All living things are vulnerable to suffering. That is, vulnerable to what we humans call “suffering.” Not even inanimate things are free from entropy. The eternal processes of construction and destruction go on, changing everything sooner or later.  

We humans, however, are capable of understanding the complexity of suffering. We can recognize the difference between a relatively minor wound or a passing illness and prolonged suffering. Some people seem drawn to suffering, some confess that they are attracted to it, and some inflict suffering upon themselves.

Despite the complexity of suffering, or perhaps because of it, there is a nugget of truth within it. As philosopher Diogenes Allen once said, “Suffering is the only condition capable of cracking the human illusion of self-sufficiency.” Suffering is, or can be, the gateway to spiritual growth.  

Jonathan’s Circle Live in October will be a conversation not for those trying to be saints, but for any who have experienced or wondered about how woundedness, illness, a streak of real bad luck, grief, depression, sexual abuse or dysfunction, and the like, might be our teachers and guides into deeper awareness.  

Join us where it’s safe 

• to voice some of your own questions and experiences about suffering on the part of yourself or others 

• to hear what others have learned from their experiences of suffering

• to consider reframing what seems awfully negative in your life so that even unwanted imposters like guilt, shame, weakness, and pain can be gateways to growth.

Lord of the Dance 2

"Seeking the Profound:

 An Intimate Erotic Expedition Inward"

Seeking the Profound is an intimate, erotic expedition inward in the company of acommitted group of men; a journey to share and experience the Divine in each other.

Meeting on Wednesdays At 7:00-9:30 PM Eastern US Time (here is a link that will convert that to your time zone), the circle will convene bi-weekly beginning on September 8, and ending on December 15. Enrollment will be limited to 8 persons in addition to the two moderators.

Participants are asked to commit to being together for the duration of eight biweekly meetings ending on December 15  Each session will be 2.5 hours, and will include optional nudity, optional self-pleasuring, and open dialogue, co-moderated by Michael Kerosky and Frank Dunn. Between group sessions, participants will meet 1:1 focusing on the upcoming topic.  

The cost for the 8 sessions is $160. As always, our policy is to make our offerings available to any so that none is kept from attending by fees. If you wish to discuss financial assistance, Contact frank@jonathanscircle.

       • Wounds, memories, and healing
