Relationship Intensives through the Marriage 911 weekend involves a unique program that is both personalized and intimate.  These retreats are designed to restore individuals and rebuild broken relationships. The Marriage 911 retreat is tailored to work intensively with one couple at a time – you and your spouse or significant other.  Our all-inclusive programs are more than typical marriage counseling, more than a plan to stop divorce or a weekend session at a church. Marriage Intensives are new beginnings, even for relationships where you feel all hope is lost.

There are some logistics involved in securing the North Shore vacation rental and coordinating calendars so lets get started on our plans for relationship transformation.


New Horizons uses the latest counseling techniques popular today:  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory and Process Group interaction all rooted and grounded on timeless wisdom principles.  This course goes way beyond the typical marriage counseling approaches of conflict mediation and “learning to be nicer” techniques and gets to the root problems that have been hidden for years beneath negative reaction patterns designed to protect, control and avoid.  The end result is a new found sense of compassion and  empathy that lead to deeper connection and the intimacy you have always desired.

The first part of the course is designed to help you and your partner identify the negative reaction patterns you both have developed over time. The key to turning things around in your relationship is to be able to discover and understand your own “Fear Dance.” All defensiveness and anger stems from our core fears. We all have them, although we may not recognize them. From those fears we have developed reaction patterns that are designed to get us what we want (intimacy and connection). However, because our reaction patterns are negative and unhealthy they divide us further instead of bringing us together. I will guide you through the process of understanding your own Fear Dance as well as your spouse’s fear dance and then coach you by equipping you to replace those negative reaction patterns with healthy patterns that will ultimately lead to the intimacy and connection and friendship you long for in your future marital relationship. The formula is simple yet profound: Awareness leads to compassion which can lead to change. You can’t fix a problem unless you know what is wrong – we will help you understand.  (see daily schedule below)

A Healing Environment

Customized programs take you away from distractions and routines and allow the two of you to escape to the tranquility of  living ocean side on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu.  The focused environment makes your complex situation feel simpler; enabling you to experience the serenity and space you need to focus on yourself … and on each other.


Marriage 911 retreats take place on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu.  We rent a clean and homey vacation rental located on the premises of Camp Homelani where you are only steps away from the peaceful, tranquility of the Pacific ocean.  You will get your own private room/bathroom and the house is equipped with a full kitchen and living room for your comfort.  The town of Haleiwa is only minutes away for supplies or snacks.  Free time can include swimming, ocean sports, basketball and long walks on the beach.

Frequently asked questions:

How can you accomplish so much in so little time? I have done traditional, office counseling for years where couples come to see me for an hour once a week. We start – stop, start – stop, start – stop. With the Marriage 911 retreat format you get the amazing benefit of synergy and momentum. Instead of going back home to the hustle and bustle of life, work, kids and a job you get to focus 100% on your marriage. I can make more progress in this format with a couple in three days than in 6 months of once a week counseling.

How do you calculate the cost?  Part of my commitment to you is providing nice accommodations so you can get away from regular life, relax, and focus on one another.  Besides the quality environment, you will receive 16 hours of intensive, intimate counseling with two counselors that includes some of the best curriculum and marriage healing tools that I have collected over my career.  Also, the food is "homecooked" and tasty.  So, if you add up the vacation rental cost, the cost for food and the cost for 2 counselors, you can see this is a really fantastic bargain.

If you want to know how this retreat has impacted others, read through the testimonials in the Marriage 911 drop down menu at the top of this page.

Here is a testimonial from a couple who flew in from the mainland just to do this retreat:

“I was expecting to come into a situation where I was going to get ganged up on and told how wrong I was and that wasn’t the case at all.  I was given tools to help my wife and I not be so blind to each other’s needs/wants and I was given tools to help me learn how to make something that would normally be an argument turn into something more productive for the both of us.  Overall I thought the retreat was a very good, very beneficial program for me.  I was given the tools and information to make my marriage better.  It is now up to me to use these tools moving forward.  I thought everything was beneficial.”
“Mark has helped me find myself and how to grow so I can better understand my husband.  We were able to learn to talk and be whole – as one and not be separate.  The environment and vibe is calming making the retreat more enjoyable to have trust and understanding with the information that we were taught.  There is now a new light at the end of the road to follow.  I loved every minute of my time.”   Wife
