Personal Transformation Intensive (PTI) Workshops

What is PTI?

PTI is a powerful, experiential therapeutic program for those seeking a deeper level of healing, understanding and growth. The transformation complements your current practices and goes beyond traditional therapy. Our series of weekends focus on codependency, addiction, SHAME, mind/body connection and relationships.

Is PTI Right for Me?

PTI IS FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TAKE THEIR HEALING TO THE NEXT LEVEL. Individual and group heart-centered techniques including meditation, hypnotherapy and breath therapy, are used to create a unique experience. PTI equips you to clear away negative, unconscious thoughts that inhibit joy and becoming your authentic self.

What are PTI workshops?

Our PTI workshops are a series of five, 3-day weekend retreats designed to bring together an intimate group of people dedicated to enhancing their lives by committing to emotional and spiritual growth.

What is my commitment to the program?

This is a boarded PTI, meaning we ask that each participant stay at a local hotel during the weekend. Building community is an important component of this program.

Participation includes all print and electronic information, generous snacks, beverages and electronic workshop materials. Please bring your laptop or tablet with you!

When you agree to attend, you are making a commitment to all 5 weekends. You may pay for each weekend as they occur or benefit from a 5% discount by pre-paying for all five. Unattended sessions will be charged.

What is the cost?

The total investment for the five 3-day weekends is $2500, payable at once or $500 per weekend. We accept Cash, Quick Pay/Zelle/Venmo or Credit Card (2.5% service fee will be applied to credit cards).

To secure a spot, a non-refundable deposit of $250 is due by August 1.

Can I use my medical benefits?

We are in network with BCBS Blue Choice and will provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
