Fall into intimacy - He Said She Said

“Fall Into Intimacy” Retreat @ Sunday River, Maine in the midst of Autumn Colors

Join Tarah and E.J. Kerwin for our next couples retreat at a luxurious resort style home during the change of the seasons in beautiful Maine. The weekend will focus on connecting with your partner in a deep and meaningful manner. With a mixture of group and individual sessions, couples will learn how to express and receive their most vulnerable relationship needs and desires. Activities will help couples reconnect with what initially drew them together and create specific strategies for ongoing commitment to loving each other completely.

The Glenn House is an 8,500 square ft. home which includes: 9 luxury bedrooms with 600+ thread-count linens, 7 spa-inspired bathrooms (every one with multiple shower heads and body sprays), a new 4-person dry sauna with music system and all the infrared health benefit, a 2-person steam room, a magnificent 5-person steam room sauna and a fantastic 20 seat authentic HD movie theater with theater seats.

The vaulted ceilings and towering stone fireplace flank your view of the Mahoosuc Mountain range across the golf course and the outdoor gas firepit on the deck. On the entertainment loft, you will find a mahogany foosball table, a 9’ professional tournament pool table, Ms. Pac Man Cocktail table arcade game and a great classic bar with an icemaker and copper sink. In the evening, sit out on the deck in front of the incredible view and roast marshmallows on the gas fire pit. With so many gathering areas there will always be loads of room for everyone to spread out and find a private spot for connecting.

This retreat is appropriate for couples who feel stable within their relationship. Couples will be pre-screened to make sure this retreat is appropriate for your relationship needs.
