Experiential Embodied Erotic Explorations for Men

Experiential Embodied Erotic Explorations for Men



Today I sit with 4 questions:

  1. What is your relationship to your physical body?
  2. What is your relationship to your body of spirit?
  3. What is your relationship to your relatedness?
  4. What is your relationship to your creative body?

Of course these four questions bring more questions and this is where the LOVE is.

  • I LOVE to hear about how a man can love himself to have a healthy physical, mental emotional body
  • I LOVE to hear about how a man comes out to his family and how that connects to spirit.
  • I LOVE to hear about how a man looks and loves and is in a relationship and connected to the world around him.
  • I LOVE to hear about how a man pulls the juice from his body to be creative and vibrant and totally alive in the electricity of LIFE

When do you ask these questions? When do you get to be heard? When do you look at how you are with your body, spirit, community, creative source?

Come out on a Wednesday night… Let’s talk!

Wednesday Evening Salon Series at the Awaken Studio with Phillip Coupal

LIFE Force Creative Source
Wednesday Evening Salon Series at the Awaken Studio with Phillip Coupal


This day feels like the beginning to me. It was not a week ago or even 12 days ago… this day feels like the start.

Today is a day that will be full of abundance and wisdom… This of course was the day that the Magi arrived… That is as far as my magical mind will go into the mysteries of Christianity. I prefer to follow a much more pagan and far more disorganized path…

Saturday was most amazing because I was able to be a part of an initiative for the movie “Epiphany” by Andrew Adams… A movie of how a man finds redemption through touch on a massage table. The making of this movie is something that I have supported for a couple of years. It is very heartening to see it coming together with a shooting date set for sometime at the end of March of this year. If you would like more information or are interested in supporting this ground breaking adventure, contact Andrew.

Over the last seven days I have had my own “Epiphany” around how I advertise and promote my services. On Saturday I set up meeting groups on social media (where I am not censored, but allowed). You will see much more of the Awaken Studio in the course of this year.

As I start the Salon Series on Wednesday evening I am growing exited and continuing to open rather than shut down in anticipatory anxiety… Breathing, Smiling and Action all help. The M4M Touch Exchange group will happen on Sunday January 13th. Registration is still open.

Let your Light Shine at Awaken Studio

I continue to be inspired by the “Gypsy” chandelier. All that LIGHT. All that COLOUR. All that SPARKLE. YUM

A New Year… New Beginnings… New DREAMS 
Awaken Studio – 270 Carlaw Avenue, Unit 102, Toronto Ontario

What are your dreams for 2013? What are you letting go of? What are seeking more of?

These were some of the questions we asked in community at the New Years Day Heart Circlefor men. This event was very powerful and contained meaning for me as I was able to listen to, integrate and support the New Years dreams of the men who were there and sharing, and I was able to share my own dreams and desires with a group of men who were able to hold my heart.

This New Years event brought forward the need for more community events of this nature at the Awaken Studio. Events that simply support and allow for the free expression of what goes on in the hearts of men. Events that allow for men to come together and be held, supported and loved in their expression and manifestation.

At the Awaken Studio many of the events that are line for 2013 are as a direct result of requests coming from the community of men. The Wednesday evening salon series is an example of this opening to offerings as they are requested. Come on IN and be yourself, you never know what surprise you might find.

The events and offering are very consistent. Each month there are: unique offerings exploring the hearts of men on Wednesday evenings, a Breath, Movement and Meditation class Thursday evenings, a monthly afternoon Touch Exchange, a full day of exploration and discovery –Exquisite Connections and finally there are weekend offerings that allow for a deeper and more expanded experience. Check out what is available and make certain to look through the
