Healing Intensive: Intimacy & Communication for Couples is offering a 4-Day Couples’ Healing Intensive in Sarasota, May 25-28. This retreat provides an opportunity for individuals to experience deep personal growth work in the presence of their partner. Processes of emotional discovery and release are explored in a safe, group-supported setting. Issues addressed may include anger, infidelity, commitment, addictive behaviors, emotional neglect/abuse, sexuality, and other marital and life challenges.

The Healing Intensive is especially powerful for couples struggling to build trust and intimacy in their relationship. It is an opportunity to reveal and engage with whatever is blocking joy, happiness, and communication in the relationship.

Cia Ricco, director of The Center for Natural Healing in Costa Rica, will co-facilitate this event. A body-centered psychotherapist and author of the book Living As If Your Life Depended On It!, Ricco is a well-known workshop faciliator at Kripalu.
