About the accommodations
Prices for overnight programs include room, board, and tuition.
These quiet, single rooms are perfect for those who want a real retreat, and are simply decorated with a twin bed and desk.
For those who elect to share a room with a guest or another participant, these offer comfort at a modest price.
Commuter rates include lunch and dinner during the program.
Private rooms are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis, with consideration given to those with special needs.
Couples in their 50s and 60s find their lives and their couple relationship shifting focus as they approach retirement age. New questions arise: Do we look forward to adventures, second careers, or new roles, or do we envision more time for hobbies and leisure? How will retirement affect us emotionally as well as financially? Where is our relationship with our children going? What are our fears and hopes for this next, uncharted phase of our lives? This retreat offers couples the opportunity to explore these questions and more, focusing on the need for clear, honest, and caring communication. Not a “retirement seminar,” but a safe, supportive setting for loving partners to prepare for the challenges and opportunities ahead.
$660/couple,shared room; $460/commuter couple
