Dear Love of Comrades

July 13-19, 2015 • Easton Mountain
With Collin Brown & William McMeniman

Experience the gathering of your dreams, where full-body rituals and a community of loving brothers invite you to feel the power of your own erotic wisdom.

Dear Love begins where Celebrating the Body Erotic (CBE) leaves off and introduces graduates of a CBE workshop to Body Electric’s advanced work. The week combines erotic bodywork with heart-centered community and focuses on refining erotic touch skills, the erotic joys of nature, self-pleasuring and anal awareness.

The result is a deeper self-awareness and greater emotional clarity through the healing power of tribal eroticism. Come experience the freedom and safety to explore your hearts desire and to establish lasting friendships within the global community of sacred brothers.

This is a residential workshop taking place at Easton Mountain near Greenwich NY, CA, about an hour northeast of Albany (the closest airport and Amtrak station). Easton Mountain can provide transfers to and from Albany with prior arrangement.

The workshop fee includes meals beginning the evening of the first day and concluding with lunch on the last day of the workshop.

Dear Love of Comrades is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A blessing Many years ago I attended this workshop in California. For the first time, ever, I felt attractive, sexy, sensual, loved, loving, and MORE! It was the beginning of the biggest change of my life! A change that has allowed me to make a difference in 1000's of people's lives. I loved it so much, however, I've been afraid to come back. What if I never could have such an experience again?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Summer Camp you never had! Dear Love of Comrades was my first body electric program I took after the introductory program called CBE. It was simply amazing. It was like the Gay Summer Camp I never got to have as a kid. I was able to be out in nature, be playful, and be myself and be unashamed about my body and my sexuality and to feel welcomed into a community of men. The comaraderie, the fun and the growth have stayed with me. I made several friends that continue to this day. I highly recommend this program.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing journey! I attended my first Dear Love of Comrades in 2005 ! Beyond deepening my own personal growth, I remember most the incredible heart-centered friendships and connections that were created, several of which are still nourished 10 years later. DLC is truly about creating intimacy with other men, exploring new ways of being in the world, and embracing joy and play in your life. An amazing journey for all men !

Is this workshop open to women?

Asked by: Kricket2213
Unfortunately not. This is one of our flagship men's programs. Women's programs have been limited because there hasn't been a lot of interest. We're hoping to change that and contemplating new ideas and strategies to create greater awareness. If you have any thoughts, I would be happy to hear from you (tberry@b-e-school.com). Thank you for your interest and support of Body Electric

I've been on other week-long retreats but not with BES, which usually cost under $900. I am curious as to why this retreat is so expensive. I've read the summary; and even though it all sounds wonderful, I am concerned. Please advise. Thank you.

Asked by: Benjamin
It all amounts to costs: room, meals, faculty expenses (honorarium, air fares and other travel expenses), and supplies. With two faculty for most of our intensive programs, these costs add up. The Body Electric School is not a profit-making organization. We struggle to cover our costs across the board. If personal finances get in the way of attendance, we have options including our Scholarship program and PayPal invoicing which can spread payments over six months. Please contact the Registrar at info@b-e-school.com for assistance or further questions.

I am looking at attending but need to know the end time on the 19th to see if I can get back home on that day or need to take off the 20th from work.  I am flying in/out of St. Louis , MO.

Asked by: Michael
The program begins just before dinner on Monday, July 13 and ends following lunch on Sunday, July 19. The travel time between Easton Mountain and the Albany airport is about one hour. We generally recommend flying out at 3 PM or later if possible. Please contact the Registrar (info@b-e-school.com) for further logistical questions.
