Being Intimate: A Retreat for Couples with Kate & Joel Feldman
Kate and Joel Feldman
October 20–23, 2011
When part of a couple, we want communication with our partner to be loving and non-wounding. We long for our sex lives to be exciting. We want to know that our partner supports and appreciates us, while also respecting our individuality. This retreat is about the art and nuances of “relational intimacy.” We will explore how non-demand touch is the bedrock for a robust sexual relationship; experience the art of listening and self-disclosure as building blocks for deep connection; examine non-wounding ways to repair conflict; and probe how self-love and self-acceptance can enhance our individuality and jazz up our partnership. Couples of any age, length of commitment or sexual orientation are welcome.
Kate Feldman, MSW, LCSW and Joel Feldman, CPCC, have been co-couple’s therapists since 1985. Founding members of Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, they have trained in Imago Relationship, Gestalt and Internal Family Systems therapies. Kate and Joel have had personal meditation practices since the early 1970s. They consider their relationship a “spiritual work in progress.”
