I had no expectations, other than hoping it didn't end our relationship. We went further in a weekend than I expected in our whole life.
A lovely/exhausting/painful/transformative weekend. Thank you!
Many unexpected conversations and connections happened. We went to some dark and painful places, but had an experience of profound connection that neither of us saw coming -- kind of rocked us.
It was a very relaxed and accepting space that was created, so that there was nothing in the way of going deeply into the exercises and conversations.
It created a context and framework to have different conversations in a safe, non-threatening way.
I really appreciated the extra effort Dr. Gamby made to work with us and help us through. She was able to pull us out of the context and hurt feelings to help us make progress where so often we would have spun back up if we had been at home. She has such a great heart and her generosity and caring were evident in her interactions with us. It was a worthwhile add to our vacation and helpful to have time away from our lives to work through things which are so often triggered. I'm hopeful that we are on a more positive path.
It helped heaps and I feel I have more tools to help our relationship succeed.
I found the practical applications of the HMT program to be very useful. I feel we can convert this into regular routines in our life at home. I really liked the venue and the just-right distance for breakout couple work. A huge plus was the place! I would recommend this program to others especially if traveling to Kaua'i and making a bigger trip out of it. Seriously, being away from wherever home is amplifies a solid program.
Dr. Gamby brought a solid professional approach, while staying approachable, funny and appropriately disclosive. A 10!
It is a step-by-step program to shift to focus on a couple's process, to identify the stuck points and vulnerabilities and to increase the couple's sense of safety and security in the relationship. We got to spend time together, relax, talk about our relationship. We have a process to use in the future if we get stuck in a negative cycle of interaction. It was a beautiful place to hold the workshop. The views and the grounds were gorgeous and facilitated intimate conversations with my husband. Thank you!
It forced us to have conversations we both avoid. This makes it easier and less threatening to do on our own. The goal is progress and we made some real strides and important revelations.
We feel more connected for sure. Just spending time and talking to my partner was a great start. Everyone needs an opportunity.
I had no preconceived ideas but really enjoyed/needed the frank discussions that my partner and I were able to have - the self reflection that follows is I suppose the homework I'll have.
Showing up and hearing a different way to do and think within my primary relationship. It was a wonderful reconnection.
