Retrouvaille of Northern Virginia CORE Meetings

Retrouvaille of Northern Virginia CORE Meetings

CORE = Continuing Our Retrouvaille Experience

Couples who have a completed a weekend and some post sessions, even outside this area, are welcome to attend CORE meetings in Northern Virginia. CORE is the third and lifelong phase of the Retrouvaille program.

During a CORE meeting, couples take turns presenting topics using a workbook. There is ample time for discussion, followed by a dialogue question related to the presented topic.  Please bring a snack to share and your dialogue books. 

Meetings are held the fourth Sunday of each month, unless otherwise indicated, at Mt. Tabor Retreat House at 2363Hunter Mill Road in Vienna, VA.
