Women's Intimacy, Desire and Eroticism: The Triumvirate of Sexual Pleasure

Jun 5 - 7, 2020

Do you know the difference between intimacy, desire and eroticism? Do you feel confident that you know who you are sexually? Do you struggle to keep sexual desire alive? This in-depth workshop, open to women of all sexual orientations, will assist in revealing the answers to these questions, which reside in past sexual experiences and sexual fantasies. When we deconstruct family of origin and cultural messages about what “good girls” do and don’t do sexually, we can honestly admit our most ardent sexual desires to ourselves. Taking ownership of our adult sexuality frees us to make better relationship choices, communicate what we want and need to a lover, and be more capable of creating and keeping an exciting sexual relationship. We will examine your peak sexual escapades and sexual fantasies in order to pluck out your hedonic goals. Mindful body awareness, group interaction and juicy conversations will allow your unique erotic map to emerge, thus increasing your erotic intelligence. Alexandra Katehakis takes a psycho/spiritual/sexual approach to sexuality. Please bring a journal.

Hold Me Tight Workshop for Couples

Jun 19 - 21, 2020

The Hold Me Tight® Workshop for Couples is based on practices drawn from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), attachment theory and Sue Johnson’s best-selling book, Hold Me Tight. The work will be designed around seven conversations that have been shown to be essential to successful relationships. Relationships can be a cause of stress and pain or a source of comfort and joy. Couples will learn how to understand and improve their relationships via presentations, private exercises, conversations with relationship partners and by watching video demonstrations. By utilizing exercises drawn from EFT and Attachment Theory, Sam and Michelle help couples learn how to deal with their feelings together, reach toward each other, be responsive in more loving and positive ways, and move from isolation and frustration to security, emotional safety and lasting relationship satisfaction. The Hold Me Tight® Workshop welcomes ALL Couples.
