Do you feel that life has got in the way of your relationship? Do you need a break to recharge and reconnect?
This is your opportunity to focus on yourself and your partner, and fall in love all over again.
As featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, personal development coach Tony Gaskins has dedicated his life to helping couples create lasting love. Tony will help you see your partner – or potential partner – from a refreshed perspective, and inspire you to make a new commitment to love them with all your heart.
Through live coaching, discussion and self-reflection, Tony will give you:
· Life-changing healing and forgiveness exercises for you to resolve the pain-points that hinder your personal growth.
· Communication skills to eliminate arguments and pave the way for raw, heart-to-heart conversations.
· Real-talk about real love – cutting through the illusions about what love should really look and feel like.
When you leave this immersive weekend workshop, you will take with you a clear understanding of the blocks you’ve been facing in your romantic life. You will have a heart ready to forgive and start anew, and a deep belief in the power of pure love. And of course, a plan and actionable strategies to support your relationship for decades to come.
Open to anyone in a relationship, or desiring to be.
