Workshop Details

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.
This workshop combines a heart-centered, humanistic approach with neuroscience to increase your ability to be authentic, sensitive, vulnerable, playful, innovative, deep, and powerful in your intimate life. You will bring consciousness to the ways you hold back, and learn how to let go, to create the love, intimacy, and connection you’re longing for. Based on the pioneering approach of Psychosexual Somatics® Therapy, bio-hacking your intimacy will engage your brain, body, and emotions in new ways of engaging with life itself. There is no nudity in the workshop, and it welcomes both singles and couples.
