Love, Sex and Intimacy

with Linda & Charlie Bloom

 

In this experiential workshop we will explore intimacy, love, and sensual pleasure identifying ways in which we can successfully fulfill our desire for these experiences. We will also identify some of the common obstacles that impede our ability to open our hearts more fully and neutralize any blocks to intimacy that we may have.

Some of the themes in the workshop are:

How we can maintain an open heart in the face of powerful emotions.

How we can redirect and intensify the energy contained within these feelings towards states of heightened awareness? 

How we can open to include and honor the full range of feelings that we may experience during these times?

How we can manage feelings of anxiety, fear, and other emotions that often arise when we find ourselves in vulnerable states.

This workshop will confront these and other questions that directly relate to our ability to dive fully into the bottomless pool of our heart’s truth. We will also explore the inner landscape that exists beyond intimacy, that territory of the heart where the deep connection of ‘two’ becomes the transcendent ‘one’.

AN END TO ARGUING: 101 Valuable Lessons for All Relationships

An End to Arguing 101 Valuable Lessons for All Relationships was awarded with the

Literary Titan Award for 2023.

. . . an amazingly comprehensive presentation of relational challenges in which the commitment to non-hostility is the prelude to fruitful negotiations. Perhaps the universal first instruction to couples in distress could be: ‘Stop! Calm down! Get a grip! Now talk.'” -Sylvia Boorstein, PhD, co-founder of the Spirit Rock Meditation Center, author of Happiness is an Inside Job: Practicing for a Joyful Life

A MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDERS,

LINDA & CHARLIE BLOOM

PSYCHOTHERAPISTS, BEST-SELLING AUTHORS, AND MARRIED COUPLE WITH 50+ YEARS OF ADVICE!

 

Successful relationships and strong bonds with those we love are the cornerstone of a thriving life. While most of us understand this, embodying the qualities, learning the skills  and engaging in techniques and practices that promote strong and respectful relationships and connections with life partners, co-workers, friends, and others is a formidable challenge for most of us, and often leads to conflict and disagreement.

Yet the ability to create fulfilling relationships is a skill that can, given adequate knowledge, support, and practice, be developed and fully integrated into our lives. Even those of us who have had painful or difficult experiences in past family or romantic relationships – whether it be constant argument, miscommunication, or differences in perspective – can, under the right conditions learn to master the art of any relationship and strengthen any bond.

At Bloomwork, we are dedicated to assisting individuals, couples and organizations to enhance their relationship-building skills by offering advice and techniques that facilitate this process. We customize our offerings to the specific needs of our clients. The skills that we offer support in developing include:

  • The art of “conscious combat” -managing relationship differences effectively.

  • Getting “unstuck” from entrenched interactional patterns.

  • Creating networks of ongoing support.

  • Developing “enlightened self-interest”.

  • Fulfilling the need to simultaneously provide care and support to my partner and myself as well.

  • Becoming a life-long learner.

  • Managing moods effectively.

  • Living in gratitude.

  • Moving from breakdowns to breakthroughs.

  • Transforming a good relationship to a great one.
