VillaBerta Gallery presents:  “Dr. Stella Resnick’s earth-shattering new book, The Heart of Desire…is a very candid and, at times, sexually explicit text about how pleasure nurtures us as individuals and helps us thrive in life…An amazing work.”
Jay Weston, Huffington Post

Why do you suppose so many people overestimate the value of talking about problems and underestimate the role of pleasure in deepening the bond in a relationship? In this talk and book signing, Stella will explore what cutting-edge research reveals about the everyday love life of intimate partners. Especially, she’ll focus on:

· How the nonverbal cues in body language, facial expression and voice, are more powerful than words in strengthening the bond between intimates.
· How pleasure is an art with its own aesthetics.
· How honing skills for giving and receiving pleasure can positively impact every aspect of life and loving.

We are also showing the "Pleasure Principle" art exhibit featuring seven amazing artists curated by Charity Burnett.

Dr. Stella Resnick will be giving a talk at 7:30 p.m.

Reception with appetizers and drinks!

Residential parking and address will be emailed to you.

    Wonderful...thanks for opening your lovely home. The paintings were lovely and was very engaged in Stella's presentation...wish it could have gone longer...she has many of the same insights and a few others that were genuinely helpful in understanding where I had been, where all I went throughout my adult life so far, and...where I would like to navigate it further...full circle with the facts :)...many thanks.

    Dr. Freaud was void of comprehending women, his theories were quite male centric and thus was half involved as to what makes us, us.

    According to Sigmund Freud's theory the ‘pleasure principle’ is the driving force that strives to fulfill our most basic and primitive urges, including hunger, thirst, anger, and sex. Complementing the above with art, oh, boy VillaBerta, can’t wait…
