What are you grateful for from the past 365 days? ♥
What are you looking forward to in the next 365 days? ♥

This New Years Eve seems different. As I look at what I want to let go of and what I want to bring more of in this New Year, this time of opportunity. I realize how grateful I am for all that has happened to me in the past 365 days. I have been blessed with many life lessons. These lessons have sometimes hurt, however, they have contributed to the place I am now and to what I feel now.

I am looking forward to growing yet again. Growing into a dancing happy man. A man who can ebb and flow in that place that I will call ecstasy. That place that is all of everything and at the same time full of nothing.

I am looking forward to the growth of community around me as I expand and develop and charge the Awaken Studio, a place for all men to find their way into BEing all that they can BE.

LOVE and Peace.

Come dance with me into the New Year.

Holi Hands  Celebrating all that is and all that is diverse.

Seeking Community 
Awaken Studio – 270 Carlaw Avenue, Unit 102, Toronto Ontario

The number one comment or question that I receive on a daily basis asks for and about community. Where do men go to find community?

A community that is honest towards the nature and desires of men who love men. A community where you can be naked if you choose. A community where you can be honest about your thoughts, feelings and desires AND you can be in an environment that is Safe, Sane and Conscious. A community where there is little artifice and you are welcome to be yourself without a lot of role play and posturing. A place in the world where all of you is welcome.

At the Awaken Studio, the events and space have been designed for and actively seek the creation of a community of men who love men right here in Toronto. Join in and be a part of this new venture. Come on IN and be yourself.

Below please find listings for the December events at the Awaken Studio. If you wish to attend any of these events please visit the website page for the event that has caught your interest.

PLEASURE

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.”
—Jeremy Willard

“If you aren’t good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you’ll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren’t even giving to yourself.”
– Barbara De Angelis

A question… When you are giving do you give to yourself first?

What would happen if you were able to set the tone for how you would like the world to be by starting with yourself?

LOVE – This will be my motto for the weekend!

” Love yourself first and everything falls into line” ~ Lucille Ball

 

 

love yourself first

Love yourself first and everything falls into line ~ Lucille Ball

 

Coming OUT to yourself.

Sometimes crawling, stepping, dancing outside of the comfort zone might be a challenge, a joy, a thrill, a nightmare.

Having a community, a family, a support network around can be helpful and sometimes in this stepping out all one can do is step bravely forward and leap!

This from the internet:

“When you are brave enough to live your truth
You give someone else persmission to do the same.”
 
"When you are brave enough to live your truth, you give someone else permission to do the same."

“When you are brave enough to live your truth, you give someone else permission to do the same.”
