Join us at North American Bear Weekend for two of the workshops from our Bear Your Soul Event! 

Experience what many men have called a "life-changing" workshop! Through a series of exercises, you will be guided in helping one another to shed the “armor” we hide behind, let go of shame and be truly vulnerable. We will share affirmative touch, honor each other’s bodies, and give & receive energy. It can make you feel sexy and alive.  Our goal is to leave you feeling more em-powered and supported by your brothers, and more comfortable in your own skin. It is the cornerstone workshop at Bear Your Soul events at Easton Mountain in upstate New York. Thursday  Feb 2nd:  2 pm  -  4 pm and  8 pm - 10 pm Friday       Feb 3rd:  10 am - 12pm  and 1 pm - 3 pm Saturday   Feb 4th:  10 am - 12pm  and  1 pm - 3 pm

A clothing-on experience of communal warmth, contact and sharing. Join us in a group cuddle zone with candlelight and relaxing music. This is an experience of non-sexual group touch that will let you sink into the comfort of being close to your brothers. You will be guided in a meditation/visualization as part of a tribe in cave keeping warm by the fire. It is a very relaxing, fully clothed, sensual experience that can be arousing, but is intended to be non-sexual. It is a very popular part of Bear Your Soul retreat events at Easton Mountain in upstate New York. Thursday  Feb 2nd:  4:30 pm - 6 pm Friday       Feb 3rd:   4 pm - 5:30 pm Saturday   Feb 4th:   4 pm - 5:30 pm
