Men as Sexual Beings: Pleasure, Shame, Pride and Intimacy

Apr 29 - May 01, 2016 Begins in 2 months
with Matt Englar-Carlson & Mark Stevens

For many men, sexual energy occupies a tremendous amount space in our way of knowing ourselves and relating to others. Though sex is around all of us, often so little time is spent talking about and better understanding our sexual desires, worries, and experiences. This workshop offers men an opportunity to create a safe and trusting environment in which to share the personal stories that have shaped who we are as sexual beings and what we want for our future.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


Make a difference and leave a legacy by becoming a Friend of Esalen.


A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
