Joy to You & Me invites you to escape from winter and join
Robert & Susan in celebrating their relationship recovery adventure on a

A 7-Day Exotic Western Caribbean Cruise
Round-trip  from New Orleans February 27th to March 6th 2011

We are going to Celebrate the gift of a relationship lived in a Recovery / Spiritual / Tranformational context on this cruise and want to invite Family and Friends to come join us on this Caribbean Cruise.

Robert and Susan have created the space to have a transformational relationship using Robert's pioneering formula for Spiritual Integration and Emotional Balance through Internal Boundaries.  For anyone who would like to learn this integration formula - that is the missing piece for people on a recovery / healing / spiritual path - Robert will be offering a special cruise version of his Intensive Training.  In addition, for the first time ever, a stage two / advanced integration process group experience will be available to those who are in a romantic relationship or ever want to be in one again. Robert & Susan will jointly facilitate this group. (Info beneath the cruise info below.)

Whether you have any interest in the workshop or not, we would love to have you join us on this cruise. There are tons of entertaining things to do on the cruise and exotic locales to visit for anyone who is looking for an adventure (and escape from what is fast becoming a record breaking winter.)

A special cruise version of Intensive Training in Robert Burney's Pioneering Spiritual Integration Formula for Inner Healing ~ Spiritual Integration & Emotional Balance thru Internal Boundaries

For anyone who has wanted to attend Robert's Intensive Training workshop but found traveling to San Diego too challenging here is your opportunity. Those of you on the East Coast or in the Midwest who would like to learn his Pioneering Transformational Formula for Inner Healing and Spiritual Integration can do it while escaping from the winter in late February.  What a deal!  
(Those of you from all other States & Countries are also invited of course.)

Robert Burney
Robert Burney, author of   Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls (which has been called "one of the truly transformational works of our time"), is a codependency counselor, inner child healing pioneer, and Spiritual Teacher. He has developed a pioneering approach to codependency recovery - an inner child healing paradigm - that offers a powerful, life changing formula for integrating Love, Spiritual Truth, and intellectual knowledge of healthy behavior into one's emotional experience of life - a blueprint for individuals to transform their core relationship with self and life.

Robert's work has been compared to John Bradshaw's "except much more spiritual" and described as "taking inner child healing to a new level."
He teaches people how to relax and enjoy life in the moment, while healing and developing a more Loving relationship with self - which them makes it possible to develop healthier relationships with others.

Robert Burney's Day long
Intensive Training Workshop

"What is so valuable, what I believe is unique, about the approach to inner child healing that I have been guided to develop and refine, is that it provides a formula for integrating Spiritual Truth and intellectual knowledge of healthy behavior into one's emotional relationship with life.

It does not matter how much Spiritual Truth, how many mystical experiences of oneness, how in tune with Love, you can feel in certain moments - if you cannot integrate it into your life in a way which changes your emotional experience of life on a moment to moment, day to day basis.  You can go to therapy for many years, read all the Spiritual and self help books, go to workshops and seminars and lectures - compile encyclopedic intellectual knowledge of what healthy behavior is - and still be reacting to old wounds in the relationships that mean the most to you.

The missing ingredient for so many people who have been seeking for many years, is how to integrate what you know into how you feel about your experience life.  That is what I teach people - because it is what I have spent many years learning." - Co-Creation: Owning your Power to Manifest Love

Some quotes from Testimonials for Intensive Training Day:

My life has been much better since I went to your seminar. Thank you." 

"I found this session to be very useful in seeing the what & the why of "my" reality.  The understanding I have gained gives me hope in my future. 
This has been the greatest gift I have ever given myself." 

"Robert's spiritual & inner childwork Intensive Training Day has been nothing short of magical!!  What I learned will help me build a strong and realistic foundation of how to love myself unconditionally!
Robert's work is a gift which keeps on giving the more and more I practice it!"

"You work is
more brilliant in person than I could have imagined." 

"Thank you, Robert. I have already felt a
huge sense of peace .  You have set something in motion in me. I can't tell you how good it feels." 

"This training is not only a clear nuts and bolts approach to recovery, but likely a key insight into the next revolutionary model of recovery.  I feel as if I have a much clearer map."

"I believe you've assembled all of the major pieces of "the puzzle of Recovery" with your work (in a way that has never been done before)."

