The Marriage Restoration Project was created 20s years ago by Rabbi Shlomo and Rivka Slatkin’s whose own marriage hanging on by a string. When Imago Therapy helped revitalize their relationship, they wanted to help other couples save their marriages too, and went on to study and specialize in Imago Therapy; authoring books and offering this unique workshop that is based on the work of the co-founder of Imago Therapy, Dr. Harville Hendrix.


By getting out of their daily routine and into a relaxing setting, couples are able to focus on each other to strengthen their relationship. The setting at Naia Resort and Spa , one of the Caribbean’s newest luxury resorts helps set the tone for the weekend. Nestled on a private 200-acre reserve on the Placencia Peninsula, Naia is an oasis of calm in a chaotic world. Featuring 35 beachfront bungalows, Naia welcomes couples with personalized service and a focus on Belizean culture.


The price of the Getting the Love You Want retreat is $5,500 per couple.
