Intimate Reconnections

For the heart of your relationship

An Example Past Retreat

Heart Opening Extended Weekend: Augusta, in Missouri wine country

A three-day couples' group tranformative retreat in a restorative setting with relationship therapist Linda Weiner and Thai yoga massage teacher Sherry Summers. You will learn to connect with your beloved through the experience of touch, to build trust, create heartfelt sensory connections, learn your partner's heart language, and expand your vocabulary of love. You will also learn to establish free time and space for yourself and your beloved in order to facilitate true openness, presence and bliss, and unleash the radiance of your heart's desire to feel love, give love, and receive love. You will come away with a creative structure of daily and weekly heart practices to honor your connection and bring joy to everyday life. Our final day together will focus on ways to sustain your loving intentions and new practices upon your return home. The Reconnections Experience is more about taking the time to experience and reawaken your hearts toward one another than it is about psychotherapy. This long weekend is designed to bring your hearts together in gratitude.
