Intimate relationships can be a source of great fulfillment and joy ... or of frustration, stress, loneliness and unfulfilled longing. In this work(play)shop, we'll practice a more sensual way of experiencing ourselves and each other that more successfully fulfills our need for connection. Couples will practice hugging, holding hands, and communicating in new ways. (This will be an non-sexual experience in which all participants are fully clothed throughout.) We'll practice enlivening our senses and remaining sensually aware from moment to moment. Experiencing a lover from this perspective can change the whole experience of romantic love and partnership.
When a lover connects with their beloved in a fulfilling, romantic or erotic way, it raises the blood level of oxytocin, sometimes called "the cuddle hormone," a key biological factor in happy pair bonding. In this work(play)shop and in the assignments between sessions, we'll practice ways of perceiving, breathing, touching, caressing and being present with each other that are known to consistently raise oxytocin and, with it, a pleasurable sense of well-being and connection.
