illuminating connection.

a couples course by Krystal Jakosky

let me ask you a question.

Do you ever wish you could communicate better with your partner - but you just don’t know how?

Let the waiting end and the fun begin. Illuminating Connection is a couple’s course focused on what you’re already doing right.

Through exploration and play, we’ll learn new tools while building on the communication tools we already have. We’ll learn a new language of love while adding depth to your connection.

this is not your mother’s couples course.

While other retreats might focus on fixing what’s wrong, we celebrate what you’re already doing well. In this course (and in all of our courses), we own our shit. Meaning, there is no finger pointing, no name-calling, and no nonsense.

You will never be asked to air your, or your partner’s, dirty laundry because our focus here is not to blame – but to celebrate. We focus on all of the amazing things that make your relationship wonderfully and uniquely your own.

If you’re struggling, this course can absolutely help you and your partner work towards a stronger and healthier relationship. However, this is not a “fix-it, last-ditch effort” type of course. This course is meant to celebrate what you’re already doing right and to help you learn new tools to improve your connection even more.

Of course, there are always things to improve on – we’re human after all. I believe the best way to do that is through open communication and earnestly expressing your needs to your partner. If you come to this course with an open mind, a gentle heart, and a genuine interest in enhancing your relationship, I know that you and your partner will leave feeling closer than ever and more capable of weathering any storm that comes your way.

This course is a celebration of you and your partner’s relationship. You will brag about each other and will be bragged about in return. This means each participant needs to choose into this experience. 

If your partner is having reservations, take a moment and ask why. Create a safe space for them to voice their concerns and then truly listen. If you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us and we’ll be happy to answer them.

Not at all – apart from each other! We’re all told we need to communicate or to “use your words,” but we’re never really taught how. We’re going to change that and give you invaluable tools to make life even better. 

In addition, we’ll encourage your individuality and the ways it enhances your relationship with your partner. 

Many of the activities and discussions we’ll have in this course cater to a committed partnership. With that said, this course encourages you to find ways to apply the information to your unique relationship. Every single activity or discussion is optional based on you and your partner’s comfort level.

As of right now, we offer this course in Boulder county, Colorado. We look forward to offering the course in other areas and locations across the United States. Stay tuned for more course information coming soon.

You don’t want to miss a minute of this amazing course. We do our absolute best to start and stop on time in order to respect everyone’s time. The course builds upon itself, so you would miss crucial information if you miss any day.

This is a chance to invest in yourself. Don’t short change what you deserve and need.

Each day is structured with individual, couple, and group activities. Breaks for bathroom and snacks are built in along with opportunities for journaling and connecting with your partner. Every day begins and ends with a stretching routine for you and your partner to connect. This routine was designed with all skill levels and body types in mind.

You’ll laugh, maybe cry, and definitely leave feeling more connected than when you arrived.

We’ve got most everything covered. While drinks and refreshments will be provided, you’re encouraged to bring a water bottle and anything personal to make you even more comfortable. (Blankie, totem, fuzzy socks, favorite snack). Most importantly, bring your excitement for things to come and the intention of connecting with your partner.
