About the Intro to Intimacy Workshop
An Introduction to Intimacy is a 2-hour opportunity to expand your experience and understanding of intimacy. Most of us experience intimacy with our romantic partners, our family members, or long-time friends. We may think of intimacy as a sexual act, or perhaps a sensual one. In this workshop, we will explore how connection is as simple as being fully present with someone. We will learn new tools for creating closeness while simultaneously bringing choice and boundaries to the forefront of everything we do.
The Human Awareness Institute (HAI) is a cutting edge, 50-year-old, non-profit organization. An Introduction to Intimacy is a taste of the profound work that we offer people from around the world in our week-long workshops. In this safe, supportive, and friendly environment, you’ll discover many ingredients for happy, healthy, and loving relationships.
You walk into a room. There are people waiting to greet you, offer you a hug, and welcome you in. A Presenter from the Human Awareness Institute is there to bring the group together and lead you through a series of gentle exercises designed to open your heart and bring you into connection with others.
This is what an Introduction to Intimacy is about. It’s about being seen and heard, exactly as you are. It’s about slowing down to create a meaningful connection with someone, that perhaps goes a little deeper than your run-of-the-mill chat.
An Introduction to Intimacy is about choice. You will have many opportunities to notice and voice your preferences as a way of building confidence and trust with yourself and those around you (perhaps new friends?).
In a safe, supportive, and casual environment, you’ll discover many ingredients for happy, healthy, and loving relationships.
Our deeply personal and experiential workshops focus on:
– Building love, intimacy and respect
– Improving communication and living authentically
– Deepening our experience of love and creating emotional intimacy
– Improving body image to deepen your relationship with yourself and others
– Making the right relationship choices for you
As a thank you for participating in the Intro Workshop, you'll be offered a discount to attend our first weekend workshop, Connecting in Love (Level 1). As with any true invitation, you can accept or decline with no pressure. We honor your choices.
We look forward to spending an evening with you!
