consensuality gathering

A conscious touch and intimacy retreat for cis* men

Frustrated by apps and hookups as a way to try and explore your desires in a safe, meaningful way?

Longing to learn more about intimacy body to body with other men, but unsure how?

Explore consensual sensuality with an intimate group of like-minded men

Touch, pleasure and safety can feel like a tricky combination for many men - especially in group settings. This gathering is a chance to try something different; it's not a sex party, and it's not about hooking up in order to get off...

This is a unique opportunity for you to reset your relationship with consent and sensuality.

Learn and practice how to:

  • be touched exactly the way you want
  • touch another the way you want
  • offer your body as a gift with full willingness
  • offer your service for another’s pleasure
  • welcome and honour your limits
  • stop when you’ve had enough

What is conSensuality?

An interactive, learning experience for gay, bi or curious men, informed by sensuality, safety and choice

Hands-on coaching to help you develop your intimate skills and confidence when you’re with another man

Safely structured and guided space which is lovingly held, and non-judgemental, for you to learn about your desires

Somewhere supported for you to practice intimate touch in whatever way feels safe for you, moment to moment

What is this gathering?

A conscious sexuality workshop space for up to 11 cisgender* men who identify as gay, bi or curious to explore trust, intimacy and touch together.

Based on the 4 dynamics of touch that are the foundation of my one-to-one conSensuality coaching immersives, this carefully nurtured, and nuturing, group process is an opportunity for you to:

  • Access this life-changing relational work with me for less than the cost of the same work one-to-one
  • Share experiences, and benefit from the wisdom of others in a small group setting
  • Connect with other men who share your interest in learning how to be more conscious and consenting about touch and pleasure.

This gathering is about learning how to build intimate trust – with your own desires, with your own boundaries, and in relationship with another man’s body.

This is not like a typical workshop. It’s important this space is the right space for everyone in it. And getting things right takes time and care.

This gathering is a calling – it's about drawing the right group of men together at the right time.
