“David and I just got back from one of the most amazing weekends. We went on a marriage retreat, that we have been calling “Love camp” hosted by the incredible Angela and James. This marriage retreat was designed to help good partnerships become great, and to help us “plan the life of our dreams”. And I can say it truly did just that and more. I’m blown away at what was able to come out of this experience. Surrounded by other incredible couples who I love and respect and have now learned so much from. I am certain this weekend forever changed us as a couple.”
Ylang Ylang is a little slice of paradise. Angela and James visited this resort for their honeymoon and are so excited to return while facilitating this international retreat.
Couples in committed partnerships, looking to take their partnership from good to great. This is not for couples in crisis. The retreat is designed for couples that are self-aware and are willing to invest the energy and resources in becoming their best self and support their partner in becoming their best self.
During the retreat, the facilitators will navigate you through the Love Intentionally Guide in three strategic phases (Strategic Life Planning, Deeply Connecting in Your Relationship, and Taking Your Love Into the World). Couples will tackle a topic or two on their own and then gather with the rest of the group for debriefing, sharing ideas, and learning tools provided by the facilitators. There is time built in for couples’ to have “date” time and down time, as well as social time with other couples if desired.
Colorado retreats are 3 days (2 nights), usually Friday midday to Sunday evening. International Retreats are 4 days (4 nights).
We have resort accommodations that are comfortable and private. Each couple will have their own room and bathroom. See info on upcoming retreats for more specific accommodations.
Most meals are included (usually 2 per day). See specific upcoming retreat for which meals are included and which are on your own.
We believe in clean, healthy eating as part of our self-care. The places we host retreats are usually able to accommodate some dietary restrictions. Please let us know and we will make efforts to accommodate your needs.
As much as we love our furry friends, our retreats do not allow for pets. If you have an animal that is licensed for your assistance, please contact us.
Great question! The best gift you can give your children is parents in a happy and healthy relationship. Some ideas that have worked for us or other retreat attendees are…ask a family member to watch them for the weekend. We have found that sometimes grandparents or other relatives love an excuse to come visit, especially if they know it’s for something as important as you staying happily coupled. Send them to “aunt camp” (or another relative). Ask a friend to watch them (some of our single friends love getting “kid” time). Ask another family to swap childcare with you (you take their kids for a weekend so they can do a retreat, too!). Is there a babysitter that you would trust to do a weekend? You could also do a combination of these…babysitter one night and friend sleepover the other night. It can take some finagling but having this time away is worth it! The return on investment is priceless.

It is not uncommon to have one resistant partner. Resistance is usually related to fear. You may choose to start by asking your partner about their resistance or fear. If we can help answer questions that may alleviate these fears, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’d be happy to get the four of us in communication and see if we can find a path that works for you both.
For many couples, doing this on your own can feel overwhelming. The facilitators are there to help set the tone and stage for the weekend, guide you through the topics, offer tools and resources, provide assistance with any hotspots or trigger points you might encounter, ensure you are able to optimize your time and make your way through the entire guide, and provide coaching to help you identify where to place your focus in moving forward. In addition, past attendees have found the collective intelligence from the debriefing sessions extremely valuable.
