The Ask retreat is designed to give you a new framework from which you can process desire, pain, suffering, and pleasure.

Held within a tight and safe (enough) sacred container, Adam Nicholson and Corinne Diachuk will guide you on a journey through your body, mind, and soul so that you can leave a deeper level of discernment around what you want, why you are asking for it, and how to negotiate for it.

How do you know what you truly desire?

Do you ask for what you want or do you hope others will automatically know how to take care of you?

How do you discern between your surface-level wants and your soul-level desires?

Are you so attached to your wants that you fall into despair, depression, and suffering when you don’t get them?

For five days you will have the opportunity to delve into these questions.

You will experience growth through the Three-Minute Game, the Wheel of Consent, technical workshops in erotic touch, spiritual grounding based in tantric principles, and many, many embodied experiments.

The Ask retreat is going to push you to take a deeper dive into your body and how it is speaking to you.

Your body holds an immense amount of information and wisdom. And when you learn the language of your body, you can begin to clear the confusion in your head. Confusion creates so much suffering. But when we begin to ask ourselves the right questions, the confusion disappears.

At Ask, you will join other like-minded men to...

Gain discernment between your surface-level wants and soul-level desires

Learn how to ask for what you truly want

Understand why you are asking for it

Gain clarity around how your body is speaking to you

Learn how to say “no” and negotiate for what you want

We serve meat, usually in the form of beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and fish. A vegetarian option is also available at each meal; we ask that this be reserved for those who request vegetarian meals, as there is not enough of the vegetarian option prepared for everyone to eat.
