The next Dancing Into Intimacy Workshop will be in summer, 2016.
The title sums up the essence of what we are doing. Increasing intimacy is a basic desire for most couples. However intimacy requires connection. With sex addiction, but also what I am finding with couples in general, is that both people are not sure of what their role is in the relationship.
Communication has become ridden with misunderstanding, unresolved hurt feelings and protective mechanisms that inhibit warmth, connection, enjoyment and passion. In this workshop we will be working with how it feels to come together with one person taking "the lead" and the other taking "the follow".
We play with switching off these energies through the workshop. When doing this work with individual couples comments such as "I feel so confident." and "I feel beautiful." also "We haven't connected like this in years!" are expressed.
I partner with a dance instructor, who is an expert in bringing out the best in people through partner dancing. She is patient, competent and an amazing dancer. I, as the psychotherapist, watch for all the subtleties that happen the moment the couple comes onto the dance floor. Does her body say she is scared? Does his body say he isn't fully in the relationship? Do both stop breathing when they come into contact signaling anxiety, apprehension, a lack of trust? Once revealed, we can work with all of it to invite some vulnerability, perhaps a lot of courage, clarity, and a whole lot of fun!
Workshop is 149 per person. Individuals and couples both welcome. Go to the payment page to pre-register! See you soon.
