NAKED MEN*

We invite all GBTQ men to try out, experiment, explore boundaries, overcome shame and explore your authentic self in a weekend of workshops. Leave everyday life behind and dive into new worlds with curiosity, courage and openness.

 

Six experienced teachers, bodyworkers, healers and artists will create a varied program of workshops on bodywork, sexuality, spirituality, creativity and ritual. There will sometimes be two workshops at the same time, so that you can choose where you want to go.

 

We speak swiss german, high german and english.


SCHEDULE

The first and last workshop on each day is for everyone.

In the blocks in between you can decide spontaneously which of the two workshops you want to attend. 

The workshops can change and will be continuously adapted and supplemented.

DREAMS MAY COME TRUE

In changing groups of two, we’ll take three steps toward happiness: first we discover what we want to experience, then we tell each other about our dreams, and together we finally make our dreams cum true.

MAGICAL MASTURBATION CIRCLE

MIT JULIAN

 

Discover, explore and play with your inner voyeur and exhibitionist. Observe and be a witness or show yourself. Or all at once. When do you feel comfortable or inhibited? What gives you the thrill? In this ritual, you can switch between roles and experiment at any time, so that you only ever do what you really want to do.



FACILITATORS

JULIAN

 

Julian originally studied acting, dance and singing before discovering his passion for massages and bodywork. He regularly organizes and conducts men's courses and weekend workshops in Zurich and Berlin. Important topics are breath, voice, movement, touch, self-acceptance and the discovery and expression of one's own needs as the key to a liberated and more fulfilled (sex-)life.

ALEXANDER

 

Since my childhood the direct contact with my fellow human beings has played an important role for me. Tantra and Lomi Lomi massages as well as Reiki energy work have inspired and positively changed my life. This kind of contact enables me to accompany people on their "journey", to carry them and to open a protected space for them in individual sessions and workshops.

SAM

 

sam is a polyamorous radical faerie who loves to play in lots of ways with desire, the body, and sexuality. sam takes what he knows about this practice with people, bodies, and sexuality from widely diverse contexts where sam has participated in, assisted, or co-created play. sam explores encounters between people and loves and lives meditation and BDSM.


COCO

  

Coco is an audio and video artist. In his artworks he deals with gender identities, sexuality and taboo topics. Since he was 16 years old, he has been interested in various Western and Eastern body techniques, integrating them into his life and giving workshops in Asia, America and Europe: brainwave training, creating in flow, Zen meditation, Tantra, Tao, massage, BDSM, autogenic training and Alexander Technique

My main profession is therapeutic work in a private clinic for psychiatry & psychotherapy. Training in nursing, art therapy, integral yoga & meditation, energetic healing, psychological astrology. I like to work with humans in a holistic way. Creativity, body, mind & soul. Eros & esotericism, sex & spirit, profundity & humor. The joyful way to oneself.
