With society demands, packed personal and professional schedules, often at times multiple preparation sessions doesn't align with these demands. Engaged Encounter is the ONLY program that satisfies this requirement in just one single, weekend retreat designed especially for the two of you. Meals and all materials are included!!! No distractions from the outside world so you can concentrate on building the solid foundation required for a long lasting healthy marriage!
We recognize that helping you save costs AND providing you the ability to attend our weekend retreat is important.
We also offer an option (Phoenix Weekend in English only) for you to stay overnight on Saturday at our facility for a small cost if you are coming in from out of town or would normally have a long commute home. This option is for an additional fee and coordinated by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org AFTER you receive your confirmation letter. On site overnight accommodations are same gender, dormitory style accommodations.
