Marriage 911 Couples Retreat

Welcome to the New Horizons
Marriage 911 Intensive Couple’s Retreat







Designed for couples who desire intimacy and connection but cannot seem to overcome chronic conflict, disagreement and distancing.
(scroll to the bottom to read testimonies from those who have been to Marriage 911)

Marriage Intensives – Marriage Intensives through the New Horizons Hawaii Marriage Counseling approach are personalized, intimate programs for restoring individuals and rebuilding marriages. The Marriage 911 retreat is designed to only work intensively with TWO couples at a time – you and your spouse, and one other couple.  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 husbands and wives who think all hope is lost.

2017 Retreats:

October 13-15

October 27th- 29th, 2017.  Marriage 911 will be at the Lazy Z resort  in Twain Harte California.  Only 6 couple slots available for this amazing weekend retreat.  Your tuition will cover room, food and weekend intensive relationship seminar.  Click here for more information: 


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 beautiful, upscale vacation rental located on the premises of Camp Homelani where you are only steps away from the peaceful, tranquility of the Pacific ocean.  Each couple gets their own private room/bathroom and the house is equipped with a kitchen and living room for your comfort.  Delicious home cooked meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are served in the dining hall and included as part of your stay.  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 first class accommodations so you can relax, be well fed and well rested.  The meeting space we are in is gorgeous and the food is all made from scratch and delicious.  Besides the quality environment, you will receive 16 hours of intensive, intimate counseling with some of the best curriculum and marriage healing tools that I have collected over my career.

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
