For all couples.
Let go into playful, sensual, and nurturing connection with your partner for more passion in your relationship. Kate and Joel Feldman, codirectors of the Conscious Relationships Institute, who have been facilitating deep work with couples for over 30 years, invite you to learn how
- To tune into each other’s need for touch, affection, communication, and pleasure
- The key to satisfying intimate encounters is non-demand touch, inside and outside of the bedroom
- To deepen communication about needs, wants, and preferences through a safe, respectful dialogue process
- To release limiting beliefs about lovemaking, so you and your partner can create your own personal style.
Using dialogue, clothes-on touch and movement, gentle yoga, and meditation, you rekindle passion, rediscover your innate capacity for pleasure, and explore intimacy at its deepest level: The capacity to reveal yourself to another from the core of your being.
