A Weekend To Renew Your Marriage and Make It Loving Again!
Every year, since 2001, hundreds of couples come from all across the nation to attend one of our New Beginning, Marriage Renewal Retreats offered at various locations around the country. Why? Because Cornerstone’s nationally renown New Beginning, Marriage Renewal Retreat offers a proven, effective alternative to traditional, long-term marriage counseling.
How? Over the course of a three-phase, closely guided intensive weekend, our team of marriage counselors, coaches and facilitators walk you and your spouse on a practical “step-by-step” journey utilizing therapeutic, timeless principles, applications and exercises which reveal the hidden barriers that have been harmful to your spouse and your marriage, and have kept your marriage from thriving.
Our program starts before you arrive for the weekend intensive. When you register for the retreat, we ask you and your spouse to each complete a couple’s “Confidential Marital Relationship Assessment” which gives us each spouse’s perspective of their presenting issues. This helps our team of counselors better understand what the focus of the weekend will be in working with you. Then, starting with our first session on Friday evening we begin the retreat by laying the foundation needed to embark upon a weekend journey which is an intensive one, yet which promises to be a very rewarding one.
On day two we begin walking you carefully, step by step through each aspect of a healing process crucial in helping you as a couple achieve a deep level of healing in your hearts and souls, from the least to the most painful of past events in your marriage. Accomplishing this crucial step enables you to then be able to work together with less tension and a greater sense peace and unity. We then guide you through the process of re-establishing your emotional connection as a couple, addressing unresolved issues, using practical tools to rebuild communication, empathy, closeness, and friendship. By the end of the retreat, most couples have experienced major healing in their relationships and have started to become much more secure and connected in their relationships.
Lastly, in phase three, we assist you in developing a personalized plan for making attitude and behavioral life changes, and equipping you with tools to take those crucial next steps that will lead to a healthier, happier marriage going forward. Our after-care program is strategically designed to support the major changes, experiences and skills developed from the the weekend.
We’ve had great success in restoring marriages that have been pulled apart by stress and pressures, conflict and communication difficulties, marriages struggling from a trauma or other major hurts such as an affair, conflict, emotional issues, career or mid-life crisis, or even couples who are separated, or trying to decide whether to stay together. In fact, many of the couples are there due the pain and hopelessness of an affair or other crisis. Based on leading marital research, timeless biblical principles, and our more than 21 years of experience working with thousands of distressed marriages, this high-impact, intensive weekend can change your life, turn your marriage around, and put you on the path to life long love.
Restore…Reconnect….Rediscover more love than you ever thought possible!

Why the Traditional “hour-a-week” counseling approach is Ineffective for Struggling Marriages…
Trying to heal a marriage in 1-hour, weekly counseling sessions is ineffective because most issues can’t be resolved in a 1-hour counseling session. If you had a serious medical condition and needed surgery, would your doctor do the surgery “an hour a week” for 20-30 weeks? Of course not – and that’s why Cornerstone’s intensive, marriage counseling retreat is so effective. It allows for couples needing urgent care to experience deep healing in their relationship over a 3-day, 22-hour marriage intensive weekend. Once this “major surgery” has been accomplished, couples are able to achieve a thorough and speedier recovery in their marriage.
In a 1-hour session, often by the time the couple gets to the root of an issue–it’s time to end the session. Consequently, couples often end up just opening up old wounds and then leaving discouraged, feeling more frustrated and hopeless than before. Yet, over 4 of 5 couples (86% of couples) who come to our Marriage Counseling Retreats leave re-committed to their marriage,” including even those where there’s been infidelity, separation and in many cases a pending divorce.
Cornerstone’s nationally acclaimed marriage counseling retreat consists of a 3-day, 2-night, marriage intensive weekend, along with an optional series of 4 post-weekend, after-care sessions and optional private tele-coaching sessions. The program, developed over 21 years of experience in working with distressed marriages offers an effective proven alternative to traditional marriage counseling.
During the weekend, our team of trained facilitators, coaches and counselors walk you through a guided process including assessments, exercises and activities designed to reveal the hidden barriers that have been keeping your marriage from thriving. You and your spouse will be challenged and empowered to take an honest look at yourself and your marriage, deal with relevant issues in your relationship and rediscover the experience of love in your marriage.
You will be equipped with and practice new ways of communicating, resolving conflicts and make remedial changes by using time-tested tools to put the past behind, re-connect with each other, and rebuild a better, more caring, lasting marriage.
An All-Inclusive Marriage Renewal Experience – Registration includes a premier room in the castle, gourmet meals for two, program materials and nine marriage intensive sessions.
