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!


Robby and Gina
