Loving Men at New Year '18

Loving Men’s reguar New Year’s event

Buckland Hall, Brecon Beacons, Wales

 

We hope to give a flavour of last year’s event here. Details of LM@NY18 will be posted later in the year, when on-line booking will open.

 

Loving Men at New Year is a celebration. There are lots of activities, including a host of optional workshops to join in - on themes that help you make connections, explore intimacy, have some fun, step outside of your comfort zone and reflect on your year. Click here to see more details about a previous year's event.

There's also fantastic countryside to explore and delicious vegetarian food will be served throughout the event.

Last year there were more than 80 loving men present, spanning five decades in age. We had a wild, tender, meaningful, and fun time.

LM@NY takes place at Buckland Hall, a spectacular country house, set in the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales. Think open fires, comfortable sofas, beautiful meeting spaces, and wide open views of our very own Welsh valley from every window.

 

Last year's theme

The theme of the event last year was Truth or Dare: Exploring Authenticity and Honesty in Relationships..

Social etiquette teaches us an endless list of shoulds and shouldn'ts about how to be in the company of others - so most of us have a hyper-vigilant internal judge monitoring everything we do. Yet most people crave relationships where we can truly be ourselves - free to share our feelings, thoughts and impulses as they come up in us, in a relaxed atmosphere where we know we will not be judged, mocked or criticised for who we are. Finding this quality of connection with others is rare - and often difficult. We'll explore the joys, pitfalls and skills involved in being honest and authentic in our personal relationships with friend and lovers, through a variety of workshops and other activities at the event.

 

Booking:

Last year’s event was fully-booked in October, so we recommend booking early. We announce when bookings are open in our email newsletters. You can join our Mailing List to receive them.

 

Bursary Fund:

Assistance for men on low incomes may be available from the Bursary Fund.

Such a good way to see the old year out and the New Year in. It has set me up so well for the year to come.
