Entering into relationship with others is one of the bravest things we humans can do. Most of us are naturally drawn toward intimate connections. Some of us fear it. Whether they are romantic or friendship, family or work related, relationships are where we learn about ourselves, exploring love, fear, need, want and desire. They offer empathy, self-awareness and healing. The results?

  • Improve and deepen interpersonal intimacy

  • Communicate better with your partner

  • Understand your attachment style and how it affects your attractions and relationships

  • Learn how shared vulnerability builds trust

  • Feel alive in your relationships
