Love Wins! Exclusive Retreat for LGBTQ+ Couples Soul 2 Soul Global welcomes you to this unique opportunity designed to create healthier relationships. Love Wins! is a weekend-long couple retreat that combines LGBTQ+ specific coaching with a luxurious resort experience. About this event: Couples, be honest--Do you feel like you and your partner are speaking different languages? Are you more like roommates than lovers? Can't find the middle ground between penny-pinching and splurging? Struggling to thrive as an LGBTQ+ Couple in a heterocentric world? Ever wish your relationship came with a "How To" Manual? You're not alone. Even if you've been together since before "Netflix and Chill" was a thing, creating a successful partnership is challenging. But just because improving your relationship requires work, doesn't mean it has to be hard. Love Wins! is a fun, interactive weekend retreat designed to help you identify and correct the core issues plaguing your relationship so you can live a happier, healthier life together. During the retreat, you and your partner will learn how to Communicate using the Rosetta Stone of Relationships-the love languages. Crank up the heat in the bedroom. Reach a happy money medium. Manage stressors unique to LGBTQ+ couples. Create a vision board to plan your #couplegoals and how to get there. Most importantly, you'll feel butterflies again when you think about the person you've spent your life with.
