Body Electric Workshop


The Gathering
in The Poconos
August 20 – 29, 2021

GNI is once again offering the Celebrating the Body Erotic (CBE) introductory workshop by The Body Electric School during the Early Arrival weekend (August 20 – 22, 2021). We’ve offered CBE during the past six 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.
Watch the CBE video clip on the Body Electric homepage or on YouTube.

CBE is a great way to begin your Gathering. The CBE workshop will be held on Early Arrival weekend, from Friday to Sunday, August 20 – 22, 2021. 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 August 20 with a commitment to attending the entire workshop. It will be an experience you will never forget!
The course will be led by TBD, Body Electric Faculty Member.
The class size is limited, so please sign up as soon as possible. This workshop has filled to capacity in the past.
The workshop tuition is separate from The Gathering registration fee, and GNI members qualify for a discounted tuition of $TBD (10% off until Aug. 2 then $TBD after). A $40 annual membership to GNI is required to attend this event.
Some tuition assistance may be available based on need. Contact the BE local coordinator, Nick Padilla, at
To attend the CBE workshop, you must choose a Gathering attendance option that includes Early Arrival weekend.
