We all miss the hugs and close physical interactions that we have been able to be blessed with in the past and we look forward to the time when we will be able to resume with these very pleasant intimacies. We look forward to the future.

We are very thankful for the men who practice together as we create a community offering compassion and kindness. 

Awaken Studio - A welcoming, safe and
supportive environment for all men, to explore erotic and sexual experience, through exploratory
education, experimentation, play
and willing curiousity.
The Awaken Studio provides a space where with communal and humanistic intention all men are
welcome to dynamically and fluidly, create, explore and or re-experience sexual story and history.
Men transform and ascend to a state of  powerful, peaceful, joyful, and ecstatic transcendence.
Awakening the heart and spirit of men to the peace and surrender of masculine erotic power.
