For couples.

Intimacy is to the soul as food is to the body. When the longing for intimacy is satisfied, we experience wholeness and sufficiency. In conjunction with a sexual connection, intimacy can be exhilarating, inspiring—even transcendent.

Connection’s shadow side is fear of intimacy, which is actually the fear of loss, rejection, shame, and humiliation. Intimate contact requires that we learn ways to skillfully respond to these fears. This workshop addresses how we can do that and

  • Maintain an open heart in the face of powerful emotions
  • Redirect the energy contained within the full range of our feelings toward states of heightened awareness
  • Recognize and neutralize patterns that limit deep connection
  • Identify what it takes to feel love in its physical, sexual, and spiritual splendor.
