Most of us have pondered questions regarding what makes for really fulfilling relationships. How do we sustain and grow relationships over time? How do we respect and appreciate each other? What are the key ingredients? What is the mechanism of healthy conflict resolution? What is the role of spirit, sexuality, and sensuousness (contrasted to sensuality) in loving relationship? And how are men and women different and similar?

In this two-morning workshop David will address the “Nine Ingredients of Lasting and Fulfilling Relationships” with a special emphasis on the love experience of the nine types, the sexual experience and its diminishments according to type, sensuousness, and what each type needs to be aware of to enrich and sustain their vital relationships.
