The venues below are our most popular:

7-Day Odyssey

The 7-Day Odyssey marriage counseling retreat always starts early on a Sunday morning and ends on the following Saturday late afternoon.  We will depart from and will return to port in Oriental, NC.  For more information about the itinerary and schedule please read more about the 7-Day Itinerary.

5-Day Odyssey

The 5-Day Odyssey marriage counseling retreat always starts early on a Wednesday morning and ends on the following Sunday late afternoon.  We will depart from and will return to port in Oriental, NC.  For more information about the itinerary and schedule please read more about the 5-Day Itinerary.

2-Day Intensive Retreat

This 2-day retreat always takes place on a weekend, starting Saturday morning ending Sunday afternoon. This retreat is not an odyssey because the boat remains docked and is used as the retreat’s main work space for the 2 days. It is nevertheless very scenic at the mouth of Oriental Harbor. In the rare event of a powerful storm, a backup office would be used in nearby New Bern. Each day of the retreat involves four hours of intensive counseling with Bryce and Helen, divided into one two hour morning session and one two hour afternoon session. For more information about the itinerary and schedule please read more about the intensive 2-day retreat.

Landlubber’s Retreat

The landlubber’s 5 and 7 day counseling retreats involve overnight stays at the three port towns of New Bern, Oriental and Beaufort, NC.  Ocracoke Island is necessarily excluded from the landlubber’s itinerary due to logistical considerations.  Instead of traveling by boat to each of the three port towns you would travel by car. The activities at each port would be the same as described elsewhere for our 5 and 7 day odysseys.  Please see our itineraries for those odysseys.  The scheduling and rate structure would be the same as well.
