Antra Kalnins Borofsky
Antra Kalnins Borofsky is a master teacher in the art of intimacy. She is the cofounder and codirector—with her husband, Richard Borofsky—of the Center for the Study of Relationship in Cambridge, Massachusetts, which provides therapy and workshops for couples and individuals on the practice of relationship. Antra and Richard’s loving presence, clarity, compassion, and lively humor are the fruit of being together as a couple since 1970 and working as couples’ therapists. Their special gift is their ability to authentically embody what they are teaching.
Antra received her graduate degree from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and has been a Gestalt therapist and marriage and family therapist in private practice since 1977. In addition to her work with couples, she is a personal coach for business professionals and has led numerous retreats for CEOs who are members of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO).
Together with her husband Richard, Antra has presented at numerous graduate schools, including Harvard Medical School and Boston University. They have also given workshops for religious organizations, including the Unitarian Universalist Association and Tibetan Buddhist Shambala centers, and have led workshops in both business and public education settings. In 1995, Boston magazine gave them the Best of Boston award for their work with couples.
The Borofskys are a contributing authors to On Intimate Ground: A Gestalt Approach to Working With Couples and read love poems on the CD Joyful Wedding: A Spiritual Path to the Altar.
