Our Making Love Retreat in Montville during May was a truly beautiful experience for us and for the seven couples who attended. With the sudden cold snap the couples made good use of the fireplaces and spa baths in their cottages, and once again our chefs Georgina and Sharmalee satisfied everybody's taste buds with their delicious food.

In May Janet's Tedx Noosa talk "It's Called Making Love Isn't It" was made available to be viewed on The Conscious Heart. This is an excellent presentation by Janet providing a very brief introduction to creating a deeply loving sexual relationship. Many have been sharing it with family and friends and in particular, parents with their children. Janet's talk may also be viewed on Tedx Noosa along with the other sixteen presentations.

My book Six Initiatives for Men remains free online, and is drawing as much interest from the women as the men. It takes less than an hour to read and provides a sound introduction to some of the work Janet and I do in our retreats. Please continue to share.

Making Love Retreat

Making Love Retreat
Sun 10th to
Sat 16th November

This retreat truly is a precious gift a couple gives to their relationship. Feedback from a participant in our May Retreat:

"My heart is now open and my need for "old fashioned" sex has dissolved. I just love being with my partner. Thank you, thank you, thank you. This retreat has saved me from a life of loneliness."

Being Love Retreat

Being Love Retreat
Sun 29th September to
Wed 2nd October.

We have had an increasing number of couples with small children expressing interest in our 3 day Being Love Retreat, so we have decided to shift venue to where we can take up to 8 couples and employ caterers allowing us to be more available to the participants.

In the Being Love Retreat we explore key elements vital for healthy relating and introduce an approach to communication that helps develop intimacy and love.

This will be the LAST TIME the Being Love Retreat will be run at $1450 as costs will increase with our new decisions. At this price especially, we need a minimum of 5 couples. So please let us know ASAP so we can confirm bookings with the retreat centre and chefs.
