The Intimacy Dojo is a place where people can learn, practice and play the art of intimacy.

Intimacy is knowing and relating to one’s deepest nature. Connecting with what is essential and core in ourselves and others. Intimacy can be emotional, energetic, spiritual and/or physical.

The Intimacy Dojo exists on-line for people everywhere, and there is a local DFW (Dallas-Fort Worth) group that meets in person.

Without intimacy, life can be cold, lonely and empty. This is a human condition, it doesn’t matter if you’re gay, straight, bisexual, pansexual, transgendered, vanilla or kinky, skinny or fat, young or old. We all long for connection and warmth.

That which you seek is seeking you. ~Rumi

Most of us don’t know how to consciously nuture and open to intimacy. We don’t know how to invite connection and deep sharing.

I know. I was there. I felt so alone. My name is Cathy and I founded The Intimacy Dojo.

Occasionally, I’d stumble on a connection, and it felt amazing. But I didn’t know how to create or invite those experiences. I thought there was something wrong with me. I decided that the people who had connections were different than me. Almost another species. I thought they had connection because they were funny, charismatic, beautiful…somehow different.

Then I found out that the real difference was skills that allow connection. A slightly different way of being that invited and attracted people. It sometimes still surprises me that it works so beautifully, and adds so much value to my life and the people I connect with.

I want to share those skills and ways of being (all authentic and natural, just buried under a bit of old debris) with you. If you want to learn more, sign up for our free newsletter, and follow us in facebook and twitter.

There will be guest articles and videos from the experts who have inspired and helped me the most. And a page of events and resources to help you connect with people that inspire and touch you.

If you know of events and resources in the DFW area, or nationally, that are a good fit for this site, please let us know at: support@theintimacydojo.com

I created this group not only to share key skills.

For me, personally, Dallas is a big city and it can be a lonely place. I work a lot, and I don’t have time to spend going on countless dates, or trying to make friends one at a time. I know I’m not the only person who wants to hang out with fun, interesting, cool people who crave authentic, meaningful, and conscious connections. I’m looking for curious, kind people who what to explore connection, intimacy and community. I know there are those of you out there that feel the same. I hope you’ll join us!

And if you have a sense that this is needed in your area, and want to form a dojo in your town, email and we’ll see how we can help!

May Warmth and Connection bring joy to your life.
