Workshop for Gay & Bisexual Men June 21-22, 2008

Reclaiming the Man in the Mirror
A workshop for Gay men on Sex, Love and Intimacy

We live in a sexually illiterate society. There is little to no permission to
examine openly our sexuality in terms of orientation, behavior and fantasies.
Most people, gay and straight alike, do not know if their sexual fantasies
and/or sexual acts are healthy versus unhealthy. While gay men are more inclined
to act out their sexual desires and fantasies more openly than their
heterosexual counterparts, there still lies confusion as to what is positive and
self-affirming and what is not.

There is also confusion about what is
sex, what is love and what is intimacy. This workshop will explore the
definitions of each of these and how to integrate them all together for gay men.

What is your definition of love?

What is your definition of intimacy?

The goal of this workshop
is to learn more about yourself as a gay man, develop tools and practices to
live in integrity and be accountable, and to be able to identify your needs and
communicate them effectively without your reactive mind getting in your way. It
will also help you to develop strong relationships (both intimate and

These are just some of the questions we will be examining
at the upcoming workshop. The workshop will include guided imagery, experiential
exercises, communication exercises and lectures.

We will explore sexual
behavior and fantasies with understanding, compassion, and without judgment.
