Love, Sex and Intimacy

Feb 13 - 15 Begins in 3 months
with Charlie Bloom & Linda Bloom

For individuals and couples, intimacy is to the soul as food is to the body. When the longing for intimacy is satisfied, we experience wholeness and sufficiency, and we can be at one with ourselves and the world. In conjunction with a sexual connection, intimacy can be exhilarating, inspiring, even transcendent. The shadow side of connection is fear of intimacy, which is actually the fear of loss, rejection, shame, and humiliation. These fears are common, even universal, yet their presence need not prevent us from experiencing the joys of intimate contact.
