Focus is very important to me. In staying in focus I can remain in that Exquisite Connection that I so desire and want to be in at all times.

Why my focus strays I am usually in a comparison… Some form of wondering what if or why or if only or I should have, could have, would have, if only…

The inner voice can be relentless.

When I notice that my focus is shifting and I am loosing the Exquisite quality of the connect. I take a big breath… hold it for a moment… connect with my very root… let go of the breath and bring my focus back to where it needs to be. This small body check-in will bring me back to myself.

ANNOUNCEMENT: There will be major changes in my website over the next few days and weeks… Check out the new site after November 5th…

Awaken Studio – Life Force for Men


Off onto another sojourn on the journey of discovery with another group of men. I am excited for the weekend.

The time is here and I am thrilled with how this piece of the journey is unfolding. I am savoring the experience of travel, even though I never leave my home city.I am delighted that the Awaken Studio is opening itself to the delights of men passing through. Men who come to stretch into their relationship, stretch into their physical body, stretch their experience to gather new information about their sexuality, stretch into themselves as creatures of sensual pleasure.

The Journey
Even though you’re not equipped,
keep searching:
equipment isn’t necessary on the way to the Lord.
Whoever you see engaged in search,
become her friend and cast your head in front of her,
for choosing to be a neighbor of seekers,
you become one yourself;
protected by conquerors,
you will yourself learn to conquer.
If an ant seeks the rank of Solomon,
don’t smile contemptuously upon its quest.
Everything you possess of skill, and wealth and handicraft,
wasn’t it first merely a thought and a quest?

From: Mevlâna Jalâluddîn Rumi

Going for … Juicy Heart

anal voyage

From FAB Magazine October 24,2012
Full Frontal…Popped Culture … Page 8

“Many many men don’t feel empowered or have enough
knowledge about their ass . . . it’s nothing that’s taught in
school,” says Phillip Coupal, counsellor, coach and body
worker. Coupal runs a series of workshops for men that
deal with various aspects of sex and sexuality. “In San
Francisco there are ‘sexological body workers’ and there
are ‘sacred intimates’ . . . all these people who will take you
on an erotic voyage. There’s very little of that [in Toronto],”
he says. A recent workshop dealt with genital touch, and
one in December will focus on being multiorgasmic,
but his upcoming workshop plunges into the tight but
receptive void of anal touch. “There is a lot of shame and
mythology about the ass, and this workshop will help
people gain a more conscious knowledge of it,” he says.
Coupal conducts an initial consultation with
prospective attendees, making sure they are suited to
this type of group situation. The workshop itself begins
on Friday, with experimentation and discussion to dispel
performance anxiety; Saturday involves introspective
exercises and conversation; and on Sunday, attendees are
paired off with random partners (this particular workshop
is not for couples) for some caressing, fi ngering and maybe
some play with toys. While Coupal occasionally holds
workshops that involve trans men, this particular event is
only for men who were born with male bodies.
Coupal stresses that while the workshop is very sexual
in nature, it is not a free-for-all sex fest. He says that often
“an orgy’s energy level will go up really high and might not
be as consensual or personal as this workshop will be.”

Experiential Embodied Erotic Exploration – Anal Touch

Fab Magazine October 24, 2012 #462



Obstacles… simply an illusion. I am finally learning that these so-called obstacles are a distraction.

The elements of life that seem to get in the way … these are often seen by me as obstacles. I have begun to look at them differently.

My experiment for today with obstacles…What would happen if I looked at the elements that are getting in my way, the obstacles of life, as simply a distraction. A distraction from simply following my heart.


Obstacles and Illusion

Experiential Embodied Erotic Explorations



I love Sister Unity and her telling of the Story of Ganesh -♥-

Sometimes I think that I have gone all the way over the edge…

that I have lost my mind…

I can be very unhappy…

and then…

I check into my heart…

what I find…

I am happy…

everything is good…

I am totally sane…

Following my HEART!  -♥-

Juicy Heart from the Keith Haring Collection

Juicy Heart from the Keith Haring Collection

Today I look at where I am and realize that I live and dream in the same moment and in the same time.

Working today to create safety and acceptance for all men. Loving with an open heart. Working  within my world and community to bring forth the values of humanity that I cherish. What I put in is what I will get out.

Loving being relevant and bringing relevancy into a world that has said that I am irrelevant.

Dear Human

…Infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling. Demonstrated through the beauty of… messing up. Often. You didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are. You came here to be gorgeously human. Flawed and fabulous. …

… It’s enough. It’s Plenty.

 ~ Courtney A. Walsh

On my Birthday a look at humanity and the human condition. -♥- Glad to be 56! Born in 56… This will only happen once! 😉
