Program Details

For couples of any length of commitment and any sexual orientation.

Your intimate partnership has the potential to nourish you and make you stronger, happier, and healthier. Imagine being able to talk about what you really feel and need. Imagine feeling free to be yourself—to dance easily together, touch one another affectionately, and experience the satisfaction of knowing that your partner is really there with you. This retreat is all about relational intimacy: what it is, how it works, and how you can have more of it.

Learn and experience

  • A dialogue process to transform your communication
  • The interpersonal neurobiology of human loving
  • New ways to incorporate pleasurable touch
  • How talking about sex can be safe and fun
  • Massage and gentle partner yoga
  • Dance, music, and laughter
  • The art of attunement: How daily loving can transform your relationship.

Kate and Joel Feldman’s specialty is creating a safe learning environment in which couples can open their hearts and connect.
