Led by Ellen Waenik

During this morning exploration of Intimacy and Attraction® we will practice with 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.

You will learn innovative ways to:

>> Invite Deep Connection
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.

>> 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 relating with individuals of the opposite gender for the sake of practice. Therefor we will attempt to ensure equal numbers of men and women in the workshop for cohesive practice forms.
