- A Couples Retreat for Medical Professionals and their Spouses or Life Partners
with Albert Bellg Ph.D. and Laurin Bellg MD
at Monte Alverno Retreat Center, 1000 N. Ballard Rd., Appleton
Saturday, May 18, 2013
The retreat will include group interaction and discussion, guided meditation, poetry and music, journaling, and time for exploration and reflection with your partner at a peaceful retreat center on the Fox River. This one-day retreat is not couples therapy, though - the retreat will not focus on helping couples deal with emotionally difficult personal and relationship issues. What it will do, however, is help you reconnect with what is good about your relationship, and perhaps discover ways to make it better.
Both your attendence and what you choose to say will be confidential, and we will follow guidelines that respect each other’s experience. No one is required to share personal information or stories, and we refrain from fixing, advising, or correcting each other. We want this to be a time for exploration, renewal and life support - and we’ll have some fun as well!
Who, where and when
Albert Bellg, Ph.D. and Laurin Bellg, MD have been working on what it is to be a couple dealing with the satisfactions and stresses of working in the medical community for nearly 12 years. We are pleased to explore with you and your life partner during this retreat what it is to support each other both as a spouse and as a professional. You also will discover some practical ways for dealing with individual and relationship stress in a mindful and compassionate way.
Life Support will take place at the beautiful Monte Alverno Retreat Center along the Fox River in Appleton. Please note that even though it is being held at a Catholic retreat center, this retreat is not based in a religious tradition and is open to those with all beliefs.
Registration is at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, and the retreat will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. The price of $185 per couple includes lunch, fruit, snacks and very good coffee and tea throughout the day.
