GOALS
Participation in this 2-day workshop is intended to help you and your partner:

  • Integrate your verbal emotional intimacy with embodied (physical) emotional intimacy.
  • Expand and increase your experience and understanding of sexual connection within your relationship.
  • Celebrate and expand your capacity for sexual pleasure, play, passion, and expression.
  • Co-create a sexual intimacy that fulfills and pleases both of you.

OBJECTIVES

  • Increase your understanding of your positive and negative sexual cycles, including the role of emotions and attachment longings;
  • Understand how you communicate your attachment longings and needs through embodied and physical emotions and sexuality;
  • Experience body-based connection between you using both in-session and at home/in-private exercises;
  • Identify raw spots and how they affect your physical intimacy;
  • Engage in connecting and collaborative conversations (“hold me tight conversation”) to expand your sense of togetherness in working with your intimacy;
  • Expand your views of the range and variety of human sexual response and expression to help undo experiences of performance anxiety, shame, inadequacy, and brokenness;
  • Begin co-creating a sexual intimacy that fulfills and pleases both of you;
