Faith Transition Couples Retreat

Helping Mormon Couples Navigate a Faith Transition Together

Our special weekend is coming soon

Many couples struggle to redefine their marital relationship after a Mormon faith transition. From new parenting paradigms, to defining new shared values, to looking at impact of gender roles, to sexual contracting to creating new spiritual traditions... it can be an exciting, yet challenging new territory to navigate.

Natasha Helfer Parker, LCMFT, CST, Dr. John Dehlin, PhD and Margi Dehlin, Certified Life Coach, have run many successful retreats helping people transition in ways that promote healthy relationships and mental health. They consistently receive requests from couples for a setting where they can do a deeper dive into their unique situations. This retreat will offer an intimate space for 6 couples to do just this. The retreat will offer education, group exericses, and individualized time to help couples get in sync in the following ways:

  • Assess your four areas of intimacy to see where you need the most focus.

  • Define and recocgnize shared values that can serve as a new foundation to the marriage.

  • Aid with repair attempts necessary for healing from mistakes made along the way.

  • Explore and recontract gender roles that are no longer useful.

  • Develop a parenting plan to implement on return home.

  • Explore and recontract sexual considerations.

  • Explore and recontract spiritual or mindful practices you may want to adopt or ritualize.

  • Individualized content depending on attendees requests.

This retreat is meant for couples who are transitioning in their faith together. A similar retreat for mixed-faith couples will be offered in the fall.

15 hours of intensive work with three trained professionals who have specific expertise in the area of faith transitions.

"I loved that we covered so much ground."

"The incredible opportunity for my husband and I to talk about the things that matter most - the tender, the painful, the wonderful - in a confidential and empowering way. The time away from our children and other responsibilities helped give us the time we needed to focus on our relationship. The ”homework” each night was an unexpected delight and growth opportunity."

"I loved being able to spend enough time to work through the hard things."

"I wouldn’t change anything! I thought it was perfect! It was hard work. It was exhausting. But it was most importantly amazing. Great things flow from hard work. Thank you so much for being willing to work with us."
