Couples Retreat, 17-19 August 2017

 Inspiring couples to build significant lives together

DREAM2GETHER is a short intensive specifically designed for couples looking to build their Halftime journey together.  Halftime Australia understands the impact transitioning from success to significance has on marriages and families.  This program offers valuable hands-on tools to help couples navigate the unique challenges of this season of life, as well as be intentional in setting the course of the second half of their lives and also create a meaningful legacy.  

In our busy fast-paced world, DREAM2GETHER is an exclusive opportunity for couples to get away from the pressures and distractions of daily living. The retreat is purposely interactive and allows couples time together to pause, reflect and take stock, to dream beyond their limits and craft roadmaps to live out those dreams.
