Probably you’ve had painful experiences that the Hollywood myth of ‘ Happily ever after’ isn't true. 

In order to deepen love and feel fresh and alive in your relating, more is needed. What is that? 

For relationships to thrive we surely need love, but also skills for intimacy

This immersion is for couples who want to explore and create ways for deeper connection with yourselves, your partner and your world. It’s valuable whether you’re at the beginning of or well into your relationship, whether you feel empty-handed or well-equipped with tools.


The purpose of this immersion is to give your relationship dedicated time and focus to deepen.

We will open doors and hold space for you as a couple to embark on a creative process towards new discoveries and rewarding results in your relationship.


There will be a maximum of 8 couples.

The multi-part format of this experiential training offers you an extended timeframe to try out new ways of relating as a couple. You will be able to experiment with creating new results while still being part of a supportive group journey. 

Using practices from Possibility Management and other bodies of work we will explore and learn tools for: 

  • multi-level intimacy (physical, sexual, mental, emotional and beyond) 

  • communication skills 

  • having difficult conversations 

  • letting go of expectations & resolving conflict 

  • the art of king & queen making

  • empowering each other’s purpose


Expand your tool box in a powerful, enjoyable and fun way.
