Kanamara Matsuri 1

Kanamara Matsuri, the first Sunday in April, in 2019 April 7

Doctors Robin Gorsline and Frank Dunn begin a conversation on the age old theme of phallos and worship noting that in modern Western society this is largely seen to be an aberration if not a downright sacrilege. Other cultures, such as Japan, pictured above, see it differently. The focus of this edition of Jonathan’s Circle Live, however, is not so much when and how this happens here and there in the world, but how we men today can unite phallic energy and deep worship. But what is “worship”? And what are some ways that we experience and deal with phallic energy? Do the two belong together, and if so, how? Come with your questions, curiosity, practices and experiences you want to share or ask about, as well as your challenges. As always, Jonathan’s Circle is a safe place to share and learn about dimensions of the sex-spirit connection that may well push our boundaries—or affirm deep instincts that ache to be acknowledged in a skeptical and sometimes hostile world. 

We hope you’ll be with us.

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

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.


                         StoneSong 2019 


Altar in Temple at Stonesong 2016 (ed)

July 10-14, 2019, take your place in a fellowship of erotically awakened, spiritually aware, open-hearted men. Together we'll celebrate the presence of the Sacred in our bodies and honor the desires that spring from the depths of our souls. We'll affirm our place in Creation amidst the natural beauty of western Maryland's rolling hills.

Awaken your body and spirit every morning with gentle movement and meditation. Speak and listen from the heart as we gather in sharing circles. Work together for an hour every afternoon caring for the forested land on which we gather. Find joy, generosity, and healing in mindful, respectfully structured erotic experiences with your fellow travellers. 

Add an extra day (Sunday afternoon, July 14, through midday Monday, July 15) and go even deeper into the experience of connecting sex and spirit.

StoneSong Nature and Awareness Center is situated outside Flintstone, Maryland, about two hours west of the District of Columbia.
