Few of us would likely look at the above photo and find it either enticing on the one hand or disgusting on the other.  We’d likely have a variety of views ranging from delight to “yuck!” But there are other images on which we’d be less divided. It’s exactly such images that the advertising industry uses so effectively to appeal to mass markets.  

Pleasure is not the only thing that motivates us, but it is huge. That is true for all organisms.  There are pleasure centers in our brains that process and store sensory experiences that we have evolved to reproduce if we can. The growing research of neuroscience reveals both that pleasure goes hand in hand with a personal sense of well-being and  that there is such a thing as maxxing out on pleasure.  

The reason why we’re taking a look at this rich area is obvious: pleasure is a key issue in sexual life (and sensory life in general) and also a hot button topic in spiritualities as well. Human beings have a history of not being entirely clear on just what the dynamics of pleasure are—hence the conflicted notions and feelings about pleasure itself. Does it enhance growth, impede growth, or both? If there is a “golden mean” between too little pleasure and too much, how is that middle ground discovery, and how is it important to overall well-being?

Join us and

• take a look at what gives you pleasure and what robs you of it

• enjoy the opportunity of discussing frankly a topic that touches all men yet rarely is discussed on a personal, intimate level

• gather some tools that will help you discern better how to navigate a culture that constantly teases us to go after more pleasure and very, very rarely discusses the limits of pleasure without becoming judgmental about it.

Brotherhood Circles 

FULL with Wait List

                     New Circle Online in September, 2021

Lord of the Dance 2

"Seeking the Profound:

 An Intimate Erotic Expedition Inward"

Do you have a longing desire to be known? To be seen for who you really are? Would you like an experience with other men where you could be yourself, and empower other men to do the same? 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.

Topics for the eight sessions

       • Who am I?

       • My erotic life

       • My spiritual life

       • Secrets, shame, and privacy

       • Wounds, memories, and healing

       • Mentors, teachers, and models

       • My gifts to the world

       • My lessons and my wisdom

This will be the second online circle offered in 2021.  There is already a wait list in response to previous announcements in Circling.  No one has yet officially reigstered, so register today.  When eight people have registered, others will be placed on a wait list.  Those on the wait list will be given priority in circles following this one.

Register here.
