Learn the Art of Loving and gain more confidence in yourself as an intimate parter. Forge a relationship with your spouse filled with mutual pleasure and genuine connection.
This course explores elements of LDS culture that undermine male sexual integrity and confidence while underscoring theological principles that support embodied desire and loving sex.
The Art of Loving Course will be available to ALL in the Winter of 2021. I will be teaching two Art of Loving courses this Fall (2020), but restricting enrollment to 35 men in each group. To be eligible for these Fall online courses (via Webex, beginning September 19th for group 1 and September 25th for group 2), you must have taken at least one of our online courses already. To demonstrate interest, please use the link above to add your email to the notification list. We will send you an email with costs and enrollment details, if there is room for you in the course.
Join the Art of Loving course, designed for LDS men, to become more confident in yourself as an intimate partner. This course unpacks the damaging messages offered to men about masculinity and sexuality that work against sexual self-confidence, trustworthiness, and mutual desire.
The Fall 2020 course group 1 will take place September 19, Oct 3, Oct 10, Oct 24, Nov 7, Nov 14, Nov 21, Dec 5 at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time via Webex. Each class will last between 75 and 120 minutes. The classes will be recorded, but not distributed to participants. If an attendee has to miss a class or two they can contact us to gain temporary access to the recorded missed class.

This course is perfect for those who are:
- Unsatisfied in their current sexual and
- Frustrated in the loneliness of not being desired.
- Struggling with pornography use.
- Confused about the compatibility of
sex and masculinity with spirituality and goodness.
- Wanting more confidence in their own desirability.
- Hoping to be at greater peace with their sexuality.
By committing to this course, and working through its concepts, you can address your role in unsatisfying sexual interactions, change sexual behaviors at odds with your integrity, and grow into a more desirable, confident sexual partner.
After years of counseling men and women, Dr. Finlayson-Fife has uncovered the beliefs that work against men's capacity for intimate sex, as well as the concepts and behaviors that foster personal strength, trustworthiness, and deeper capacity for sexual connection.
By working through the life-changing concepts in the Art of Loving course, not only will you be a source of strength to your emotional and sexual relationship, but you will experience deeper peace with yourself and your sexuality.
