Intimate Communication

Is communication the most powerful key to intimacy, love, and fulfillment in our relationships?

Well, yes and no. 

Say what? I know, you’d expect me to say “yes of course”, here I am trying to sell you a communication workshop. And we’re well into the 21st century, so everyone already knows how important communication is, even if we still have struggles and need guidance and practice. And I agree of course, I took my first communication course in the 80’s, and I’ve been counseling couples for decades. So what do I mean?

What I’m trying to say is: excellent communication knowledge and skills are absolutely necessary ~ but not sufficient. You’re not getting anywhere without them, but they’ll only get you so far when things get tough. We can learn all the right moves from Non-Violent Communication (and let’s all praise and kiss the lotus feet of Marshall Rosenberg!), but if that’s all we’ve got we may still come up short. Some of us even know folks who go through the motions of that, but we still feel something is missing there.

So what makes the difference?

We can talk about this a number of ways, but a simple word is connection. And we can only connect with others effectively to the extent that we’re in self-connection, which is primary. It’s our presence, in our being, in our heart, in our care, and in a spirit of openness, that creates the space for true communication which is satisfying every time. Raising communication to the level of communion. That brings more intimacy to all our communications in life, especially in our most important relationships with beloveds, in business, and with friends and community ~ which supports our own feeling of relatedness and connection at every level.

And that can be a tall order, when there’s a lot at stake, and one or both people are triggered, or not really feeling safe. That’s a skill too, and there’s more to understand and get in touch with there than most communication courses address. HOW exactly do we do that?

In this workshop we will:

☸ Learn a new paradigm that will deepen and improve all our communications
☸ Get clear about exactly how to practice it consistently
☸ Understand and experience just what gets in the way
☸ Learn how to move through that to connection
☸ And get a thorough introduction or refresher in the foundations of compassionate communication


Registration includes a beautiful 20 page full color booklet with amazing communication tools.

TESTIMONIES of past attendees:

“I am amazed at how effective David’s methods are. By gently guiding me through difficult emotions and situations, he helped me achieve a powerful, trusting, and meaningful relationship with my partner as well as with myself. We are super happy with the work David has done with us, both individually and as a couple. I did not know it was even possible to have such a conscious, loving relationship but here we are – and David helped us get there! David, I cannot thank you enough!”
~ Aron S, Avian Zoologist

“I felt safe and seen, and the quality of what David shared was high. David comes truly from his heart, things become light around him. David knows how to shift pain to love and acceptance, like no other. A man who knows the heart of women and men who long to turn to love. Your openness and wisdom, your genuine love and interest… Thank you David.”
~ Carolina

“Oh my god you are amazing. Every time we meet with you, we seem to evolve in our relationship. Your expertise and kindness are priceless. I am in awe about how perceptive you continue to be. It’s pretty incredible. Thank you for your help, you are delightful. Eternally grateful. ♡”
~ Jennie

“Without a doubt David Imiri came into my life and assisted myself as well as my partner through some very crucial transitions. I believe that without his loving presence we would not be where we are today. I believe firmly in coaching as a catalyst for transformation in oneself and one’s relationships. David Imiri is an excellent catalyst. I highly recommend him. Much love”
