Doctors Robin Gorsline and Frank Dunn convene Jonathan’s Circle Live with a conversation about desire. Desire figures prominently in spiritual life, whether it is seen as positive or negative. Longing, yearning, hoping are all shades of desiring and they all feed the fires of sexual passion.  Join us with your own desires and discover some fresh ways of living with and expressing desire, a lively place where spirit and sex come together. 

To join the conversation

  • pay whatever you can of the suggested fee ($15) [payment and other donations can be made here] 
  • register 
  • familiarize yourself with Google Hangouts [this site may help]
  • have a webcam and working microphone
  • you'll get a link by email at least an hour before the conversation begins
  • hit the link when you get it and join us

It is our purpose to make all our events accessible to all men, excluding none for lack of funds. Give as you are able, and make it possible for someone else to participate. Tax deductible donations may always be made on our home page in the side bar.

Weekend Events

Our most recent weekend event took place in Virginia in April with nine men together Friday night through Sunday midday.  “Death and Rebirth in the Godbody and Your Body” was the theme, focusing on how the rites of spring such as Passover, Easter, Vernal Equinox, Beltane, and the Cherokee First New Moon festival all celebrate realities that we experience in our bodies, and particularly in our erotic expressions.  More weekend events are planned for 2019.  Keep connected (see the bottom of this page) to learn and plan.                                        

Training for Facilitators

Training for facilitators is offered periodically in different locations around the country. If you are interested in being trained to facilitate any of our meet-ups, brotherhood circles, retreats, or events, let us know.


Dates for camping trips will be posted in the spring of 2018. Organize your own with Jonathan’s Circle brothers and let us know. We’ll advertise it here, though we don’t officially sponsor it.  

Brotherhood Circles

Brotherhood circles are ongoing small groups that last between four and twelve months. For “meet-ups” in Washington and Los Angeles, see below.

If you are interested in organizing a circle, or if you would like to work with a small group (1-2 persons) in your area to plan an event such as a non-residential Saturday or Friday evening-Saturday event, be in touch with us.    


Under the auspices of, a worldwide network of affinity groups of all sorts, Jonathan’s Circle has meet-ups currently in Washington, DC,  Los Angeles, and Fresno, CA.   Become a member of and join us. Meet-ups are one-off circles in that they always consist of small groups of men who belong to our meet-up group, but each meeting is on a distinct theme and the group is always “new.” In contrast, men in our brotherhood circles commit to meet over a period of 4 to 12 months.
