Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll get from this event

  • Navigate challenging feelings like jealousy, shame, & self-consciousness – in a connective, relationship-supporting way
  • How to manage when you and your partner are in a stale sex-rut
  • Practice the powerful art of saying “No” to someone you adore (and don’t want to hurt)
  • More easily hear the needs underneath difficult feedback from a partner
  • Speak “giraffe” in the bedroom, so you can be communicative and HOT at the same time
  • Apply the “neuroscience of sex” to make it easier to access the experience of safety, ease, and pleasure, at the body level
  • And more (see registration page)


Come prepared to learn and gently stretch your communication muscles in an environment that is safe, comfortable, supportive… and rich with opportunities to hone your NVC skills.

Mary is an executive coach, consultant and educator who brings together her training in NVC, Marriage & Family therapy, and mind-body healing to support new levels of connection – within individuals and between loved ones. She has focused on intimacy and sexuality in her private practice for twelve years and is excited to bring a wealth of tools to support participants in exploring healthy, vital sexual connection.
