About the Institute


Heart to Heart Relationship Recovery Institute is an interfaith organization specializing in Metaphysical and Holistic Healing modalities such as Coaching, Hypnotherapy, Past Life Regression, Spirit Release, and Ministerial Duties. This institute was created in order to teach people the skills they need to develop, nurture, and maintain dynamic and prosperous relationships in all areas of their life.

Leif and Kristen Burkhardt-Hanson are relationship recovery coaches specializing in helping couples who have experienced exceptional adversity in their lives such as drug addiction, sex addiction, alcoholism, chronic and critical illness, infidelity, previous divorce, domestic violence, and more. Through relationship coaching, clinical hypnotherapy, and establishing a spiritual foundation they will help you to address and overcome the challenges you may currently face.

Relationship Recovery involves taking a critical and honest look at your current marriage (or partnership) and see what areas are preventing you both from having a happy, intimate, and successful union. It can often be challenging and upsetting to look at these areas, but neglecting them can certainly make them worse. By sitting down with a coach who has experienced the same or very similar situations as you have helps make the task less fearful and more empowering. No one’s relationship is perfect, in fact the divorce rate for first marriage is 40 percent, second marriage 68 percent, and third marriages is 78 percent! Instead of being another statistic, let’s get to work repairing yours!

UPDATE! June 14, 2014

Hello and welcome to our blog! I am Kristen Burkhardt-Hanson and I am so happy to announce some very exciting changes in our business! Please read:

Number 1: We have changed our name from Sacred Circle Ministry to Heart to Heart Relationship Recovery Institute. Although I am a minister and my husband is studying to become a minister, we are TEACHERS first. Of course, we still offer spiritual support and will perform ministerial duties such as weddings, blessings, and other ceremonies. We just feel that teaching people, with similar life history as ours, how to have happy and high functioning relationships, is where our true spiritual calling lies.

Number 2: We have added an internet radio program!! It’s called Heart to Heart with the Hansons and it can be found online at We are on, which is a subsidiary of  iHeart Radio. You can click that link and it takes you right to the radio show home page where you can not only listen to the show live, you can also listen to previous episodes that we have been recorded. The radio show gives us a platform to discuss the same aspects as we do here and on our website but on a much more deep and personal level. We have several ways you can participate: You can call in the number that is announced at the beginning of the show, you can post a question in the chat room on the show site, or email us at  We have been broadcasting live on Sunday evenings at 7 pm Mountain time, but we are considering changing the day because if time conflicts on Sunday evenings. For more info please join our mailing list located on our home website at!

Number 3: We are offering coaching packages in 4, 8, and 12 week packages. We have designed our very own Relationship Recovery Coaching program that can be done completely online in the comfort of your own home via Skype or cell phone! We have designed a system that includes weekly coaching sessions, assignments, exercises, and full accountability by us, your coaches. Our first 4 week session is the heart and core of our entire relationship institute based on the 4 areas we believe that are paramount in building and re-building your relationship with others and with yourself. You may ask, why would this be for myself? Because until you are emotionally, spiritually, physically, and mentally healed it is impossible to have a mutually satisfying and empowering relationship with anyone.
