  • Relational Intimacy is a process of deepening and evolving our sense of relatedness to ourselves, each other, and our natural world. This is an experiential and mystical workshop designed to heal the wounds of the trauma-induced adaptive child and tap into the natural genius and interdependency of the wise adult. Come, discover the magic and mystery of relational intimacy.

We will also learn the alchemy of living relationally and interdependently which will create a new paradigm for living a thriving life.

    The topics Michael will be exploring include, Establishing Trust and Safety, The Art of Presencing, Your Relation to Self, Healing the Mother Wound, Healing the Father Wound, Developing and Belonging, and Relational Intimacy Practices.

  • In this episode, Michael shares his recent Peace Talk from his new weekly online global meditation gatherings.

    The theme this week is global social witnessing, being present to whatever is arising in our lives and in the world. Michael invited everyone to look at the idea of the relationship between our inner peacefulness and the outer world and how everything that manifests in the world begins with imagining.

    Michael invites you to join the weekly global family where we look at the ‘war' inside of ourselves, regaining our inner peace to affect outer peace. We explore new possibilities for igniting and integrating the peace that can only be found and experienced from our inner sanctuary. The stillness where everything waits to be born!

    Thank you for listening, being peace in the world, and just being you.

  • Mel Schwartz is a psychotherapist, marriage counselor, author, 2xTEDx speaker, podcaster, and leadership consultant. He earned his MSW from Columbia University in NYC and Master of Philosophy from Lancaster University in England.

    Mel is one of the first contemporary practicing psychotherapists to distill the basic principles of quantum theory into therapeutic approaches, which enable people to overcome their challenges and live to their fullest potential.

    Mel has enjoyed several defining moments in his life. In mid-life, in business and with two young children, Mel had been living the life he had planned. Yet, he felt a desire for deeper fulfillment, longing for a calling with far deeper purpose. In one of his defining moments, Mel chose to welcome the uncertainty that lay ahead as he embarked on an entirely new path. He closed his business, applied to, and enrolled in graduate school to follow his emerging passion–serving others as a psychotherapist. Mel became excited by new ways of thinking that propelled him to transcend the limiting protocols taught in graduate school. He began to immerse himself in emergent ways of thinking coming from quantum physics, philosophy, and other areas beyond the field of psychology. This evolving perspective enabled him to forge a singular new therapeutic approach from which to assist his clients.

    Mel’s first book, The Art of Intimacy, The Pleasure of Passion, broke new ground in illuminating the path to joyful relationships and has benefitted countless people.
    Mel is a member of the International Society for Consciousness Studies and has been interviewed extensively on TV, print, radio and podcasts. melschwartz.com/
