Erotic Partnership Retreat in California
Are you looking for a weekend workshop that will help you improve your relationship overall and lead to a better sex life? Do you want to remember the depth of your love and then take it further?
This retreat starts with emotional connection, offers a structure for how to connect sexually, and will give you tools for staying connected. A weekend of heart-centered sexuality training.
No one weekend makes a relationship. Yet there are seminal times in a relationship that shift the direction or catalyze an important quality. This three-day, two-night retreat will provide understanding, concrete practices, and an opportunity to remember how easy love can be. Our focus will be creating emotionally connected sexuality — being friends, partners and lovers. This is what we call erotic partnership.
We will approach both sexuality and personal transformation scientifically as well as emphasizing romance.
During this retreat you will:
• take time to clarify intention.
• practice giving and receiving affection.
• move gently from sensuality to sexuality.
• practice effective communication while bridging
emotional connection with erotic exploration.
Practical tools are provided that form the basis for relational transformation.
We use discussion and experiential exercises to explore:
• the importance of erotic connection in committed relationship
• identifying and expressing what you want
• self-empowerment through self-responsibility
• creating the space for love
• approaching sensitive topics in effective ways
As in all of our retreats, couples are guided in increasingly intimate private conversations, then offered private "homework" assignments that deepen into the erotic. We help couples plan a special date for the Saturday night of the weekend. This date will offer an opportunity to practice moving through the stuck places in your sexual relationship and to create a template for ongoing transformation.
Couples will leave the weekend with a concrete and unique plan to deepen their emotional and erotic connection over time.
This weekend retreat is limited to twelve couples and will fill quickly, so sign up soon.
CEUs are available for Marriage and Family therapists and Licensed Social Workers.
