Marriage & Leadership

We offer an annual, 5 day intensive marriage retreat for married couples in cross-cultural leadership positions.

Retreat Overview

This retreat is run and organized by the SentWell team in Málaga but we are delighted to welcome Dr Tim and Karen Hogan as expert facilitators.

We understand marriage to be a profoundly difficult, rewarding and growth-producing spiritual quest. Both Tim's professional work and our own marriage have found powerful transformation implementing the insights from Imago Relationship Therapy and a Psychobiological Approach to Couple's Therapy (PACT).

—Tim & Karen Hogan

You will be invited to ….

  • Bring back the fun

  • Strengthen your friendship

  • Learn to listen to each other with compassion

  • Befriend conflict as a pathway to growth and deeper connection

  • Deepen your spiritual friendship

Our goal is to have you leave the weekend feeling refreshed and reconnected. 

Therefore, we invite you to bring:

  • An open mind

  • Very comfortable clothes for movement and stretching

  • An expectation to relax, learn and reconnect with your partner.

We would like to welcome all couples in full-time ministry living cross-culturally whether they are struggling or just want to strengthen their marriage. There will be some large group teaching, some experiential learning, and lots of time for the couples to practice building connections with each other .
