Strategies of Intimacy

Join Chris and Keli Gingolph as they examine the unconscious forces that can either help or harm the intimacy in a relationship. Together we will explore how the "Map of the Relationship" can illuminate the path to happiness by circumventing complications, while offering a richer, more robust map of the world than we can create on our own. We will also learn how the unconscious forces that inexplicably create challenges in our relationships can be turned around and leveraged to create connection and happiness by deciding that instead of fighting with each other, to fight together AGAINST the problem. All the while avoiding instances where we may achieve closure prematurely leaving our partner unfulfilled and creating missed-communication.


Chris has been studying and working with NLP for 25 years. He formally trained with Tad James (Practitioner and MP) and later with Richard Bandler & John LaValle (CE & PE). Although, he no longer accepts private clients he uses NLP daily in a sales and teaching capacity to help people quickly gain confidence and skill with unfamiliar technologies.

Keli was first introduced to NLP by Chris and has seen it make profound differences in her own life. She is a healer and Reiki Master who has enjoyed the benefit of daily instruction for the last four years from Chris, who is a natural teacher. Recently she also decided to undergo formal training in NLP and was blessed to be a part of Tom Best's final Evolutionary NLP & NLP Practitioner Classes, the latter completed by Keith Fail.

Chris and Keli share a passion for happy, successful relationships that grew from their own life experiences as they searched for "the perfect partner". They had many varied learning experiences leading up to the point where they finally found one another. From the beginning of their relationship, they knew that something was different, and as that realization set in, they sought to understand the "Difference that made the difference". Together, they diligently and playfully analyze their relationship, applying NLP principles to it, extracting any patterns they find, and above all, ensuring that they ecologically make the relationship more fulfilling, more fun, and more habitually wonderful! In the NLP spirit of sharing what we learn, they have decided to bring their patterns of playfulness and models of a happy marriage to the community as a whole.

    Thank you guys for the awesome feed back! We had a great time presenting and hope to do it again at some point! In the meantime if anyone wants updates on other events send us a note at [masked] and we will put on a list to be notified for upcoming presentations. That is also a great way to get in touch for private coaching!

    This is the first time I'd ever seen Keli and Chris at the front of the room. I LOVED the M&M exercise :-) and the group that went to Trudy's afterwards had fun with discussing this topic. Many thanks to Keli, Chris, and John for putting this together!

    Great meetup! Good questions, intriguing answers, simple, startling visualizations to explain the premise. Looking forward to Keli & Chris's book. (Very nice to talk after with a small group from the meetup!)

      I didn't get to thank you for posting instructions -- which made finding it easy. Google had me looking after the railroad tracks! Thank you!

    Afterwards a couple of people, including the presnters got together for dinner. Overall was a packed room with a detailed oral presentation of models for relationships, and lots and lots of MnMs. ;-)

    For those that haven't been to this location [and may have the same difficulties finding it that I did] It is the very next parking lot entrance just barely past Sherlocks Bar. Before the railroad tracks. It's not easy to see, kinda easy to miss. The building sits back out of view from Burnett. Hope this helps. Smiles
