The next GNI Gathering will be held August 18 – 27, 2017.
REGISTRATION will open in early 2017.
GNI is once again offering the Celebrating the Body Erotic (CBE) introductory workshop by The Body Electric School during the Early Arrival weekend (August 19-21, 2016). We’ve offered CBE during the past three Gatherings and they’ve been a huge success!
The Body Electric School workshops can help you experience your potential as a fully-integrated, loving, and self-aware being through personal growth exercises, touch, massage, conscious breath, and honoring the wisdom of the body. Come experience deeper, conscious connection with men in a safe, healthy, and playful setting. We raise erotic energy, but this is not sex. Most men find this work to be rejuvenating, uplifting, and healing.

CBE is a great way to begin your Gathering. The CBE workshop will be held on Early Arrival weekend, from Friday to Sunday, August 19-21, 2016. It starts with an evening session on Friday, and continues all day Saturday and Sunday. Workshop participants should plan to arrive at The Gathering before dinner on Friday, August 19 with a commitment to attending the entire workshop. It will be an experience you will never forget!
The course will be led by Dave Allen, Body Electric faculty member. You can read his bio here.
The class size is limited, so please sign up as soon as possible.
The workshop tuition is separate from The Gathering registration fee, but GNI members qualify for a discounted tuition of $505.75 (15% off). New to GNI? A complimentary, trial membership to GNI is included (for any participant that isn’t already a GNI member), good through August 31, 2016, so new members coming just for the workshop can receive the tuition discount, too. (If you register to stay on at The Gathering after the workshop, you will need to purchase a standard GNI membership.)
Men under 30 receive a $100 discount off the full tuition, for a total of $495. (Discounts may not be combined.)
Some tuition assistance may be available based on need. Contact the BE local coordinator, Nick Padilla, at email@example.com.
To attend the CBE workshop, you must choose a Gathering attendance option that includes Early Arrival weekend. Gathering prices include housing, all meals and beverages, and regular Gathering programming, activities, and entertainment.
We encourage our regular Gathering attendees coming for Early Arrival to sign up for this workshop. Workshop participants coming only for the workshop may decide to stay on at The Gathering and upgrade to any of the regular Gathering attendance options.

Any workshop participant that decides to extend his stay beyond the weekend will be gladly accommodated, although it may be necessary to move to a different cabin. At any time after you register for The Gathering and before the end of the workshop, contact or visit the GNI Business Office (located on-site during The Gathering) to upgrade to a standard GNI membership and a longer attendance option.
