Not only merely Wed*, but Truly and Sincerely Wed: Overcoming hurdles in relationship to keep the fire burning


Dates and Location

About the Retreat

Open and inclusive to all couples regardless of age, ethnicity, race, marital status, or sexual orientation. Limited to a total of 12 couples. 

Gather with a small community of couples at a lovely southwestern Hacienda in Corrales to identify and overcome hurdles in relationship, to heal and to stoke the fire in each couple’s union. Since 2016 couples have been meeting together each year in retreat to laugh, cry, listen, be heard, share, love and support one another with a common goal of growing and improving their relationships as couples.  Some of the couples have been together for decades, others for less than a year.  Each participant brings their wisdom, world view and life experience, which can be shared for the benefit of others. 

The retreat will commence between 4:00pm and 5:30 pm Friday with a potluck dinner at 6:00pm.  We will meet Friday evening and dismiss at approximately 9:00pm. 

We will gather Saturday morning after you have had your breakfast and begin meeting at 9:00am. Lunch and dinner will be provided including carnivorous, vegetarian and gluten-free options.  We will conclude Saturday evening at 8:00pm. 

We will gather after your breakfast at 9:00am Sunday.  We will meet Sunday morning, a light lunch will be provided, and we will dismiss following tear-down of the shelters and clean up early Sunday afternoon.  

Throughout the weekend there will be periods of free time to rest, go for walks and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.  Last year we got to see baby owls! 

This is a smoke-free and fragrance-free environment.  

For information, contact Robby Beck, or 575.207.5992 or Gina Windle, or 505.652.6051

The cost for the weekend is $190 per couple. 

Scholarships are available. If you need a scholarship, contact Gina or Robby.

Dear Friends,

The 2019 NMMW Couples Retreat is scheduled for May 17 – 19, 2019 at Chitak and Amba Caldwell’s lovely hacienda in Corrales, NM.  Once again, they have offered to open up their home for the Couples Retreat.  Since 2016 couples have been meeting together each year in Retreat to laugh, cry, listen, be heard, share, love and support one another with a common goal of growing and improving their relationships as couples. 

We are taking Online Reservations beginning on Friday, March 1st at 12 noon (MST), and will be limited to 12 couples, including the leaders.  Please complete the reservation form and submit it no earlier than noon on March 1st.  Reservations will be accepted based on the time submitted.  Reservations with an earlier submission time will not be considered.  Each couple planning to attend must complete the online reservation form.  When your reservation is accepted, you will sent information about how to complete your payment either online or by mailing a check. 

The cost of the Retreat is $190 per couple.  This will cover the cost of materials, catered meals at lunch and dinner, snacks, and clean up after the Retreat.  Breakfasts and lodging will be up to you.  We hope that local registrants will open their homes to out of town participants to keep the cost of lodging to a minimum.

Invite your spouse or partner to join you for a weekend of appreciation and enrichment of your relationship.  We look forward to seeing you there!
