“I attended two of Arielle's workshops at a retreat I attended. Two months later I find myself mentioning my experience in so many of my conversations. Arielle was so down to earth and real. No ego whatsoever. Just raw and vulnerable in her shares, which I found to be so refreshing and helpful in me doing the same. The exercises she had us engage in were so thought provoking. They were deep and a bit edgy. They pushed my thinking into new spaces, especially around desire and self-worth. I look forward to attending more of her workshops. She is the real deal”. - Keri V.

“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.
Testimonials from Past Workshops
"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.
"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!"

“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 her workshops 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 Relationship Dynamics class was so rich and well orchestrated! Arielle was able to hold space for the entire room really beautifully while simultaneously using her Divine Masculine to guide the class to keep moving forward and keep it stimulating. I highly recommend going to any offering this woman has!" - Susana 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.
"Arielle creates a great environment for practicing communication skills that you can take out into your relationships. Expect to connect with the edges of your comfort zone and have an opportunity to flex your “honoring yourself” muscles within a safe container. 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.
