The exercises in this retreat are designed to help you open your awareness to, and reclaim aspects of, your being that you may have split yourself off from. This opening and reclaiming will enable you to have more access to the full range of human experience.


If I hadn’t experienced it, I wouldn’t have believed that an “on-line retreat” could create such a shift in my understanding of forgiveness, a combination of “acceptance and compassion”…especially for a “non-techie.” The site was easy to log in to & to return to each day.

What did I learn in the retreat that I will use in my life? I came to a much deeper understanding of what doing my own heart-work truly means for me in all the circles of my life. My definition of “forgiveness” expanded beyond one individual to a much more global & spiritual understanding. After completing the LovingKindness meditation, I realized that this is the world that I dreamed of as a young child before the pain & hurt began, which had been forgotten until doing the Forgiveness Retreat. I now believe that “lovingkindness” can now extend beyond myself & those I love.

A life changing family event brought me to the threshold of the on-line 5 Day Forgiveness Retreat. Unconditional trust in Dale led me through the door.

The retreat is simple in navigation, rich with music, heartfelt and heartbreaking text and one of the most powerful and passionate programs I have ever committed to.

At the conclusion of this retreat the appreciation that five days could create such a radical difference in my understanding of what forgiveness encompasses was another life changing event. Learning to forgive is not just an exercise to apply to one particular person or set of circumstances. It is a way of life.

I am a wife and mother of two beautiful girls.  I am fighting a rare cancer. Before I met Dale, I did not realize how much my emotional baggage had affected my health. I had so much anger and bitterness in my heart, and it was eating me alive. Holding on to anger and bitterness is like taking poison and then waiting for the other person to die!

Dale is a miracle worker — my life will never be the same!  In only five months, I transformed the anger in my life into peace! Through Dale’s Heartwork techniques and his meditation class, he helped me realize and achieve what I really, really wanted in life…. I have never before felt so FREE and full of Peace, Love, Joy, Compassion, and Forgiveness!  Thanks to Dale’s online Forgiveness Retreat, I was able to forgive the people who had hurt me in the past.

I was shocked at how my physical symptoms cleared up.  I had suffered chronic back pain for most of my adult life and now it’s gone!  After I was diagnosed with cancer, I could not sleep more then 3-4 hours at a time.  Now I can sleep for 8 hours straight! My cancer markers had reached the danger zone, a level of 2.5, back in August. The combined effects of alternative treatments and Heartwork surely both played significant roles in bringing my cancer markers down to 0.0!  As I said before, Dale is a MIRACLE worker!!

For anyone willing to get to the heart of their problems, to have an open mind, and to work towards living and having Peace, Dale is the perfect helper for you to achieve what you really want. He also does Skype sessions for those who live outside of the Rochester area. There isn’t enough money in the world to pay Dale for all he has done in my life.

I hope this sparks a change in your life. “Live in the Present, so you won’t dwell in the Past or worry about the Future.” Thanks to Dale and God, I have had many breakthroughs and now have an open heart full of Peace!

The workshop helped me to see that there is no one to blame for the things that “happen to me,” but that what happens is an opportunity for me to heal.

The online Forgiveness Retreat is one of the most powerful personal retreats I’ve ever done. It’s hard to describe why this is such important and powerful work, but let me try and put it to you this way:

  1. If you have someone you clearly know you need to forgive (and that person could also be you!) — even if just for your own sake, not even theirs — you should do this program.
  2. If you can’t think of anyone you want to forgive, but “something” appears to be in your way, you should absolutely do this program.
  3. You may be shocked and even scared to find out that there aspects of your personality (sometimes your whole personality — that’s the scariest one) have merely been responses to some event that happened ages ago…and the instant you begin to unravel that?…Prepare to be challenged in ways you didn’t even anticipate….and then to be opened to something far more beautiful, far more profound….

I can’t recommend this program enough. It is an extremely powerful, valuable, and beautiful opportunity. It was especially helpful to be able to do it online from any location. I live in New York City, but did the retreat while spending time in Montreal. This just shows how it can be done by people anywhere, even if you are traveling.

Dale’s Forgiveness Retreat is something I seek to do again before the year is through to experience it again and go deeper. It works best with several days of uninterrupted time.
