“My husband and I just got back from our 2 day marriage retreat with you. I’m not even sure where to begin! We are blown away…

If you’re reading this page, chances are your marriage isn’t working the way you hoped it would.

And I get it, marriage is hard.

After all you put into it.


Talking to family, friends, coworkers…seeking advice that will work

Trying for the sake of the kids…

A spouse that’s got one foot out the door…

What if your marriage could become joyful again without the hassle of months of therapy to determine whether or not you even WANT to stay together?

What if you could quiet the resentment, distrust, and lingering doubts that you have about your partner?

What if there was a way to know with confidence and with certainty that whatever decision you make it’s the right one?

Help You Fix Your Marriage

I used to work with couples as a traditional marriage counselor- seeing couples each week for 90 minutes.

But 90 minutes each week is not enough to revive a failing marriage.And I decided to create an intensive program that would jump-start things in 2 days.

And this 2 day format has worked time and time again.

I’d like to share it with you.

  • Achieve your relationship goals through a done-for-you plan

Your 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-up that provides accountability until your skills are firmly grounded in your day to day life. We are 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.


marriage retreatsPrivate 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 summaries, video presentations, transcripts for easy reading, and worksheets for implementation. Includes our 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 our marriage intensives as a private getaway where you and your spouse have the opportunity to work exclusively with us for 6 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.

Our mission is to save marriages so it is in our best interest that you succeed. You can with our guidance and your commitment.


To make your retreat most comfortable, we are excited to be able to include a one night stay at the conveniently located DoubleTree Hilton in Pikesville. The DoubleTree by Hilton hotel near Baltimore, MD offers stylish guest rooms and amenities such as the health and fitness facility, pool and free WiFi.

We arrived at Rabbi Slatkin’s office desperate and on our very last legs – much like a long journey through the desert without food, water or a map. We have been married for 17 years, together for 20 years and the very same trouble spots were still presenting themselves over and over again. Those trouble spots have not only distorted many pages of our relationship but they were increasing in intensity over the years. We thought we had reached a crisis point and engaged in EFT couples therapy. We attended for over 7 months with no tangible results to sustain a better relationship. We were only able to barely arrest the process of the screaming matches, let alone the damage and exhaustion were always present. We truly believe that once you begin to seek help as a couple, a significant amount of damage has already occurred and vague dialogues about pleasantries and connection are unable to touch the place where you both need to be in order to be successful. We were both very saddened and desperate for REAL help as another 7 months had passed us by without any true relief. So, road weary and exhausted with barely a glimmer of hope, we embarked upon the Marriage Restoration Project journey. The structure of this program not only allows you to hear your spouse but it also allows you to finally be heard. Rabbi Slatkin and his wife are to be commended for creating this program and presenting a protocol that has immediate results with long lasting communication measures to sustain your relationship. My husband and I entered our home together after the second day and everything looked different. We both felt safe for the first time in a very long time in each other’s presence –perhaps for the first time since we had met. We laughed, we smiled and looked at one another with curiosity again almost as if a reset button had been pushed. The Imago communication dialog allows both of your inner children to meet in a more formal setting thus facilitating the ability to see, recognize and validate where your partners issues and healing reside. Many, many thanks – we are relieved, happy and excited once again to look at the future…..together.

“When we came into Baltimore for your Two Day Marriage Intensive about six weeks ago, we were at a crossroads in our relationship. We were recovering from infidelity, separated, and hoping to get some clarity as to whether there was a future for us and our young family. We walked away from your office with hope that our communication could be different and that we could be more transparent with each other. We knew it would take time to decide our future but we were definitely open to the possibility that the relationship could last. Six weeks later, we are still experiencing positive results. We are spending more time with each other, having fun again, and our able to communicate with out the constant reactivity and defensiveness that was plaguing our relationship. While it will take time to rebuild the trust that was broken, we are hopeful that as we continue to implement and integrate the work we did with you that we will build a more solid future for our family. We can’t thank you enough for your help.”

As this page ends, imagine a marriage that is built on a healthy and stable foundation.

A marriage that can withstand all of life’s many challenges that are thrown its way.

So that you can both be a refuge to each other, when you come home from busy and stressful days.

My husband and I just got back from our 2 day Intensive couples counseling sessions with you. I’m not even sure where to begin! We are blown away! We are married for close to two years and in recent months our relationship kept spiraling downward as we increasingly became upset with each other due to expectations we deemed unmet as well as constant misunderstandings! We’ve been seeing another therapist who was trained in EFT for about 10 weeks but we were becoming more frustrated, despondent, and hopeless as things seemed to be getting worse versus better!!! As our last session by our previous therapist resulted in my husband angrily and frustratingly stating “I’m out of this marriage”, I realized WE MUST FIND HELP ELSEWHERE ASAP!!

Luckily, after extensive research I chanced upon your site. Somehow, the messages conveyed as you readily share your own experience with Imago therapy in your marriage and your belief in the foundation of marriage that if there are true intentions all marriages can be helped, resonated in me as true and meaningful! I am so glad I reached out! I must say my husband was very skeptical that indeed this type of therapy will be helpful and an answer to all our problems. He was especially concerned since I had SO MANY issues with him that he couldn’t fathom we’d even get trough half in 2 days. Luckily, my husband is indeed a caring, loving, and smart man and having seen my strong feelings toward this very likely helping us he surprised me by booking our 2 day intensive appointment! This has been the best gift ever!

We both feel that working with you has helped us beyond our wildest dreams. We feel that the imago process and your facilitating our dialogues was conducted with amazing dignity and expertise from your end. The sessions throughout was within a calm and respectful atmosphere which enabled us to feel safe, and vulnerable and thus allowing for healing and understanding to come about naturally and constructively!

Kudos to you for such amazing great work! Your empathy, caring, and passion for what you do along with your knowledge and expertise shown through!

May you continue helping many others who can so benefit from your work, just as we did!

Forever Grateful,

David & Esther*

The 2 day private marriage retreat with Rabbi Shlomo Slatkin was an incredible and life changing experience.  We initially met Rabbi several months ago, at a time when we were experiencing a great deal of turmoil and uncertainty in our marriage. We had been together for 20 years, married for 15 years and raising two young children while running an incredibly successful but highly stressful business. Our lives were hectic and we were unable to effectively communicate with one another, leading to a complete marital breakdown.  We were at a cross roads in our marriage, wondering where to go next and if we should even stay together.  Rabbi kept in touch with us and encouraged us to join him for a private 2 day marriage retreat.  I admit, I was apprehensive but knew that we needed help getting our marriage back on track. We tried marriage counseling in the past, but left there feeling more anger and resentment towards one another and no resolution.  I am so glad we took that leap of faith and joined Rabbi Shlomo for those 2 days!  The retreat provided us with a safe and supportive environment that allowed us to address each other in a calm and respectful manner. It allowed us to effectively communicate and truly hear one another, rather than rebutting or talking over each other.  It allowed us to bring up painful topics that we had brushed under the rug or were afraid to discuss and gave us the opportunity to make amends and work toward healing and forgiveness.

Rabbi Shlomo Slatkin has a very calming presence and a true gift for making couples feel safe and supported, while teaching them tools for how to effectively communicate. I am so grateful to him and I truly believe new life has been breathed into our relationship.  I would highly recommend this retreat!
