Couple Retreats with Aafke

Being in a relationship with another person can be rewarding and challenging at the same time. Occasionally it may be experienced as painful or frustrating. Sometimes one can feel hurt by the things others say or do.

In our home in France couples, partners, family members, colleagues, et cetera are being offered the opportunity to investigate the issues that cause miscommunication, anger, frustration, hurt or pain. The house offers a quiet, peaceful and safe atmosphere.

By doing The Work of Byron Katie you will find ways to really open up to each other and to truly listen to each other again.

Couple retreats in practice

Joint morning session: from 9.30 to 11.30 hrs
Joint afternoon session: from 14.30 to 16.30 hrs

During the sessions we will take a deep look at your specific issues. You will also be handed tools on how to apply The Work in between sessions. In between sessions, the emphasis will be on how to listen to the other person, without filling in what he or she is going to say, and without interrupting him or her.

It is up to you to make your stay as intensive as you’d like. For some people it works well to combine The Work with relaxation time, walks in the wood or meditation. Others are happy to continue doing The Work in between sessions. Both are equally valuable. There is no recipe that is applicable to everyone. See if you can choose what feels good for you, and if you don’t, notice what is holding you back to make your own choices.

Couple retreats are suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners of The Work.
