Global Glue Project brings the wisdom of real couples together with leading relationship experts in two unique formats: Glue Talks & Glue Groups.
Glue Talks are one-time events where a relationship topic or modality is framed by Glue Films and the speakers that speak to the topic. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and interact with the speakers.
Glue Groups are typically 6 week programs with a limited capacity that create intimate spaces for couples to dive deeper into the conversation, learning and practicing the tools inspired by real couples and honed by relationship experts.
Browse events below.
Glue Talks are community conversations and Global Glue film screenings about relationships, pairing the knowledge of the experts with the wisdom of real couples.
Intimacy: Appreciating the Love We Have.
What if we are already fully intimate with ourselves, with our partners, and with life. But our experience of intimacy is intense, complex, never resolvable, and always has qualities which we like and dislike. When we refuse to fully participate in this complexity, we’re left with the feeling that something’s missing. Can we appreciate the whole mess of being human, and include what is most disturbing in our experience of love? We will approach our experience of intimacy as path, paralleling the 3 yanas of Buddhism: personal responsibility as the foundation, extending into unconditional kindness, with an immediate embodied “yes” to everything that arises in our experience of love. All are welcome.
Glue Talks are inspirational evenings bringing together Global Glue Project films of real couples sharing their hearts and souls; educational talks by relationship experts; and community conversations about sticking together. This talk will include surprise guests testing their knowledge about their partners in a "Not So Newlywed Game."
