Adapting together

Saturday, May 2, 2020

10:30am-12:30pm PST

A live, interactive online workshop on overcoming your and your loved ones’ instinctual stress responses and deepening intimacy with proven exercises and tools.

Transform stress into intimacy.

​You know that feeling when someone you're close to gets defensive, and you take it personally, and everyone ends up frustrated? Yeah. It sucks.


But what if our "defense mechanisms" could help us understand ourselves and our loved ones better? What if we started to see them as tools for emotional vulnerability and connection? 

In this time of unprecedented global disruption, the key to better relationships is developing empathetic responses that speak directly to the specific needs and fears of the people we love. 

Join me for an experiential virtual workshop that focuses on REAL PRACTICES for overcoming your and your loved ones' instinctual stress responses. End escalating fights for good, feel closer when times are hard, and experience more connected eroticism with partners using the Adaptive Archetypes methodology.

More Details

  • What is this methodology?  The Adaptive Archetypes methodology is based on the work of psychologists like Freud, Reich and Ron Kurtz of the Hakomi Institute, who observed that people develop certain coping strategies for dealing with stress early in life that affect their relationships into adulthood. Celeste & Danielle of the Somatica Institute further linked these character strategies to sexuality and intimacy.
