A Guide for Couples and Individuals in the 21st Century...


We demand a lot from our relationships these days: We want a life partner and equal as well as a passionate lover. We want nothing less than a best friend, lifelong love, romance, and great sex—and such an expectation is a fairly new phenomenon in relationship history.

Are we setting ourselves up for disappointment by demanding too much? We’re most definitely not, says Terry Real. Lifelong love is within the reach of any couple willing to learn a few basic skills, skills for imbuing your love relationship with a quality Terry calls fierce intimacy.

This workshop will give you the skill set that will enable you to imbue your relationship with fierce intimacy. You’ll learn how to tell the truth to your partner with love, unafraid of the challenge. You’ll learn how to cherish your partner while standing up firmly for your own needs. And you will learn how to keep passion alive through radical honesty and deep emotional engagement.
You will also learn practical techniques for:
Identifying and articulating your deepest needs to each other
Standing up for yourself and loving your partner at the same time
Moving into relational empowerment that engenders success for both you and your partner
Mastering the art of relational ju-jitsu, responding fairly with play and generosity to whatever comes your way in the relationship
Reviving or augmenting the passion in your relationship
Connecting at a deep, emotional, authentic level
"Nothing is more important in our lives than our relationships. A great relationship boosts your immune system, opens your heart, and keeps you vital and creative. Relational strife can be a terrible stressor, literally making you ill. Yet most deep relationships sometimes go through very challenging periods. For years I’ve spoken to audiences about, “Normal marital hatred.” And not one person has ever asked me what I mean by that.

Truth is, intimacy has the power to break and remake us – healing our deepest wounds. But not the way we think. This workshop teaches you how to leverage your relationship to work on, even transform, yourself. Because we all marry our unfinished business – and that’s a potential blessing.”
