WORKSHOPS


Morning Yoga & Meditation

This workshop will start with a 30 min meditation followed by 1 hr yoga. Please feel free to join in for one or both. The practice of yoga cultivates health and wellbeing (physical, emotional, mental and social) through the practice of a range of many different techniques, including postures and movement, breath awareness, breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation. Our classes typically includes some breathing exercises, yoga postures (including some partner poses) relaxation and/or meditation. Our classes are suitable for all levels of experience including beginners. Please bring a yoga mat (we will have some spares for those that do not have one), a large towel and a bottle of water.

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for real male community and social interaction between supportive, centered individuals who enjoy the practice of yoga as well as the company of other naked men.

Lomi Lomi Massage

Lomi Lomi is massage created by Hawaiian Kahunas to assist the body, mind and soul to heal.  It looks at the whole person (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual aspects) and their relationship to all things making way for clarity, awareness, lightness, love and freedom.  It works by opening up the heart using hands, breathing, rhythm and energy flow.

Ancient Hawaiians lived by principles and philosophies that supported harmonious and responsible living with each other and the natural environment.  These principles are used today to guide, create and support harmony in everyday life and remain a focus during massage.  

Lomi Lomi is a very nurturing, powerful and detoxifying massage that works by cleansing the lymphatic system, soothing the mind, relieving muscle tension and clearing the meridian lines in the body.  Lomi Lomi is also known as a heart opening and spiritual healing massage, that is potentially life changing.

This experience is so much more than learning a new massage technique, it is designed for deep healing, personal and spiritual growth and transformation.

Four Handed Sensual Erotic Massage

You get to move in and out of the spaces as you want. You can go in deep or be as frivolous as your want- it’s totally up to you.

Intimate Bondage

This is a workshop that explores connection, surrender and intimacy through Rope Bondage and Rope Energy.

There are many reasons why one might submit to being tied or why one might wish to tie. But before we lose ourselves in fancy techniques and aesthetic, it’s important to remember that Shibari and Rope Bondage are sensual, playful and erotic practices.

By binding and releasing each other, both partners are able to create an intimate energetic conversation resolving into meditative states of nirvana.

In this workshop you will work in dom/sub pairs. Come with a partner or meet one at the workshop. Rope will be provided and knot basics included, no prior knowledge required.


Shiatsu Workshop

Shiatsu is a Japanese style of bodywork, developed many centuries ago. It serves to address imbalances in the recipient’s overall energy levels and restore them to good health and wellbeing. Shiatsu incorporates: techniques for manipulating soft tissues to create warmth and increase circulation; joint mobilisation to remove stiffness and increase joint lubrication; muscle stretching to relieve cramping and improve mobility, co-ordination and posture; application of finger, thumb, palm and elbow pressure to reduce muscle cramping and stimulate energy flow through the nervous system; and guided breath coaching to engender relaxation and mental focus. Shiatsu is generally administered at ground level on a futon-style mat but can be adapted for use on low tables for those with mobility issues.

Prick Up Your Ears

Sound Healing sonic immersion With Jonny Seymour (Seymour Butts) and Mathew Bergan (Dancing Warrior). Using sound frequency and sonic vibration, we will guide you into a magical auditory landscape designed to uplift the Soul and rejuvenate the cellular body. This transformational workshop will take you through the 7 healing centres of the spiritual body, via conscious listening, embodied ritual and radical rest.

Using ancient ritual and shamanic breathwork, this workshop decontextualises masculine identity through embodied expression, the art of listening, and soulful connection. Here, you will enter the forest of the heart, release stress, access states of deep meditation and embrace the healing power of sound.

Expect to activate your entire energy system and move into altered states of awareness and connection. In this state, you will transcend the physical body and dissolve any limiting self-beliefs, taste the deep nectar of bliss and be supported by a community of like-minded men.

Come Out, Come Out, Wherever (Or Who Ever) You Are

Unless you’re a monogamous, straight cisgender man, you’ll probably understand that coming out is not a one-time event, but a never ending process.                                                                                                                              Our coming out stories are all varied, from being positive, to exciting to challenging or outright terrifying. Perhaps you’ve come out to some people in your life and not others, or perhaps you’re yet to come out at all.

Wherever you are on this journey, your coming out experiences are most likely an important part of your story, no matter whether they’re about your sexual orientation, your gender, you sexual explorations (think kink, roles, etc.) or even relationship orientation (think non-monogamy)

In this workshop we will create a safe space to share, and listen to, each other’s stories. Through the art of storytelling we will co-create meaningful connection and get to know each other on a deeper level, recognising both the commonality and the uniqueness within us all.


Sexual Healing

Our bodies are incredible organisms built to grow, repair and survive.  Our bodies are the vessels that encapsulate our entire lives, a store house of experiences from the blissful and beautiful to the difficult and painful.

During this workshop we will learn to follow the intuitive knowing of our bodies towards a place of healing and homeostasis. We will be utilizing the five erotic pillars of healing, whilst accessing the supportive and loving touch of another.  With safety, trust and support we can travel our unique road towards sexual healing.

The Art of Self Pleasure

How did you learn how to masturbate? If your answer is porn or friends or self-taught, then you have most likely only been shown a fraction of what your body is capable of.During this workshop you will learn how to use the five pillars of erotic work – mindfulness, touch, breath, sound and movement to increase your self pleasure!

60 Minutes of this workshop will be spent learning the five pillars together with an introduction to negotiating consent.

The last 30 minutes will be an opportunity to bring them together in your own self-pleasuring experience.
It is your choice if you would like to learn the 5 pillars but would prefer not to practice in the final part as a group. Please be advised this is NOT an orgy or circle jerk.


The Tunnel of Love

Within this stunning ritual, each man has an experience of entering into a tunnel of loving, intuitive hands.  As we move through the tunnel of love we will experience a plethora of sensations, thoughts and emotions. Each man’s journey different, each ride unique.

Within this workshop you may have an opportunity to experience deep pleasure, there may be a healing of body, mind and spirit. We will come together in community to provide a safe and nurturing space to practice generosity, self-love and care for one another.


Oily Ameoba
Have you ever wanted to lay naked in a pool of strangers with your eyes closed while listening to whale music and have warm oil poured over you until you become a slippery writhing hive of flesh? Its sexy. Its weird. It’s an oily Ameoba.


A Mega Tantric Forest

Experience the tickles, the cuddles, stokes and caresses of loving hands. As the distraction of attraction hides in darkness, your pleasure can emerge into the light. How much will you let go? How much will you surrender?We will be using fun touch and play to explore, boundaries, consent, sensory deprivation of sight, attraction, pleasure, surrender, generosity and community. This workshop does not take place in an actual forest.
