Are you looking for an engaging, fun, and effective Couples Retreat? The Gottman Method of couples support, developed by Doctors John and Julie Gottman, is known for its evidence-based techniques which resulted from observing the conflict and interaction patterns of thousands of married couples. You can learn more about the Gottman Relationship Method and supporting research by visiting the Gottman Institute Website. At Recharge Newport, you will work with Dr. Elle and Laura, who have trained using the Gottman Methods and are both certified in implementing the Gottman Method. At Recharge Newport, we have also discovered that their powerful research can be combined with expressive arts and a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to create a fun and effective method for reconnecting couples. Here's how:
1. **Communication Skills**: The Gottman Method emphasizes improving communication. Expressive arts, like creative writing or drawing, can serve as enjoyable mediums for couples to express their feelings and thoughts. This creative expression fosters better understanding and communication.
2. **Emotional Awareness**: Holistic approaches encourage emotional awareness. Incorporating mindfulness and meditation can help couples connect with their emotions and, in turn, understand each other's feelings more deeply.
3. **Playful Activities**: Couples can engage in playful and expressive activities, such as creating musical playlists and making vision boards, to rekindle the sense of fun and spontaneity in their relationship, which is often recommended in the Gottman Method.
4. **Exploration of Values and Beliefs**: The holistic approach includes exploring shared values and beliefs. This can be integrated with the Gottman Method's principles of shared meaning and dreams for the future, helping couples align their spiritual and life goals.
5. **Physical Connection**: Mind-body-spirit practices often focus on physical well-being. Integrating yoga or partner exercises can enhance physical connection and intimacy within the relationship, in line with the Gottman Method's emphasis on affection and intimacy.
6. **Mindful Conflict Resolution**: Couples can incorporate mindfulness techniques when resolving conflicts, allowing them to stay present and considerate during disagreements, a key aspect of the Gottman Method.
By blending the Gottman Method with expressive arts and a holistic mind-body-spirit approach, couples can enjoy a creative and enriching journey of self-discovery and reconnection, making the process both fun and effective.
