The Flowering of Love:
A Conscious Loving Workshop

with Alison Bond & David Coleman

August 3–5, 2021

Spend 3 Days Exploring the Foundations of Intimate Relationships

Relationships are the foundation of human existence. From the moment you are born and throughout life, you continually develop intimate connections.

You may yearn for relationships rooted in authenticity, trust, and love but find yourself repeating patterns based in fear and disconnection.

This workshop with Alison and David is your invitation to open to a Heart-based approach to intimate relationships that emphasizes presence and love as their very foundation.

When you start consciously relating to another person in an intimate and vulnerable way, a deeper dimension of your being can begin to awaken and be revealed. As though in a mirror, you start to recognize a reflection of your existence.

In this process, you may begin to wonder:

  • What is a conscious relationship?
  • What is Love?
  • How do I relate to myself?
  • Who am I?
  • Why is it that the closer I get to someone, the more challenging our relationship is?
  • How can I shift from patterns that keep me closed towards openness, love, and intimacy?
  • How can I awaken the most authentic dimension of my being in my relationships?

To be able to connect with others, you need to connect with yourself in the intimacy of your being and in that of the being in front of you. You’ll discover that relationships can be a gateway to the Truth and Love that lie at the very core of your being.

You’ll recognize that the person closest to you is often the perfect teacher—sharing the same existence, the same love, the same essence. To understand that essence, you need to know and embrace your beloved intimately. But, total transparency and connection are impossible until you know yourself and recognize who you truly are.

This workshop contains no nudity or overt sexuality and is open to singles and couples. No previous experience in yoga or meditation is required.
