Retrouvaille Online Program July 2023
A Retrouvaille weekend is a unique and transformative experience designed to help couples in troubled relationships rebuild their emotional connection and rediscover the love they once shared. It is specifically tailored for couples who are experiencing challenges in their marriages, such as communication issues, infidelity, or other strains, and who are seeking guidance and support to heal and strengthen their bond.
The program consists of a weekend retreat followed by a series of follow-up sessions. Throughout the weekend, participating couples will engage in various activities and presentations led by a team of volunteer couples who have themselves experienced difficulties in their relationships and have found healing through the Retrouvaille program. These volunteers offer their personal stories and insights to provide support and guidance for the participants.
Here’s what to expect during a Retrouvaille weekend:
- Privacy and Confidentiality: Your privacy is respected throughout the entire weekend. You and your spouse will not be asked to share your personal issues or problems with anyone else, and no group therapy or group discussions are required.
- Structured Program: The weekend consists of a series of presentations and exercises that focus on communication skills, emotional healing, and rebuilding trust. Couples will have the opportunity to practice these skills and apply them to their own relationships in private, one-on-one sessions with their spouse.
- Supportive Environment: The atmosphere at a Retrouvaille weekend is non-judgmental, caring, and supportive. The volunteer couples are there to offer guidance and encouragement, and participants are encouraged to approach the weekend with an open mind and a willingness to work on their relationship.
- Spiritual Component: Although Retrouvaille has a spiritual component, it is open to couples of all faiths and beliefs. The program’s primary focus is on the emotional and relational aspects of marriage, and any religious elements are designed to be inclusive and nurturing for all participants.
- Follow-up Sessions: After the initial weekend, couples are encouraged to attend a series of follow-up sessions to reinforce the skills and insights gained during the retreat. These sessions provide ongoing support and resources to help couples continue on their path to healing and growth.
Participating in a Retrouvaille weekend can be a powerful and transformative experience for couples in crisis. With an open mind, dedication, and commitment, many couples have found renewed hope, healing, and a stronger bond through this supportive program.
