Trust, love, erotic sexuality, and a core experience of self are building blocks for a vital relationship. Yet, unless our bodies are awakened, these remain elusive ideas rather than familiar body feelings. Until we recognize the themes that distort our views, cause our prejudgments, and perpetuate old defensive patterns, it is difficult to trust or be trusted. For a conscious relationship, or even just one that works well over time, we must know ourselves and have practical body-mind mental health tools to resolve the inevitable dilemmas that interrupt our sense of wellbeing.
Today, most couples want an equal and reciprocal relationship, but few know how to accomplish this attunement of partnership. Once you simultaneously experience the internal feeling of self and attunement with your partner—and know what gets in the way—you will know how you got there and how to achieve it again and again.
Designed as a preventive model, this workshop can help you uncover the key undermining themes in your relationship and provide tools to deal with them before they become terminal problems. It will also provide tools for experiencing heightened aliveness, sustaining a sense of self in the body, making sex better, and opening to existential/spiritual themes of intimacy and aging. With IBP, couples can learn how to regain their hope and excitement.
Please note: This workshop is for couples only.
