Love to Be Loved

A healing workshop of self-love and fulfilment

3 Day Couples Love to be Loved Couples Retreat €3380 (€1690 each).

5 Day Couples Love to be Loved Couples Retreat €2990 each.

In this exclusive, small-group couple’s retreat participants (whether married, engaged, starting a new relationship or in a committed partnership [gay or straight]), will learn how to re-connect with each on multiple levels.

Many of us struggle with challenges in our relationships and there comes a point when you realise you need outside help to turn things around. In this two-day workshop you will explore what your love needs are, and learn how to first love yourself. Because, after all, if you don’t love yourself – how can you ask this of anyone else?

As individuals we don’t always know what our self-love needs are, and how to satisfy these yearnings. This creates inner conflict as there is an inherent longing to fulfil deep wants, desires and beliefs but often no knowledge of what these are, or how to fulfil them.

It all starts with understanding your emotion, needs and desires – and connecting with your inner self so that you feel acknowledged and supported in a way that makes sense for you. The next part is to be open to understanding what the love language of your partner or loved one is so that you can both begin to communicate each other’s language of love to create a deeper level of connection and trust.

During the workshop Karin shows you how to translate this wisdom into a great personal relationship as well as the skills to deeply align with your significant other (and other loved ones) in a way that makes sense for you both.

Over the two days and two nights you’ll work with Karin and your partner to put everything you learned together into a workbook and prepare your action plan to implement upon your return home.

Before mid- afternoon check-out, we enjoy our last afternoon tea where we’ll share our experiences. We close the retreat with supportive notes valuable for you to keep the magic going at home. We say our goodbyes for now, full of inspiration to create a personal relationship as well as interpersonal ones that you love.

Bon voyage back home, full of inspiration and a deeper understanding on what self-love and love languages mean.

L’Għarix Temple Retreat
The “Love to Be Loved” retreat will be held in a 750 year old villa L’Għarix in Xagħra in Gozo.

The villa is built from the local limestone and is said to be the second oldest house in the town.

L’Għarix has been lovingly restored and renovated and decorated in an elegant country style. It has three bedrooms and a studio clinic where the Hypnotherapy, healing sessions and smaller workshops are conducted.

There is also a large cave where group sessions and workshops as well as meditation in groups and individually happens.

The whole property including the house, studio, garden, private pool and cave all make up this place of healing.

As one enjoys the calming yet spectacular views over the valleys you notice three churches dotted on the horizon. Beach, coastal and town walks are available and a lovely way to relax as you watch the sunset.

L’Għarix Temple Retreat is a place of healing and renewal on all levels.

Local Attractions
L’Għarix Temple Retreat is built a hundred metres behind the Ggantija temples which are recognised by UNESCO as the oldest freestanding buildings in the world. They are over 7,500 years old – older than Stonehenge and the pyramids in Egypt.

L’Għarix Temple Retreat is situated on the one of the Maltese islands, Gozo in the middle of the Mediterranean. Gozo is the second largest of the three islands and we enjoy a relaxed, calm slow rhythm of life. The sandstone buildings, Baroque churches and unspoilt countryside add to create this peaceful atmosphere.
