Experiential Workshop Foundation Level

Getting close to someone demands that we also get close to ourselves. That’s the nature of true intimacy. When our heart opens to another, it also opens to ourself.

*Touch excavates everything alive within us- including our unresolved shadow- in an effort to bring all that we are into the light of connection. It wants the whole of us to be present for the experience. It wants the whole of us to heal. Then our experience of intimacy is something more than a reach for the other. It’s also a reach for ourselves. Not merely a fleeting adventure between two souls, but a truly transformative journey towards wholeness

our personal growth doesn't come from just sitting alone in a room, but through our interactions with others, and with each person gaining insight into ourselves and enhancing our -relational Intelligence -emotional Intelligence -Body awareness

Non-goal oriented sessions: allows each person to have ones own experience, cultivating trust, the freedom to allow oneself to be as they need to be in that moment ridding ourselves of shame, fear, guilt

Non-goal oriented, doesn't mean there isn't a purpose, it simply means allowing the freedom for whatever needs to come through.
