The AUSTIN, TEXAS LESBIAN COUPLES RETREAT is a unique resource for lesbian couples seeking opportunities to grow your relationship through fun, travel, adventure, friendship as well as learning and practicing new relationship skills. The Austin, Texas lesbian couples adventure is a three-day getaway where very few decisions need to be made and the purpose is to feed your relationship with nourishing information in a safe and enjoyable environment with other lesbian couples.
An enjoyable and enlightening a learning experience. The structure of the retreat sessions created a safe place that allow all the "feels" to come to the surface. I highly recommend it to all couples who are looking to deepen their connection.

AUSTIN LESBIAN COUPLES LODGING
The AUSTIN lesbian couples adventure is a customized retreat experience designed to meet the needs of five couples (6 max). There are two (maybe 3) spaces for couples who wish to participate in all retreat activities and stay off-site. There are three spaces for couples who wish to participate in all retreat activities and stay onsite along with Michele and Kristen. Retreat spaces are designed to create a comfortable, intimate and safe space to gather, connect, dine, play, and enjoy a weekend with other lesbian couples. The Austin Retreat location is a private 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom Airbnb. The address will be provided upon registration (pictures are available on the retreat schedule page).
The Austin lesbian relationship adventure is a customized workshop experience with content that is tailored to your lesbian relationship concerns and interests. Couples will complete a pre-workshop relationship questionnaire that will be used to create a unique, one-of-a-kind learning experience. The sessions will focus on the top issues and concerns identified by the lesbian couples attending. You will experience 14 hours of retreat learning sessions, shared meals, and an adventure out on the town for a unique show on Friday night. The weekend schedule for group meetings is listed here.
Breakfast is included to all participants regardless of lodging choice, as well as dinner on Thursday and Saturday night (which will be provided during the evening sessions). On Friday, we will coordinate a group dinner at an agreed upon restaurant, and each couple will be responsible for their own meal. Lunches occur during your free time, and you are free to choose those options on your own. Friday night, we will venture out together for dinner and a show. The tickets for the show are included in the retreat price.
I highly recommend it! It doesn’t matter what stage your relationship is in, this experience will benefit you. We were able to open up in a way we haven’t been able to do on our own, and we continue to use the skills at home. The friends we made were an added bonus, we had such a good time! I feel so thankful for the experience. No matter how things turn out we are going to be better co-parents to Greyson because of the tools and knowledge we gained, so thank you, I accomplished my goal.
