I am pleased to offer a continuation and expansion of my work in this three-day, non-residential experience, designed to give men (gay, queer, bi-sexual, and trans men) the opportunity to learn how to engage in conversation through the nuance of conscious touch, all while fostering our growing collective community.
The CONNECT workshops have been a palpable and growth-ful way for men to experience connection through erotic, nurturing, and playful lenses. In continuing to expand upon my work and how to take the foundations offered in CONNECT to another level, I have created TOUCH, to be able to offer men more opportunity to hone touch skills, while deepening the understanding of how breath, movement, sound, and language can heighten our erotic and relational experiences.
I am again offering 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/or 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 queer sexuality. You have the opportunity to share in a non judgmental space your experiences as a man in this evolving culture of queer acceptance and non acceptance. We will process how being alive in this time has shaped our relationship to our bodies and our sexuality. 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, learn how to be more of an Active Receiver and an Adaptive Giver. Sink into what it means to be in conscious community, and how to call the erotic into all aspects of your life.
