Living Intimacy –Awakening through intimate relationships

  • Do you long to deepen in your intimate relationship?
  • Would you like to explore relationship as a catalyst to awaken to the light that you are?
  • Do you feel there is more to learn and evolve into regarding your sexuality, both your own and as lovers?
  • Do you sometimes find it difficult to express your deepest feelings to your beloved?
  • Do you want to release old repetitive patterns that inhibit you to receive the full potential of joy in your relationship?
  • Are you ready to walk the path of the Beloved?

If there is a yes to one or more of these questions, Living Intimacy might be the next step for you and your partner to take on your journey as lovers.

Living Intimacy has been offered as couple retreats since 2007. Over the years it has been polished and refined, so that it can bring you the most uplifting experience for you and your relationship. The popularity of these retreats has highly increased over the last two years and now we are offering a Living Intimacy Journey over 4 retreats, inviting an in depth exploration of the many facets of love relationships. You can follow these 4 retreats as a training, or book the retreats individually. More under practical information below.

Living Intimacy: Expand your capacity to love

  • Create a more nourishing and loving relationship
  • Open to vulnerability and authenticity
  • Healing each other
  • Learn how to sustain the love current between you
  • Move into deeper intimacy and sexuality

When we start to relate to others from trust, honesty and authenticity, we open the doors for more love, more innocence, more creativity and a better sexual flow.

Many of us often face challenges regarding love and intimacy, especially when moving deeper into a relationship. Old inherited imprints buried in our cellular memory, often bring out distrust in ourselves, towards the other and towards life in general. When not acknowledged, these imprints prevent us from creating healthy and nourishing love relationships. In Living Intimacy we don’t try to get rid of what seems to be in the way of love; instead we change the way we relate to what is arising, bringing more awareness and self-love to the experiences we have. In a foundation of trust, we allow healing and vulnerability to be there, learning to open and expand into a higher state of consciousness.

Marya, creator of Living Intimacy and her beloved Elie, spirited musician, will guide the retreats.
