GHC Presentation - The Ecstatic Embrace

  • Nov 17, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

At the heart of our humanity is a deep desire to feel connection: to ourselves, to others, to our lives and the world around us. The Ecstatic Embrace is a meditative hugging practice that naturally brings us into an experience of this state of connectedness, which is felt as a deep sense of safety and comfort.

This intimate afternoon workshop will feature hands-on experience of this powerful work in a safe and protected manner.  You will have the opportunity to be engaged with a number of different people, and all hugging will be done standing.  The impact of this work is surprisingly powerful and the GHC is excited to bring you this profound experience of intimacy, healing and transformation.  Some of the benefits of this work are:

Increases in the area of self-esteem, Deepening of intimacy within relationships, Assistance with grief and loss, Relief from anxiety, depression and pain.


Come join us on Sunday afternoon November 17th from 3:00pm-6:00pm for this compelling experiential workshop.  As usual, we will follow the event with a social-hour pot-luck, so bring a delicious snack to share. 

Creative Intelligence is located at 4988 Venice Boulevard on the south side of the street just west of the corner of LaBrea.  Parking is free and plentiful. 

See you next Sunday!

Steve Maher was drawn to his practice using the ecstatic embrace through an intuitive vision and first began this work ten years ago.  Since then, he has graduated as certified therapist from the Los Angeles Radical Aliveness Core Energetics Institute.
