BIOENERGETICS MEETS MEN’S WORK
with Eric Diamond, PhD
NOVEMBER 18 and 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…
Expressing and releasing anger and grief
…in a place of brotherhood, acceptance and safety.

MEN'S RETREAT REPORT
Thirteen MEN completed the Exploring the Masculine Retreat in December 2016.C-Leaders were E Diamond, Jeff Weisberg, and Michael Broas, plus assistance from Aziz ?Hakeem. We delved into the "Hunter's Tale" aka The Rat's Tale, and made sacred space together.
Six brave men completed the one-day Love and Relationship Challenges Men's Retreat held at the Kevmen Men's Center in Lowell, Florida, Pn September 24, 2015. Leaders were Eric Diamond and Kevin Cutrell. The day featured intense work on daunting and emotional crises and dilemmas in the men's love relationships, plus some healing work regarding father and mother wounding. One man entered the Monday Night Men's Group immediately, and one has jumped in for the next Exploring the Masculine. We honor the courage and spirit of these men, who showed up big-time for each other.
IN THE COMING YEAR, OUR MONDAY NIGHT GROUP ENTERS ITS 21st YEAR, AND
TUESDAY NIGHT GROUP ENTERS ITS 8TH YEAR.
