What we're about

Essential Intimacy is a community designed to invite people into exploring their relationship to vulnerability, embodiment, desire, sexuality, attraction, authenticity, intimacy and pleasure...to name a few.

Many of our meetup events revolve around communication games, exercises, discussions and lectures that invite us to remove the masks we wear on a daily basis and let ourselves be witnessed for who we truly are.

The Art of Jealousy: A Workshop for Women Reclaiming Connection

(Note: Pre-registration is required for attendance) This is a workshop for women who are ready to face the ultimate white elephant in the room--Jealousy. This is a workshop for women who see how their avoidance of jealousy inhibits their ability to be fully present, confident, and authentic in their relationships. This is a workshop for women who are ready to explore their own experience of jealousy, so they can transform it into more connection, pleasure, and turn-on in their relationships then they ever thought possible. Is this you? Thank you for being here. Please keep reading. We exist in a culture that has conditioned women to see each other as the enemy. So much emphasis has been placed on winning the approval of men, that we will often see our sisters as competition, outwardly or passive-aggresively throwing each other under the bus in order to achieve our desired goal--being “chosen”. What if there was a way that our sisters could become allies in helping us to receive *everything* we could possibly want in our lives--from sex, to intimacy, to prosperity? What if there actually is more than enough men, pleasure and fulfillment to go around? And what if being honest about our jealousy, rather than avoidant or deceptive about it, actually holds the key to EVERYTHING we desire? That’s what this workshop is all about. Through a combination of partnered exercises, dynamic group sharing, and experiential learning, you’ll learn practices for transforming toxic forms of jealousy into empowered connection that helps us cultivate more of what we TRULY want in our lives and relationships. WHAT WE'LL EXPLORE: What is jealousy? And why are so many of us terrified of feeling it, let alone acknowledging that it exists? How can we utilize the powerful energy of jealousy to create deeper trust, safety, and connection than we ever thought possible in our relationships? Many of us spend our lives in fear of protection against other women. Worrying that if we are “too attractive”, “too confident”, “too powerful”, we might be overtly attacked or passively aggressed by women in ways that were deeply painful to our heart. This workshop is designed to blast that false belief open into the deeper truth that there is enough for all of us, and we are deeply lovable, exactly as we are.
