Getting to the heart of the matter: Unlocking Blocks to Intimacy

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” -Rumi

Who are you in a relationship? What would it look like to live an open-hearted life? Are you ready to resolve what holds you back from getting what you want in relationships? By discovering how and why we get in our own way, we are more equipped to both stops the cycle of defeating relationship patterns and repair the parts of ourselves that block us from finding and keeping the love we want.

Expand who you are in a relationship in a 5-day luxury Hawaiian retreat led by Toni Herbine-Blank, MS, RN, C-SP, Clinical Specialist Psychotherapist, Senior Trainer for the Center for Self Leadership, international speaker and author and founder of Intimacy from the Inside Out©:

  • Heal relational wounds and defenses that inhibit connection

  • Explore and repair patterns that block connection and intimacy
  • Cultivate authentic, open-hearted communication

Whether you are currently in a relationship, just ended a relationship or striving to start one, we invite you to take a step toward inner and outer transformation. The Island of Maui and its natural beauty is the ideal location for healing and self-discovery.
