About the event
Can couples bond through bliss? Can MDMA and other such medicines help imbue a relationship with the strength that’s needed to get through the hard times? As the “chemical of connection,” MDMA can offer couples a visceral experience of their “we-ness,” and help them rekindle the kind of love that brought them together in the first place.
The inevitable complaints and resentments that can plague a couple are put into perspective when the container for the relationship is one of joy, play and profound connection. Charley Wininger, joined by his wife Shelley, will describe how the skillful use of MDMA for both healing and pleasure, especially over time, can have a cumulative effect that can help a couple build a sustainable bond.
