In Barcelona, Spain: June 23 - 27, 2016

You'll discover how to restart your relationship with your partner and create a higher level of meaning together. Enter your name and email below to set up a call for more details about the romantic Spanish weekend.


You're most likely here because you're:

  • Frustrated with the lack of communication in your relationship.
  • You don't know how to keep the relationship exciting.
  • Interests are different and you're not sure how to find common ground to grow together.
  • Short of time and motivation to share quality time together.
  • Saddened that the initimate moments together are few and far between.
  • Ready to make your relationship a priority, but are not sure what to do.
  • Do any of the above resonate with you?

Here's what I know is possible. You really can...

  • Restore the communication to let your hearts sing again.
  • Learn fun activities to do together to keep the relationship exciting.
  • Find common interests that support each others growth.
  • Make time in your busy schedules to spend quality time together.
  • Rekindle intimacy in the relationship using all the senses.
  • Understand your partners energy and deepest motivations.

A loving relationship has to touch our heart as well as expand us so we can keep growing together!

But here's the problem: the truth is, over time our attention wanes, we forget the love we once felt for each other and we start taking each other for granted. We struggle to keep the fire burning and maintain the spark in the relationship. This is because most people have never received insights into what it truly takes to keep a long term relationship fun and exciting.

Worst of all - if we keep doing what we've always done we drift apart.

But when we take the time to stop and spend time together in a quality, romantic environment we:

  • Rekindle the love and appreciation that we once felt for each other.
  • Renew the communication and flow of energy between us.
  • Share fun activities together that light up our hearts and reconnect us to whom we once were.

Restart your relationship in the green hills of the Barcelona countryside, where we undergo fun activities and share insights and expertise to renew a long-lasting and loving relationship.

I have participated in the Retreat Organized in May 2014 with Carles & Paula. The experience was fantastic. The house is the perfect place to host a retreat. The rooms, the facilities in the house makes a pleasant and comfortable stay. You feel easily at home and welcome. The organization and respect was exquisite. The food was prepared with care and delight. All details were surprisingly taking care of. All the activities planned on the retreat met my needs and expectations. I would definitely recommend this experience.

What a special place to transform, to grow and discover. Thank you Carles for loving Paula and bringing your sensibility, professionalism, openness and smiling eyes to this beautiful home. Thank you Paula for being such a life force. Beautiful, inspiring, creator of energy, knowing when to "fold them" and when to "hold them". It was an amazing experience being here with you. Thank you!

Carl Brooks, I want to thank you for being a key, an answer ...a serendipitous savior in this beautiful world. You came along at the right time to be a catalyst for a big shift in my life. The experience was life altering. You provided an escape that I needed desperately, you provided an opportunity to open myself to vision, you introduced intimate and valuable connections across the world, you are so refined and at the same time so real. Thank you for finding a way to integrate your fantastic mind with your essential heart. Thank you for paying it forward and generously bringing me on board for the experience. You are a master.

JJ's fun creativity and ability to let go & be really truly authentic in himself, made it easier for me to be that way as well. - Shari O'loughlin


If you are expecting “overnight results” with “very little effort/work involved” this, friends, is not for you. This is not a save-my-marriage scheme. We give you the tools and show you what to do, but only you can actually do it and yes, it involves getting in the trenches, listening to each other, being open to new things and doing work (that being said, we can take tons of time off your learning curve which is another benefit of this retreat).

If you are thinking of letting your wife practice yoga while you go off to have a beer in the garden, then this retreat is not for you.

If you have a negative attitude, please don’t apply. Life is too short and we probably won’t get along.

Also, if you “know all of this already ” this might not be for you. My guess is we will be sharing with you in the retreat things you already know AND things you probably don’t do.

But, this is the USP, the programme is all put together as a system for you both to experience step-by-step. If you come in with the attitude that you know everything or are looking for some kind of magic wand, this isn’t for you.


We want to make sure that what you need to get your desired results, is a good fit for what we're trained in. We do this together in a 1 on 1 strategy call.

During the call, we identify which life & relationship goals you'd love to achieve, anything that may be holding you back and the cost of staying on your present path if nothing changes.

Then, if it appears that we're a good fit, we'll share more details about the retreat and which package you would like (subject to availability).

Normal investment incl. all training, materials, accommodation and 3x daily meals = € 2,997 p.p.

Your Special Investment:

Twin room (shared bathroom) = € 1,377  p.p.

Twin room (private bathroom) = € 1,497 p.p.


When is it?

Thursday, June 23rd till Monday, June 27th 2016.

Who is it for?

Anyone who wants to restart their relationship. All genders welcome.

How big is the group?

Maximum 3 likeminded couples.

What clothing should I bring?

Barcelona enjoys a mediterranean climate. In June, the average daily maximum temperature is 25C/77F. In general, we recommend you bring casual clothing, something light for yoga and mediation, as well as something warm for the cooler parts of the day. If you would like to use the swimming pool, please bring swimwear.


This is the once in a lifetime opportunity that could change everything for your relationship. This is your chance to step away from the confusion and frustration of going it alone and dive deep into your love for each other in one of the most beautiful and inspiring places in the world.

We believe that you’ve come to this website seeking inspiration and answers. Consider this as your call to lift you to the next chapter in your relationship in the heart of Spain!
