Transforming Fear of Intimacy to Create Loving Connections

Being close and warm feels so good. It's a basic human need. Yet many of us are afraid of getting close. We've learned that being vulnerable and open leads to pain and hurt. If you want deeper, more loving connection with others, join us as we explore the reasons we fear intimacy, show you ways to release the fear, and give you techniques to create more connection in your life.
Lead by Cathy Vartuli,
Love Offering

What if you had the skills to create connection consciously…
...on purpose?

It’s easier than you think!

Join us for a 2 hour gathering starting with a potluck. Then we’ll guide you through skills and exercises that will help you open up and relate to people in new ways. Get over your anxiety of breaking the ice, and practice integrating those skills with others who are learning and enhancing their skill sets and expanding their social networks, too. Meet people in a playful, low pressure environment.

Where and When? Saturday, February 23 at 7:30- 9:30pm at the Dallas Meditation Center on 727 South Floyd Road.

Who Can Attend? Open to anyone 18 or older who wants to learn how to connect more easily with others, in a fun, friendly atmosphere. (It really can be fun to make friends and romantic connections!)

What is a Connection Party?

We start with a potluck. Bring something yummy to share! (Bring your own drinks. No alcohol, no drugs)

We’ll guide you through some exercises that will help you feel safe and confident meeting people, and that will allow you to connect more authentically and easily. At 9:30, we’ll wrap things up and send you on your way, with some new friends, and new confidence!

What does it Cost? Love offering to help pay for the space is gratefully accepted. Space is limited, RSVP if possible. Please tell your friends! To RSVP, or if you have questions, email: [masked]
Leave with new friends and new confidence!
