A little on the intention behind this Intimate Conversations ……

What would it be like to have soul led, passionate, deep, fulfilling intimacy, emotionally and s*xually?

The divide between men & women can feel unforgiving and irreparable at times. It remains in place simply because we don’t have enough avenues to express the truth of how we feel without feeling shamed, without triggering another, or without coming up against reactivity.

“Intimate Conversations” is a unique opportunity to explore the topics that impact us all in our human experience of relating and connection. It is an intentional deep dive into the relationship realm. We explore all that is real, but perhaps not discussed openly in everyday conversations. This is an effort to bridge the gap between men and women, by speaking to the unspoken.

What we commonly discover through meeting each other in presence and engaging in an intimate conversation, is our sameness, our shared humanity; forming a space of honesty where there is no “us” against “them” vibe.
At these events, we take you on a journey into discovering more about intimacy, attraction, relationships and how to relate to the opposite sex more fully and deeply. Our intention is to support you in feeling more empowered & self-assured in your relationships.

What to expect at this event…..

If you’ve had issues in the past, or are having current issues, within your relationship and relating to your partner in and around intimacy….

If you seek to understand what it is that your partner may be desiring from you and your relationship…..

Or, if you are wanting to attract a healthy relationship into your life & deepen your connections?

This event is for you!!!

This intimate conversation is a mixed-gender event. These conversations are intimate, edgy & powerful, a truly unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of both yourself and others, particularly the opposite sex, and to deepen your connections.

Together we embark on an intentional deep dive into the lived experience of men & women in modern day dating, love & relationship, in an effort to support each other and navigate the challenges of relating.

We have six amazing speakers, three men and three women – EJ Love, Emily Claire, Jane Nguyen and our male guest speakers – Bear Nutting, Brooke Lucas and Duncan Burns.

Together, our speakers bring a wealth of wisdom in the fields of intimate relating, sexuality, sacred sexuality, neo tantra embodiment, relationship coaching, men’s work and women’s work. They are passionate about supporting men & women in their growth and are keen to provide helpful insights for people to gain a deeper understanding of their experiences with the other sex.

We will begin the evening with a beautiful connection process in pairs to enable us to come into presence with another, feel seen and experience connection.
We will then separate into men’s and women’s ‘huddles,’ you will be supported to consider the ways in which you have been impacted by your relations with men/women, past & present, and the questions you really want to ask to gain more clarity.

Then we will come together as men and women and dive into an “Intimate Conversation” with our guest speakers, an open forum where you can ask any question you really want to ask to gain more clarity and guidance.
You will have the opportunity to ask the panel questions, directly or anonymously, by writing out your question for the hosts to read out. Or, if you prefer, you can just sit back and take it all in.

We will close the circle with an open sharing where everyone will have the opportunity to express their takeaways an highlights and thank our guest speakers.

Who is this for…….

Whether you are single or in a relationship, you will gain from this intimate conversation, the questions will cover many different scenarios. Come with your partner, come alone, or bring a friend.

Men’s bios

Duncan Burns

My name is Duncan Burns and from the age of 15, I first start suffering with depression, first drug addiction and suicidal ideology.

At the age of 20 I was involved with an outlaw gang. Over the next 9 years I had multiple drug addictions and faced death many times, culminating in me being shot dead and brought back at the age of 29, just after the birth of my first child and was diagnosed with chronic PTSD and severe depression, after leaving that lifestyle.

I then worked in the mines for 7 years, burying my head in work and raising my 2 daughters and choosing not to work on my mental health issues and healing myself, which ended up with me being addicted to ‘ice’ for 3-4 years and the breakdown of the relationship with the mother of my girls. This relationship ended up being very toxic, due to both side not dealing with our issues and became physically violent at the end as well.

I lived in my car for 4 months at this stage and pretty much attempted suicide twice. This is when I started reading self help books and fasting and cold water therapy.

I became a youth worker and I met the mother of my son soon after and once again this relationship turned extremely toxic due to both parties having mental health issues and not working on ourselves. When the break up of this relationship started, I became involved with men’s work and have been involved with men’s circles for the last 3-4 years and now co-facilitate them with Danny Redbard.

Also in this time I have worked with disengaged youth and ex-gang members transitioning out of that lifestyle and jail and supporting them to transform their lives.

I am also working with men and women through my 8 week program, to empower them to create change within their life.
I have a diploma of community services and a qualified NLP practitioner.

“The honesty and vulnerability the men showed and shared with their stories was really touching and to gain an understanding that their insecurities are not so different to my own, which is something I didn’t give enough thought to in the past. Their need to feel safe was a really impactful statement for me.”

“I loved the circle ‘Understanding the masculine’. Hearing the men share openly, generously and courageously was in itself a balm for my heart. A relief, softening and turn on for my woman. It was amazing to be in a conversation that touched on some edgy topics very rarely addressed so openly between men and women. Topics that are fundamental to relating in a good, healthy way. It released some of my discomfort and fears around giving voice to these topics when I relate with a man. I got to hear specifics around what men want and need, their fears and desires. By the end of the circle, I felt peace, hope and great love. Thank you Cine and each man present.”

“I absolutely loved this container to explore deeply all the judgements and preconceived ideas I have about the masculine due to poor interactions in the past. Cine guided the conversation in such a beautiful balance that allowed the men to fully show up in openness and vulnerability and that also allowed me to go there with them. Deep gratitude to you all!”

“Hi Cine and beautiful men who co-created a beautiful healing container for me to feel deeply touched and heart-opened. Thank you everyone for showing up. I truly loved the experience.”

“My takeaway is to be courageous and stand in my truth and authenticity when connecting with men. And that also life is equally as hard to navigate as a man. Being more open and understanding of the wounds that men can also hold. I really want to thank all the men for being their beautiful selves and sharing themselves tonight! And thank you Cine for inviting me to join tonight!”
