Workshop Tools

You will be provided with a conference book and handouts to support your new learning and to keep notes. Bring your favorite writing pen (or pens if you’re like me!)

Most of us travel with our laptops, tablets, and smart technology. What would we do without them?

This ELEVATE Resilience for Your Relationship is about you and your partner and has been designed to provide you a unique and extraordinary experience. One that allows for you and other participants to be fully present.

Using a laptop or tablet can be distracting to those around you and disconnect you from the experience. The act of writing and interacting with those around you allows you to be present and to connect.

While you will not need your laptop for the event, safes are provided in each room so you can feel comfortable securing it when you’re not using your laptop.

Lunch & Activities

An amazing lunch will be provided on Wednesday and Thursday of the conference, prepared by Cielos restaurant and served in one of the beautiful dining areas.

Light snacks will be provided in the meeting room each afternoon, with coffee and water. If you have special dietary needs, please plan accordingly for your comfort. In accordance with the hospitality requirements, please refrain from bringing outside food into the meeting space.

Attire & Comfort

The dress attire for this event is business casual. Please wear something in which you are relaxed and able to move. Conference room temperatures can vary, and you might consider bringing a layer to stay comfortable.

Fragrance-Free Space

With respect for other participants in the room who might have chemical sensitivities, please refrain from wearing or using strong-scented sprays, lotions, or fragrances. Thank you for your consideration.

Lodge on the Desert was selected specifically for its relaxing and romantic atmosphere and unique amenities to support your learning and connection so you can easily integrate the techniques and strategies of resilience and well-being as a couple. 

After a day of connection and discovery with your partner, the quaint atmosphere provided by the Lodge on the Desert lends to a romantic dinner and get-away for two or continuing conversations with newfound friends. Whether you choose to linger around the outdoor fireplace, enjoy the pool and jacuzzi area, or cozy up in one of the little patio nooks secreted around the property, you will find yourself relaxed and rejuvenated. 


Start each day with a complimentary buffet breakfast for two included with each hotel room booking.
