‘Heart-Centered Touch’ Massage Retreat with Adam Brown! Jan 18-21 (MLK Weekend)

The Heart-Centered Touch massage retreat is ideal for couples wanting to add compassionate, sensual touch to their relationships, or singles seeking to connect with men in new ways. Throughout the long weekend we will rotate partners so that everyone will have the opportunity to work with each other, both giving & receiving touch. The unique format of this all-inclusive retreat will allow plenty of time for all participants to practice and to relax and get acquainted. You do not need prior experience or have attended any previous workshops of this kind. The workshop material is meant to stand alone in learning and practice.

We don’t care if you are young or old, straight or gay, black or white, sculpted or sagging. Our massage workshops are open to all kinds of men: younger…older…buff…and not so buff….we always get a mix. The idea is to be open to all types of men with the common thread being the desire to learn and share the experience of male touch. We take pride in our respectful, supportive, and friendly atmosphere. We are refreshingly free of “attitude”.

Please join us! The retreat is limited to 12 men. No prior experience with massage is necessary, and the retreat is open to both singles and couples. See below for complete details, rates and to register!
