Flesh & Spirit

Flesh & Spirit is a profound 3 day seminar for the committed couple seeking deeper love, intimacy, connection and communication.  It will transform how you relate to each other. 

Explore new territory in your intimate relationship with the support of a small group of couples. By participating in this weekend, we soon realize that we are not alone in the issues which arise in our relationship.  We find that we are gentle mirrors for each other.

In this seminar, we lead couples through the council process, where deep listening and heart-felt speaking combine to transform the relationship.  In mens, womens, and mixed circles, we will witness council, share dreams, and explore energetic awareness.  

Flesh & Spirit affirms the union of the sexual and the spiritual in committed relationships.  We honor the privacy of each couple and there is no nudity in the workshop.

The teachers of this course, Rich & Shoshana Wheeler and Rob & Kelila Heller,  are committed to the practice of Nonviolent Communication and the Way of Council to deepen and sustain their relationships.  They have studied under the tutelage of multiple teachers including the founders of the Flesh & Spirit process, Jack Zimmerman and Jaquelyn McCandless (as presented in their book Flesh & Spirit: The Mystery of Intimate Relationship).
