Communication Workshop: the Art of Connection

How to communicate with your partner and express your emotions



2 hours Class size 12 to 40     label $50

Are you ready to experience more fulfilling relationships, with yourself and others? Do you desire an openness for deep, desirable, loving, and intimate connection?

This workshop will help you transform old and damaging communication patterns. You will learn how to identify triggers, how to discover what your underlying needs are and how to communicate these in a non-confrontational way to another. This workshop will completely transform how you relate to others and will bring you a whole new level of awareness to your life.

Deep inside us all, we want a meaningful connection with ourselves and others. We all want to feel loved, accepted and have a sense of belonging. Unconscious patterns, fears, beliefs, behaviours, and assumptions can deeply impact our lives, often in very unhelpful ways. These patterns can be triggered in relationships, and we often find ourselves repeating these unconscious patterns, reacting to people with frustration, anger, withdrawing and shutting down.

Listening to our emotions is the first step in recognising these patterns – rather than letting them run our lives. It is the difference between having emotion and them having us. Emotion gives us information, alerting us towards our underlying needs, like safety, connection, autonomy, and respect. When our needs are unmet we feel unpleasant emotions and when our needs are being met, we start to feel more pleasant emotions.

Sadly, our modern society encourages us to ignore or repress our emotions. We overvalue rational thinking by living in a head centric world, developing fear and resistance toward our emotions. We instead, numb and distract ourselves, or react to what we are feeling, rather than listening to the information they give us.

This workshop is for you if you:

  •  Want to engage in a fulfilling relationship with your partner, family, friends, and colleagues.
  •  Don’t feel heard and understood by others.
  •  Have been hurt by a past relationship and want to heal the wounds.
  •  Want to find a meaningful relationship.
  •  Feel disconnected from yourself and/or others.
  •  Experience conflict in your relationships, that never seem to fully resolve.
  •  Experience continuing cycles and patterns in relationships and can’t see why.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to be in a romantic relationship to benefit from it this workshop?

Absolutely not! Good relationships start by having more intimacy and love with ourselves. Marriage begins with the marriage we have within us. Only then can we relate in authentic, loving ways with others. This workshop will definitely help you in your relationships with others but is also perfect for singles, and people of all relationship structures and orientations. This workshop is open to everyone, including queer and non-binary.

Can I bring my partner?

Yes, you can! It’s beautiful to experience this workshop with your partner, you will have tools to connect deeper and you will connect even deeper and grow together. What if my partner doesn’t want to come along? You can come by yourself. You will be given tools to connect deeper with your being and learn ways to communicate and connect with others.

What is Tantra really about?

It’s a spiritual path that embraces life how it is, with the light, the shadow and the challenges… Everything is sacred and everything is an opportunity to evolve! In Tantra, life is a teacher itself. It’s about cultivating deep awareness in every moment, using any experience to deepening the connection with yourself and the One. Read more about Tantra here.

Why do we need to tune into our emotions?

Emotions are signals that give us information about our needs. It’s important to feel and be connected with them. Listening to our emotions is the first step in recognising unconscious patterns – rather than letting them run our lives.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.


What you'll get
  • Practical tools to listen to your emotions and recognise your unmet needs, particularly when you have conflict with others.
  • A safe space to open your emotions.

What to bring
  • A notepad and pen.
  •  Your partner a friend or just your beautiful self, and a willingness to open and grow. You might want to bring a notebook, comfortable cushion and wear comfortable clothing.

Elisa is such a great teacher and has a lot of great insights. I learnt a lot about my triggers/communication style from this class and how to better communicate my needs. Looking forward to taking another workshop from her!

Elisa’s powerful teachings were communicated in an engaging and effective way, even while on zoom instead of in person. I recommend highly and will sign up for as many of her workshops as I can.

The teacher and content were very good. I felt the class was too short though - the content really needed more time.

Jacinta Feb 2020


Small, intricate and safe environment to learn and discover. I went with my partner and we really enjoyed it and have taken a lot away.
Thank you so much!
