The ONLY couples' retreat this year:
For the first time, Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife will be offering a couples' retreat this Fall from October 26th to the 31st! Join her in Jackson Hole, WY for a life- and marriage-transforming experience. The Strengthening Your Relationship workshop will take place October 26th and 27th, and the Enhancing Sexual Intimacy workshop will take place October 29th through the 31st (with Sunday, the 28th to relax and reflect between the two workshops). For the maximum benefit, participants are encouraged to stay for both sessions for a focused five-day experience. Participants are able to sign up for only one of the workshops if needed.
Included in the retreat tuition is a gourmet lunch prepared each day by Hotel Terra's Executive Chef, Kevin Humphreys, (voted Best Chef in the area for nine years in a row).
For additional cost, enjoy a gorgeous guest room with AAA Four Diamond quality amenities and service standards with our event room block, giving you access to a discounted room rate (arranged by you separately--see details under the Accommodations section).
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to interact with Dr. Finlayson-FIfe over multiple days, while being immersed in an entirely new way of understanding and addressing your relationship challenges.
The Strengthening Your Relationship and Enhancing Sexual Intimacy live courses are both challenging and life-changing. Live instruction from Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife in the first of the workshops, Strengthening Your Relationship, will be offered October 26th & 27th. It will present ways to understand and address difficult relationship dynamics that interfere with marital happiness and intimacy. It will help you see your own contributions to challenging interactions, and teach you how to better self-regulate, communicate and deepen your friendship and connection.
Instruction in Strengthening Your Relationship is an excellent foundation for the couple's Enhancing Sexual Intimacy instruction, but not required. The second workshop, Enhancing Sexual Intimacy instruction, taking place on October 29th - 31st, addresses common psychological and relational roadblocks to intimacy and passion. It offers a framework for understanding where your relationship is challenged, and can help you deepen connection and satisfaction as a couple.
Because of potential restrictions with work and family, we are separating these two course instructions into two separate events. The Strengthening Your Relationship course will take place on Friday and Saturday, and Enhancing Sexual Intimacy course will take place on Monday, Tuesday, and half of Wednesday. Please feel free to attend one or both of these live workshops as circumstances allow.

"A year ago today ... we were in a very difficult place in our marriage and -- to be honest -- I was hoping that [taking your course] would help my husband change. I was pregnant, my husband was in a pornography recovery program, I was in trauma therapy and we were constantly fighting. We went through the [SYR] course and it was so eye-opening. ... It promoted a lot of self-confrontation at a crucial time in our marriage. Then, in September I attended your Art of Desire workshop and that was also just amazing. It pushed me further in my development, self-management and integrity. .. Tonight we were reflecting on this past year and our marriage and we attribute a lot of the growth to participating in your courses and the application of those principles. It wasn't comfortable or easy but it was worth it, because saving our marriage is worth it.
You're doing an important work and it really impacts families like ours. So, thank you!" -- R.A. online course and workshop participant.
"I want to say thank you so much for the work you are doing. It has blessed my life in ways that I feel incapable of expressing. The changes I have had to make have not been easy, but they feel worthwhile and purposeful. All of my relationships are healthier in great part from the things I have learned from your classes and podcasts. My "frame" for looking at the world, and parenting, and marriage and God have changed drastically. It has caused me to confront my limitations and the limitations of others in a way that has been incredibly freeing. Thank you for all that you do."
— H.L., Strengthening Your Relationship class participant
" I just started listening to the relationship course again. They are SOOO good! I have read SEVERAL dozen marriage / relationship books. Other than John Gottman's books, these 2 courses are the best. I feel they are really giving me something I can do. ... Even though I do see some things that I can say "my wife is doing that", it is REALLY making me think hard about ME and MY role -- enough where I am now listening and not even thinking about her, but just about how I have contributed and where I need to change. I expected that these wouldn't just be for my wife, but I am surprised at (with your insight and articulation) just how much I am focusing on myself."
— N.B., Strengthening Your Relationship class participant
"I am LOVING your classes SO much!! Thank you!! ... Really facing myself and looking at the hard truth of all I've done to contribute to our many struggles, I decided I really wanted to start over again. I focused on working on my own sexuality leading up to our [recent] trip so that I could bring that to him more fully. So, without all the details ;-), I TRULY fell in love with my husband again. It seems crazy and cliche, but seriously, all that I've been able to confront within myself has unlocked my ability to love him more fully and completely---which honestly, I had no idea was possible! I'm still working on myself and my own capacity to desire and give myself to him, but MAN! the sex is amazing! and it's like I CANNOT get enough of him! --I'm pretty sure he didn't see this side of me coming after 20 years of marriage! So again, thank you!!"
—T.A., Enhancing Sexual Intimacy course participant
"Jennifer, your [new] sexuality course is excellent---truly exceptional. It has made such a difference for me and my wife. We are in a better place than we've ever been because of it. The work you are doing is so needed, and so important in the Mormon world. Thank you, again."
— E.H., Enhancing Sexual Intimacy course participant
"I've been meaning to write and thank you for both of your classes. ... I can honestly say that your classes have invigorated and reinvented our marriage. Both of us have been happier than we've been in years --- probably the happiest we've ever been. Our daughter said to me recently that she noticed that my husband and I have been so much more positive and happy. I cannot tell you how wonderful this all is! Just know that you are doing really good, important, lasting work! Thank you so much! "
— S.D., Strengthening Your Relationship and Enhancing Sexual Intimacy course participant
"Thank you for teaching this class. We had a wonderful experience with both the "Strengthening Your Relationship" and the "Enhancing Sexuality" courses. I found the assignments particularly helpful. Going through them allowed me to process what I learned in the classes and apply it to myself. Doing that helped me identify a lot of things I need to confront to improve my relationship to my own sexuality and my sexual connection with my husband. I feel like I'm leaving the course with tools in my tool box to deal with my avoidance of sex, a problem I now see more clearly."
