Genesis Marriage Enrichment Retreats
of all ages and phases
The Genesis Marriage Enrichment Retreats will occur annually with its debut in the Bahamas at the Margaritaville Beach Resort. This 4-day/3-night event promises to enrich marriages of all ages and phases. So, if you’ve been married for thirty days or thirty years, or your marriage is having a hard time or a hearty time, this retreat is for you.
You’ll be hosted by a professional psychologist in the person of Dr. Sam Heastie, who has been married for 37 years and has worked with couples for more than a quarter of a century. Dr. Heastie is a college professor who is very familiar with both the theory and the application of making marriages successful. He has an extensive clientele for whom he has provided services ranging from “meeting your match” to “marrying your match.” His creation of the Genesis Retreats is the latest in his offerings. It intends to enrich matches so that they will go from mad to merry, or from merry to melodious.

Wakey, wakey, breakfast is served; it’s buffet-style, and it’s on the house!
Your stomach will grumble in anticipation as the mouthwatering aroma of freshly brewed coffee and sizzling bacon wafts through the air. Your eyes will widen in glee as you gaze upon the stunning display of breakfast delights that stretches out before you, a feast fit for kings and queens.
