Intimacy | Connection | Sexuality | Relationship
These four focuses underly every group I facilitate. For women and men to experience a liberation from all external and self-created blocks to experiencing the types of intimacy, connection, sexuality and relationships we most desire.
"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 Fogel
"What I most like about her event is the connection I feel with those who attend, even those who are there for the first time. Arielle makes the event feel "safe" and this has the effect of inviting people to participate and "play." Time flies and when it ends I usually wish it would actually go a little longer! I've been attending events for 5 years now and Essential Intimacy is the best one I know of in the North Bay, and the only one I go to on a regular basis. I miss it when I am away too long.I can't recommend it highly enough. If you have thought about coming but have been "on the fence," give it a try, once. You will come back". - Roy P.
"I’m a veteran group-goer and have been facilitating groups myself for 5 years, and often it’s hit-or-miss with facilitators these days--but being in Arielle’s Intimacy Groups was right on the mark! Arielle holds a watertight container for people to unfold and allow their true selves to be seen in a group setting. I’ve seen others who come in shy and closed transform into light and open beings by the end of a surprisingly short session. If you’re looking to deepen in intimacy within yourself or your community, I highly recommend working with Arielle!"
- Lauren Arrow, founder of ProcessSing
"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 Burns, The Business Monk
"I have been attending Essential Intimacy, led by Arielle, for the past year. Since that time, I have been noticing the tremendous change of ease in connecting with people around me, I have been told that I project a sense of safety and openness, so more intimate connections can naturally occur. I appreciate her capacity to exude beauty and challenge me to create more beautiful life for myself." - Anatoly V.
