How the retreat works

There will be six hours of therapy per day (with an hour lunch break) with Rabbi Shlomo Slatkin, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Imago Relationship Therapist or another Imago therapist. They will spend the time working one-on-one with you and your spouse.

Couples undergo therapy using a calm, clear, safe no-blame, no shame communication process that infuses new life and hope into a marriage in 2 days by cutting down on the fighting, the reactivity, the tense eggshell-like atmosphere you’ve been experiencing, and creating an environment where you can actually talk about the important things and be heard.

Timing of sessions

The Marriage Restoration Project is based in Pikesville, Maryland (EST, UTC -5. EDT, UTC -4 starts March 13, 2022). The Marriage Restoration Project team will schedule the sessions on two consecutive days that are mutually agreed upon.

How Imago Relationship Therapy works

Not all therapists are focused on creating an environment that feels “safe” between the two of you. You know this if you’ve ever gone to counseling and you left angrier with each other than before, resulting in your partner refusing to ever come back! What is lacking for you in your marriage is that feeling of safety. Trust. Being heard without judgment and criticism.

If you can make your partner feel comfortable enough to share, a whole new realm of possibility will open up for you. That means listening to them without criticizing, without blaming, without shaming them; but deeply hearing what they say with no blame or shame.

Start communication habits at home

Consistent communication that doesn’t include any BLAME or SHAME is critical to restoring love, preserving the marriage that you’ve worked so hard to build. Are you wanting that? No doubt if you’re here, you are wishing that this is how you could communicate! Then you wouldn’t even need to think about separation or divorce! When people feel safe around each other they no longer need to act out of survival mode. There is no power struggle. Everything you’ve seen with your spouse up until now has most likely been them behaving the way they do because they feel unsafe.

And the same goes for your behavior.

If your spouse…

deeply heard your needs

supported you in every way

challenged you to be the best you could be

gave you everything you had hoped and dreamed you could get from the most important relationship of your life

Would you be happy?

Would you be calm?

Would your life flow?

Would you feel at ease?

You would. And it would be because of the safe environment that your home would have.

Why get intensive couples counseling?

Your marriage can become joyful again without the hassle of months of therapy to determine whether or not you even WANT to stay together. You don’t have time for that! You’re busy!

You can stop the resentment, distrust, and lingering doubts that you have about your partner.

It is possible to know with confidence and certainty that whatever decision you make it’s the right one.

What if you’re not sure that your marriage can even BE saved?

Part of the intensive experience is for you to learn about YOURSELF- you own relationship history, your past unmet needs, your ability to communicate and be successful in ALL areas of your life. This is something that all partners need regardless of their spouse’s desire to change.

Even if your partner doesn’t change or it looks like you still desire to consciously uncouple, you are always going to have to be in communication with your spouse especially if you have children. Your ability to communicate and go through life consciously is critical to your success in life!

Day one: Restoring Hope – 6 hours to open up your eyes to the realization that your marriage has the potential to be different

  • “Personal relationship history” – Explore your personal relationship history through written exercises that will open up your eyes to your relationship stumbling blocks.
  • “Why you chose your spouse” – Learn about the missing parts of yourself and know how to reclaim them.
  • “Relationship frustration” – Experience deep healing around a difficult issue with your spouse using the Imago Dialogue practice which is a safe and comfortable way to communicate.
  • “Intentional dialogue” – Put a new tool in your toolbox for dealing with all of life’s challenges and difficult relationships.
  • “Identification of the 3 relationship stages” – Explore the secret agenda of relationships and “diagnose” which stage of relationship you are in and how that is currently affecting your marriage and what to do about it.

Day two: Hope becomes reality – 6 hours to turn your hope for your new relationship into reality

  • “Living Gratefully” – Harness the power of gratitude, naturally flourishing into becoming a more successful and appreciative person.
  • “Dream Up Your Relationship Vision”– Craft a vision that you can successfully live out for your new future together.
  • “Action Plan for Getting Your Needs Met” – Discover what makes you feel cared for and loved and develop a plan to get those needs met.
  • “Receive the Love that Your Partner is Sending You” – Diagnose your love language, learning how to use your love language and the love language of others more effectively to get and to give the love that you want.
  • “Flooding” – Shift the negative energy in a 5-minute process.

After the retreat: 8 (90-minute) follow-up sessions to integrate what you learned in the initial 2-day retreat (in-person or Skype)

Your 2 Day No Blame, No Shame Marriage Restoration Retreat was amazing but you worry about things going back to the same old same old. You now have newfound hope for your relationship. You learned great skills. But what happens when life gets back to “normal”? You’ll want to make sure that you get the greatest long-term results from this retreat.

The best way to integrate is to have follow-ups that provide accountability until your skills are firmly grounded in your day-to-day life. The Marriage Restoration Project is here for you every step of the way to work towards your long-term relationship success. You’ll want a solution to backsliding and the best prevention for falling back into bad habits. These eight sessions are the best way to keep up your new hope and progress.


Private member site that consists of a self-guided core curriculum of 5 modules that lead you through a step-by-step process towards learning how to be married in the best way possible. Each module contains an audio component for on-the-go listening, slide decks for at-a-glance summary, video presentations, transcripts for easy reading, and worksheets for implementation. Includes The Marriage Restoration Project's best-selling book The 5 Step Action Plan to a Healthy and Happy Marriage and the movie where you can see hands-on how to apply what you learned.

Think of this marriage intensives as a private getaway where you and your spouse have the opportunity to work exclusively with The Marriage Restoration Project for six hours a day.

Unlike a marriage workshop where you participate in a group setting with other couples, the retreat will give the privacy you need to deal with some of the most painful and personal issues you are facing in your relationship.

The Marriage Restoration Project's mission is to save marriages so it is in their best interest that you succeed. You can with their guidance and your commitment.


Even though the therapist is a rabbi, religion is not incorporated in sessions unless requested by the couple. The Marriage Restoration Project practices Imago Relationship Therapy and their counseling is not faith-based. With that said, they do have traditional values in promoting strong marriages and they do believe in working to keep a couple together when possible.
