Intensive Goal Setting for Couples

5 day/4 night retreat. Event will take place in a world class hotel. Each couple will have a private room.  Limit 16 rooms.

Cost: $6995 all inclusive retreat. Lodging, food, and all activities included. Also included one full year of follow-up care to help you meet your new years resolutions set during the retreat: a combination of classes, group sessions, and one on one help. Retreat mixes intensive one-on-one coaching with intimate small group experiences. 

This week long event takes you through the process of self directed positive change, using Seth Atwater’s own personal method (External Experiential Processing) and The Change Wheel, developed over the past decade while working with hundreds of couples, and using Charles Dickens novel “A Christmas Carol”.

The event also incorporates change through the atonement of Jesus Christ, and is designed to help coupes from all Christian religions and backgrounds. We believe that all true change is brought about by turning to the Savior, and we will be directing you towards Him and His power to create a mighty change of heart.

Showboat Branson Belle

For over 20 years, the Showboat Branson Belle has given guests a chance to leave their cares at the dock for two relaxing hours of adventure and entertainment. One of the most enticing features of a cruise aboard the Showboat Branson Belle is the opportunity to spend time on scenic Table Rock Lake.

An extended intermission between the meal and the beginning of the live show gives guests time to sit back, relax and take in the scenic views. Whether you’re sitting in one of the comfy Adirondack chairs, strolling along one of the four grand decks or looking through the window from your table, you’ll be able to enjoy the gorgeous scenery of the Ozarks from one of the most unique vantage points in Branson.

It has been made into numerous movies over the years and is one of today’s most popular Christmas time specials.



Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring children to the retreat?

Generally we try to make the retreat free from home environmental situation such as child care, house cleaning, work, etc. We do understand that some mothers have nursing children and cannot leave them for a full week. You can contact us on a case by case basis, if you as a parent have special needs. If we agree that a child should be brought to the retreat, we will offer childcare at an additional fee.
