Hit Me Up: Academy

Tools for Deepening Your Intimacy Kink

Calling all intimacy kinksters! In this 3 hour session, you’ll get a didactic overview of what somatic intelligence, non violent communication, mindfulness and positive psychology, can teach us about creating and deepening in intimate connection - with ourselves + others.

Then you’ll spend time working in pairs to put these tools into practice: responding to prompts, sharing positive reflections, engaging in active listening to start, then graduating into eye gazing, sync’d breathing and hugging.

There will be time for you to reflect on the thoughts, feelings and sensations that emerge; you’ll leave with concrete ways to take what’s been learned out of the classroom, and into your relationships. Come with a partner, or come solo - if the latter, we’ll make sure you’re easefully paired!
