WinShape Retreat - Rome, GA

Self-Guided

Retreat Description

Throughout marriage, you and your spouse experience various seasons of life—some easy, some hard, and some in-between. Seasons provides an opportunity to slip away together and share a private respite while you reflect on your journey. During this self-guided retreat, you’ll use a devotional notebook containing biblical principles for marriage to guide your thoughts and conversations. Move at your own pace and spend ample uninterrupted time together—resting, exploring, talking, and laughing. You’ll leave more rejuvenated and reconnected! 

Key Takeaways

  • Time to breathe and reflect on your current circumstances 
  • The chance to have meaningful and uninterrupted conversations  
  • The opportunity to be intentional about creating rhythms for regular connection back home 
  • Space to discern changes you want to make to help you draw closer to each other and the Lord 
  • A relaxed environment to refresh and strengthen your marriage

How It Works

FAQs

Where are you located?

WinShape Retreat is located on the campus of Berry College in Rome, GA, approximately 1.5 hours northwest of Atlanta, GA. 

What do we need to bring?

The dress for your retreat will be very casual. Please bring comfortable clothing for the entire retreat, including Sunday morning. We recommend at least one pair of pants, a light jacket, and layers in case of colder weather, rain, etc. During most retreats, youll have the opportunity to participate in recreational activities, which require closed-toe/closed-heel shoes (preferably athletic shoes). On Saturday, you’ll have the opportunity to have a professional photo taken by our on-site photographer. If you’d like to bring a nicer outfit you can, though this is not required. Bring all personal toiletries, including any medicines you’re currently taking. You may want to bring a Bible, small book bag, and water bottle. You will not need any money during your stay as lodging, meals, snacks, and programming are included in your registration fee. 

Do you provide counseling at Marriage Retreats?

Our Marriage Retreats do not provide time for one-on-one counseling with the speakers or any other staff members. If you feel you may need more in-depth help or your marriage may be in crisis, please contact us using the button below or check out WinShape Marriage Intensives. 

What does the schedule look like, and will we have free time?

You’ll receive a detailed schedule of the retreat upon arrival, but you can expect breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You’ll have free time throughout the retreat, where you’re welcome to explore the beautiful campus on one of the many walking or biking trails. We also have a variety of other activities and games available. You can play pickleball, play disc golf, fish, hike, play board games, read, relax in a hammock, and more! Feel free to bring your own bikes, equipment, and games, but we also have everything you’ll need available for checkout.

What is your reservation policy?

The full amount of the event will be charged to your credit card at the time of the reservation. Once your card is charged, your payment is nonrefundable. If your plans change, your reservation can be transferred to another event within one year of the originally scheduled experience. This must be done at least 30 days prior to the event, or a $75.00 transfer fee will be assessed. If you do not transfer your reservation prior to the event, you will no longer be able to transfer, and all payments will be forfeited.
