Exploring Conscious Touch

In this Exploring Conscious Touch workshop, we will join together as a community of men to explore touch in a variety of expressions:

An invitation from Arnie Katz, facilitator of Exploring Conscious Touch 

  • We will explore the art of giving and receiving massage and other touch-related modalities.  
  • We will practice asking for and receiving touch in a more conscious way. 
  • We will explore conscious erotic and sensual touch. 
  • We will explore and journey into the inter-connection of breath and touch.   
  • We will open to the sweetness of giving and receiving tender and intimate touch.  
  • We will explore communal touch and group touch.

We will also become more conscious about how touch affects us, nurtures us, and how we can let go of barriers to receiving touch and allow ourselves to have a deeper experience.  We will support each other in community to enrich our experience.  All this will be done in a container of respect and love, and using carefully selected music playlists and videos to enhance our inspiration, playfulness, and add creativity to the process. 

We will let go of stress and tension, be nurtured, and open up to greater ease and freedom of being. We will create a safe, respectful container to help ourselves awaken our bodies, heal, play, connect in community, and have fun. 

Please note that this workshop will include both clothes-on and clothing-free aspects.     

If you have any questions about this workshop, you can email Arnie directly at
