SAND presents: Radiant Intimacy


May 24-27, 2019


1440 Multiversity
800 Bethany Drive
Scotts Valley, CA 95066





This event is hosted by SAND & 1440 Multiversity.

We all long for love. We all long to be intimately connected to ourselves and others. Yet, for most of us, love and sexuality can be complex and confusing.

  • How do we keep love alive?
  • Can desire and safety coexist?
  • How do we navigate unmet expectations?

Join 1440 Multiversity, Michaela Boehm and Steve James, along with the founders of the Science and Nonduality series—Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo—for an innovative weekend of experiential workshops exploring relationships, sexuality, and love.

Over the course of three days with leading scientists, authors, artists, and teachers, you will:

  • Hear what neuroscience can teach us about love
  • Expand your understanding of intimacy, attachment styles, and trauma
  • Explore post-patriarchy relationships, gender equality, new definitions of femininity and masculinity, and modern-day parenting and sexual dynamics
  • Take home tools to navigate the complexities of modern-day relating.

Michaela & Steve are wonderful teachers and so incredibly supportive

Understanding the practices that underpin erotic friction & how to cultivate polarity in a workshop setting was incredibly valuable. Michaela & Steve are wonderful teachers and so incredibly supportive.

Michaela and Steve facilitate the safest of containers

Michaela and Steve facilitate the safest of containers with grace, humor and a vast knowledge base. Both eye and heart opening, their workshop allowed me to sink into myself, unpacking layers. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore what intimacy means to them, both solo and in partnership.
