Outdated and Sexist or Empowering for Women?: Romance Retreat Based on Controversial New York Times Best-Seller Arrives in South Florida
June 13, 2012 by admin
Ft. Lauderdale, FL, June 12, 2012 –(PR.com)– Should a wife let her husband handle all the finances, stop giving her opinion and have sex whenever he wants so they can have a better relationship? Should a single woman listen, rather than talk, on a first date and avoid asking men out? Yes, according to Heart’s Desire International, who is hosting The Lifelong Romance Retreat for women in Ft. Lauderdale June 22nd – 24th along with the New York Times best-selling author of The Surrendered Wife and The Surrendered Single, Laura Doyle.
Heart’s Desire International teaches women to reconnect with their femininity and their longing to be desired. In this age of equality, some critics find the approach outdated and sexist––but not graduates of the Heart’s Desire events, who swear by the effectiveness of the methods in teaching them to have fulfilling relationships.
“Not everyone has gotten the word yet that they can put an end to chronic heartbreak and loneliness by learning a few skills,” says Heart’s Desire International co-founder Gladys Diaz. “This summer hundreds will make that breakthrough at the retreat.”
The organization often receives wedding announcements from graduates of the singles and girlfriends programs and thank-you notes from the wives whose marriages have been transformed into passionate, peaceful, intimate relationships.
“Over a decade ago, Laura Doyle started a romance revolution which is now practiced in 26 countries and 15 languages around the world. Now she is bringing the revolution to South Florida,” adds Diaz.
