The emerging science of interpersonal neurobiology is revolutionizing sexology, mapping out how bodies, brains and nervous systems are not separate from each other, but in the constant process of connecting, changing felt states, and shaping each other. Intentionally accessing these systems harnesses powerful pathways for pleasure. This workshop explores how the quality of connection, rather than the activities involved, leads to great sex, offering simple embodied practices that enhance the body's capacity for connection.
