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


  • Aloha Villas 1338 Uluniu Road Kihei, HI, 96753 United States (map)
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 explore 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 stop the cycle of self-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 Hawaii retreat that includes 3 full days led by Toni Herbine-Blank, MS, RN, C-SP, Clinical Specialist Psychotherapist, Senior Trainer for the Center for Self Leadership, international speaker, author and founder of Intimacy from the Inside Out©:

  • Understand wounds and defenses that inhibit connection
  • Deepen relationship with yourself to be more present with others
  • Bring awareness to 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. Our high-end, luxury beachfront villa and locally-sourced meals prepared by a private chef provide a safe and relaxing environment to reflect and expand your internal and inter-personal life. Through meditation, yoga, massage, internal inquiry, nature, journaling and sharing with others, you will open channels of vulnerability and stimulate powerful connections.

How big can your heart get?
