Discover More Meaningful Moments — Together

It’s no secret that marriage takes work, nourishment and commitment. For many of us, life gets busy and — before we know it — we’re in need of some quality time with our spouses.

At WinShape Marriage, we believe you and your spouse can find a renewed opportunity in every stage of marriage to lean in and learn even more about growing together and strengthening your relationship.

Through our three-day Marriage Retreats, couples get the chance to step away, reconnect and focus on their marriage. Each retreat is led by a marriage speaker in a large group setting. In addition to the programming portion of the event, you will encounter a relaxing, one-of-a-kind environment at WinShape’s Mount Berry Campus – allowing you and your spouse to fully unplug and engage in the experience. Read more about the Retreat Experience to find out what’s included in your stay.

How To Choose A Marriage Retreat

WinShape offers a variety of retreats designed to meet couples exactly where they are in their marriage journey. Whether you’re engaged and looking to lay a healthy foundation or have been married for decades and want to rekindle a flame with your spouse, there’s an experience that has been crafted with you in mind.

With more than 20 retreats to choose from, finding the right fit for you and your spouse can feel overwhelming. Here are some things to consider when choosing your marriage experience.

Retreats listed on our website are categorized by title and focus area. You’ll see this through the tool featured on the Upcoming Marriage Retreats webpage, which is designed to help determine the most relevant experiences based on your needs. Simply select the focus area you’re interested in, and the most applicable experiences for you and your spouse will be displayed.

After narrowing down the choices, you can explore each retreat’s page to determine which one makes the most sense for you and your spouse. Each page includes an event description, retreat dates, cost*, and information about the speakers for the weekend.

Interested in multiple retreats? Try diving deeper into the speaker biographies to help you land on a decision. Keep in mind that WinShape Marriage Retreats are annual events and may be offered multiple times throughout the year, while some retreats are only offered once.

Ready to find a retreat** and get away with your spouse? You can do that right here. For questions about specific retreats and to make a reservation, call 706-368-6801.

*All retreats are $620 per couple with the exception of Follow Your Heart, which offers self-guided programming and therefore does not include a marriage speaker.

**Sometimes couples need more than just a weekend away. If your marriage is suffering from deep hurt and needs a breakthrough — maybe it’s in crisis and divorce seems like the only option — consider attending a WinShape Marriage Intensive.
