The Summer of Love

Remember the summer of love? People declared themselves independent of Eisenhower era summer of loverestrictions and instead explored self-expression, self-acceptance and freedom. Just as it was possible for the culture to shift from constraint to greater levels of intimacy and self-expression in the 60's, it is possible for you to make a similar personal shift now.   


To support you in making this shift, we have created two 4-week series this summer specifically dedicated to knowing and expressing yourself.  Intimacy from Within focuses on increasing self-compassion and Intimacy with Others centers on self-expression. Join us for one or both series! Read more below. (Early Bird Rate Applies!)
