    The Body Electric School, one of the most trusted names in embodiment education, is now offering this three hour, fully clothed introduction to the realm of conscious eroticism. In this three hour workshop, we will first establish a solid container of consent and boundaries, and then use specific breath, touch and movement practices to create a permission field for learning and exploration. This work is appropriate for singles, couples, transgender people, young people, seniors, trauma survivors, and anyone who feels called to go deeper into a journey of personal growth. The workshop will be facilitated by Sarah Belzile.

    DESCRIPTION

    This workshop is an introduction to the teachings of Tantra.  In a safe and facilitated space, you will explore the principles and tools available to live a life with greater freedom, creativity, and passion. The workshop involves "experiments" to practice erotic touch, conscious breath, movement, and meditation, supplemented with lecture and discussion.  The goal is to help you feel and acknowledge your desires, identify and play with erotic habits, and explore the remarkable healing power of pleasure.

    WHAT'S POSSIBLE

    • Exploring some fundamental principles of Tantra, and how they can benefit your life
    • Engaging with Tantric concepts in the context of embodiment 
    • Learning to maintain and expand practices and activities of Tantra following the workshop

    This workshop is a hands-on and often clothes-off experience, open to you if you are willing to explore your relationship to desire and pleasure in a more conscious way in a community of like-minded journeyers. Celebrating the Body Erotic is not a pre-requisite for this workshop.  

    DURATION

    • Residential:  2 days plus opening evening  

    FREQUENTLY-ASKED QUESTION

    Should I take Celebrating the Body Erotic or Tantra 1 as my first workshop?

    Celebrating the Body Erotic and Tantra 1 are similar in that they both draw on ancient beliefs and practices regarding the innate wisdom of the erotic body and both affirm a body-positive, holistic approach to personal growth and healing.  Both allow for a deeper integration of body and spirit.    Celebrating the Body Erotic is a more structured program, carefully designed from start to finish, that builds cumulatively over the weekend.  It is a necessary pre-requisite for almost all other Body Electric men's programs, with the exception of Tantra 2 and Tantra 3.  Tantra 1 is a bit less structured in design. It offers a hands-on introduction to, and experience with, one of the prominent traditional lineages of Tantric philosophy.

    DESCRIPTION

    Having completed Celebrating the Body Erotic, Celebrating the Body Erotic 2 expands the same core principles of safe, respectful erotic exploration to anal touch.   Here, the focus is on discovering the wisdom of the anus, the exquisite care it warrants, and the profound healing it can offer.  In this workshop you discover deeper realms of embodied pleasure and healing.  Exercises include prostate massage, breathwork, erotic spanking, and other techniques that highlight the many sensations of this rich region of the human body.

    WHAT'S POSSIBLE 

    • Learning to give and receive exquisite massage that wakes up the entire anal region
    • Cultivating an ability for deeper listening to the body through the more subtle senses
    • Expanding your potential for anal pleasure and receiving and offering skillful touch

    This is a clothes-off workshop and is for you if you are ready to expand the skills you developed in the introductory workshop, and wanting to develop new levels of intimacy and erotic expression, both within yourself and within a community of men.

    DESCRIPTION

    Celebrating the Body Erotic: A Workshop for Women is one of the signature experiences of the New Body Electric School. Join us to explore your erotic potential that might lay dormant or constrained within you by old wounding and beliefs. Conscious breathing, moving, consensual touch and massage will teach you how to both give and receive pleasure. This workshop focuses on your entire being and is conducted in a setting that is playful, consensual, and honoring of everyone's individuality while at the same time learning how to navigate erotic energy in a community of women. We will learn together how to open the creative flow of life through body, heart, mind and spirit.

    Completion of any Celebrating the Body Erotic Workshop is a prerequisite for attending most other weekend workshops, intensive programs, and other retreats offered by the New Body Electric School.

    *The specific structures and instruction in this workshop are designed for cis women, meaning people who identify as a woman and who have a yoni (vulva). We offer other workshops with instruction for people of all genders and genitalia; please see the "all genders" offerings. 

    WHAT'S POSSIBLE

    Participating in "Celebrating the Body Erotic" may give you:

    • Greater acceptance and agency of yourself as an erotic being, physically, mentally and emotionally.
    • Discovery about how to develop a more satisfying erotic relationship with yourself and others.
    • Deeper awareness of spiritual dimensions in your erotic life and awareness of erotic energy as transpersonal and a way to come close to the mystery of life
    • An experience of play and fun while healing inner contractions of shame about your erotic self

    Celebrating the Body Erotic contains clothing optional components and is for you if you are ready to vigorously explore new levels of your erotic possibilities within a community of women. Our workshop space is created under the guidance of experienced facilitators and assistants who serve you and hold you in a safer container for exploration and learning.

