When I started my company over 2 years ago it was with the intention to create new and alternative spaces for queer men. Then Covid hit. Since beginning, I have worked with dozens of men in private 1:1 formats, & while I will continue to work in this way, I am exited to finally offer my work in a group setting.
So many of us over the last decade, have shed the constrictions of sex equaling the possibility of death. From that great constriction, has been an extraordinary expansion of sexual freedom that has been like feeding a famine, that at times has felt unquenchable. Some of us, still feel safest in the shadows of anonymous sex, while others dance their sexual liberation on the dance floor. You may have seen me there, and you will continue to, because these unique spaces have created a much needed watering hole for us to come together: celebrate, be seen, express, cry, dance and find love. Hookups and casual encounters have often been a huge part of our expression of sexual liberation and in that freedom we often bypass something very precious - the ability to find intimacy in connected sexuality. While honoring our lineage and honoring theses spaces, that have held us so tightly, I'd like to invite you to create something new with me for all gay men.
This is my invitation:
I'm offering, for the first time, a non residential three day experience, designed to give men (gay, queer, bi-sexual, and trans men) the opportunity to connect with the deeper centers of pleasure in their own bodies. Through movement, sound, breathing and touch, men can access and sustain full-body erotic pleasure with themselves and with a partner. This workshop invites each man into an exploration of all the varied states of erotic energy through playful, fun, safe and sacred spaces. It's in this embodied space that supports men to find their own way into a deeper relationship with their emotions and their desires. This is an invitation to think past the patterns of gay sexuality. You have the opportunity to share in a non judgmental space your experiences as a gay man in this evolving culture of gay acceptance and non acceptance -- and we will process how being alive in this time has shaped our relationship to our bodies and our sexuality. By the end of the weekend will learn how to give and receive through a sacred, intimate and even playful lens. There will be opportunities for trauma release and exploring the concept of full body orgasm. All of this in an atmosphere that supports each man to explore his own vulnerability and capacity for pleasure.
Join me, alongside some extraordinary teachers, to discover more about your body's capacity for pleasure, what it means to be in conscious community, and how to call the erotic into all aspects of your life.
If you are interested in learning more and applying for a spot --- please email me for an exploratory call and interview.
Space is limited due to the intimate nature of this work. Vaccinations and Covid testing are required due to the nature of the world we now live in.
