Workshops about love, intimacy and sexuality

HAI Workshops offer individuals and couples the opportunity to make profound change – away from isolation and separation, towards connection and community.  HAI welcomes adults of all ages, relationship statuses, ethno-cultural backgrounds, socio-economic statuses, physical abilities, gender identities, and sexual orientations and/or practices. 

Guided by skilled facilitators, participants make real and lasting changes in their lives.  HAI workshops and events empower participants to celebrate their uncensored beauty and step into their personal power.
