Relationship 911 Retreat - at last, a program developed for quick and effective results

New Horizons is now offering “Relationship 911" retreats on Oahu's beautiful North Shore

Relationship 911 curriculum will cover:

  • Increasing your Emotional Intelligence – Developing the awareness of what is going on with you and others.  You can’t fix something that is broken without knowing what is broken about it.
  • Learning your imprint style – Each of us has an “imprint style” that we have grown accustomed to using in order to manage conflict.  Learning what your imprint style is and also what other’s imprint styles are will allow you to elevate your awareness to not fall into unhealthy and unproductive patterns of managing conflict.
  • Learning your “Fear Dance” with others – When our issues and baggage are “triggered,” most of us default to destructive defensive habits designed to keep conflict at bay.  These triggers are our fears: fear of not being loved, fear of being misportrayed, fear of being disrespected, etc.  We will show you a “schematic” of every argument you have had with your loved one:  why it happens, why things you are doing is proving unfruitful and what to do to stop the toxic dance.
  • Learning a new style of communication called “Heart Talk” – Heart Talk is the key to the relationship you want.  Heart talk is a method of teaching people the skill of communicating effectively.  It is different from communication done in business.  The objective is to understand another person and BE IMPACTED BY THEIR FEELINGS.          This is compassion.  Compassion is a powerful form of loving someone.  It opens people, it heals, it encourages cooperation and it creates the desire to reciprocate all these things

  • Relationship 911 BASIC PROGRAM - covers four, one hour, video based or in person sessions with you (and your spouse, BF or GF, or family members)

Relationship Intensives through New Horizons Marriage 911 involve a unique program that is both personalized and intimate.  These intensives are designed to restore individuals and rebuild broken relationships. The Marriage 911 intensive is tailored to work exclusively 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.

New Horizons uses the latest counseling techniques popular today:  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment Theory and Process 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)

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 intensive 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 two days than in 6 months of once a week counseling.

If you want to know how these intensives have 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
