From Longing to Loving: A Bioenergetics Path Towards Intimacy

With Laurie Ure, LICSW | Online via ZOOM
New dates to be announced.

Do you seek more intimacy in your life – either through a loving relationship or more connection with family and/or friends?

Have you experienced isolation during the pandemic which has left you feeling lonely?

Do you want help improving your relationship with yourself?

This workshop is for people seeking all types of intimacy, to clarify what you seek and to work through blocks of having what you desire. We will build a community of support to explore your desires, your beliefs, and your messages about intimacy. We will focus on your boundaries, both setting limits and reaching out, along with the actions you may need to take to have more of what you want. Join us for a body/mind experiential exploration to help you on your path!

I thank you so so much Laurie for all your help, support and encouragement. I never would have believed that this kind of therapy would be so helpful to me, especially when I had never known about this self-healing, energy of your body. As we both know my body tells me everything.
