Introducing "Spring Fling" - a new weekend intro to the Bear Your Soul community 

Over the last 6 years, Bear Your Soul has grown into a brotherhood of over 200 men who have learned, shared and grown together. Now we take another step as we add a new Spring event, with new ideas, new energy, and a new leadership team. Spring Fling is a shorter introductory weekend celebrating men of all colors, shapes & sizes!  READ MORE ABOUT THE EVENT AND MEET THE LEADERSHIP TEAM BELOW!
Spring Fling is an introductory weekend celebrating men of all colors, shapes & sizes! Like most Bear events, we have great food, dance parties, hot tub, sauna, and socializing, but we also focus on helping guys connect more deeply, with exciting workshops, discussion, and activities designed to help you connect more deeply with yourself and your brothers!

  • Loving Our Bear Bodies:   An experience of touch, affirmation & connection that will leave you feeling more empowered and comfortable in your own skin
  • Coffeehouse:  An informal salon where you can sing, dance, read poetry, do stand-up or whatever you want to share with the group!
  • Green Man Dance Party:  Welcome the Green Man of Spring by dancing your ass off at “Club Cub”
  • Cupcake Making! Get your bake on and share your creations at the Coffeehouse!
  • Scavenger Hunt:  A chance to get outside, enjoy the weather, and grounds at Easton Mountain, as your team follows the clues to find the prizes!

This will also be the first Bear Your Soul event to be hosted by a new team of next-generation leaders, who come from within the Bear Your Soul community!


A message from your hosts:

As your hosts, we want to bring you to a bear event unlike any other!  We are so excited to help you learn more about yourself, grow, and meet wonderful new people! This weekend, we will give you a glimpse into the brotherhood and acceptance of the BYS community. We hope that you will find your niche, and a space to be your authentic self as many of us have! This unique community has enabled us to create strong and lasting bonds with men who have become our dearest family and friends!    – Jon, Erik and Dave
