Learn effective communication skills, “dissolve” relational frustrations, and rekindle passionate connection at Hedy and Yumi Schleifer’s couples retreat, called the Adventure In Intimacy.

At the couples workshop, you will learn how three invisible connectors bring you together as a couple every single time. The Relational Space is the first of three invisible connectors you will learn. Watch this short video about how Hedy introduces the Relational Space to a couple.

At the Adventure in Intimacy you will discover and learn:

  • to view conflict as a friend since it is a potential launching pad for growth
  • that daily annoying frustrations can become powerful vehicles for productive change
  • how learning more about your partner's history strengthens your relationship and transforms the two of you into a team
  • to reclaim your ability to have authentic conversations that can move you from automatic unconscious re-activity to intentional, conscious action
  • how your transformed connection will reignite your ability to have fun, romance, intimacy, and passion, and reawaken your sensuality (you will start holding hands and caressing each other again) and regain your ability to "make love" and not just "have sex"
  • that a conscious relationship will allow you to reclaim your empathy - your ability to "step into your partner's shoes"
  • that creating a conscious relationship, can affect all your connections including family, co-workers, and especially your children.

“A great exploration of self and of relationship with a magnificent sense of professionalism.”

Whether you are married, engaged, beginning a new relationship, or in a committed partnership (gay or straight), you will learn how to become each other’s best friend, and how to create a relationship that is safe, passionate, and long lasting.

This workshop teaches you skills not only for transforming your marriage/partnership, but also for creating stronger connections with your kids, extended family and colleagues. The more couples learn to apply these skills to all of their relationships, the more and easier it will be for our communities to become more vibrant, and more pulsating with life.

The Adventure in Intimacy will teach you seven basic principles and seven essential rituals. Watch this video on "Dissolving Frustrations" which give you a sense of one of the skills you will learn at the workshop.

During this fast paced, three-day marriage seminar, you will receive expert relationship advice and guidance for a healthy relationship. Couples on the edge will be empowered to take their relationship to a higher level, to step on the breaks and stop divorce, to turn a page, to start anew, and to create a dream marriage. Join Hedy and Yumi and spice up your relationship with joy, fun and renewed passion.

Whatever stage your relationship is in, the Adventure In Intimacy workshop will:

  • Help you and your partner re-establish real communication
  • Transform your frustrations into vehicles for change
  • Increase the zest and passion in your relationship
  • Inspire you to experience the Miracle of Connection™.

“Hedy and Yumi are an awesome example of a connected couple.”

This workshop is designed to create a safe and comfortable environment for all participants. You will work alone or with your partner and will not be required to share anything with the rest of the group. Confidentiality is respected and preserved throughout the workshop.

The workshop is based on the relational philosophy of Martin Buber, the positive change approaches of Appreciative Inquiry and Re-evaluation Counseling, the latest research about Relational Neuro-Biology, and adaptations of processes from Imago Relationship Therapy. Other significant influences in the development of the Adventure in Intimacy workshop are Hedy and Yumi's marriage and Judaic background. Their marriage continues serving as the laboratory for the ongoing evolution of skills for the development of Relational Intelligence and Relational Maturity of couples.

Give yourself the treat of tasting the sweetness of reconnecting with your partner, in a way that you dreamt about and wished for, but did not think possible.
