Bioenergetic Workshop for Men

Bioenergetics Meets Men's Work

with Eric Diamond, PhD

November 18-19, 2017

8 – 12 Men … Sons Come Free (ages 15+) … “Early Bird” Discount


About the Leader: Eric Diamond, Ph.D. – Eric is a psychotherapist with 30 years experience; graduate of the Bioenergetics Training Program; Training Leader in Bioenergetic Therapy; Founder and Director of the Gainesville Men’s Center; and co-leader of the Exploring the Masculine Men’s Retreats.  Eric is also a husband, father, musician and creator of “evocative, complex, and amusing” poetry which was recently published in a collection entitled Strange Frontier.

About the Workshop: Bioenergetics is a powerful approach to change, to growth, and to Life itself, that weaves emotional release and unblocking of holding patterns with sophisticated understanding of psychodynamics, character, and inner conflict. This weekend retreat will combine Bioenergetics and Men’s work. Men’s Work is built on truth-telling and brotherhood in safe settings, enhanced by the wisdom in mythic stories and energized by transformative experiences using the power of group support and challenge. Every man will have the opportunity to go deeply into what he is seeking and have support to let go of burdens and fears. He will also bring in expressive men’s work, including story, poetry, and drumming. Each man will have the opportunity to have focused work meeting his own needs, and the chance to give his gifts to other men.

This workshop will offer…

Bioenegetic experiences
Group activities
Expressing and releasing anger and grief
Facing fear
…in a place of brotherhood, acceptance and safety.
