Intimacy & Attraction Workshop
with Julia Paulette Hollenbery
April 29, May 27 and June 17
The Intimacy and Attraction Workshop® is an embodied enquiry into relationship – a set of exercises for inviting presence, connecting through the heart, and exploring the play of masculine and feminine for strong sexual attraction.
Invite Deep Connection
The first step in human interaction is the ability to focus attention and become intimate with the current set of circumstances. This includes feeling and awareness of oneself, which then, in turn, allows us to feel another. On a basic level, intimacy with the present moment, allows for real connection. Attention can be cultivated and the body sensitized to feel and connect intimately with oneself and another.
Experience Relaxed Heart Opening
As we experience relationship, both in our upbringing and romantically, we develop closures and safeguards against disappointment and heartache. Feeling deep love can bring up pain and loss. Learning how to feel oneself, and connect to another’s heart, combined with the ability to make oneself vulnerable and open to intimate interaction is practiced. The exercises facilitate relaxation and opening, internally and with another human. You will engage in an inquiry into deep heart communion.
Create Strong Erotic Tension
Erotic tension follows the law of “opposite attracts”. When two people (regardless of gender) engage in the play of sexual tension the strongest attraction is produced through the opposition of forces. Masculine/Feminine, Flow/Go, Shiva/Shakti, Penetration/Surrender are all terms describing those opposites. Learn how to artfully play with these opposites, without getting caught in gender stereotypes or assuming rigid roles.
We attempt to ensure equal numbers of men and women in the workshops for cohesive practice forms. Pre-booking essential. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions.
Wear comfortable clothing you can easily move in. Layers for temperature comfort are recommended.
