Workshop Details

Join us in San Diego for a two and half day introductory dive into the art of R/evolutionary R/elating and Radical Intimacy. Learn how to get over the past, cultivate honesty, authenticity and connection in the moment, reclaim your ability to ask for what you want, and build a life of compelling purpose. 


Let’s face it, we all yearn to give and receive love. We want richer relationships, deeper friendships, more closeness and community in our lives. We may even notice, in some quiet moments… that we’re dogged by a nagging sense of separateness.

And yet, when we look closely, we find that we, ourselves, are sabotaging the connection we want — with our own defensive conditioning, our old patterns of fear, dependency, and blame. We find that we are hiding from each other, fighting with each other.

How are we to drop this rusty armor so that we may, at last, see each other clearly… hold each other closely?  I want to share with you a way I’ve learned to do just that.

We want to help you, as we have many others all over the world, to:
