Event description


In our years of running Leadership Camps, we have heard again and again from attendees who get so much from the experience, they can’t wait to send their significant others, their executive team colleagues, or their co-founders to Camp. They discover quickly that almost everything we're teaching at Leadership Camp is as relevant to personal relationships as it is to leadership at work.

So we decided go all in on this idea, creating a couples retreat in Camp form that brings conscious awareness and communication to romantic, professional, familial, past, potential, or any other type of relationship.

Conscious Couples Camp is an opportunity to dramatically improve and enhance your personal relationship leveraging the principles of Conscious Leadership. Bring more authenticity and vulnerability to your partnership, and take a new look at your individual and joint “operating systems” with an eye to clarify expectations, revise your conscious or unconscious patterns into clean agreements, and clear the decks of recycling issues using new tools for cultivating intentional conflict that brings you closer to each other. Facilitated by Sue Heilbronner and her partner, Dennis Adsit.

Here’s what recent attendees say about Couples Camp:

“Leadership Camp with a fact checker.”
— Mark H., Boulder, CO

"After Couples Camp, I feel so authentically connected to my partner from a pure place of honesty. It’s the deepest connection with another person I’ve ever felt, and the best part is that we now have actionable skillsets and tools to use in our daily lives to maintain this higher-level consciousness, not only in our relationship but in every relationship we have — family, friends, colleagues, acquaintances etc. My biggest takeaway was that the 'inner' personal work is actually the biggest game-changer, which bleeds into the 'us' relationship work."
— Ashley D., Napa, CA

“Thank you for a life-opening and relationship-opening two days. We have told our Couples Camp Story many times, always laughing!
Your process --and your loving way of helping people see what is obvious but not seen-- have enabled us to transform long-standing differences, to see them as differences and also as possibilities.

Camp was a tremendous gift, and we are very grateful.”
— Carol B., New York, NY

This two-day couples retreat is for partners or singles of any kind who are looking to build or dramatically improve or amplify their partnerships and want the tools to make their dream pairing a reality. If you're working on a company, a marriage, parenting, a close friendship, or working to be in a relationship, you and your "other(s)" will benefit enormously from Camp.

What Camp is All About

Couples Camp introduces core concepts and applications of Conscious Leadership that will kickstart an immediate improvement in intimacy, listening, engagement, communication, conflict resolution, and candor in your key relationships:

We help people, couples and business partners:

  • Spot their personality patterns and blind spots

  • Build skills and tools for embracing and working through conflict

  • Develop tools for bringing more candor into your relationships, which supports intimate, revealed conversations and enduring relationships

  • Increase your skills as a present, conscious listener

  • Play more and have more fun together

We'll be covering these topics:

  • What are the beliefs and patterns that keep us from having the relationships we most want?

  • How can we listen consciously and better manage conflicts?

  • How can we get our relationship (or your pattern of avoiding one) unstuck?

  • How can we take our relationship to the next level of intimacy, candor, creativity, effectiveness, and joy?

  • How can we get true alignment?

  • How can we create the partnership we most want?

Why is Couples Camp Called “Camp”?

Well, we like immersive programming that feels like camp: rich, connected, experiential, intense, fun, transformative.

Who Should Attend Couples Camp?

Couples Camp is perfect for:

  • Romantic partners as partners or one partner interested in optimizing his or her romantic relationship

  • Business partners and co-founders

  • Family members with involved relationships

  • Anyone who is working to identify a new partner in romance or business and wants a better sense of how they may be enhancing or interfering with getting exactly what they want

Who Facilitates Couples Camp?

Couples Camp is facilitated by Sue Heilbronner, sought-after executive coach, CEO of MergeLane, investor, mentor, and Conscious Leadership trainer and her partner Dennis Adist, Ph.D. organizational consultant, facilitator, and executive coach.

What Else Should I Know About Camp?

Couples Camp is an emotionally intense, introspective experience. We will be working to uncover often lifelong patterns that can get in the way unconsciously. One thing we notice is that most of these patterns have deep and meaningful emotional connections. Couples Camp helps attendees explore their emotional substructure in a way that may feel direct and intense.

You will have full control over what you choose to share, but assume others will be sharing intimate and revealing information from which the entire group can learn. Be prepared for charged discussions. We believe noticing, naming and welcoming our patterns in a trusted group is key to creating transformation and reducing drama.

If you've been waiting for a chance to deepen your self-awareness and connection in current or desired relationships, this couples retreat is for you.

What is the refund policy?

You will receive a full refund less $25 of administrative expense if you cancel 45 days prior to the start of camp. You will receive a 50% refund if you cancel between 44 - 21 days prior to the start of camp. As of 20 days prior to the start of camp, your registration will be non-refundable, and you will be given the option of attending a future camp if a future camp is scheduled.