    DESCRIPTION

    The Body Electric School invites you to join a temporary community of diverse erotic explorers and students. If you feel curious about the erotic presence and expression of genders other then your own and if you wish to stretch your own erotic repertoire, this ceremonial workshop is for you! 

    We establish a ‘temple’, a safe container, at the beginning of our time together. In this time and space you can learn to stretch yourself in ways that is unique to this gathering, tender, precious and fun! 

    Through embodied learning you will discover that while you deepen and celebrate your own erotic nature, your heart will open to others in their uniqueness and you might discover your delight in the similarities we share! 

    Everyone is welcome to experiment with erotic energy together.  This temple is a place where we can dance and touch those we might habitually be afraid of. This is a safe place to learn how to open to each other playfully and with passionate presence. 

    We will connect and discover ourselves through conscious movements, breath exercises, consensual touch, massage and healing conversations. We honour each others’ choices, we court the gates of tension to let go. We witness and affirm each other’s unique nature by learning how to remain present and grounded in the face of diversity.  This time and space is devoted to learning through pleasure and honour all feelings as they emerge from the depth of the body. 

    Throughout the workshop you will be guided and assisted by experienced facilitators and assistants and by the generosity of spirit of all present. Participants will learn much through one another and return to their lives enriched and inspired. It is possible to connect to a larger network of erotic explorers through the Body Electric School’s wide reaching web. 

    Some Participants return repeatedly to Celebrating the Body Erotic for All Genders because each circle’s nature is shaped anew and offers different perspectives inside and out. 

    WHAT'S POSSIBLE

    As a participant you may:

    • Gain greater acceptance and agency of yourself as an erotic being, physically, mentally and emotionally.
    • Discover ways to develop a more satisfying erotic relationship with yourself and others.
    • Become more aware of spiritual dimensions in your erotic explorations.
    • Experience awareness of Eros as transpersonal.

    DESCRIPTION

    Celebrating the Body Erotic (CBE) for Men of Color is the first-ever offering of Body Electric's classic introductory weekend workshop, Celebrating the Body Erotic, this time exclusively for self-identified men of color. Learn more about the Celebrating the Body Erotic: A Workshop for Men.

    Why is Body Electric offering Celebrating the Body Erotic for Men of Color?

    Of course, all adult men are welcome to attend any Body Electric workshop, regardless of age, ethnicity, self-label, or cultural background. All that's ever been required is an open-hearted interest in a structured weekend program that involves touch, nudity, and hands-on exploration of male-male erotic energy. Yet, typically most of our workshop participants are white men. No doubt there are several reasons for this -- organizational, cultural, personal. We are committed to changing that. In recent conversations with several men of color who are familiar with Body Electric (and who love and believe in what we do), it's become clear that for some men, creating a workshop community with other black- and brown-skinned men would be the most rewarding and powerful way to experience this work.

    Is this the same as the traditional Celebrating the Body Erotic workshop?

    The CBE for Men of Color will be mostly the same as our usual CBE. It will follow the same rhythms and format -- a strong mix of rituals that include words, movement, breath, intention, music, and giving and receiving touch, all in a setting where personal safety and interpersonal respect are paramount. At the same time, we will include new opportunities to explore being together in an erotic community with other men of color.

    Who teaches the workshop?

    The workshop will be facilitated by Steve Schwartzberg, a senior Body Electric facilitator. Our ideal would be to offer this workshop facilitated by a self-identified person of color, but that is not yet possible. To address this, the entire team assisting the workshop will be men of color (every Body Electric workshop has a team of assistants already familiar with the workshop). We are also working with a small advisory council (again, all men of color), to stay true to our vision of wanting this not only to be as powerful and healing as our usual CBE, but also to be as attentive and responsive to the needs of the participants as possible.

    How much does it cost?

    The cost of the workshop is $495 if you register and pay in full prior to Friday, April 3, 2020, or $545 if you pay after that date. Because we want this workshop to be accessible to as many men as possible, ample scholarship funds are available. We do not want finances to be the reason not to attend!

    LOCATION

    When and where?

    The workshop will be held in New York City (downtown Manhattan) Saturday and Sunday, April 18-19, 2020. The workshop runs from 9:00 am - 7:00 pm each day. Participants' attendance is required for the full duration of the workshop. Advance registration is required -- there is no admittance without prior registration.

