Upcoming Workshop

Couples Connection Lab

Workshop Description

Just like maintaining good health, raising children, keeping your home and car in good running condition, your relationship needs the same type of long-term care and nurturing to thrive and grow. It’s so easy for us to make assumptions that our partners will always just be there, or compromise and ignore away the things we need and even treat each other poorly because we don’t even know where to begin when it comes to our disappointments and anger with each other.

The good news is that it’s never too late to try something different and have the closeness and intimacy that feels out of reach. At this Couples Connection Lab you’ll learn how to break free from familiar patterns and behaviors that are damaging and disconnecting as well as understand and bridge the gaps in your communication, connection, and intimacy.

You will learn practical skills and tools that will not only fit your personality type but can also be applied to your relationship immediately.

With your new takeaways from the Couples Connection Lab you will be able to have and create the connection that brings you closer than ever!

Don’t Miss Out! Spaces Are Limited!

This workshop is for men who desire more. Men who want to become better lovers, dare I say “master lovers”. And men who are ready to explore their erotic potential through the mind, the body and the heart. This workshop is conducted in a setting that is playful, safe and honoring. It is both educational and experiential. You can expect to gain a greater acceptance of yourself as an erotic being and to discover ways to develop a more satisfying erotic relationship with others.

Overall the class was super great. I was replaying the “lessons” in my mind and, though I hadn’t recognized it at the time, the path you led us down was really one of total seduction: from communication and vulnerability, to touch, embrace, ravishment, and then pleasure.

In This Workshop, We Will:

In the morning, we work on harnessing your erotic self and your own energy. Connecting with a partner while staying in your own desire, and helping her call up and stay in hers. In the afternoon, we build on what you learned in the morning, adding erotic skills and becoming cliterate about the female orgasm. All with the goal of increasing pleasure, for both you and your partner! Note that all exercises are done clothed and that this is a professional workshop where content is taught and skills are practiced to make your sex life what you’ve dreamed it can be. Instructors will demonstrate exercises and work one-on-one with all men, respecting all stated boundaries.

SAMPLE AGENDA

  • Introductions and Confidentiality Agreements – this is a safe space, you can ask anything you’d like, acceptance and compassion will be shown by all.

  • Discussion about a woman’s psychology around sex, information on female desire, understanding male and female stereotypes. What’s real and what isn’t.

  • Exercises like Standing Tree to help tap into your own desire, and presence exercises to learn how to better connect with a partner.

  • Understanding boundaries and how they shift. Discussion and games.

  • Touching for your own pleasure. Learn the 6 modalities of touch and how to use “outer-course” to build arousal. This is especially helpful to get out of the penetration only mindset.

  • Guided touch with feedback. Learn how to become your best erotic self by staying connected to your own desire while giving pleasure and feedback to a partner.

  • Walk towards exercise teaches you how to walk with towards a partner with your sexual energy.

  • Pin down and pin up exercises build on the walk towards, helping you land that energy appropriately so your partner will feel desired.

  • Discussion about narrating intimacy and dealing with rejection.

  • Review male anatomy slides and discuss how you feel about your cock.

  • Review female anatomy – slides, puppet and live models. Learn how to adore a pussy, what women love, how to find the clitoris (the main female sex organ), and about different types of orgasm.Experience hands-on practice with loving, honest and supportive female sex and intimacy teachers. Please join us to enhance your erotic skills in a community of men full of acceptance – and be inspired to be your best erotic self!

You can also hear us walk you through what we teach in this workshop, in an interview with T of T & A Talk Sex. Click on the below audio file to hear this riveting interview with Amy & Jackie. As we all know, practice makes perfect!

Your openness was fantastic. You helped me cross some barriers. I’ve not had a super adventurous sex life so just getting over the unease of being with different people in intimate embraces, touch, etc. was something to overcome psychologically. But we can only get over that by working, right? So that was good. It felt safe.

About Jackie

Jackie is a Sex and Relationship Coach trained in the Somatica™ Method, an interactive, experiential, body-based practice that heightens and deepens communication, connection, compassion and intimacy.

Like so many of us, she spent most of her life in fear of losing connections and relationships for being “too much” or “not enough” of herself. As she’s moved through her own growth and training she’s learned that we are all allowed to be imperfect, emotional, and sexual. With the tools of her trade, she’s learned how to ask for what she needs and desires to have her most passionate and fulfilling connections.

We all have the same deep need to connect; the need for true intimacy, love, and attachment. We all want to be seen, heard, and desired. We want a safe space where we can be vulnerable, be too much and not enough, make mistakes, and be imperfect but still be loved and accepted. Jackie is here to help you discover your deepest satisfaction and connected awareness, with empathy and insight.
