Psychotherapist and bestselling author Esther Perel is one of today’s most revered voices on modern relationships and sexuality. She has devoted her entire professional life to helping couples find a sense of aliveness and vitality in their connections—bolstering both the quality of their lives and their relationships.

Building on more than 35 years of experience as an individual and couples therapist, Esther brings new perspective to the state of modern love, communication and connection, sharing lessons that apply broadly to relationships in the world at large.

In this workshop, Esther shares insights into emotional and erotic intelligence, setting boundaries, managing conflict and the ever-changing identity of modern marriage and family. Explore the tensions, obstacles, and anxieties that arise when our quest for love and security conflicts with our pursuit of adventure and freedom.

Join Esther for a closer look at relationships and intimacy. This workshop is open to the general public in addition to offering continuing education credits for some licensed professionals.
