Experience what many men have called a "Life-changing" workshop. Through a series of exercises, Freddy Freeman (and his assistants) will guide you in helping participants to shed clothing, let go of shame and be truly vulnerable. Participants will share affirmative intimate touch, honor each other’s bodies and give & receive erotic energy. While the workshop can be very sexy and arousing, it is not a sex party! The goal of LOBB is to empower one another to feel more comfortable in our own skin. It is the cornerstone workshop at Bear Your Soul retreats at Easton Mountain. All participants must be willing to be undressed and to exchange affirmative touch with the other men in the workshop.

Loving Our Bear Bodies is an experience of group affirmation, sensuality, and appreciation. We create a safe environment for men to let their guard down and connect more deeply. This requires us to help one another shed our clothing and to witness one another, to let go of our shame and be truly vulnerable. I then guide us into sharing of affirmative intimate touch, honoring each other’s bodies and claiming our pleasure. We give and receive erotic energy, but it is not a sex party. It can be very sexy and arousing but our goal is to empower one another. Participants are asked to set their own boundaries, yet challenge their comfort zones in an atmosphere of mutual respect. It is designed to leave you feeling more empowered and supported by your brothers. By the end of the session hopefully we will feel more comfortable in our own skin and will have formed a tribal bond that we will carry with us when the session is done.” - Freddy Freeman - Facilitator of Loving Our Bear Bodies


Come, drop into bliss while focusing on breath, connection and energy by cuddling! You will be guided through different cuddling asanas (poses) that will allow you go really deep! This is about touching and connecting intimately without the anticipation of sex, to be able to be sensual not necessarily sexual. Get ready to feel the magic of the Bear Soul Hug.
