The Energetics of Intimacy and Attachment

Exploring the subtleties of the body in relationship.

Ariel Giarretto (USA)



This workshop examines: “What happens in myself, my body, and my being in relation to others?”

It examines the layers of physiological and emotional experience that occur while being in proximity with others. You do not need to be in a couple relationship to get great benefit from this program. Nor does your partner need to be present. The weekend will be both experiential and educational, and professionals will walk away with valuable new ways of working with couples and individuals who struggle with intimacy.

You will discover the subtle and not-so-obvious ways that you engage intimately, and how to open to new and yet-to-be explored possibilities of joy, closeness and pleasure. The goal is to identify authentic availability vs reactive boundaries, leading to greater freedom to explore your sexy self playfully in new and different ways, without shame.
