The Sacred Space | Couples Retreats
NOTE: We conduct individual intensives for couples tailored to fit your needs. Retreats typically take place twice a year or as needed. Individual intensives can be done over a period of 2-7 days depending on the needs of the couple. Richard Blankenship and Dr. Janice Stevens also conduct therapeutic disclosure intensives.

The Sacred Space weekends exist to address the importance of intimacy development in marriages. More information can be found online at www.capstoneatlanta.com.
Intimacy is about connecting and being real with each other. The focus of our couple’s weekends is on finding ways to strengthen intimate connections in marriage. Rebuilding trust, respect, safety, and hope will help create relationships in which intimacy can grow. It’s much deeper than communication and conflict resolution. Our activities are designed to remove barriers to intimacy and help you reconnect in your marriage. They will also deepen and strengthen the bonds between husbands and wives.
What Makes The Sacred Space Unique?
The Sacred Space retreats are experiential. This means that you will be an active part of the process. Many marriage enrichment seminars involve sitting and listening to lectures and taking home a notebook full of material which is rarely used again. Our experiential weekends for couples will not involve long lectures. Instead of sending you home to do the work, we “coach” you through it while you are at the retreat. This work is done under the guidance of our staff of therapists. We limit the size of the retreats to no more than 5 couples per small group in order to maximize the time we can spend working with each couple.
Schedule and Fees
Retreats typically start at 1:00 p.m. on Friday and conclude no later than 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. We try to locate close to major airports in settings appropriate for the work that we do. We only give out the exact location of the retreat to registered participants in order to protect confidentiality. Fees depend on the setting for the workshops. Some are done as an all-inclusive package with meals and lodging. Others are done where participants provide their own meals and lodging and may commute from home. When we use a retreat center, we normally use state parks, or hotels with suites and convention meeting space. The cost for the weekend will normally include all meals, lodging, materials, and activities. Exceptions will be listed on individual retreat flyers. It’s best if couples arrange for childcare and stay at the retreat site, even if they are local. We will work with you and make adjustments if this isn’t possible. Scholarship funds are sometimes available.
Discounted rates are available to those who register at least 30 days in advance. Due to commitments to retreat facilities, we cannot refund fees within 30 days of the retreat. Registration can be done over the phone, email, or fax. Upon receipt of your registration and fees, we will send you paperwork to complete prior to coming to the retreat. The retreat location is given only to registered participants. To register contact us at
