What is a Couples Retreat?
In support of couples who desire to transform their relationship with themselves and each other, Jonathan has created the Couples Retreat.
The Couples Retreat is designed to restore and/or deepen the connection to your emotions, heart, and spirit and empower you to connect and communicate from those sacred places with your partner.
The outcome of the retreat is healing, transformation, empowerment and renewed intimacy – with yourself and partner.
Retreat Services Include:
Communication breakdown is the number one problem blocking intimacy and transformation in relationships. Therefore, you will learn powerful and ceremonial communication techniques that will connect you and your partner to the sacred dimensions of your emotions, heart, and spirit so that you can discuss your unresolved grievances, wounds, and desires in a good way.
Jonathan will provide with a Do and Don’t list that enables you to successfully “hold loving space” for your partner when they are emotionally triggered and discharging.
The outcome of the communication training is confidence and empowerment to communicate in a way that brings you closer together rather than further apart.
Body Memory Recall (BMR) Healing Sessions
BMR is an internationally acclaimed form of transformational bodywork, that Jonathan Tripodi developed in 1997. BMR uses enlightened touch to help a person get conscious of where in their body they are holding on to stress, pain, and emotion from the past.
By applying sensitive touch, pressure, and stretch to the body’s hardened, tense and restricted areas, the BMR approach helps a person to come out of survival mode and inter a self-healing state in which they can express rather than suppress their accumulated body memories. The outcome is a body and person who is freer of tension, at peace with the past and vitally open in their total energy.
Most individuals enter relationships with body memory from their childhood. Unresolved wounding is often a persons weak link in achieving happiness and fulfillment with themself and their relationships. BMR provides an incredible opportunity to begin or deepen transformation of past wounding.
Sedona is one of the scenic wonders of the world. Millions travel to Sedona each year to experience the majesty and healing of Sedona’s Red Rock Mountains.
Jonathan has been a retreat guide in Sedona for 20+ years. He will take you into the more remote and powerful areas of Sedona so that you can absorb the healing power of nature, the elements, and beauty of Mother Earth.
Bring hiking shoes and a small backpack/camelback. There is no substitute for the healing power of Nature which is why Jonathan has incorporated this vital element of healing into the retreat. While on the land, Jonathan will provide you with a private ceremony to deepen your healing with yourself and partner!

Sedona, City of Peace & Scenic Wonder of the World
Sedona, City of Peace – One the Scenic Wonders of the World
Millions of people from around the world visit Sedona each year to rejuvenate their body, mind, and soul. Sedona’s Buddhist community has helped the city to earn special recognition from the United Nations as a “City of Peace.”
Many years ago, Native Americans recognized Sedona’s healing energy and spirit and traveled there for sacred vision quests. The Red Rock Mountains emit strong earth energy, referred to by locals as “vortices”. In between or after your BMR sessions, you can go for hikes, explore the energy vortexes, and swim in the spring/summer waters of Oak Creek Canyon. The 5-day retreat package includes guided hikes, climbs and healing ceremonies on the land with Jonathan. You may also add them to your 3-day or Custom package.
Before your retreat, Jonathan recommends that you read his book Freedom From Body Memory : Awaken the Courage to Let Go of the Past Couples that read the book are more informed and therefore experience better results from their BMR healing sessions. The book is available at Amazon.com in hardcopy, Kindle, and audio formats.
Lastly, it is recommended each individual schedule a 1-hour phone consultation with Jonathan prior to the retreat. This will allow him to get to know each of you, the challenges you are experiencing, and your desires for change.
