An Evening of Authentic Connection Games

(This is an introductory drop-in event. RSVP is, however, appreciated.)

In a world full of distractions and disconnection, many of us are hungry for an essential nutrient in our relationships--that nutrient is intimacy.

We yearn for friends, partners, lovers, and community members beckon out our brilliance, celebrate our desires, and respect the sanctity of our personal boundaries.

Unfortunately, we live in a culture that hasn't given us a framework for how to communicate or connect from this place of radically connected vulnerability in community...

Which is exactly why Essential Intimacy was created.

This gathering creates a safe, structured, sexy and playful space to speak candidly our desires, our insecurities, and our leading edges for growth and transformation. We talk about relationship, attraction, sex and conscious communication. Basically, everything is on the table.

Join us for an evening of authentic connection games that invite you to play with a group of open-minded people to reveal the real YOU.

Facilitated by Arielle Brown, each game is designed to invite you dive or tip toe into intimacy at whatever pace feels good to you.

Structure of the Evening:

7:30-7:45pm - Connect, Refreshments & Settle In

7:45-9:15pm - Begin Essential Intimacy Games

9:15-9:30pm - Mingle & Enjoy Snacks

You are welcome to show up as you are, happy or sad, put together or utterly a mess--knowing that *all* of you is welcome.

Important: Arrive on time. We begin at 7:45pm and don't allow late entry in order to preserve the intimacy of the group.

Cost is $20 to attend. Cash only, please.

Reflections on Arielle's Facilitation Style:

"Arielle is real, transparent, daring, and kind. She is a magical embodiment of courage, authenticity and pure possibility. Arielle creates an auspicious and safe container to fall apart in, to get bone dry honest in, and, most importantly one where you can BE YOURSELF. Through working with Arielle, I learned that getting truly honest with oneself that one can begin to create a life that aligns with their highest truth, potential and desires." - Kristin S.

"To fully integrate facilitation with rawness, event-direction with realness, and group-holding with vulnerability is, essentially, an impossible game. Arielle wins this impossible game. Again and again. Every time I’ve been to one of her events— as a participant or a co-facilitator— she has blown me away with her ability to simultaneously channel intuitive wisdom, hold clear structure, and be 100% herself." - Dave B.

"Arielle has a facilitation style that is inclusive, and one where one feels seen and heard. She leads with a quiet power - one that is soft and warm, yet holds a strong and safe container. She is grounded and approachable and she has a way about her of being able to easily encourage vulnerability and authenticity". - Sharon F.

Women's Circle: Conversations on Sex & Intimacy

Imagine an intimate space where you can gather with women to speak openly and deeply about our desires, about relationship, about intimacy, about sex.

Our bodies our built to be receivers for pleasure and intimate connection, yet we live in a culture that still frowns upon women embracing our sexual sovereignty. This Women's Circle is for women who desire more freedom, more confidence, and more pleasure in their sexual experiences...and then invite those desires to ripple out into every area of life.

Within a safe, structured, and expansive container, you are invited to remove the masks and get *real* about deeper desires and inquiries about intimacy, relationship, attract and sex.

Come with an open mind, a willing heart, and a curiosity about what is possible when we allow ourself to be witnessed both in our light and in our shadow. Structure of the Evening:

7:30-7:45pm - Connect, Refreshments & Settle In

7:45-9:15pm - Engage in Women's Circle

9:15-9:30pm - Mingle & Enjoy Refreshments

Please arrive at 7:30pm. The doors will lock at 7:45pm and no one will be admitted after that time. Cost is $20 to attend. Cash only, please. 

To attend, RSVP on Meetup here.

Intimacy Energetics Workshop

5:00 PM17:00

Intimacy Energetics Workshop

Join us in a space designed for those who want to experience a new and exciting depth of intimacy and connection in their romantic relationships.

Our society has given us a incredibly limiting script and scope of how to engage in romantic relationship, and many people are looking for a new way to engage in intimacy--one where we our encouraged to lead with our authentic desires, boundaries, and our personal truths.

Many of us walk around energetically or emotionally guarded against our partners, with the intention of protecting ourselves from being rejected, judged, or rocking the boat. And as a result, many of us hide who we truly are in order to "make our relationships work".

These protective walls often prevent us from creating relationships that redefine what we believe is possible when we embrace a new depth of vulnerability and honesty about who we are, what we want and what we need in connection with another.

The Intimacy Energetics Workshop is designed for couples who want to create a deeper experience of intimacy, connection and arousal in their relationships, and cultivate a new and improved language for communities their needs, desires and emotional experience.

Through a combination of experiential exercises, embodiment practices and structured group dialogues, this workshop will create a safe, structured, open space to begin melting the barriers to connection between you and the people you love and care for in your life.

Logistics for the Workshop:

This workshop is open to 12 people (6 women, 6 men). Singles and couples are welcome, as the subject matter applies similarly to either. 

Cost: $100 per single person, $175 per couple

This is an upper-level workshop and advance registration is required. 

To schedule an interview, fill out this form. We'll find a time that works for a call to discuss your desires and see if this workshop is a good fit for you.

What People Say About This Workshop:

“From the moment you walk into the studio, Arielle makes you feel warm, welcomed, and accepted. She is a very engaged leader, listens with great intent, and sets the tone for the group to be a safe place for sharing and expressing raw emotion. I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking to deepen their connection to intimacy and embrace the realness of asking for what you want; without fear of rejection, judgment, or consequences. You will feel empowered, open, and leave with a newfound strength to obtain the intimacy you have been longing for. “ ~ Jennifer W.

"Arielle’s emotional intimacy workshop was a deeply rewarding experience for me. The ability to connect with someone on such a deep level in just one 3-hour workshop is a testament to the power of the embodied presence that Arielle teaches and the safe container she creates. What I took away is something I haven’t gotten in any other setting, and yet I’ve been able to re-create several times in the two short weeks since. Learning what it feels like, in my body, to state my desires and boundaries, to hear the same from my partner, and to respond to requests in (and out of) integrity with my body becomes not so much a verbal skill to master, but more like muscle memory: I can do it again and again without having to think about it, like riding a bike". ~ Matthew P.

"Arielle led the group through a natural progression of exercises that eased me towards some powerful revelations about myself, and helped me to achieve profound intimacy with my partner I was paired with. Expect to connect with your edges, get in touch with what you are and aren’t comfortable with, and have an opportunity to flex your “honoring yourself” muscles within a safe container. Arielle creates a great environment for practicing communication skills that you can take out into your relationships. This experience was an extremely valuable part of my self-development and I highly recommend it to both men and women who want to deepen their relationship with themselves and others". ~ Julia G.
