Hi! My name is Nicole Yvette Prado, creator of Core Intimacy.
Welcome!

Core Intimacy is a unique path of self-discovery, awakening, healing and empowerment – that is done through the body – that will enable you to live deeply fulfilling love, sex and couple relationships.

What is Core Intimacy?

Most of us experience difficulties with love, sex and couple relationships. Sometimes the difficulty is due to a one time issue, but quite often we experience recurring difficulties that leave us feeling frustrated, defective and scared…and not knowing what to do in order to change our situation, but willing to try any kind of advice, formula or new technique.

More than twenty years of professional experience, combined with my own personal trajectory, have shown me that in order to live truly healthy, fulfilling and satisfying love, sex and couple relationships you must do something radically different. In fact, it´s more like NOT doing something. I learned that deep tranformation and healing occurs much more often when done through a gentle, organic, self-regulated somatic – body based – process.

Core Intimacy begins with something so fundamental, and yet so challenging, as changing how you feel about yourself. As your relationship with yourself changes and becomes more accepting, respectful, tolerant and compassionate, the way you relate to others will reflect the change. How you experience love, sex and couple relationships will also undergo a profound transformation. How you relate to just about everything – including the earth that is our home – will change for the better. Plus, you will feel fully, vibrantly alive and present in life.

However, transforming how you feel about yourself deep down inside is a very tricky thing to do. You can´ t just make it happen because you want to and it´ s not a matter of learning something else. Trust me- this kind of change does not happen overnight, no matter how many people may try to convince you otherwise. It´ s why I prefer to call it a path.

And it´ s also the reason I created Core Intimacy: in order to help make the path easier for YOU.

 

For the time being, most of the Core Intimacy processes I facilitate are oriented towards women and couples, with the exception of the one-to-one processes that are focused on personal issues and which are open to all adults, regardless of  relationship status, gender or sexual orientation.

HOW CAN I LEARN CORE INTIMACY?

grupos-intimidad-esencial

IN A GROUP

Introductory Workshops/Retreats/Nine Month Course

I am very familiar with the extraordinary alchemy that takes place when transformational processes are done in a group context. This is the main reason why I´ ve created different contexts in which you can learn “Core Intimacy for Women” within a group. 

You can choose between one- or two-day introductory workshops, four to seven day residential retreats in nature or a comprehensive immersion in a nine-month course. 

individual-intimidad-esencial

ONE-TO-ONE

Online or in person processes

In some cases, the best, or even the only way to do a transformational process is one-to-one, so I´ m giving you the option of doing one-to-one sessions with me, either in person or online.

You can choose the one-to-one format whether you´ re in the midst of some kind of personal crisis and would like my professional assistance, or if you prefer to learn “Core Intimacy for Women” on your own, with my guidance.

pareja-intimidad-esencial

COUPLES

Online or in person processes

I work with couples that are going through a crisis and need guidance.

I always  focus the process towards exploring where the roots of your conflicts are and making changes that will heal, update and reaffirm your bond.

TESTIMONIALS

A change in my self-esteem

The course I did with Nicole was very enriching because it contributed towards a real change in my sense of self-worth. I started to know myself and began to treat myself with much more respect. How I relate to my family also changed deeply. I discovered what my limits are and how to set them. I learned to manage my anger, sadness, pain, guilt etc. and realized their sources. I also found a relaxation method that really works for me.

I started living my sexuality in a different way

I did a nine-month course with Nicole many years ago, and though it may sound like a cliché, the truth is that I started to live my sexuality in a different way. I met other wonderful women, all very different, and yet – deep down we were all very much alike. This opened my eyes in many ways, and I discovered a world unbeknownst to me until then. However, all that wouldn’t have been nearly as significant without Nicole´s immense, and probably unique, touch. She knows how to integrate the body into the spiritual and into meditation. The way we went through the different parts of the course…enrichening and with absolute delicacy. It´s not easy to explain, but when you´ve experienced it, you´ll know what I mean. And above all, she is a fabulous person, a unique and original being. I am deeply grateful.

Healing a wound from the past

My experience with Nicole was revealing. I contacted her thanks to a friend of mine because I was lost; I wasn´t sure what was the matter, but I knew that I wanted to change. Foolish me, I thought my process was going to be focused on my career. After our first session, and with a bunch of questionnaires to answer to help me figure out what I really wanted to do career-wise, which I never completed, the true reason why I had to meet and work with her showed up. She helped me heal a deep wound from my past, to understand why my my parents are the way they are and what parts of them are in me. I finally able to understand, accept and love them just as they are. I also was able to finally accept a past relationship that wasn´t precisely satisfying, to close that chapter of my life in the best possible way, to forgive myself for being who I was then and to learn not to be her anymore. Thanks to her workshops on intimacy I learned to express my feelings, to communicate ecologically and never loose my voice again. I had kept silent for a long time, I wasn´t me, I didn´t express myself and I wasn´t free. She was there for me during the entire process, she taught me, she helped me see and nobody can ever take away from me what I learned. I started feeling happy; I hadn´t felt happy in a long, long time. But perhaps the most important thing I learned was to love myself and not depend on external sources to feel good about myself. In case I´ve never said this to you: Thank you Nicole.

I experienced true connection with her

Before I did therapy with Nicole, I´d worked with other professionals who used different approaches. I always got something out of those processes. But with Nicole I experienced true connection: a blend of tenderness, complicity, honesty, pragmatism and trust…all in the right measure during each of my crises, my moments of joy or in my spaces of serenity.

A turning point in my life

In 2013 my path crossed Nicole´s. She taught a 6-month course that had intensive, monthly sessions, and ever since then I always say that doing that course was a turning point in my life.She opened up the door to “the transpersonal” for me, helped me connect with myself, she accompanied me in a process of deep self-acknowledgement, bringing out into the light certain shadows, becoming aware of my acquired patterns and providing me with tools to use in my every day living so that I could live my life more fully. After completing that course, I did some of her other workshops and they´ve allowed me to deepen the re-union with myself. I will always be grateful to her such a valuable treasure.


Thank you, thank you, thank you. Namasté.
