In Irene’s many years of providing couples and sex therapy she has witnessed how hard it is for couples to talk honestly and openly about their physical and/or sexual bond. Some people aren’t able to talk about it at all. Other people are filled with anxiety, shame, embarrassment, and they fear hurting their partner when the topic of touch comes up, so their conversations are unsatisfying and conflicted. Irene designed this workshop to give couples the space, the time, the safety and the guidance to embark on these conversations.
There’s more to touch and physical intimacy than conversation. It’s also hard for couples to actually begin to touch and engage in physical intimacy again when touch and physical intimacy has been difficult or non-existent for a time. This retreat offers couples safe, secure, and playful ways to experiment with conversation and touch so that they can deepen, re-vive or restore physical intimacy.
