Questions & Answers
Q : Is this traditional marriage therapy?
A: NO. I named this website The Healing Resort because the word therapy is defined as "a treatment intended to releive or heal." The Healing Resort is designed to do exactly that, but instead of traditional therapy, The Healing Resort is an educational and personal insight experience curriculum based in part, on the Primary Colors Personality insight tool and relationship research that explains how the relational virus of entitlement is so deadly to relationships.
Q : What is Dawn Billings background and training?
A: Although Dawn has a master's degree in clinical psychology, her doctorate work was focused on the study of personality and organization psychology. Dawn was in private practice for approximately ten years, has done extensive research and training in marriage and family issues, has authored many relationship books and programs, and has trained other relationship professionals on how to better work with couples in distress.
The Healing Resort focuses on creating a new positive conversation that will empower graduates , and insure that each attendee leaves with important new insights, personal understanding and relationship skills that will better enable them to reconnect and heal past wounds. Dawn has years of experience working with people and couples in marital crisis.
Q : What if there are addiction issues?
A: Although this workshop is not designed to overcome addictions, it can help an individual identify specific issues, personality tendencies, and entitled perceptions that contribute to addtions and the insight gained will motivate individuals to seek help for their addictions in order to develop healthy relationships. We recommend that you address any addiction issues with an addiction specialist before you attend The Healing Resort.
Q : Where is The Healing Resort located?
A: The Healing Resort is located in Mesa, AZ. Simply fly into the very convenient Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. For pictures and more detailed information visit the retreat location page.
Q : What if we would like to schedule a private couples intensive or relationship coaching by phone with Dawn Billings?
A: Dawn does, on occasion, offer private relationship 2-day intensives for a couple's privacy. These private intensives can be held at The Healing Resort, or you can fly Dawn to another location of your choice and provide airfare and expenses for your private intensive. Call Dawn 918-605-1492 for more detailed information. Dawn also does phone consultations and sessions for couples.
Q: If we choose to attend a scheduled couple's retreat at The Healing Resort how many couples will attend at any given retreat?
A: These couple's retreats are very intimate small groups. There will never be more than 5 couples at a time, and because Dawn likes them small, most of the time the retreats will be smaller than six couples.
Q: What about the accomodations?
A: The accomodations are amazing. You will be treated like royalty. Check out resort pictures and suite selections here. See retreat gallery pictures. If there is a suite that calls to your heart be sure to call and ask Dawn if it is still available.
Q: What do we bring?
A: Bring your most comfy clothes, curiosity, an open mind, an open heart and most importantly, hope. Hope feeds starving hearts and is such an important thing to bring to a relationship strengthening experience.
Q: What if my spouse won't do the program with me?
A: If you and your spouse are planning to attend The Healing Resort together, then definitely take advantage of the savings and register to attend as a couple.
But if you're alone trying to heal YOU and understand how to save your marriage, then you want to attend on your own to be given the tools you need to single-handedly improve your situation and motivate your unwilling spouse to finally join you in the process. It does NOT take 2 to Tango. ONE PERSON CAN SAVE AND RESTORE A MARRIAGE. (Sometimes a dysfunctional and extreme marriage needs to die and be born again as the marriage God intended for you to share.) Dawn Billings will show you how.
Q. Can The Healing Resort save my marriage and restore the love we once had?
A: Yes, but it is up to you to take the tools and insights you gain from the training and commit to using them to heal the dysfunction of your current way of interacting with one another. If you are willing to learn a new, positive, respectful way of perceiving, and relating to, your partner healing miracles can definitely occur. (Like I mentioned above, sometimes a dysfunctional and extreme marriage has wounded its partners so that it is on life support. I have found that these marriages often need to die and be born again as the marriage God intended for you to share.)
Q: When does the next program begin?
A: Call 918-605-1492 for more information about the next Couples Therapy retreat at The Healing Resort.
Q : How much does it cost? Where are the details? How do I register?
A: The scheduled Couple's Healing Retreats costs $2500 for one person attending, and only $3,000 for two people or a couple to attend. Why do I mention two people? Because there are times when two very good friends, or another family member would like to attend the training instead of a spouse. This is fine and very often, the second person attending can support your chosen changes when you return home. (*Note: To receive savings, both people must stay in same suite.)
B: If you choose to schedule Dawn for a 1-on-1 private couple's intensive the price is $6,000 for the 2-day intensive at the Executive Resort.
Q: Do you have an installment payment plan?
A: Yes, you can schedule monthly payments several months in advance so that you can more easily handle the expense of the training.
A personal note from Dawn:
I have done everything I can to make this unique learning experience the most reasonable, fun, relaxing and impactful way to help you heal and save your marriage. Although I have been an advocate for marriage for over 45 years, I understand what happens to relationships that causes them to fail the people in them. I was married for 20 years. Got divorced and began to dedicate myself to understanding what causes marriages to end. I researched diligently, studied unceasingly, and created a way to help people fall in love again by learning the causes of relational destruction and finding the solution. After 12 years of being single, God used what I had learned to rebirth my marriage. Yes, after 12 years, my husband, and father of my children and I remarried and the second time is a thousand times better than the first. I will happily share these amazing relationship healing secrets with you.
