The Love, Intimacy and Sexuality workshops provide a safe, supportive environment to:
- Learn intimate communication;
- Improve your relationships.
HAI's Facilitators are uniquely skilled. They enable you to enhance your relationships in ways you may not currently imagine.

When I experienced my first HAI workshop in the UK in 1999, I already had a long personal growth journey behind me. With all my curiosity, my lust for life, my dedication to heal and empower myself, and create the relationships that I craved, I felt I was “coming home.”
5 years later I brought HAI to Germany. Since then I have been the producer of this thriving international community. The community is based on love, respect, fun, authenticity and mutual support.
I have been enriched by these core values in all respects of my life. This include how I relate to myself, relate to those around me, and even my beloved profession as a singing teacher. I am full of joy and gratitude for the community we created here. Cheers to all who love to love. And Namaste.
HAI Workshop continue in Germany
Although HAI UK is not currently planning UK workshops, there are HAI workshops in Germany. Two useful links are:
These bilingual workshops are in English with translation into German.
The workshops are at Seminarhof, Schöppingen which is between Munster and the Dutch border, 400 miles from London. Compared to the cost of UK workshops, they are very good value.
