After a two-and-a-half-year break, Ross Rosenberg and SLRI are excited to announce our 8th Retreat!

FROM 10 TO 6
Max. participants lowered to create a more intimate, meaningful, intense, and enduring experience.

To ensure safety and clinical effectiveness, SLRI only invites individuals whose experience with Self-Love Deficit Disorder/SLDD is more similar than different.

Although you may have heard about Ross Rosenberg's Human Magnet Syndrome and Codependency Cure™ work, few have had the opportunity to personally experience his one-of-a-kind psychotherapeutic, healing, and transformative "Self-Love Recovery Treatment" methods.

Includes updated lectures, large and small group therapy, experiential activities, role-playing, psychodrama-guided therapeutic meditations, and more.

Understand how your unresolved trauma history caused and sustains your core shame, pathological loneliness, and unconscious attraction/addiction to narcissists.

Expect Ross to shake up what you know about SLDD while being put on a path to Self-Love Recovery™.

Learn about the "invisible" trauma responsible for your SLDD and how it is responsible for chronic pain, loss, and suffering.

Through Rosenberg's revolutionary "HITCH Trauma Integration Method," learn about the trauma responsible for your SLDD while becoming acquainted with your "Inner Trauma Child."

A once-in-a-lifetime trauma healing catalyst that helps neutralize one's SLDD-related core shame, pathological loneliness, and habitual attraction to narcissists.

After a much-needed break, Ross Rosenberg and The Self-Love Recovery Institute are excited to announce the resumption of The Self-Love Recovery Intensive Weekend Retreats! Unlike the first eight retreats, this and the following retreats will only include six guests. The decision to reduce the participants by 50% will allow for an intimate, intense, meaningful, and ultimately practical experience. 

Expect Ross to shake up what you know about Self-Love Deficit Disorder™/SLDD (codependency) and either keep or put you on a path to Self-Love Recovery™. Each participant will learn more about their trauma, shame, and pathological loneliness and what triggers the addictive impulse to remain in toxic relationships with pathological narcissists. In addition, all participants will be individually encouraged to connect to the seldom expressed emotions that keep them mired in the dysfunctional muck of their Human Magnet Syndrome driven relationships...

Retreats that included a psychotherapist assistant, Ross is flying solo! This was an easy decision, allowing for a smoother, more consistent, and more productive experience. The Retreat has also been refreshed to incorporate Ross Rosenberg's latest clinical discoveries, especially those pertaining to his Self-Love Recovery Treatment Program.

The event will not only identify the attachment trauma responsible for one's Self-Love Deficit Disorder but also introduces each participant to their "Inner Trauma Child" which is explained in Ross's revolutionary "Healing the Inner Trauma Child (HITCH) Method."

The 20-hour event will combine lectures from Ross Rosenberg with a large group, small group, and paired participant's experiential activities, role-playing and discussions, and a psychodrama experience.

The Retreat includes a two-night stay at The Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in Downtown Bellevue (20-minutes from Seattle), catered meals and snacks (except for Saturday night), retreat materials, a personally signed copy of Ross's new Human Magnet Syndrome book, a $400 credit to be used on any of Ross's video or audio seminars, and a Certificate of Completion.

For an added fee, you will also be given an option to schedule up to two post-retreat psychotherapy sessions with Ross.


  • Friday, September 9th from 3pm to 8pm
  • Saturday, September 10th, from 10am to 6pm
  • Sunday, September 11th, from 8:30am to 3:30pm


The Retreat will serve as a necessary "bridge" over which the participants will travel beyond their suffocating and toxic relationships and closer to the love they always deserved to experience but were never shown how to get...self-love!

Each person can expect to leave a once-in-a-lifetime experience with a wealth of life-changing information to begin implementing what they learned and experienced at the event.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Derek via email at or by phone at (253) 561-7661 ext. 102.

WHY NOT YOU Change happens now. Why not you?! Struggle = strength and you are capable of more than you know. Commit to the most loving thing you will ever do for yourself and attend this retreat. It does no good to please others if you are losing yourself.

This is YOUR JOURNEY! Elevate your mindset and don't be afraid. Fight the fear and become comfortable being uncomfortable. I felt safe to speak my truth and have this new amazing group of individuals to continue helping me and to be my accountability partners in life. I could not be more grateful for this entire experience!

Why not make it through everything you've been through and become the greatest you mentally, spiritually and physically. Do not settle and stop accepting the pain. Don't let anything stop you from being the greatest you. We are beautifully broken and can make the greatest impact on this thing we call life. We are strong! Believe in you, invest in you and lift others up to do the same...

Attending the Self-Love Recovery Retreat was one of my best-ever decisions! It was very nicely organized, and the small group size created a feeling of kinship and safety, enabling comfortable sharing and discussion. Ross is personable and approachable; his talks are sprinkled with humor and he has the gift of knowing how to present his work in a way that makes a deep, multi-layered topic easy to understand. Go!

I attended the Self-Love Recovery Retreat from September 14th, 2018 through September 16th, my story began as a child who was molested at the age of 4 and have lived in fears all of my life. This retreat is a new beginning. I came out of this experience transformed. We were a small group of nine. By the end of the weekend, every one probably knew me better than my family, friends, anyone.

The deeper I went into my pain, the higher I was raised in courage. I turned my pain into something beautiful, turning it into nectar, Ross is not only a great therapist but also a kind human being and healer. David and Karla along with Ross played an important role in my healing as well.

This retreat was an adventure into unknown. However, it was not isolated. It was an invitation to open myself to gifts and growth. It took me to very sweet people which I met during retreat and to new places. Universe is conspiring to support you if you are interested in attending this retreat. Life became an adventure for me once I embraced the beauty inside me. I could not have done this without Ross and his team.

I have been profoundly impacted by the work of Ross Rosenberg and his practical insights about narcissists and codependency (or self-love deficit disorder). I wasn't sure how this event would be and if it would be worth the money. The retreat was both informational and experiential and it clearly gave me next steps in my journey to heal from codependency.

This was one of the best events I have ever been to and I highly recommend anyone dealing with codependency to go. Codependency can be healed so that a person doesn't stay stuck in making the same choices and thinking the same way they always have. I figure if I live another 35-40 years, I will be able to live better, be happier, and make better choices. This is one of the best investments I have ever made!
