New York Open Center
22 E 30th St

This event is hosted by New York Open Center.


Intimacy is a skill that can be cultivated, practiced, and deepened. “It” can be learned, generated and increased as a capacity. Brought alive through sexuality, intimacy can be an eternal dance of bliss, ecstasy, awakening, and love. This mixed gender evening practice will focus on the cultivation of intimacy and erotic friction. This experiential event engages you in practices that you can apply right away to create deep intimacy and connection, enhance your ability to feel and respond to a partner, develop your ability to feel and deepen your interactions, and feel the heart of others and the world.

An Evening Event
Members $35/ Nonmembers $45

Embodied Intimacy: Cultivate Passion to Deepen Our Connection A Practice Day


A beautiful weekend of profound connection

I found the weekend to be of profound connection to myself and others. I particularly appreciated the gentle approach with which the entire weekend was led. There was time to sink into each practice, I wasn’t asked to do too much too soon, there was ease and relaxation infused into the whole process. I felt the solid experience and grace with which Michaela and Steve held the space. I really appreciate that both facilitators have extensive practice, skill and experience merging the science of eastern and western philosophies. I also appreciate that Michaela is a living embodiment of her work and yet is also a business woman and wife. This adds a great degree of credibility to her as a teacher. Thank you for a wonderful weekend. I certainly hope to dive into more of your work.

A safe, supportive, fun and empowering space

A safe, supportive, fun and empowering space was held where I could connect with my archetype through dance and the support of Michaela and the group. I left the workshop feeling closely connected to my body, my feminine energy and life force and with a strong sense of my personal power.
