Developing Intimate Relationships: Cultivating Friendship and Romance (for Men who love Men)

Healthy Intimacy is the ability and the choice to be close, loving and vulnerable. Unhealthy intimacy is obsessive, clingy or controlling and often results in problems like: getting too close too quickly and rejecting/fearing friendship with other men.

This workshop is experiential and interactive. You’ll have opportunities to talk one-on-one with several men during the workshop. The workshop will include guided visualizations, physical movement (according to your ability) and group discussions.

The workshop will have two sections: the first focuses on developing and sustaining friendships with other men. We’ll address questions like:
  • » Are you looking for more intimacy in your life with both friends and lovers?
  • » Do you feel lonely more often than you’d like to admit?
  • » Would you like to deepen your friendships with other men?
  • » Do you find it hard to trust other men? Would you like to change that?
The second section – after a short break – will focus on intimacy in romantic/sexual relationships and will address questions like:
  • » How do you separate emotional from sexual/physical intimacy, or do you?
  • » In a romantic relationship, is your intimacy affected by jealousy and/or insecurity? What factors in your relationship deepen the intimacy?
  • » What factors lessen it?
  • » If you are in an open relationship or marriage, how intimate are you with your sexual partners? Does this increase or decrease the intimacy you have with your partner/husband?

Come join us – the workshop is limited to 25 men – exploring these questions with a safe, supportive group of men, facilitated by San Diego psychotherapist/author Michael Kimmel.
