What IS THE HEART ACCELERATOR?

The Heart Accelerator is a unique group retreat, designed to accelerate the healing of major wounds, help you get unstuck, and create massive energy shifts in your whole Being.

You work with Christina in the breathtaking paradise of the Azores Islands, in Portugal.

Christina started these highly transformative retreats after experiencing a deep spiritual awakening and spending 4 years in solitude, living close to nature. In those years, she learned the central theme for her coaching and healing philosophy:

A blocked heart is the source of our biggest pains and challenges in life.

Through her own heart healing and opening, Christina was able to overcome significant childhood trauma and step fully into a new life of purpose and joy.

Although Christina’s heart healing process was slow and tedious, she’s designed The Heart Accelerator to be different.

The Heart Accelerator was designed to fast-track your “heart work” and upgrade your energy.

You heal from the past, open your heart, unblock all the sticky points in your life, and step forward with joy and purpose.

You may have done a lot of personal development and healing work on your own. But now it’s time to experience a deeper level of growth than you ever thought possible.

What makes The Accelerator unique?

INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION

We keep our retreat groups small (20 max) so you won’t get lost in the crowd. Christina works very closely with each participant, ensuring that the healing and transformation work is well integrated. She also has a team of trusted coaches and healers that also help out during the retreat. So you’ll be well taken care of.

FAST TRANSFORMATION

There’s a reason we call this retreat an “Accelerator”: you’ll experience profound transformation and breakthroughs on your toughest challenges and wounds. We’ll be together for a week and in that time, expect to uncover any past pain that limits you, heal it, open your heart, and step into more clarity about your life purpose. Clients typically report feeling major shifts in their energy and well-being within a couple of days of working together.

LOCATION

You’ve heard of big (and far away) retreat destinations like Bali, Thailand, or India. But have you heard of the Portuguese Azores Islands? Don’t worry, we don’t blame you. This little-known paradise in the middle of the Atlantic is just a short 4-hour flight from Boston or 2-hour flight from continental Europe. And it’s in this breathtaking archipelago that your retreat will take place. Picture yourself walking across untouched nature, surrounded by a vast blue ocean, meditating on lush pastures overlooking endless rolling hills. There’s literally no place on earth like these wild, pristine islands.

LOGISTICS SUPPORT

Booking retreats can be stressful and time-consuming, especially if you’re already super busy. There are lots of logistics to think about: booking flights and hotels, figuring out on-the-ground transportation, trying to find the best ticket deals. But since we’re obsessed with providing an outstanding customer experience, you can expect strong logistics support from us. We remove the headaches that you can have with typical retreat bookings.

IMMERSION IN WHAT REALLY MATTERS

Mud baths, massages, and pedicures may be comfortable experiences, but they don’t change your life. Many people go on luxurious retreats, with lots of bells and whistles but then get home and find that nothing has really changed. At the Heart Accelerator, you get to the core of what needs healing and transformation, without any distractions. We remove all the superficialities of typical retreats and get you back to what really matters: a close connection with your coach and the healing power of nature. But don’t worry, we promise you’ll still be pampered: just not with mud baths or colonics (if you consider a colonic “pampering”).

EXTRA ACTIVITIES + PERKS

Most retreats don’t include any extracurricular activities or on-the-ground support. But the Heart Accelerator kicks it up a notch by providing incredible daily activities and perks included in the price of the retreat. Some of our top activities include hiking trips, sea kayaking, speed boating, and sound healing sessions. Also included in your retreat are hotel, all meals, and all on-the-ground transportation needs. And to top it off, we can also hook you up with our wellness travel partner if you want to book extra vacation time before or after the retreat to go island hopping! Why not pair some playtime in with the transformative work we will be tackling on retreat?

RETREAT FOLLOW-UP

Most retreats end when you check out of the hotel and head home. But not the Heart Accelerator. With us, you’ll continue to be guided and assisted for months after the retreat ends. After the retreat, you’ll get one follow-up group coaching session with Christina and a post-retreat online course to help you integrate back into the real world. We really want to make sure that you incorporate all the breakthroughs from the retreat into your daily life back home.

WHAT’S THE INVESTMENT?

Pricing for this retreat varies, depending on what type of package and hotel accommodations you choose. Our base rate for the Heart Accelerator starts at $3,900 and includes: retreat fee, hotel, all meals, daily extra activities, on-the-ground transportation (including airport shuttle), post-retreat coaching, and other perks.
