The Healing Of Intimacy (Victoria, BC)
June 18, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$15 – $30
In a world of increasing cyber-connectivity, and a culture of ‘busy-ness”, many feel a loss of connection and intimacy in their lives.
Sharing a transforming and inspiring experience together can create a sense of intimacy with others; when we watch an inspiring movie, travel to an exciting new place, or embark on a weekend of personal exploration, intimacy between people can be experienced. In those moments of shared experiences that bring us closer together, we form a kind of trust, and shared context for understanding one another.
What can we do to nurture a lasting feeling of intimacy and connection- not just between partners, but also between friends, community, and tribe- in a way that is consensual and offers space for individual expression?
In this mini workshop, we’ll be examining the roadblocks to experiencing intimacy, and exploring some practical tools for developing intimacy- playing interaction games that will combine theatrics, physical touch, and communication. Melina will guide us through fun and playful ways to grow deeper, lasting intimacy.*
“True Intimacy asks for more than eye-gazing; it calls upon a kindness with one another’s shadows and gentleness with all our imperfections. ”
*This is not a sexual workshop, and participation in activities is optional.
