Posts Tagged ‘Creating something new’

Someone asked me “What got me interested in doing what I do?” My response took some time as I needed to go through a few layers.

Right down at the bottom was that there was nothing here in Toronto that offered me what I was looking for. A safe place for me to gather with other men, to talk, touch and simply be myself without judgement and without having to become someone that I was not.

As a part of the story, I had travelled often to the United States to participate and assist in the events that offered what I was looking for. I wanted more of this and I wanted it with the people who are directly in my life on a day to day basis. I was tired of travelling. I was tired of making myself fit the corporate image that was demanded of me to be a part of these practices, for men coming together to be themselves as they related with other men. In my travels I had learned extensively about “holding space”, “creating a safe and uplifting environment” and ultimately I had learned that one of my strengths was that I could be myself, relaxed and loving as I welcomed men into the spaces and places of my dreams. I could find myself and be myself as I supported the men around me to be themselves.

The beginning of the Awaken Studio took place here in Toronto in March of 2012 as I prepared to offer this space for many events as a part of a very diverse program. The “NEW Beginning” really took place a few months later as I realized that I was totally and profoundly alone and on my own. I realized that my travelling days were behind me and that I simply needed to stand in my own ability to create, innovate and be exactly who I wanted to be. I had to give myself permission to cut the ties and simply be me and go for what I wanted and what I had dreamed of all of my life.

From the beginning, back in 2012 and even before that, for what seems to me to be all of time, I have grown and developed and found myself. I have explored and discovered the strength to stand on my own as I accept help, love and support from those around me. I have learned and found how to transform fear and uncertainty into permission to move forward fearlessly.

As an ongoing practice of my life I express gratitude on a daily basis. Today I find that I am profoundly grateful for the teachers that have brought me to this place. I can even say that I am profoundly grateful for those who have done their best to belittle me, tell me that I am irrelevant, that I will not succeed and that I am misguided for doing this on my own, I am actually able to be thankful to these bullies and miss guided souls.   I am profoundly grateful for the men who I interact with daily for they are the reason that I live. I am profoundly grateful for my husband of over 40 years as he is the reason that I can love the way I do.

The Happy Ending is not nearly so fraught with angst and fear as the New Beginning. The Happy Ending is really an ongoing opening into the world as I become more and more myself, grateful everyday for the world around me and the LOVE and BEAUTY that supports me and nourishes me.

LOVE – LIGHT and Blessings to all.

Today World AIDS Day. December 1, 2013

Waking up to feeling like the MISFIT that I am. Realizing and knowing that I don’t really fit in, I don’t really belong and I never have. Even in the groups and organizations that I felt like I belonged to and was a part of for so long I realize now that I was simply too different to fit in.

For a long time I felt that being so different was a problem. Being so different made me an outcast and undesirable. Something is different today. Something inside of me has changed.  Something is different and I am finally, after cresting past middle age, realizing that all the stuff that makes me so different and such a MISFIT is actually what makes me myself. I don’t have to be a victim of this MISFIT, QUEERNESS.

Today I feel powerful and I can actually let all that QUEER ENERGY and all that sense of not belonging feed my POWER and my SENSE OF SELF. This is the place where I can make that QUEER MISFIT, into a BEING that is FIERCE and BOLD and full of the wholesome richness of life and love. I do not have to be afraid, ashamed or guilty that I am so different. I can bring that BIG, BOLD and FIERCE, QUEER out into the world and some good and kind and gracious LOVE into the community that I am a part of. 

I finally able, at this point in my life, to look at myself and feel good about what I have done and what I am doing. What is that you ask? What are you doing?

What I am doing with my life these days is creating a space, a community that welcomes and embraces all that is diversity in men who LOVE men. The Awaken Studio is that physical place. A space and place for men to come together and be a part of. A part of what we can create together, a part of what we each put in and a part of what we will each take away. An urban space and downtown place welcoming all of the energy of not belonging. An open, welcoming and hospitable place where men can bring their queer energy.  This queer spirit can be focused and channeled and sculpted  into creating community,events and gatherings for all men who love men.

