A total immersion into the mystery of your marriage...

MELD Marriage Escape is an opportunity to escape the patterns of your life as they may be and pause long enough to notice the person you've committed your life to. It is a FUN, experiential, intimate, and powerful three days. You and your partner will have creative opportunities to look into the eyes of the other and see who is over there. It is an opportunity to know and be known; to love and be loved. The MELD Marriage Escape is for couples who think their marriages are GREAT and for couples who are wondering if their marriage is barely clinging to life. It is applicable for all married couples and inclusive of all age ranges and length of relationship!

MELD Marriage Escape is held over three days at a resort. The experience is designed with great intentionality. You will have set times to be in a training environment and creative times that you will design on your own with specific homework to do together during those times. The training sessions are comprised of group conversations facilitated by a certified Transformational Trainer or Coach, private conversations with your partner, and experiential exercises designed to reveal your heart for your partner and that which you don't know, that you don't know. The homework will sometimes be journaling or having a specific conversation with your partner and at other times the assignment might be to find a new way to have fun at the pool or playing a sport or other activity.

Part of what is unique about our transformational inquiry and the MELD Marriage Escape is that is it not a "fix your marriage", it is an invitation to write the story of what your marriage will be from now on.
