Experience
Fall in love with love again.

Reset is an intimate getaway in a spectacular setting with other couples who are going somewhere and getting somewhere in their relationship.

A thrilling mix of romantic escape and deep work on your relationship, Reset is an unforgettable experience, masterfully designed to help you reconnect, refocus and reimagine your relationship.

It starts with a beautiful luxury destination where ordinary life and time stand still, so you can delve, deal, discover, dine, dance and dream together as a couple.

Immersive. Intensive. Incredible.

Reset is a journey back to lost dreams, forgotten promises, first dates and endless possibilities. A secure connection and anchored belonging. Before the wounds. Behind the armour. Beyond the grind.

Our approach is to create an exquisitely delightful, wildly supportive, deeply transformative relational, emotional and sensory experience where you and your partner can take unhurried time and unworried space to process, plan and play.

Over three paradigm shifting, trajectory setting, destiny defining days, you can begin the exhilarating work of moving forward with new clarity, shared vision, and a strategic blueprint for the love and relationship you really want.

Chemistry
Dream. Desire. Design.

Great relationship is art. A creative collision. A chemistry of contrasts. Passion and pain. Glorious and gruelling. Sometimes fireworks. Sometimes dumpster fire.

The central question of this weekend is what do you want? For yourself. For your partner. For each other. And how do you get it? How do you want the next chapter of your love story to feel, to flow, to function?

Reset is an exhilarating synergy of people, process and place colliding together to set you up for success—as defined by you and your partner.

The Couples

You are the architect of your relationship. You set the agenda for your weekend experience. For some couples, a tweak. For others an overhaul. For some, the next chapter. For others a new beginning.

Reset is for couples of all status, stripes and stages who share a spark of desire to grow into the partners and lovers they may not yet be.

Like the inspiring couples you’ll meet and journey alongside on this magnificent weekend, you and your partner are some version of…

Committed to being together.

Motivated to deepen or repair your relationship.

Passionate about life and tenacious about love.

Determined to create a strong, safe, satisfying partnership.

Driven by desire for personal growth and powerful connection.

and possibly…

Dissatisfied with some aspect of your relationship.

Distressed, strained, sidelined, or stuck in unhealthy patterns.

Drained from uneven effort, low intimacy, or poor communication.

Disappointed by lost dreams and forgotten promises.

Restless, stale and lonely, despite your togetherness.

The Sessions

Reset sessions are a powerful mix of teaching, coaching, mentorship, storytelling, discussions and exercises. Live, raw, real, in the moment, Reset is not a seminar or workshop. We listen, we engage, we unpack your dreams and unravel knots in your relationship.

Each session is a gold mine, as you delve and discover with your partner, break new ground with your hosts, and engage with the other couples. You’ll receive vision, clarity, insight, wisdom and resources to launch you into the next chapter of your love story.

Rocket fuel for couples.

It takes rocket fuel to break free from the gravitational pull of our pain, our past and our problems to create and sustain a life and relationship both you and your partner really want, love and enjoy.

You’ll learn master strategies, tools and techniques that immediately improve your relationship and, practiced over time, will predictably and consistently help you…

Create a mutually exciting, empowering, expansive vision for your love and relationship.

Design and inhabit your emotional dream home—a safe, strong, stable refuge where you both feel fully seen, heard, appreciated, accepted, included and embraced.

Align and fulfill your intentions, direction, dreams and desires.

Deal with unaddressed and unresolved conflict and pain without hurting or triggering each other.

Embrace inevitable pain so you can feast on the indelible security, peace and joy of secure attachment and anchored belonging.

Elevate every interaction with your partner into productive, affirming encounters.

Receive and give more of what you both want in life and love, and less of what you don’t want.

Cease destructive conflict, clear the clutter, can the confusion and cool the competition.

Experience sustained full throttled, open hearted, fearless love, passion, excitement, intimacy and connection.

Forge a true partnership anchored in a common foundation, collaboration, connection, confidence and contentment.

Face dark times together and refuse to be divided by them.

Build a deep, rich, long lasting relationship filled with friendship and closeness perfectly balanced with freedom and independence.

The Setting

Reset is a boutique experience that embodies our uncompromising passion for love, friendship, openness, hospitality, quality, excellence, simplicity and a taste for good food.

Every detail gets our personalized attention. Our venues are carefully selected for their warm, elegant atmosphere, exceptional comfort, regional charm, professional service and exquisite food showcasing flavours and ingredients of the region.

Your relationship is the guest of honour. We prepare everything as if welcoming you into our home, so that you and your partner feel seen, cared for and optimally supported as you focus on each other.

A strong, safe, satisfying relationship with someone who knows me deeply, sees me fully, and loves me unconditionally.

We didn’t think it was possible. Not for us, anyway. Not after 20 years of insecurity, instability, distrust, disappointment, loss and betrayal. Following our third separation, we were at a crossroads. We decided it was time to rise up and reset. We were determined to break ground.

We rebuilt our relationship into our emotional dream home.

Brick by brick, one brave conversation at a time, we have learned to take good care of our love. To value her. To invest in her. To reset her often.

Falling in love is a sprint. Staying in love is a marathon. Our 35 year love story has been invigorating and exhausting. In every sense, she has taken our breath away.

We have fallen in love with love again. The kind of love we always craved. Strong. Safe. Satisfying. Secure. A love that supplies us with everything we need to weather the storms she leads us through.

The relationship of your dreams starts with a dream for your relationship.

What relationship dreams do you and your partner want to go after? What kind of love are you still craving from each other? What are you ready to move into in your relationship?

Reset weekend is about dreams and possibilities. And yours, like ours, are endless and unique. Come reimagine your emotional dream home.
