A Day in Your Life – Brisbane – May 2020
May 9 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$150
As you walk into the room, your confronted by 20 strangers, all men of various shapes,
ages, cultures and backgrounds. You feel some anxiety and wonder why you booked onto this workshop in the first place. Then you remember, you remember that feeling of longing, knowing that there must be something more, something more satisfying in your relationships with men. You read the website again and again as something inside of you got excited, excited by the possibility of something new, something different.
As you leave the room your heart is bursting. You can’t believe that in just one day a room full of strangers can suddenly transform into a community of friends and lovers. Your body is vibrating with energy, whilst simultaneously exhausted, satisfied and nourished. You feel a deep sense of courage and pride as you challenged yourself and tried out new things. A mirror has been lifted up and you have seen some new parts of you emerging, as some of the older parts fall away. You have been touched; touched physically, emotionally and spiritually.
During this day of your life you get to choose the journey you take between these bookends of stepping into a room full of strangers and leaving with a room full of Brothers. You get to navigate a spectrum of intimacy, sensuality and sexuality in relation to these men. You get to practice new techniques and rituals to help you connect more deeply with yourself and others. You become a witness to what it is you bring into the community and how you influence it.
The structure of the day will be guided and shaped by the participants who attend. It will therefore be different every time. Our focus as a group is to create safe boundaries and consent so that we can work from a place of trust, allowing us to move more deeply into connection with ourselves and each other. We will do this through embodiment practices, touch sessions, rituals and authentic dialogue.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided
Some exercises will require full nudity and there may be full body touch
Partners will be chosen randomly throughout the workshop
