It was a wonderful weekend. I could tell there was a lot of thought and planning that went into the weekend. You definitely created a sacred space that had good boundaries, but that also let us explore.

On Spirit Journeys' calendar is a new workshop titled Finding Love: A Path To Satisfaction. This workshop is being held at the Bodhi Manda Zen Center in Jemez Springs, New Mexico from August 15-18, 2012.
Designed for those that are you ready to release the fear, shame, doubt, or grief that keep them from finding love and letting it in, this workshop will explore the things that keep participants from having a fulfilling and lasting relationship with another man. The goal is to unlock minds and hearts and allow attendees to love and to be loved.
This workshop is open to both single gay men as well as couples; any man that is looking to improve their capacities to love and to be loved is welcome.
This workshop will explore such things as:
Seeing and Dissolving the Habits that Sabotage Love
Keeping The "Fire" Alive In A Relationship
Taking the “Hard Work” out of Relationship
Creating Trust, Acceptance, and Intimacy
Becoming We: What It Means To Be A Couple
Balancing “I” and “We”
Overcoming Fear and Growing Into Unconditional Love
Kindling the Fires of Passion Without Getting Burnt
The Passionate Arts of Erotic Touch and Sensual Living
The time at the workshop will be exploratory, experiential and inspirational; looking deeply to uncover the stories and wounds that keep men from living a free and joyous life. Participants will see through these stories and bring love to these wounds, freeing themselves to be their authentic self. The freer men are the more open they are to others and the easier love can find its way into their. And nothing is sexier or more lovable than authenticity!
The daily schedule incorporates a balance of group sessions and leisure time. Movement exercises, erotic touch, breathwork, visualizations, discussions, journaling, personal contemplation and group sharing are just some of the activities offered during the workshop.
No previous experience is necessary for any of the activities planned. Instruction, guidance and support by qualified facilitators are provided throughout the workshop.
Plan to come with an openness and enthusiasm to fully participate in the group activities as this is vital to the workshop process and the evolution of community. Most gay men rarely have a chance to be in the company of other gay men in a setting that lacks pretense and superficiality. One comment that is frequently heard during Spirit Journeys' events is "I can't believe how comfortable and close I feel among a group of gay men that I just met." The foundation of all of Spirit Journeys' retreats and workshops is a remarkable experience of intimacy, trust, nurturing, and honest communication which unfolds among the participants.
During these weekends, participants will learn the basics of yoga and breathing practices. Using a step by step, practical approach, integration of the essential elements of tantric sexual techniques will also be taught. Some of the benefits of learning to channel erotic energy are unlocking creativity, transformation of sexual experiences and significantly altering many other aspects of life.
Spirit Journeys Mission:
To create opportunities for participants to grow mentally, emotionally and spiritually; to create environments where they can feel safe enough to "step outside of their box" and move towards living a freer, more joyous life.
