All life is about relationships. Creating an alive and honest connection with an intimate partner requires us to go deeply into our hearts and allow the courageous self to emerge. This journey to intimacy begins with the path of forgiveness. How does forgiveness lead to intimacy?
• It allows us to let go of anger, resentment, and grief
• It allows the agitated mind to move more deeply into the healing heart
• It resolves separation from ourselves and from others
• It allows us to complete unfinished business
The workshop will present ways to help complete the past, be open to the present, and create the future. It will offer a safe, supportive environment that will include taking risks, intense bodywork, Gestalt imagery, dance, and meditation.
This workshop can be especially helpful for those dealing with boundary issues, the effects of a dysfunctional family life, or addictions that have been used as a defense against intimacy. It is appropriate for everyone: individuals and couples, mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, and healing professionals. The workshop may have up to thirty-four participants.
