What Is Intimacy… and Do You Want More?

What is Intimacy? Intimacy is the future. The more savvy and connected we can be with that, the more we can create businesses and relationships that reflect where we are headed in human consciousness: out of the ME space and into the WE space.

Sage Hobbs’s Power Boost this month teaches us about the tools and skills for communicating in a way that creates more intimacy. In this Circle Up, let’s get real about what may still be holding you back.

Intimacy all starts with ourselves. We can deepen our own connection with ourselves by using a one of our superpowers: self-compassion. Intimacy happens when we can be clear about our desires, and accept them lovingly instead of rejecting them. That’s self-intimacy, and it strengthens our ability to be intimate with others.

Whether you’re looking for a life partner, wanting to be closer to the people in your community, seeking a power posse to hold you, or thinking about family members you’d like to go deeper with, intimacy is the key. So let’s get brave and dive into it together!

Chantal Pierrat

Founder & CEO of Emerging Women

Circle Up Leader

Emerging Women was launched in order to support the integration of business and feminine power to make a positive impact on the world. As a world traveller and Peace Corps volunteer, Chantal Pierrat witnessed first-hand the severe oppression and disempowerment of women that is present in most third-world countries across the globe. And as a sales and marketing executive in medical technology and manufacturing, she experienced the challenges and difficulties modern women face in the first-world business arena. Though the environments were quite different, the effects on women were similar: work more, get rewarded less, and feel insecure as we try to fit into a world created by and for men.

After 11 years as a publishing executive in the area of personal growth, holistic living and spirituality, Chantal combined her passion for women’s leadership, inner transformation, and making the world a better place by launching Emerging Women with the first-annual event in October 2013. Since then, speakers such as Arianna Huffington, Dr. Brené Brown, Dr. Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Dr. Tererai Trent, Kristin Neff, PhD, Esther Perel, Kelly McGonigal, PhD, Zainab Salbi, Reshma Saujani, Anne Lamott, and others women from businesses in all industries have come together to discuss the issues facing women entrepreneurs and leaders today.
