Eros-Spirit Massage: Oct 13-15 
 

“Tantra says: Accept whatsoever you are - a great mystery of many multi-dimensional energies. Then every energy becomes a help, and then this very body is a temple, a holy temple, a holy place.”
Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (Osho)

Eros is much more than just our sex drive; it is our life force. Focusing on building up the life force within queer men (in the most expansive use of the term “men”), we invite you to Eros-Spirit Massage: a weekend intensive drawing upon traditions of tantra, movement, and meditation.

WEEKEND INTENSIVE INCLUDES

  • Massage instruction and practice with a focus on nurturing, creating safety, and fostering trust

  • Exploration of different types of touch and how they activate different energetic responses

  • How to take care of your own body while giving massage

  • Increasing self-awareness, practicing consent, and communicating honestly

  • Becoming a better lover by slowing down

  • Connections with other men through multiple, randomized pairings in an intimate container

  • Expressing and sharing your authentic experiences in circle

  • Introduction to the philosophy underlying the tantric approach

  • Teachings on the chakra system and how to move energy through the body

  • Guidance through movement exercises, meditation, and sound improvisation

  • Experiential practice on how to give pleasure to the full body

  • Friday Oct 13 | 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

I'm grateful to live, work and play in Vancouver, on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples. I've given massages informally for twenty years, and in 2018 started a sensual massage practice, Slow Hand Massage (www.slowhandmassage.com).  I take a meditative, sensual and integrative approach to support people of all genders and orientations to discover, enjoy and improve their relationship with their whole bodies, just the way they are.

SCHEDULE:

  • The mornings will offer activities to help you relax, get into your body, and prepare you to share healing touch.

  • The afternoons will encompass massage instruction on tables: 

    • On Saturday afternoon, you will learn ways of using touch to care for people with whom you do not have an intimate relationship. The massage is done in shorts. You’ll learn to focus on the entire body beyond the pelvis.

    • On Sunday afternoon, you will learn how to honour the entire body in a sacred, caring way. In this afternoon, clothing is optional and boundaries are discussed and respected.
