On this retreat we will use the PACT principles to guide you in overcoming challenges you face as a couple. PACT stands for A Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy®. It was developed out of exciting, cutting-edge research in three areas.
The first is neuroscience, the study of the human brain. Understanding how the brain works provides a physiological basis for understanding how people act and react within relationships. In a nutshell, some areas of your brain are wired to reduce threat and danger and seek security, while others are geared to establish mutuality and loving connection.
The second is attachment theory, which explains the biological need to bond with others. Experiences in early relationships create a blueprint that informs the sense of safety and security you bring to adult relationships. Insecurities that have been carried through life can wreak havoc for a couple if these issues are not resolved.
The third area is the biology of human arousal—meaning the moment-to-moment ability to manage one’s energy, alertness, and readiness to engage. It isn’t necessary to understand the scientific basis of PACT to realize its benefits.
Join us in this romantic, enchanting land where you will learn these powerful fundamental principles, and get to experience them as you explore this splendid region of PORTUGAL.
An Invitation from Stan and Tracey
We are excited about the PORTUGAL Couples’ Retreat! We have worked with Kay and Franco from Global Journeys for the last several years in international settings for couples’ retreats and each has been incredible; they are delightful and will put together a top-notch experience for all of us. One of the things that excites us the most is the amount of time we will have together. Since it will be an intimate group of no more than 18 couples, we will have the opportunity to get to know all of you while experiencing the workshop and the adventures together. Again, this promises to be a special experience and one we are thrilled to share with you. Warmly, Stan and Tracey Tatkin
To support the loving connection of couples being together, Stan and Tracey have chosen to hold the retreat in splendid sites in Porto and the Douro Valley: The renown Yeatman Hotel and the splendid Vintage House.
Apart from their life-transforming sessions, you’ll spend plenty of down-time with Stan and Tracey, exploring the magnificent city of Porto, the Douro Valley and the unique surroundings. You will enjoy some of the world’s best wines and ports.
PORTO is a fascinating and vibrant city that is rapidly becoming one of Western Europe’s most respected tourist destinations. The city boasts an extensive history, interesting and unique attractions, a buzzing nightlife, and outstanding facilities.
The Douro wine valley region valley is the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. First, the river carved the deep valleys out of the land and then settlers transformed the schist mountains into soil and walls and planted the vines… green in summer, flame-colored in autumn. With knowledge handed down from generation to generation, they inclined the terraces to expose the vines to the rays of the sun which give the grapes the warmth that the wine craves. It was from the fruits of the land and the settlers’ labor that this unique wine and landscape were made.
