“We're walking contradictions. We ask our partners for safety and predictability while also expecting adventure and excitement.”
– Esther Perel
Relationships are going through a complex cultural shift. Expectations placed on intimate partnerships are at an all-time high, but we lack the tools and resources to reach this new Olympus.
1440 Multiversity welcomes iconic couples therapist Esther Perel for a provocative talk exploring the state of modern love, with an audience Q&A and book signing to follow.
Join Esther Perel as she shines light on:
-the state of modern love
-the importance of erotic intelligence
-how listening to the stories of others helps us navigate our own relationships.
