Retreats are conducted by Certified PAIRS Instructors using the PAIRS Essentials curriculum.

  • Restored and revitalized relationships
  • Higher levels of satisfaction
  • Reduced symptoms of distress and anxiety
  • Greater commitment to shared vision
  • Increased resilience for marriage, families and relationships

Testimonials:

“My wife and I were as far apart as any couple on the edge of divorce could be.  This weekend has been a game changer.”

“My husband and I have been married for 9 years & have attended counseling, marriage retreats; had one-on-one help, yet no one nor any resource has made an impact like PAIRS Essentials.  For the first time, we actually engaged in meaningful discussions that offer a win/win for both of us.”
