Deepening Intimacy Through Compassion and Understanding – Seeing the Other in Me
Couples Retreat – 8-10 May 2015, Fynbos Estate
We all crave intimacy and loving connection with our partners. The desire to be seen, heard and truly met. From this space it opens our hearts to connect deeper and more fully, allowing for greater possibilities to open up both in ourselves as well as within the power of our partnership.
This two-day weekend retreat, open to couples in either same or similar sex (aka opposite sex) partnerships, provides a beautiful opportunity to get into nature away from your usual stressors of daily living to engage in a facilitated process of reaching greater understanding of both yourself as well as your partner.
Using elements of process work, supported by creative exercises and intimacy practices we’ll unfold the deeper desire for the relationship as a system as well as connecting to the questions of how to connect deeper with one another and what are you wanting to create together in this union.
What you can expect:
- BlissDance, a free-dance practice drawing on the wisdom of Biodanza and designed to facilitate a deep dropping into the present moment, the root of intimacy.
- A facilitated journey of understanding secure attachment and the impact of gender roles on our relationships, with guided exercises to reach greater understanding and compassion.
- Introduction to intimacy practices that can be done privately to bring greater awareness and presence to your love-making.
- A facilitated process to design and create your relationship vision.
- A weekend away with plenty of time to relax and unwind in nature surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and majestic mountains.
Just an hour’s drive from Cape Town, Fynbos Estate is a unique and special place and has been called ‘a hidden gem’ and ‘a corner of paradise’. Set in a kloof of the Paardeberg, Fynbos Estate has come to be a favourite amongst local and overseas guests with a love of nature and countryside, comfortable yet simple accommodation, and fine quality food.
We understand how tricky it can be to take time from work, and equally we want to ensure that we can maximize the time spent in nature, relaxing and spending time with the one you love. As such, we have allowed for the retreat to begin with dinner at 6pm on Friday 8th May giving us time to meet and check in with our opening circle before starting with our fuller program through Saturday and Sunday, finishing around 5pm. For those of you with younger children and at a loss for babysitting, please let us know and we can discuss what options we have for accommodating you at the venue. Depending on demand, we will have a program available for children to be accommodated at the retreat.
