What IS THE HEART ACCELERATOR?

The Heart Accelerator is a unique individual retreat, designed to get you unstuck and help you solve your biggest challenges, in less than 10 days.

You work 1-on-1 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”.

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

All in less than 10 days.

You’ve 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.

It’s time to accelerate your healing work and get to the bottom of what’s blocking you in life.

Then, you can go off and live a happy life you know you deserve.

The Heart Accelerator helps you quickly unlock your heart and understand its unique language. Once that happens, your life will never be the same again.

What makes The Accelerator unique?

1-ON-1 INDIVIDUALIZED WORK

There are loads of retreats out there, but they’re usually in groups and get no 1-on-1 time with the coach. This can be a major turn-off for someone who is shy or vulnerable, is facing major life challenges, needs to heal, or is at a crossroads in life and not knowing what to do next. In these delicate moments, you need more attention from your coach in order to get truly life-changing results. In the Heart Accelerator, you spend at least 6 hours a day with Christina, doing individual life-coaching sessions, healing work, walking outdoors, meditating, cooking healthy meals together, and so much more.

FAST TRANSFORMATION

There’s a reason we call this retreat an “Accelerator”: you’ll experience profound transformation and breakthroughs on your toughest challenges in less than 10 days. The length of our typical retreat is one week (7-day) 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. Christina uses her unique gifts as a coach and healer to fast-track your transformation by combining the powerful energy that flows through her with practical and actionable tools and exercises. 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 and blue ocean, meditating on lush pastures overlooking endless rolling hills. There’s literally no place on earth like these wild, pristine islands.

YOU DON’T NEED TO LIFT A FINGER

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 what if you could book a retreat from door-to-door? What if you didn’t have to worry about one single thing except packing your bag (using the detailed packing list we provide) and heading to the airport? Through our amazing retreat partners, we’re able to find and book the best flights for you, provide exclusive accommodations and meals, and even take care of all your retreat on-the-ground transportation needs.

DEEP 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. All of your activities are carefully chosen because of their capacity to deeply impact your transformation. Our Accelerator removes all the superficialities of typical retreats and gets 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”).

MODULARITY AND CUSTOMIZATION

Your retreat is completely customized from the start. And that means we can design the best possible experience for you. Want to come in a few days early and explore the island on your own before the retreat starts? Or maybe you want to stay longer, after the retreat ends, and participate in some of Sao Jorge’s world-famous tourist activities such as canyoning, climbing, sailing, or boating? Or perhaps you want to go explore the other neighboring islands? The options are endless and we can help design them. Why not pair some play time 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. You’ll get 2 follow-up coaching sessions and a detailed and customized post-retreat report, filled with recommendations, tools, and resources to help you maximize the retreat breakthroughs. You’ll also receive multiple retreat bonuses that are designed to help you continue your progress forward, even after you go back to the “real world”.

HOW THE ACCELERATOR WORKS

We take all the headaches out of booking a retreat by making it a “door-to-door” experience.

1. WE BOOK A FREE CALL

In this free 45 min video call, you and Christina see if you’re a fit to work together, and she can also answer all your questions about the retreat.

2. FOLLOW-UP

If you and Christina feel you’re a fit to retreat together, you can officially book your retreat and block-off your desired dates by paying the full retreat price upfront (saving you $50) or by depositing 50% of the total retreat cost (the 2nd 50% is due one month after).

3. THE RETREAT

On your departure date, we’ll be tracking your trip and are always on-hand, should you need us. Christina will be waiting for you right outside the airport gate when you arrive for your retreat. Welcome and have a great retreat!

4. POST-RETREAT ROADMAP

After the retreat, you’ll receive a detailed PDF report (roadmap) from Christina, with major takeaways from the accelerator, recommendations, and customized tools to help you maximize your work together.

5. POST-RETREAT SESSION

After the Accelerator, you still have a 60 min video call with Christina, which you can book at your earliest convenience. This post-retreat session is a great way to catch up and let Christina know how you’re doing since returning back to the “real world”.

6. 30 MIN CATCH-UP SESSION

6 months after your retreat, Christina will reach out to schedule a video catch-up session with you, where you can share your progress in the months after the retreat and discuss any challenges or breakthroughs you may be facing since your trip.
