custom retreats for individuals, couples, and families 

We create custom 2-7 day retreats to jump start your shift from being stuck in old patterns, to feeling fully alive and aligned with your values, as an individual. We work with couples to shift from feeling disconnected at times, to communicating compassionately, connecting consciously, increasing intimacy, and building their bond. Finally, we help parents shift from being stuck in power struggles, to being in collaboration with their kids, creating a sense that everyone is on the same team.

We will offer guidance, tools, and skills that will allow you to go home feeling connected to each other and with your spark re-ignited!

fUNCTIONAL fAMILY

Do you find yourself short tempered with your family at times? Are you unsure of how to deal with conflicts or power struggles in a way that will feel good for everyone involved? Many of us wish our parents had provided us a model of what a well functioning family life looks like.  Although they did the best that they could, we may find ourselves in need of more guidance, skills, and tools in order to truly thrive in our life and in all our relationships.  We help parents shift from being stuck in power struggles, to being in collaboration with their kids, creating a sense that everyone is on the same team. We will work with you to create a customized road map to help your family to function optimally. You and your partner will have a chance to rejuvenate in the serenity of a beautiful natural setting and return home with a cohesive vision of how your family can truly thrive!

Ivy Bluffs Retreats combine personalized workshop time, with time to rest and enjoy the serenity of the woods, mountains, and nearby rivers. Whether on the porch, observing the wildlife; by the woodstove, getting lost in a book; or in the jacuzzi, enjoying a relaxing soak, our retreat cabin provides the perfect surroundings for a nourishing and transformative retreat. 

We are located near Asheville, NC, which has amazing food and live music options. For those that would like to explore, we are minutes from the Ivy and French Broad Rivers, where you can kayak, tube, whitewater, swim and fish. There are many nearby trails, including the Appalachian Trail. We are close to Hot Springs, where you can soak in a mineral bath, as well as ski/snowboard and snow tubing resorts in the winter. Every season has appeal in our gorgeous mountains!


"Wow! Gina and Coy are amazing! I am so grateful to be involved in both their couples coaching sessions as well as individual Inner Presence sessions. They each have such a sweet and truly compassionate presence and such deep insight into the human condition. I have seen myself, my partner, and our relationship grow so much through working with Gina and Coy. I highly recommend working with them both or either individually. Thank you so much!"
