CONNECT TO DEEPER RESSOURCES With this one-year training you have the opportunity to commit to a powerful transformation process within a safe and supportive environment. It assists you in creating the life you want while adapting and responding to the accelerating change that is taking place in virtually every aspect of our culture.
EXPLORE PERSONAL; RELATIONAL AND UNIVERSAL EROS Living in contemporary society, we have all been exposed to distorted messages and negative conditioning around sexuality – especially as gay men. Love, connection, sexuality and Eros can open up a very confusing territory. Eros and sexuality, for instance, have become synonymous terms. However, while Eros can be expressed through sexuality, it goes far beyond sex. When our receptivity to life’s breadth and depth increases, we discover that life is propelled by Eros and made of love.
EMPOWER QUEER LEADERSHIP Embracing ALL of who and what you are, this training also serves to empower queer community and leadership. In the past, we have asked the mainstream for acceptance. Now it is time to fully claim our seat at the table and let the unique gifts and perspectives of queer tribe contribute to the culture at large. If you are looking for a male community in which to take your personal & relational, sexual & spiritual life to the next level, then this is the training for you.
