Easton Mountain Retreat Center
Steve Schwartzberg & William McMeniman
The Erotic Temple is one of the more advanced workshops presented by Body Electric in 2013 and it’s a prerequisite to attending Sacred Intimacy Training. So, if you’re seeking an experience with two masterful Body Electric facilitators and desire a deeper experience into sacred eros, this workshop is highly respected. ~MSpirit

Join us as we delve further into the mysteries, delights, and life-affirming power of sacred Eros. Our explorations start from a pair of simple yet profoundly rich questions:
- What, to each of us, is sacred?
- How can we bring this more fully into our lives?
Building on the integrity, safety, and edginess you have come to expect from Body Electric, Erotic Temple combines communal erotic celebrations with rituals, tribal energy, meditative self-pleasure, full-bodied stimulation, erotic touch and creative holistic worship, along with journaling, camaraderie, play, and immersion in nature’s beauty. Look to deepen the connections of heart, Eros, psyche, and soul already forged. Amid a fellowship of open-hearted comrades, this is a great opportunity to learn more about the innate wisdom of the erotic body, and the human yearning for spiritual transcendence.
This is a residential workshop at Easton Mountain Retreat Center about one hour northeast of Albany, NY. Transportation can be arranged from Albany airport or train/bus terminal by contacting Easton Mountain directly. There will also be the opportunity to coordinate ride shares with other participants via information sent prior to the workshop.
Steven Schwartzberg holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and is a practitioner of several healing arts, including psychotherapy, sacred intimacy, and body-oriented approaches to emotional well-being. He spent 15 years on the attending faculty of Harvard Medical School and has written several books, including A Crisis of Meaning: How Gay Men are Making Sense of AIDS.
William McMeniman is a massage therapist and Sacred Intimate with a private practice in the greater Boston area. He has a background in mental health, education and breathwork. He seeks to integrate the ecstatic path into everyday life through his teaching.
