PORTLAND Lesbian Couples Retreat
JULY 19-23, 2019
An enjoyable and enlightening a learning experience. The structure of the retreat sessions created a safe place that allowed all of the "feels" to come to the surface. I highly recommend it to all couples who are looking to deepen their connection. Chris O. Jackson, NJ (Burwell, NE Retreat OCT 2018)
For the Portland lesbian Couples Retreat, accommodations are available for three couples to stay onsite in the Airbnb where Kristen and I will be staying, along with three other couples. In addition to the participants who will be lodging with us, there are three additional spaces for couples who are either local or who wish to find lodging on their own. Each of these options is offered on a first-come basis.
Once you register, the exact location of the AirBnB will be provided to you. We will be in the Alberta Arts District of Portland, Oregon. For those who opt to participate but not lodge with us, you are invited to participate in all of the scheduled workshop activities (meals, sessions, cookoff, etc.) but you will need to arrange for your own sleeping accommodations.
PORTLAND RETREAT IS IN ..
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.
