In this educational workshop you will learn to understand your needs in your love relationship and how to respond to those of your partner.  You will learn why sometimes you completely miss each other and how to maintain emotional balance in the moments that hurt.  Then we show you how to come close and share the most tender parts of yourself in a way that helps your partner respond to you in a way that feels oh so good.

Because that is what creates a lasting bond that can keep your love alive…forever!
