Join Us on this fascinating adventure as you experience the possibilities of a truly loving relationship while enjoying an ambiance of luxury and comfort.


Envision yourself at an enchanting abbey/hotel surrounded by vineyards and ancient lands in a sacred cultural heritage site and spending time with Stan and Tracey as you enhance your relationship.

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 at this romantic,  enchanting Abbey where you will learn these powerful fundamental principles, and get to experience them as you experience this splendid region of SPAIN.



An Invitation from Stan and Tracey

We are excited about the SPAIN 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 29 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: a former convent, a renovated abbey, and a palace hotel. Look at the amazing architecture and elegance of these world-renown establishments.

Apart from their life-transforming sessions, you’ll spend plenty of down-time with Stan and Tracey, exploring two magnificent small cities – Haro and Valladolid – enjoying of some of the world’s best wines, experiencing flamenco, immersing yourself in the 2000 sq meter Spa with its healing treatments, and even visiting Madrid for a day, at the one of Spain’s finest hotels.

You will land in Bilbao, the de facto capital of the Basque country, and then spend two nights in the recently renovated Hotel Los Augustinos, one of Spain’s best 4-star establishments with spacious bedrooms and magnificent architecture, including a cloister and chapel, and some of the world’s best wine (and wine museum).

We then head off to spend five nights at the the 5-star Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine, set like a jewel amongst vineyards, with an incredible spa and world-renown wellness center.

For our final day and night, we move onto the Gran Melia Palacio de los Duques, one of the Leading Hotels of the World, a former 19th century palace surrounded by a 1000 sq meter garden – in a prime location in central Madrid and a short walk to some of the city’s most important sites. We end our 8-day trip with an evening of scrumptious Spanish cuisine and some of the best flamenco dancing in the city.
