The ART OF INTIMACY is right for you IF:
- you feel heart broken or victimized: sometimes, often or always.
- have difficulty meeting potential partners or the One.
- have lost fire/passion in your marriage/partnership
- you feel stuck or gridlocked in one way or another.
- you feel more drained than nurtured by your intimacy
- you have poor boundaries or trouble enforcing them.
- you have given up on happy intimacy
- you have a hard time saying yes when you mean yes and no when you mean no.

By working with Max and Tobin in this hands-on, intuitive and interactive way, he will gently and directly guide you to explore the power of your sexual essence (masculine/feminine) and how this relates to your overall happiness.
They will hold space for you in answering the question: “What is my predominant sexual essence and how do I honor and hold it within myself to connect with the opposite sex and with Life at large ?”
On this journey you will break free from old patterns pf confusion, feeling trapped and you will tap into your innate power that has been locked away for years.

You will:
- learn to be more authentic, to put yourself first and to let go of your need to take care of your partner.
- develop and maintain stronger sexual chemistry by knowing and honoring your essence.
- be more confident and have hotter dates
- restore passion & tenderness when its lost
- embrace your shadow, kinks, fantasies the forbidden, and let them add to the magic of your relationship.
- be creative using erotic role play

“I had two sessions with Max and am already feeling a huge shift in my attitude, feelings and perspective regarding my intimate life. and the changes are starting to happen in a deep and profound way.
I feel grateful for you Max for your deep listening, discerning guidance and compassionate heart. it’s incredible how quickly you were able to zoom into the issues and provide loving guidance. you are a gift !”
— Natalie Zeituny, Conscious Executive Business Coach

“My wife and I are going though a major transition after raising kids and moving towards retirement. Our interest in sexual exploration are at the opposite ends of the poles. However, after just one session with Max, he re-framed the problem in a way that gave me the opportunity to have an honest heart to heart discussion with my wife as I have never had before in 40 years. My original conversational style would have led us down the same path with no exit. Because of this, we are now working on the problem together. Max was able to dig deep into my intentions so that my communication went from messy and somewhat manipulative to honest and straightforward. As a result, my wife was also able to communicate her needs clearly and now we are closer together than ever. Thanks Max…”

TestimoniaL: I did not know what to expect as this was my first Intimacy Puja. It proved to be a surprisingly intense, heart-opening and moving experience which yielded many insights into my own communication and relating patterns. Max and Xanet capably held a safe and containing space in which to explore male-female dynamics. It proved to be a valuable learning experience in boundary-setting, intimate communication and achieving greater emotional opening. I would recommend the Intimacy Puja to singles and couples who are seeking to build their intimacy skills, open to new ways of relating, and take their relationships to a new level.
