Probably you’ve had painful experiences that the Hollywood myth of ‘ Happily ever after’ isn't true. 

In order to deepen love and feel fresh and alive in your relating, more is needed. What is that? 

For relationships to thrive we surely need love, but also skills for intimacy

This immersion is for couples who want to explore and create ways for deeper connection with yourselves, your partner and your world. It’s valuable whether you’re at the beginning of or well into your relationship, whether you feel empty-handed or well-equipped with tools.


The purpose of this immersion is to give your relationship dedicated time and focus to deepen.

We will open doors and hold space for you as a couple to embark on a creative process towards new discoveries and rewarding results in your relationship.

There will be a maximum of 6 couples.

In this experiential training you will be able to experiment with creating new results while being part of a supportive group journey. It offers you a solid foundation to what may become an ongoing training/exploration, with 'Part 2' scheduled for July 2021.

Using practices from Possibility Management and other bodies of work we will explore and learn tools for: 

  • multi-level intimacy (physical, sexual, mental, emotional and beyond) 

  • communication skills 

  • having difficult conversations 

  • letting go of expectations & resolving conflict 

  • the art of king & queen making

  • empowering each other’s life purpose


Expand your tool box in a powerful, enjoyable and fun way.

The Venue

Shambhala Eco Retreat - Onekaka, Golden Bay

Shambhala is set on acres of stunning native bush, with peaceful, secluded gardens, tea houses, Buddha statues and walks around the property and down to the private beach. A great place to explore during your free time! The hall has windows the whole way along and looks out over the Bay - it is constructed of cedar, Cyprus and pine that were grown on the property. Our kitchen is warm and welcoming and well stocked with yummy treats and drinks and there are plenty of spaces for reflection and connection. The rooms are simple and there’s a mixture of double and twin rooms (rooms will be allocated on a 1st in basis and we will do our best to meet your preference). 

Shambhala is a real gem. ​- A perfect location for our weekend retreat.
