A fresh approach to love that lasts


Imagine the Search is Over...You Found Each Other!

Just imagine for a minute that you have finally met your true love. Someone who admires you but doesn't feel too clingy or needy. A person you are attracted to on all levels. You have physical and emotional chemistry, romance and intellectual stimulation. You are both motivated to grow personally and professionally.

You feel like you have known each other forever. All the single days and past heartaches melt away from your memory as you begin your life as a coupled person. Your friends and family love him (or her) and they fit into your life like a perfect glove.

Does this feel like a fantasy? If it does, that is normal. It will remain a fantasy, a dream, a wanting until you shift your mind.

What we want for you is to take this fantasy and make it real by the power of your mind.

You already possess everything you need to make this happen except one thing, you aren't conscious of the power within you to create an amazing love relationship.

Join us to a deeper self-discovery, a journey that will change your life.

Single doesn't mean you are broken.

Dear Lovable One,

You are not single because something is wrong with you. Finding true love is more than knowing how to flirt or communicate properly with the opposite sex. If you aren’t in a great relationship, it is because you are unconsciously picking people who don't match your ideal or who break your heart.

What if there was something RIGHT with you?

What if you decided NOT to settle and you are holding out for GREAT LOVE because deep in your SOUL you want the highest love?

Dr. Rob Maldonado (psychologist) and Debi (Berndt) Maldonado (author of LET LOVE IN) are on a mission to empower single women and men to discover how to be their true selves, drop the dating games and stop the endless healing and feeling of being wounded that has been implied in so many other programs.

The good news is that you are not wounded, you simply aren’t conscious of what is driving your romantic choices. Our work is based on Carl Jung‘s individuation process and we believe (as he did) that everyone has been born with a great potential for love and that potential is never broken or damaged due to your personal history.

There is a direct path to liberate your mind and heart and welcome the love that has been waiting for you.

Your Limiting Beliefs are a RESULT, not the REASON

You hear all the time that you have to change, clear or reprogram your "limiting beliefs" so you can find your true love. While this may help you feel a little more positive, this will NOT change your relationship dynamics which are unconscious.

Your Limiting Beliefs are the RESULT of a deeper pattern that is causing your relationship problems.

Just changing thoughts to be more positive saying, "I am lovable or worthy" is not going to change the reason why you are still single. Thinking positive only creates a false mask hiding deeper fears and unconscious patterns. The truth is, you don't attract real love by just changing the surface.

Most personal development systems are about building up your ego and that is why you are stuck. There is so much more to you than what you can see on the conscious level. If you want love that is felt deep in your soul, you have to go beyond the surface and meet your own SOUL.

Instead of just reciting positive affirmations, changing your behavior with "self-love" or rewiring our thoughts, you need to have a DIRECT EXPERIENCE at the root of who you are, your true essence. Once you have this experience, you will no longer be attracted to unavailable partners, you will feel NATURALLY CONFIDENT and have a deep KNOWING that you are awesome inside and out.

In order to find your true soul mate, you must first meet your own SOUL.

Tired of Short-Term Fixes and Ready for Lasting Change?

So, we have something FRESH for you to consider...a rethinking of how you approach relationships and finding lasting love.

You see, most programs out there teach short-term fixes. You learn how to act on a date and how to communicate, define boundaries and other behavioral tricks to manipulate someone's feelings for you. Or, you were taught to fix your childhood, heal your past or release your wounds to patch yourself up enough to be loved.

Short-term fixes encourage you approach love and relationships in a short-term way. Short-term fixes hold your mind in a limited pattern and give you fleeting romances and uncertainty of whether the next one will last.

If you shift your focus to a long-term solution so you can get what you really want - that life-long love. Long-term solutions go a little deeper than dating tips and positive thinking or even therapy. Discover a new psychology of personal liberation that will actually save you a ton of time and money as well as get you the greatest love that lasts!

When you approach personal development only to fix your love life, you aren't really committed to personal growth. Seeking a quick-fix will always lead you to meeting the same type of people who are not committed to long-term love.

If you want someone to commit to you on a deeper level, you have to commit to yourself on a deeper level.

Transformation involves more than just an inspirational quote on Instagram or watching a Ted Talk about vulnerability. You need a system that will help you free your mind so that you are no longer being attracted  unconsciously to painful relationships and have an EXPERIENCE of yourself in a completely new way that will forever change you on a deep, profound level.

This process can help you:

  • Find the True Love of Your Life
  • Be free of defenses that keep you from getting close to others or attracting men or women who flee from intimacy
  • Experience better friendships and family relationships
  • Feel in control even when there is a powerful love attraction so you don't lose yourself or your values
  • Believe that the ultimate dream partner is out there for you and go for what you really want in a relationship
  • Live the dream of having a partner who shares your values, honors your spirit and dreams big like you!
  • Cultivate the courage to take risks to go for what you really want in life

Here's What Our Past Students Say


“It looks like the wedding will probably be May 18th.

I’m really excited! Thanks.

I really do think the visualizations for attracting a loving partner was what helped draw us to each other!”

C.B. | Denver, CO

P.S. Look closely! That’s me, Debi Berndt, officiating her wedding in beautiful Colorado!

I am not the same person I was four months ago!

I had to write a testimonial to Debi & Dr. Rob and this work. After years of “work on myself” – signed up for every dating and relationship program ever created, which would temporarily uplift me and renew my hope, but never changed anything, I found ‘Creative Love Detox’ (another class by Debi and Rob), followed by ‘Engaged in a Year’, which lead me to want to attend the ‘Passion & Purpose” live event in their Manhattan Beach home, and now I am in the Elite coaching program because I knew I wanted to continue doing this work.

I can honestly say I am not the same person I was 4 months ago. I confessed to my best girlfriend that I took a course called “Engaged in a Year” – I told her the most beautiful thing that I got out of that course was that I felt WHOLE for the first time in my life. I still wanted a partner to share my life, but the NEEDY part was gone, almost like magic. I was finally able to give myself the love and approval I always looked for ‘out there’. Other courses told me to love myself but never explained how.

I cannot thank Debi and Dr. Rob enough for deciding to share their knowledge and practices which have changed my life in such beautiful and empowering ways. I would not be who I am now without you – much love to you both!

About Carl G. Jung

Carl G. Jung was a visionary psychiatrist and philosopher whose ideas about the mind are only now beginning to be understood. He taught that our Persona is really a mask we wear in order to interact with the world. Jung postulated that within our personal unconscious there dwells the Shadow, an archetype comprised of all the things our conscious mind deems unacceptable, our fears as well as our hidden talents and aspirations. Facing our Shadow and reconnecting with the Collective Unconscious, a deeper layer of the mind common to all humanity and distinct from our personal unconscious, brings us in contact with the Anima, the archetypal feminine in a man, and Animus, the archetypal masculine in a women. Jung called this Individuation, the innate and transformative process that leads to the realization of our higher Self

The Jungian Spiritual Pscyhology ("JSP") program will train you in archetypal psychology, creative shadow and dream work and the use of visualization.