Check out the Queer Heart Talking Circle, a gathering for all queers and all men who are willing to dedicated themselves and create a safe, welcoming and honouring environment. A gathering where men who love men can come together and share their Queer Heart and LOVING Gay Spirit.

For more information about the Queer Heart Talking Circle gatherings contact Phillip and the Awaken Studio at: phillip@phillipcoupal.ca

What is growing in your garden?

Living with shame can be toxic… dry… frozen. A life full of regret, anxiety and fear.

  • What can happen in life when one can shed the layers of shame, guilt, stigma?
  • What can happen when one replaces shame with honour, pride, respect?

Living without shame can be verdant… juicy… hot. A life full of joy, peace and love.

I believe that when we drop the layers of shame that we carry in our lives we can live more fully and freely. We will have more time and energy to express the verdant nature of our selves and true heart.

When you want to have  a conversation about how you can create a detox from shame, let me know I would be glad to have this conversation with you.

October Update and Offerings for Phillip Coupal and the Awaken Studio

Seizing the moment”, “taking that leap”, “make every moment count”, these thoughts are with me constantly as I bring forward the offerings at the new and vibrant Awaken Studio.

The September weekend workshop was empowering and opening. The October weekend workshop is exciting to see grow. The November and December workshops are open for registrations. Based in the interest that has been shown for the workshops they will be at capacity well before the weekend that they are scheduled in.”Seize the moment.” The peace and power found in the Thursday evening Breath and Movement class has been a reassurance “Take that leap”. I have shifted Wednesday evening to be more client-centric and will offer a playful, soothing and experimental laboratory to explore Eros. “Make every moment count.”

Here are the offerings for October and beyond. Please make sure to seize the opportunities for yourself and become a part of the heartfelt and open community that is forming at the Awaken Studio.

October Events

  • ·         Monthly Experiential Embodied Erotic Exploration – Anal Touch for Men – Weekend Event
Experiential Embodied Erotic Exploration Anal Touch for Men

Experiential Embodied Erotic Exploration Anal Touch for Men

Friday October 26th, Saturday October 27th and Sunday October 28th. 7:00 pm to 10 pm on Friday and 9:30 am thru 6:30 pm Saturday and Sunday

The event will take place from Friday evening to Sunday evening. The Awaken Studio offers an atmosphere that is safe, playful, honouring and respectful for men to explore their attitudes and relationship their butt and anal touch.

This workshop offers a rare opportunity to explore anal touch in a safe and uplifting atmosphere, with a community of like-minded men.

Individual, partnered and group exercises welcome all men into the exploration of their bodies to explore and experience conscious, full body touch with a focus on the ass and anal touch. The workshop will explore human nature, curiosity, pleasure, desire, fear and shame.

Experiences will utilize movement, breath, demonstration, exploration, experience, touch and mediation to bring participants a fully embodied educational experience. The workshop will explore territories of the body that are in public, generally off-limits. Much of the workshop will take place without cloths and will provide the opportunity to explore the ass in a full-bodied and whole-hearted manner.

The workshop will look at ways to create a safe, sane and consensual, conscious awareness towards anal pleasure. By shedding some light and offering some experience onto an area of the body that is sometimes held in darkness and shame. The workshop can reveal new attitudes and awareness in relation to the ass and anal touch, both individually and with a partner.

Rooted in the teachings of Joseph Kramer, Tantra and other teachers of erotic exploration this workshop will bring fresh and new information and help to create a sense of knowledge, integrity, peacefulness and balance especially in relation to the BUTT.

The fee for this weekend workshop is $295.00 for the event. There is an early registration discount. Register and pay by October 12th and the fee is $250.00. If you are interested or would like to register please email me at phillip@phillipcoupal.ca

As of this date there are 6 positions available in this event, if you plan to attend please make sure to let me know as soon as possible.
