Couples in Threshold
October 7 @ 1:00 pm - October 10 @ 4:00 pm£495.00 – £795.00
Four day residential intensive at EarthHeart
Breakthrough work for couples who are at a threshold in their relationship and looking for comprehensive and radical shifts
If you are answering yes to any of these questions below we can help:
~ Are you going round and round in the same conflicts and arguments ?
~ Are you feeling despair and desperate for change ?
~ Have you tried therapy but it didn’t work ?
~ Are you feeling like there’s little or no hope for the relationship ?
~ Are you maybe on the edge of splitting up ?
This is not therapy
We have over 30 years combined experience working with couples and the context of all the work is rooted in our interconnectedness with the web of life. We are elemental nature beings and our feelings and experiences of being human need to be contextualised within a wider understanding of our ancestral deep time conditioning. A lot of what we get stuck in with relating is due to the systemic generational patterning that we get taught down the lineage and through cultural conditioning. This is why working in the context of others in collective trauma and patterning decelerates our healing. We are here to help. This goes much deeper than therapy. It is a radical approach to transforming even the most stuck and seemingly hopeless places you find yourselves in.
We specialise in working with couples who are in crisis and we have over 3 decades of experience in this area. This retreat is for couples who really want to make the relationship work, couples who are willing to working deeply with us and exploring if and how their relationship can be mended.
We are fully aware of how vulnerable, scared and hopeless you might be feeling. Along with possible anger, grief and despair. This work will be deep, raw and challenging and we will hold you in it from a loving, compassionate and caring place.
In order to be able to do this kind of radical work there needs to be enough time to build trust, as well as space to allow the process to work. If you are serious about doing what it takes then we will walk with you through the threshold and hold you with our care, our wisdom, our committed attention and our time.
How it works
Each retreat is limited to only 5 couples so that there is time to be able to give each couple the time and focus needed. These retreats are suitable for couples who are serious about doing what it takes to heal the relationship.
“Thank you so much for the Thresholds, I can’t really find the words because its implications are so significant for our relationship and our lives together…. a really transformational chapter”
Paul and Harriet
In this short video we guide a couple through a repeated conflict they experience and bring them back to connection. This is one of many methods we use when we work with you as a couple.
Our Values and How we support you
We do not hold to a specific type or style of relationship. We honour what you have chosen as a couple and support you to make that thrive. And if the type of relationship you want has changed, we will explore that too with you and find new ways to create what you want together, so that both of you feel empowered in your choices.
We do not aspire to any particular expressions of sexuality, we welcome all aspects of expression and celebrate your unique and individual way of expressing your sexual being. Our guiding principle is this:
‘As long as it is truly consenting, held with a loving heart and mutual respect then let’s explore!’
Dates and Practicals:
We offer this retreat 3 times per year. The next date is below. The retreat is a 4 day fully residential immersion and you are required to be here for the entire duration.
They begin at 2pm on the first day and end by 4pm on the last day.
