Who is this program for?

The Art of Intentional Relationships is for anyone interested in creating a future Amazing Relationship AND for anyone already in a relationship who wants to build their relationship skills so that they can be in an Amazing Relationship with their current partner. Our belief is that it is never too late to create new relationship patterns – it simply takes Intention and Attention.


What if I’m not in a relationship?

You do not need to be in a relationship to participate in this program. You can join with a friend or participate solo. If you’re at an Intensive or on a call on your own and we are starting a partnered practice, we will pair you with another solo practitioner. Our only request, in fact it will be a signed agreement, is that you not use the opportunity to hit on or stalk other participants.

What if I’m in a relationship but my partner doesn’t want to participate?

It is absolutely possible to participate in this program without your partner. We’ll even guide you on integrating what you’ve learned into your life if you think there’s room for it in your relationship.


Is this a welcome place for LBGTQ+ participants?

Everyone is welcomed and celebrated in The Art of Intentional Relationships. We will sometimes use the term “masculine” and “feminine” to describe the universal energies we all have that are not bound by gender or sexuality.


What if I miss a session?

All calls will be recorded and available on a private and secure site. We will not be able to help you make up the Intensive experience.


What does it mean that The Art of Intentional Relationships comes with a “lifetime membership”?

For as long as we are running future iterations of AIR, you will have access to the recordings and are welcome to join the Office Hours.


Can I get a refund if I do not complete The Art of Intentional Relationships?

We will not offer refunds if you do not complete this course.
