Celebrating the Body Erotic for all Genders – Extended

Date: 14 Oct '21 - 17 Oct '21
Location: Easton Mountain Retreat, Greenwich NY

Through the Body Electric school
with Emaya Elfi Dillon & William McMeniman

Fabulous workshop with incredible teachers

I attended this workshop about two years ago and it changed my life.

Emaya and William are wise, compassionate and gifted teachers. They surrounded themselves with great assistants and called in the perfect mix of participants.

It was safe, funny, challenging and sexy. The mix of people was amazing; it is good for any gender and orientation.

Event Description

Celebrating the Body Erotic: A Workshop for All Genders is the signature experience of The New Body Electric School. Come explore your potential through your body, and heart and mind. We use conscious breath, movement, process work and consensual massage to open our hearts, wake up our embodied intelligence, and expand our capacity for joy.

You will learn how to both give and receive pleasure through touch. This workshop focuses on your entire body and is conducted in a setting that is playful, respectful, and honoring. This is an exploration of Eros rather than an exploration of gender and all genders are welcome.

Completion of any Celebrating the Body Erotic Workshop is a prerequisite for attending most other weekend workshops, intensive programs, and other retreats offered by the New Body Electric School.

Here is a video of Emaya (co-facilitator) and Suzanne (co-coordinator) talking about the workshop.

What’s Possible

As a participant you may:

  • Gain greater acceptance and agency of yourself as an erotic being, physically, mentally and emotionally.
  • Discover ways to develop a more satisfying erotic relationship with yourself and others.
  • Become more aware of spiritual dimensions in your erotic explorations.
  • Experience awareness of Eros as transpersonal.

Celebrating the Body Erotic is a clothing optional workshop and is for you if you are ready to vigorously explore new levels of feelings within yourself, within a community of adventurous adults.
