Kintsugi Recovery Intensives

What is a Kintsugi Recovery Intensive?

A Recovery Intensive is an opportunity to devote three to five days to your healing or toward the transformation of your relationship. It requires a commitment, without distractions or excuses, and a willingness to do some hard emotional work.

We encourage you to aim for a Kintsugi Recovery. We build our customized intensives on the principle of “the act of embracing the flawed or the imperfect. When Kintsugi is used to mend together broken pottery, the cracks are highlighted, rather than hidden. The flaw is shown and celebrated. The imperfect can become its own kind of perfect.”

3-Day, 4-Day and 5-Day Kintsugi Recovery Intensives

A Recovery Intensive is not a cure nor a replacement for ongoing psychotherapy or a recovery lifestyle. However, for many people, traditional weekly sessions alone are too brief and infrequent to tap into the deeper, underlying issues that prevent change. Nor do they allow you to build enough momentum to translate insights into a change after the session is over. If you are at an impasse, the sustained, dedicated time at a Kintsugi Recovery Intensive can create the conditions to move beyond the gridlock in your life.

Jump Start or Deeper Dive?

In some cases, an intensive is designed to give you a jump-start on your recovery process or move you into a deeper level of work. In other cases, a multiple-day intensive helps you to identify and address the obstacles that have prevented you from forward progress. For some, this may involve getting to the root of addiction or addressing the damage of a sexual or emotional betrayal; for others, this may involve facing the impact of relational trauma or an intimacy-starved relationship.

Digging Deep

Although each intensive is customized to meet your unique needs, 3-day, 4-day, and 5-day Recovery Intensives often involve some combination of education and multiple, daily individual, couple, and/or group marathon sessions. Our intensives are active and require you to be active in working on your goals during your time with us, including in between sessions. With the coaching of your facilitator, you will supply plenty of time and effort during the intensive as well as develop a plan of action to follow after completing the program. It is called an intensive for good reason!

We offer a variety of three, four and five-day customized Kintsugi Recovery Intensives for individuals, couples and groups, including:

Partner Betrayal Trauma
Problematic Sex or Pornography
Intimacy Anorexia
Family of Origin
Trauma Healing
Somatic Healing

Are 3, 4 and 5-Day Intensives Helpful to Everyone?

Just as there are no guarantees that medicine, counseling, or dealing with problems on your own will solve them, multi-day intensives are not the best method for everyone. If you are not ready or willing to roll up your sleeves and dig deep during your intensive, it is unlikely that you will reap the benefits.

Intensive Recovery Healing does not schedule intensives when active suicidal or homicidal thoughts, domestic violence, Dissociative Identity Disorder, or serious mental illness are present. If your medical doctor has advised you against an intensive due to being at a critical point of a serious medical disorder, we will not schedule an intensive until you have been medically cleared.
