Heart Awakening – 2 hrs. (Land Journey – Together)
This session creates a pathway of un-conditional love and light toward one’s self and all existence. Using the power of vibration to activate and heal, you will feel the essence of your soul and come into the remembrance of your own divinity. The session takes place out on the land and is about reconnecting heart with the powerful forces of Nature. This connection calls forth the remembrance of all relations in the universe.

Relationship Dynamics – 90 min. (Together)
During this session the practitioner will first observe as you tell the story of your lives together, then evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship. The key is to identify the underlying emotions being expressed in the way you communicate with each other. This information will be critical to the healing process, because emotion is the music of the relationship dance.  In order to be successful, you must learn to listen to this music and attune yourself to your partner. Once you understand the emotion your partner is experiencing you have acquired the key to facilitating a new relationship dynamic.

Couples Retreat Massage – 90 min. (Together)
The first day of a private couple retreat always involves some emotionally challenging work.  So now it’s time to release that physical tension and relax into a space that’s safe and nurturing. This session will get you out of your head and back in your body. It’s an important step that will help each of you embrace the process and be more fully present during the rest of your retreat.

Opening the Door to Intimacy  – 90 min. (Together)
True intimacy with your partner is a sacred act, and perhaps the closest we come to Divine bliss. If the passion has gone out of your relationship it must be rekindled in order for the relationship to survive over the long-term. As long as both parties are physically healthy, sex is a fairly good barometer for the overall health of the relationship. If trust has been broken, or if you have simply drifted apart, getting comfortable enough to be intimate again can be difficult. The techniques we teach during this session will help you take the pressure off, allowing you to slowly deepen your intimacy by establishing an atmosphere of mutual respect, compassion and safety. For many men in particular this session is a revelation about how women really want to be loved — empowering the male to become a truly great lover for the first time in his life.

Relationship Enhancement Tools – 90 min. (Together)
Now it’s time to learn new skills that you can incorporate to further improve your communication and interaction. Learn to enhance your relationship with tools that help you be in the moment and present with each other. Learn to listen and discover ways to make your relationships richer and deeper. Enhance what you have and honor & respect each other. Embark on new ways of interaction and introspection through meditation practices or develop other ways of enriching your deepest connections.

Chakra Connection – 90 min. (Together) 
Learn how to energetically build a healthy and vibrant relationship by balancing the Chakras. This session uses a guided meditation and positive affirmations while moving through each of the chakra energy centers. Gaze into your partner’s eyes as you empower & heal each other. Speaking directly and gently to your partner, the Vortex will move between you and stir your partnership to higher states of consciousness.

Depart Sedona – You will depart Sedona with a new perspective and sense of being. You are now the creator of each new day and you will take home tools from your journey to help you gain a sense of empowerment and a deeper understanding of love.
