    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

    • Friday evening (7 pm to 10 pm); All day Saturday and all day Sunday (9 am to 6:30 pm)

    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

    Power, Surrender and Intimacy (PSI) brings Body Electric's commitment to ethical and intentional erotic play into realms of intense body sensation and sexual power dynamics.  In a safe space with guided facilitation, you learn about expressing intentional physicality in a communal brotherhood. Along with erotic touch, you will learn about creating conscious intentions, identifying and asking for what you want, and practicing exquisite attention.  Methods used include spanking, bondage, flogging and other practices of high body stimulation, as well as reclaiming and examining masculine icons.

    WHAT'S POSSIBLE

    • Expanding the foundations you learned in Celebrating the Body Erotic to explore your body’s capacity for elevated levels of sensation, with additional modalities practiced in kink play
    • Refining your skills for creating intention, exploring eroticism, and asking for what you want
    • Exploring new erotic possibilities within the human/divine energies of power and surrender 
    • Applying these modalities for personal healing, empowerment, spiritual growth, and expanded ife experience
    • Examining anew the meanings and myths of masculinity in culture and your life  

    This workshop is designed for all interested men, whether you are curious but inexperienced, or if you already have knowledge or skill in these areas. 

    DURATION               2.5 days

    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 men of color 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? 

    To make this workshop available to as many men as possible, special funds are available to offset the cost of full tuition. We do not want finances to be a reason not to attend! The full cost of the workshop is the same as our usual non-residential Celebrating the Body Erotic: $495.

    If you are unable to pay that amount, we have two other price points available:  $245 or $95.    When registering, choose the amount that works for you.  Additionally, supplementary funds are available to subsidise the reduced workshop fee.  If you have any questions or need more information about pricing, please speak with the workshop coordinator Andre

    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.

    Are you curious about the power of erotic energy?

    Would you like to be more skillful and confident in your exploration of pleasure?


    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.


    Here's a few things that past participants have said:


    "I would like to express to people the naturalness of the activities. I would want to stress the importance of consent in this workshop and to not be hesitant to try this."


    "Step in without expectations. Allow your nervous energy to inform you. So often we are told how to be erotic, so the opportunity to allow our eroticism without pressure or results can be quite scary. It's a new way to play with our energy body without a lot of talking! Out of head and back into the body."


    "This experience reacquainted me with my innocence. There is something so sweet about erotic energy as a non sexual experience. It creates a new pathway for pleasure without the pressure of performance or results!"


    "I felt like everything was explained with respect, kindness and knowledge. I loved the focus on consent, I've never really considered it in that way but it felt right in my soul and profoundly changed me in ways I'm still discovering a week later."


    "As a trauma survivor I found this workshop extremely helpful. Having just left about 10 weeks of intensive group therapy this workshop felt like a natural progression towards understanding personal consent in a safe atmosphere."


    Doors open at 12:45 PM

    Event starts at 1:00 PM


    We are committed to starting on time, please aim to arrive early so as to have time to check in.

    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.
