The Strengthening Your Relationship and Enhancing Sexual Intimacy live workshops are both challenging and life-changing.

Join Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife in June 2022 in Hillsboro, Oregon for a life- and marriage-transforming experience! This engaging workshop presents ways to understand and address difficult relationship dynamics that interfere with marital happiness and intimacy. 

The material presented during this retreat will help you see your own contributions to challenging interactions, and teach you how to better self-regulate, more effectively communicate, and deepen your friendship and connection. Dr. Finlayson-Fife will give you new ways to understand your challenges and tools for creating substantive change, with exceptional instruction and meaningful interactions with participants.

The Strengthening Your Relationship workshop will take place 6/9/2022-6/11/2022 in picturesque Hillsboro, Oregon. 

The Enhancing Sexual Intimacy workshop will take place 6/13/2022-6/15/2022 in picturesque Hillsboro, Oregon.

For maximum benefit, participants are encouraged to stay for both sessions for a focused six-day experience. If needed, participants can sign up for either one of the two segments. 

Take advantage of this opportunity to interact with and get input from Dr. Finlayson-Fife over multiple days, while being immersed in an entirely new way of understanding and addressing your relationship challenges.

A lot of couples get stuck in unhappy, painful patterns in their relationships, but don’t know how to truly make things better. Many people seek help, but either can’t afford good input or spend lots of time and money on marriage therapies that don’t get to the core of their challenges. 

What is so valuable about Dr. Finlayson-Fife’s Couples’ Retreat is that she provides couples like you with a powerful method to make sense of and fundamentally address relationship struggles. The material gives people an entirely new way to understand what is happening in their relationship, and clarity about what they can do to change. 

The complete immersion in exceptional material over multiple days is far more powerful in affecting meaningful change than most weekly therapies can provide.

Reviews From Retreat Participants

  • My husband and I attended last October.  Beautiful insights.  Excellent dialogue. Growth as an individual and as a couple.  SO AMAZING!  If you are thinking of going...DO IT.  My husband and I are hearts full GRATEFUL towards Jennifer!  (And if you're thinking 'I'll just purchase the course online' --True, you can do that.  You can learn from JFF that way, too.  But this time together, away from the regulars of life, is as they say, PRICELESS)."

  • Jennifer, your sexuality course is excellent---truly exceptional.  It has made such a difference for me and my wife.  We are in a better place than we've ever been because of it.  The work you are doing is so needed, and so important in the Mormon world.  Thank you, again.

  • “My husband and I attended your week long couples’ workshop in SLC last August. I just wanted to write and tell you that it has completely changed our marriage. We had tried therapy and self-help books unsuccessfully and seriously considered separation, but your course entirely changed our perspectives and helped us truly face ourselves and our destructive habits. We still have things to learn, but we have come so far as a couple and it is largely due to you and the principles you taught us. We just want to say how grateful we are. ... ”

  • Thank you for teaching this class. We had a wonderful experience with both the "Strengthening Your Relationship" and the "Enhancing Sexuality" courses. I found the assignments particularly helpful. Going through them allowed me to process what I learned in the classes and apply it to myself. Doing that helped me identify a lot of things I need to confront to improve my relationship to my own sexuality and my sexual connection with my husband. I feel like I'm leaving the course with tools in my tool box to deal with my avoidance of sex, a problem I now see more clearly.

  • I've been meaning to write and thank you for both of your classes. ... I can honestly say that your classes have invigorated and reinvented our marriage. Both of us have been happier than we've been in years --- probably the happiest we've ever been. Our daughter said to me recently that she noticed that my husband and I have been so much more positive and happy. I cannot tell you how wonderful this all is! Just know that you are doing really good, important, lasting work! Thank you so much

  • “We loved the venue and accommodations. Hotel Terra was great! Jennifer was personable, professional, and spot-on when it came to presenting, teaching, answering questions, gauging the time, and giving helpful and applicable examples. These courses are game changers in all the BEST ways.”
