For me - (I'll ask her and post her response separately or MAYBE she will !) intimacy is a feeling of being fully present and largely transparent. It's hard to describe.....
It's that feeling of connection I guess many people refer to - that I'm no longer separate but just a part of something larger. For me it happens both in and out of the context of a relationship or any other human. It can happen spontaneously, the trigger coming from almost anywhere (often unknown). When it comes I just try to accept it without 'clinging' to it. It's not 'mine' - it does not 'belong' to me !
Hard to describe.............
