Intimacy 101 is for those seeking to grow in their capacity for meaningful and enjoyable intimacy, at the emotional, physical and sexual levels. We are all on a journey in this part of our lives. This group is geared towards individuals and couples that are overcoming fear and pain in intimacy or are exploring and growing in intimate awareness and empowerment. While socializing is encouraged, our workshops are primarily intended to be safe, structured environments within which to learn, practice and enjoy new skills to use with your current or future love partner.

About Your Facilitator:

As someone who experienced childhood sexual violation, I have a lifelong track record of valuing emotional and physical safety in intimacy. My personal journey in healing from challenges in intimacy, including talk therapy, sex therapy, workshops and support groups, has given me extensive experience, skills and resources, that allow me to "pay it forward" as I help others on their journeys. My training as a Surrogate Partner, with the International Professional Surrogates Association (IPSA) provided me with valuable tools that I share now as an Intimacy Coach.  I work privately with individuals and couples and  provide educational workshops to the public and to professionals regarding healing and growth in intimacy.


Update: 11/15/16

Hi everyone. I continue astounded at the level of interest that exists for this group, in your continued membership despite my inactivity, and in the continued requests I receive from others to join. 

To update you, over the last year I've been deep on a journey to more wellness which still continues today.  In early 2015 I suspended my training as a surrogate partner and have been inactive in my role as an intimacy coach, both here and off site. In part, I am working to clarify what role, if any, this work can have in coexisting with other parts of my life. 

I trust that if you read this group's goals, you also are on a meaningful journey and I honor your commitment to improving your self and your relationships. While my stuff gets sorted out, I would like to invite you to learn more about our co-organizer Anna Villalobos, whom we've featured in a few webinars. In addition to being the woman who makes me a better man, she's a trained and gifted coach for health and relationships. You can learn more about her at: www.healthyandaware.com 

May God bless your journey and your healing, Edwin