    MORE INFORMATION

    For more information: Please feel free to contact Andre Martin (coordinator) or Steve Schwartzberg (facilitator) with any questions.

    DESCRIPTION

    Experience an extraordinary week of healing and personal exploration in a supportive community of other like-minded explorers.  In this intensive, you will have the opportunity to dive into your relationship to your body, your heart, and your soul. Your specific life issues, challenges, self-observations, and future wishes serve as guides for your journey.  The unique structure of this intensive centers on twice-daily, personalized, one-on-one sessions with sacred intimates (men trained as erotic healers), in addition to daily communal rituals and activities.

    The range of the work is far reaching yet tailored for your specific needs.  Possible areas of exploration may include interpersonal relationships, a history of sexual abuse or trauma, current erotic frustrations or isolation, impotence, drug or alcohol additions, lookism, ageism, racism, HIV-related concerns, and other challenges. The goal of the week is to clear the way to a joyful life through the healing power of conscious embodiment.  

    WHAT'S POSSIBLE 

    • Facing your current life challenges, patterns,  and experiences in a unique healing environment that welcomes the entire body
    • Healing how your past history and unchallenged present beliefs currently limit your life
    • Working one-on-one with sacred intimates, guides to support you in erotic, spiritual, and emotional healing
    • Living in intentional community with other men who have similarly explored Body Electric and are available for support and brotherhood
    • Deepening your relationship with your body, psyche, and spirit to foster a more fulfilling life of joy and ecstasy

    Participation in this intensive requires writing and submitting a brief email or letter of introduction, including your previous Body Electric experiences, your intentions for the workshop, and expressions of self-awareness about your challenges, wounds, and beliefs.  If you are accepted into the workshop, a more-detailed questionnaire is also necessary for participation.

    DESCRIPTION

    This workshop is an introduction to the teachings of Tantra.  In a safe and facilitated space, you will explore the principles and tools available to live a life with greater freedom, creativity, and passion. The workshop involves "experiments" to practice erotic touch, conscious breath, movement, and meditation, supplemented with lecture and discussion.  The goal is to help you feel and acknowledge your desires, identify and play with erotic habits, and explore the remarkable healing power of pleasure.

    WHAT'S POSSIBLE

    • Exploring some fundamental principles of Tantra, and how they can benefit your life
    • Engaging with Tantric concepts in the context of embodiment 
    • Learning to maintain and expand practices and activities of Tantra following the workshop

    This workshop is a hands-on and often clothes-off experience, open to you if you are willing to explore your relationship to desire and pleasure in a more conscious way in a community of like-minded journeyers. Celebrating the Body Erotic is not a pre-requisite for this workshop.  

    DURATION

    • Non-residential: 3 days 

    FREQUENTLY-ASKED QUESTION

    Should I take Celebrating the Body Erotic or Tantra 1 as my first workshop?

    Celebrating the Body Erotic and Tantra 1 are similar in that they both draw on ancient beliefs and practices regarding the innate wisdom of the erotic body and both affirm a body-positive, holistic approach to personal growth and healing.  Both allow for a deeper integration of body and spirit.    Celebrating the Body Erotic is a more structured program, carefully designed from start to finish, that builds cumulatively over the weekend.  It is a necessary pre-requisite for almost all other Body Electric men's programs, with the exception of Tantra 2 and Tantra 3.  Tantra 1 is a bit less structured in design. It offers a hands-on introduction to, and experience with, one of the prominent traditional lineages of Tantric philosophy.

    POWER, SURRENDER, & INTIMACY for Women-identified persons

    DESCRIPTION

    This workshop creates a safe space for establishing connection, exploring intense body sensation, and expressing intentional physicality.  Along with erotic touch, emphasis is placed on creating conscious intentions, learning how to know and ask for what you want, and practicing exquisite attention. 

    Methods used include spanking, bondage, flogging and other methods of high body stimulation as well as reclaiming erotic icons for ourselves. 

    OBJECTIVES

    In this workshop, you will:

    • Use the foundations you learned in Celebrating the Body Erotic to explore your body’s capacity for elevated levels of sensation, using additional modalities experienced in kink;
    • Practice skills in creating intention, exploring eroticism, and asking for what you want;
    • Consider the possibilities that exist in eroticism in the context of sensation, the divine energy of power, and the human energy of surrender; and
    • Find new ways and approaches to use these modalities for healing, empowerment, and expansion of life experience.

    This workshop is ideal for you whether you have no experience but hold curiosity about the modalities explored in the workshop, or if you have experience or skill in these areas. It is especially beneficial for those seeking to re-examine and explore power dynamics in their lives.
