Our Unique PAIRS Approach
At the heart of our retreats is the PAIRS Approach, which is designed to enhance love, intimacy, and communication in a way that's unique to our programs.
Steve Abma has carefully crafted this approach to ensure that every couple
embarking on this journey leaves with a renewed sense of love and connection.
It's not just a program; it's a philosophy that drives your entire retreat experience.

Forge a secure emotional bond so you can learn to look out for one another, and count on one another, no matter what difficulties life brings.
Open your hearts and minds, and discover how vulnerability supercharges the level of trust, love and respect in your relationship.
Master the art of conflict so each of you can navigate relationship challenges with confidence, compassion and a win/win attitude.
Learn to notice and address thoughts, feelings and relationship needs as they arise, rather than ignoring or fighting about them.
What makes the PAIRS Approach exceptional is its focus on blending the best practices from various therapeutic modalities, including attachment theory, neuroscience, and personality styles.
This robust and user-friendly approach helps couples
dive deep into understanding themselves and their partners,
allowing for transformative growth and lasting change.
