Our fear of intimacy retreat will give you practical tools to identify and work on the deep, suppressed feelings that are at the root of struggles with and fear of intimacy – feelings of pain, anger, and sadness.
Are you afraid of other people’s anger or judgments?
In difficult situations, are you confused and don’t know what to do or say?
Do you procrastinate, postpone and distract yourself?
Are you running from other people?
This retreat will give you practical tools to identify and work on the deep, suppressed feelings that are at the root of struggles with intimacy – feelings of pain, anger, and sadness.
These feelings hold in place old stories we tell ourselves such as
Intimacy is about allowing and working with those difficult feelings – not ignoring or disowning them, i.e., Learning To Stay
When something difficult comes up
At this retreat you will identify and work through those behaviors that keep you from genuine connections with yourself and others. You’ll look at what you are avoiding and develop healthy strategies to comfort yourself when parts of you want to avoid and run away.
These mindful strategies include engaging your “thinker, feeler and intuition”…head, heart and hara. You will learn how to increase your capacity to work with difficult feelings and stay connected with yourself and others…all in the service of true intimacy.
