A SAMPLING OF ISSUES COVERED IN RAPHAEL ARON’S LECTURES AND WORKSHOPS
I am uncomfortable with G-d telling me how to conduct my intimate life. I have no problems with Kashrus, Tefillah, Chinuch etc but not a proscriptive rule book about intimacy.
We seem to learn/teach so much about cycles, Mikveh etc. What about actual conduct between husband and wife. How are we supposed to know what to do?
All the advertisements and books make out that Mikveh night is an awesome experience. What if he/she are just not in the mood?
Is romance risqué? Isn't it really somewhat un-Chassidish to behave romantically?
Is it really possible to combine intimacy and spirituality?
Intimacy is becoming more of a ritual than an experience. What do we do?
At what point should a couple seek advice regarding their intimacy?
