Workshop Details

How do we cultivate and sustain fulfilling intimate relationships? True intimacy with another begins with caring for one’s self, something many of us lose sight of when we’re busy parenting children, building our careers, engaging in new romance, or dealing with divorce, grief, or loss. Mindfulness practice offers us the opportunity for deep listening when we question, Who am I and what do I want? Intimacy training gives us tools to reclaim self and build a greater capacity for relationship.
In this confidential circle of women, we explore issues that challenge us to stay present and fulfilled in our ever-changing lives. Through personal one-on-one sessions, group processes, and periods of personal reflection, you will be taught effective practices for cleanly expressing and receiving authentic emotions without blame or judgment. When we rediscover the joy of being fully present, emotional expression becomes fuel for our passion and creativity whether we feel excitement, anger, joy, fear, or sadness. Body meditation, voice, movement, and storytelling help us affirm our spiritual nature, allowing us to connect with a deeper knowing. From this place we can awaken to our unconscious patterning, learn to let go of behaviors that no longer serve us, and cultivate a more intimate life.
A list of things to bring to the workshop will be sent to participants after registration.
