Love and Passion is based on the Hot MonogamyTM program created by Dr. Pat Love and Kathleen McFadden.

  • To pinpoint your specific struggles around sexual intimacy.
  • To draw on your unique strengths.
  • To become acquainted with the nuances of your own sexuality.
  • To bring more pleasure to your one-of-a-kind partner.

Is This Workshop Appropriate For Me?

This workshop is intended for heterosexual couples in a committed love relationship where both partners are medically able to experience a sexual relationship. We will gather together for lectures, followed by private time for personal exploration and sharing. Participants are not required to share with the group. Your safety and confidentiality will be maintained throughout the weekend. Although we show movie clips to support topics in our lectures, no movie clip contains sexually explicit images.

What Does This Workshop Format Include?

  • Lectures, supported visually with the latest in presentation graphics, about the purpose and dynamics of your relationship.
  • One demonstration of communication skills.
  • Practicing new behaviors and skills with your partner. While this workshop is conducted in a group environment you are not required to participate in personal group interaction. You may share as much or as little about yourself as you feel comfortableThe only time we ask you to say something about yourself is during the "icebreaker" at the beginning of Day One.  This is not group therapy. You share only with your partner in a safe, comfortable and confidential manner.
