Do you desire more connection and sexy spark, but aren’t sure how to get there? This transformational workshop provides the missing piece in developing conscious dating and relationship skills. - and this daylong is the PREREQUISITE for our monthly Community Grad Night Potluck and Connection & Pleasure Lab Practicum. CTL is for YOU if you are: * PARTNERED and want to deepen your connection and enliven the intimacy in your relationship. * SINGLE and want to increase your confidence and connect with other conscious singles in a safe, structured, non-sexual framework. IMPORTANT: This event is advertised through multiple channels. RSVPs here do not reflect actual attendance or hold your spot. REGISTER HERE TO SECURE YOUR SPOT: BE SURE TO BUY YOUR TICKET EARLY, AS THIS WILL SELL OUT IN ADVANCE. Is your body less responsive than it used to be and your arousal more elusive? Do you lack confidence you can satisfy your lover? Do you have a hard time asking for - or even knowing - how you want to be touched? Is there a ceiling to how much pleasure you allow yourself to feel? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will not want to miss this life-changing training! It will equip you with the awareness, tools and skills to create deeper intimacy and spark greater pleasure than you can imagine. In this experiential Daylong you will: * Examine the core beliefs that block you from asking for what you truly want. * Practice skillfully communicating your boundaries, needs & desires. * Give and receive the nourishing, non-sexual touch you desire (and non that you don't). * Learn the maps and communication tools to explore new access to your unique pleasure. *Embody the four quadrants of giving and receiving in the Wheel of Consent by Betty Martin. * Discover what allows you to open to pleasure more fully. * Experience the freedom and permission to be fully self expressed. ...All within a safe, consensual, non-sexual framework We begin by creating a Field of Agreement that quickly creates an environment of honoring ourselves and each other. Through a series of playful experiential exercises you will practice the essential intimacy skills of asking for what you want in real time - an essential skill to receiving the nourishment you desire – and setting boundaries around what you don't want – another essential skill in creating healthy intimacy. Developing these skills over time allows you to show up more fully in your power and pleasure and forge authentic, nourishing connections in all areas of your life. "What an incredible event! The sequence of exercises not only broke the ice, but developed a real feeling of acceptance and trust." - Mike "My wife and I came in feeling hopeless and are leaving hopeful.
