.... a Valentine's weekend event ....
To be intimate we must learn to be fully present. Through partner meditations, verbal and nonverbal communication exercises and group sharing, couples will practice the art of intimacy and learn skills to deepen the shared journey.
Please note: This event is not appropriate for attending alone as the majority of the day will be spent in partner practice.
Debra Chamberlin-Taylor and George Taylor have been together for 25 years. They are marriage and family counselors, and long-time meditators. They co-facilitate the Courage to Love relationship groups and retreats.
