Perfect and bulletproof are seductive, but they don’t exist in the human experience. We must walk into the arena, wherever it may be–a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family conversation–with courage and the willingness to engage. Rather than sitting on the sidelines and hurling judgment and advice, we must dare to show up and let ourselves be seen. This is vulnerability. – Brene Brown.
Intimacy Solutions was a byproduct, borne out of an on-going experience of moving and existing in NY. The city, the epicenter of constant motion and innovation, has its potential to open doors for people to enter each other’s lives. But the nature and the demands of the city often times makes it challenging to forge wide and deep connections. Many people give up on NY and leave even before their stories can be written. Micro traumas in their professional and personal relationships maybe push factors.
As humans we seek the basic needs of affection, and understanding. But here, ironically we have observed a trend away from intimacy.
Intimacy Solutions’ Vision is to reignite intimacy by bringing together people looking for meaningful connections that are scaffolded upon the foundations of fidelity, vulnerability, Restoration and truth.
Our passion is intimacy building through creative concepts, culture, varying social mediums, philanthropy, and faith. Our aim is to connect people and organizations by providing safe and intimate spaces for people to interact through social networking events, friendship pairing, speed dating, or one-on-one dates.
Borrowing from the field of psychology, a concept known as “psychological safety” — a group culture that the Harvard Business School professor Amy Edmondson defines as a ‘‘shared belief held by members of a team that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking.’’
At our events we strive to create a climate of “Social Psychological Safety” – an awareness and confidence that interactions with perfect strangers will not lead to embarrassment, rejection, manipulation and marginalization. We affirm behaviors that produce positive regard and mutual respect so that people feel safe enough to be themselves in sometimes daunting social settings.
Henceforth, if you are looking for love, to expand your network, or looking to meet genuine people, then join our movement and come meet us at our next event. We will help you make those connections.
Finally, we believe giving forward, through partnerships with charitable organizations. The act of giving is an intimate way to provide a sustainable future for those we love. We want to encourage young and old, from all walks of life, to donate their time, talents, ideas and resources to community organizations. Please join us on this mission.
