Today is Yom Kippur the Jewish holiday of atonement and forgiveness. It is also time to pause, contemplate, and remember. As part of the coming autumnal equinox, it can also be time to create rituals of moving inward, with gratitude and appreciation.

No matter what brings couple into my psychotherapy practice, to work on their relationship, inevitably we end up talking about the longing for sex, desire, and intimacy.

Ester Perel is one of the experts in the field of sex, intimacy, erotic, and desire.

“One element of sexual health and well-being I have focused on for many years is erotic desire.

Today, our entire sexuality is organized and powered by desire.

For the first time in human history, we want to experience passion — for the long haul — with a partner (or partners).

Just because we feel like it.

Not because we want to have eight babies and not, at least in the West, because it’s a woman’s marital duty.

We want sex at home for connection and pleasure.

And we want that desire to last.

The couples I work with are diverse in infinite ways. But two basic questions invariably come up, across cultures:

1. How can we keep passion alive?
2. What do we do once desire is gone?

These questions are common even among couples who describe themselves as loving, trusting, and caring.

Desire and passion are our human life-force.

So in the name of sexual health, today I want to lay out my own definition of this important term. “ Ester Perel

I have just completed facilitating and leading a unique Hold Me Tight® experience in Herzliya, Israel.

We created a two days workshop, designed for therapists, which was a combination of experiencing the workshop as participants, learning about how to facilitate a workshop, as well as, getting more familiar with the 7 conversations in the Hold Me Tight book and program. The group of therapist and myself, emerged from the two days, with a new practice that I felt was enriched, interesting, and delightful.

It was mostly in Hebrew with group efforts to help me with the translation of the material as we went along.

Big Thanks and Toda Raba, to Osnat Cohen-Ganor, for organizing, hosting, and being the force behind this great opportunity!

Yet again I was so grateful to Sue Johnson for creating EFT and giving us a map we can use to help our couples, over and over again. (Hold Me Tight® is a registered trademark to Sue Johnson).

I was truly honored for the experience in Israel and the opportunity to meet a group of dedicated and professional therapists who are part of EFT Israel.

This is my latest blog, it is a tough topic but one we need to talk about. As depression and suicide rates are reaching epidemic crisis levels, so is loneliness and the sense of being left out. At times, it is possible to become hopeless and helpless.

We used to belong in tribes, where we felt connected. Now sometimes we live in tribes of ‘one’.
We are blessed to be living here in a community where we feel that we are not alone.

Isolation and loneliness are danger cues for our primary survival. Our DNA is wired into that connection as a basic safety cue for survival. Our DNA codes loneliness and isolation as a threat to our survival.
PLEASE, do not hesitate to reach out for help.
You are not alone.

How Do We Know If We Found The ‘One’..

There is one question that keeps showing up for all of us. It sure has been on my mind, and in my heart, ever since my first ‘falling in loves’ when I was a teenager, and throughout my adult life… ‘ARE YOU THE ONE’? ‘How would I know that you are the one’..

Spring is here! The river is flowing and the tulips are in bloom.
Give yourself and your partner the gift of vulnerability, CONNECTION and RENEWAL.

We still have few openings in our upcoming Hold Me Tight®. We are usually sold out by now, so don't miss this amazing opportunity. We are also offering few scholarship gifts if you need it.

We keep the group small and intimate, with lots of time to work as a couple, with two experienced master relationship experts.

BUT instead you:
• Have recurring fights without resolution?
• Lack affection, intimacy or sex?
• Feel alone or betrayed?

Do You want to feel more closeness, understanding, and engagement?
Have good fulfilling communication, and fun loving relationship?

At our Hold Me Tight relationship enhancement Workshop:
you will learn and experience how to:
• Affirm strengths in your relationship by developing understanding and bonding.
• Address negative cycle patterns, and learn why they show up, and how to get out of them.
• Learn how to repair and forgive injuries, and become vulnerable with each other.

Talking about what hurts - is difficult.
We need to feel safe to take risks and share the pain and hurt we feel. When we can reach out, and be vulnerable with those we trust, we can start healing.
We try to push away our feelings, because we are afraid of rejections and abandonment. Read more in my blog..
