LAKE JUNALUSKA, North Carolina—We are created for a lifetime of love and intimacy, but relationships can be hard, even for the happiest couples. Distance, frustration and disconnection can enter through any number of life’s events.
With that in mind, Lake Junaluska is hosting a Christian-based marriage retreat to help partners better understand each other and learn to cultivate a warmer, more joyful and loving relationship.
Dates for this year are March 10-12, Aug. 18-20 and Sept. 29-Oct. 1.
Attendees will learn how to strengthen essential psychological and spiritual foundations for healthy, happy relationships; how to stop rigid negative patterns in communication that lead to frustration and disconnection; how to be more accessible, responsive and engaged in your relationship; how to better understand your partner and help them to understand you; and how to share your deepest needs for support, love and affection and respond to those same needs in your partner.
Pastoral participants earn 1.5 CEUs for participation in this program. This retreat is perfect for pastors who regularly do marriage counseling, or anyone who wants to strengthen the bond in their marriage.
