The Ultimate Relationship Workshop

April 22-29, 2023 | Pura Vida Retreat and Spa | Costa Rica

You’re invited on a 7-day journey, to immerse yourself into an idyllic mountain spa and resort in the heart of beautiful Costa Rica, to learn how to cultivate the relationships you’ve dreamt of. Join Dr. John Schinnerer and Joree Rose, LMFT (not only are they relationship experts, but they’re also engaged to one another!) on an adventure into love, understanding yourself and what you need, and ultimately how to create the happiness that you know is possible.


We’ve got a question for you. Do you want…

  • to feel more appreciated?
  • your home environment to feel relaxed and supportive?
  • greater connection and intimacy?
  • to feel honored, rather than criticized?
  • to be on a path of growth, self-exploration and play?
  • more tools to get through the daily stressors that affect all aspects of your life?
  • to be happy and content?

Joree and John have heard heart-rending stories for over 20 years of their clients feeling alone, defeated and disconnected in their lives and relationships. And they have taught hundreds of people simple and powerful tools to improve their lives.

The goal is happiness…

And the good news is that happiness is possible!

In this exclusive, intimate seven-day retreat, you’ll learn how to understand yourself – what you’re feeling and what you need – along with how to understand the opposite sex and what might be underlying their behaviors and patterns.

You’ll learn frameworks for effective communication, how to create ongoing connection and intimacy, how to turn down the volume on anger and resentment, build a lasting connection that can weather any life challenge, and so much more!

Joree and John use the latest relational insights and research, presented in a fun, and easy-to-learn fashion. We promise you’ll leave this retreat feeling empowered that you are capable of having happy, thriving and supportive relationships.

The breathtakingly beautiful resort of Pura Vida will aid you in feeling relaxed and present; by stepping out of your day-to-day busyness you will make the commitment to yourself that you and your relationships are a priority.

During this life-changing retreat, you will…

  • Strengthen your bonds of intimacy, love and friendship
  • Understand what drives you and the opposite sex, and how this can impact your relationship
  • Turn up the heat on your intimacy
  • Learn how to expertly maneuver the inevitable conflicts
  • Discover your deepest values and life goals
  • Turn down the volume on anger, resentment, and grudges
  • Let go of the past so you can live peacefully in the present

Beautiful Costa Rica awaits…
