The Intimacy and Attraction Workshop® is a set of techniques and exercises for inviting presence, connecting through the heart, and exploring the play of masculine and feminine for strong sexual attraction.
This potent set of tools will enable you to accurately, cleanly, and powerfully explore the realms of sexual polarity and heartful connection in your own life and with others. The material serves as a means to radically deepen your personal understanding of your own journey, as well as furnish you with the tools to guide others. This evening practice has limited space and welcomes both men and women, singles and couples. We attempt to ensure equal numbers of men and women in the workshops for cohesive practice forms. You will be relating with many individuals of the opposite gender for the sake of practice.
The first step in any human interaction is the ability to focus one’s 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 an even more basic level, intimacy with the present moment allows for real comprehension and connection. Attention can be cultivated and the body can be sensitized to feel and connect intimately with oneself and another. You will be taught both the underlying principles of connection and a set of exercises that foster intimacy.
There is no nudity, nor explicit sexual touching in the workshops. We are dedicated to the highest degree of safety, clarity, and integrity for all workshop participants.
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 also bring up feelings of pain and memories of loss we have experienced. 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 in a set of exercises that facilitate relaxation and opening internally, as well as 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. You will be taught the principles of attraction and a range of new exercises to engender exploration and education in the participants.
“Deeper awareness, transformed, and fully alive is how I feel after taking the intimacy and attraction workshop with Bella LaVey. She is a thoughtful, caring guide and her down to earth and welcoming spirit really set the tone throughout the whole workshop.
I’m no stranger to taking and even leading some workshops: I have done a lot of work on personal growth and energy healing, and this workshop has had the most profound impact on me in such a short amount of time…I feel I’d be remiss if I didn’t share a testimonial, as this is such deep and important work that we don’t often get a chance to explore in our day to day interactions. Think of it as intimacy and relating to others on steroids while exploring deeper facets of yourself and your sexuality in a safe and nurturing container.”