"This day has been transformational for me - it made me want to further my personal work.  Robert presents his material in a straight forward way - it simplifies the complicated."

"Robert carries an amazing message of healing for the entire human race.  Anyone who is ready to face their issues would benefit tremendously from this simple recipe.  Thank you Robert!  You made a huge impact on my recovery & my concept of a Higher Power."

"Robert is a very , compassionate intuitive, and intelligent soul who shares his insights to you in such a clear, fun, and poignant way that your life will be forever changed."

"Robert Burney's training day was so inspirational and enlightening.  He was loving and warm and presented profound life changing material in a very not intimidating way.  Magical!"
"It is very easy for me to write about how important it is to communicate in an intimate relationship - how vital it is to work through tough issues by talking about them.  It is much harder in practice.  The old theory versus actual experience conundrum.  The very thing - that emotionally intimate relationships get messy - which makes it is so important for me to be willing to play with the other kids in the Enchanted Forest.  The "messy" gift in my life today that has been made possible by the fear of intimacy processing . . . . I am no longer living in comfortable isolation writing theoretically." - Joy2MeU Update Newsletter March 2007

"One of the tricky things about romantic relationships is that the only way to really learn to do a romantic relationship in a healthy way is to be in one.  We all need time alone between relationships to process our feelings, do our grieving, and heal our relationship with self - but ultimately, it is only in a relationship that the buttons to our deepest wounds and greatest fears are pushed.  That is why romantic relationships are such a great arena for Spiritual growth - because they are so personal that they bring us face to face with our deepest wounds." - Healthy Relationships - Part 5, Healthy Joyous Sexuality

"The thing that is so important about the issue of Romantic Relationships is to realize how we were set up to "fail" in romance - to really get it on a gut level, so that we can forgive ourselves." - The Heartbreak of Romantic Relationships
Stage Two / Advanced Relationship Group Process Experience

Susan and Robert, who first met in person on Jan. 23rd 2005, have been living together since June 15th 2005 - a record for longest relationship for both of them (by 2 years for Susan and 3 years for Robert.)
 They have been able to accomplish this - despite huge fear of intimacy issues for both of them - because Susan has integrated Robert's inner child healing practice into her recovery (and helped him to apply the formula he developed in practice instead of just understanding it in theory.)  In addition Susan has brought tools, perspectives, and knowledge she acquired in her involvement with Landmark Education into the relationship to facilitate breakthroughs and transformation for both of them.  (Susan will be offering a free Introduction to Landmark Education separately for anyone interested.)   In this group experience, for the first time ever, Robert and Susan will be sharing their experiences to help others achieve breakthrough and transformation in their relationships.  If you are in a relationship now, this experience can help you start seeing immediate transformation because it will facilitate both seeing your self and your partner more clearly and learning vital tools and perspectives to help you communicate and work through issues. (It can be magical for a couple to do this work together.)  If you are not in a relationship now, this experience can help you gain the courage, faith, and willingness to create the possibility of a relationship in your future.  Romantic relationships are the greatest arena for spiritual and emotional growth available to us.
Robert's Intensive Training will cover 6 hours on the first day at sea - plus an additional session one evening during the cruise and a 2 hour session on the final day at sea.  The Group experience will begin with an hour and half session on Tuesday morning before docking at Costa Maya, two evening sessions and a 2 hour session on the final day at sea.
Here is Susan's vision for this group experience

"Susan and Robert invite you to practice the formula for spiritual integration with them in small recovery groups.  Spiritual alignment with the higher truth requires the creation of a clearing for transformation to take place. You would not expect to frost an burned cake and have a delicious desert. We have to practice the distinctions and apply them to our romantic relationships. The first step in this process requires being willing to see ourselves more clearly. The small group is a wonderful way to get invaluable insights into our twisted ways of relating to our partners in both romance and finance. Together we will share how our journey of self discovery while learning to love ourselves has created a space for our relationship to prosper, expand and produce unexpected results in the areas of intimacy and passion. How much love and joy do you want in your current or forthcoming romantic relationship? Inquire with us into the possibility that you are inside of your commitment to your recovery by sharing with us in a small group. This cruise vacation is the perfect setting to practice building and developing your ability to expand on breakthroughs in the face of breakdowns. Come and practice with us and others while enjoying freedom from the day to day survival associated with life. Learn to bring this relaxed, playful and maybe even frivolous fun loving adventurous spirit into all of your relationships!"
