You could be at peace knowing that you have given your best to this relationship, and you would know exactly why you chose to dissolved your partnership.
A retreat practice guarantees that you will move through life mindfully, with clear intentions, living in alignment with your most closely held values. Retreats guarantee personal growth, enhanced relationship skills, and ongoing communication, and they provide the opportunity for relationship renewal and re-creation.
No one plans to fail in love, but few plan to succeed. Make ProActive Partnership retreats your plan for relationship success.
