Bio-hacking the Language of Intimacy

Nov 11 - 16, 2018 Begins in 2 weeks
with Mike Lousada & Louise Mazanti

Our hearts yearn for love, but patterns in our neurobiology can inhibit us. The way we currently know how to relate with others emotionally and sexually is our language of intimacy. This language is inherited from parents, peers, and culture, and operates mostly unconsciously, hijacking our nervous system to recreate experiences that compromise our dreams and desires. Bio-hacking your language of intimacy means understanding your emotional patterning around sex, relationship, and intimacy, and using neuroscience and biochemistry to change it.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
