Festival Theme and Intentions

The workshops and rituals of the festival weekend are focused on men’s spirituality and sexuality. They ensure that men meet themselves and each other in an environment where we can accept and support each other in who we are. We offer a place where men can connect and play with each other.

All workshops and rituals are given in English. For more information: www.ManToManifestation.com

The theme of the festival and focus of the workshops and rituals will be men’s spirituality and sexuality.

Our intention is to facilitate men meeting themselves and each other in a place of acceptance and support. Providing an environment where men can connect and play.

The festival is open to gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or straight men. All workshops and rituals will be given in English (although some of the workshop facilitators will be multi-lingual).

With this festival, we, the organizers, are trying to build a stronger and healthier gay community in Amsterdam. With less of a focus and need for going to bars or hooking up on internet apps and a greater focus on nourishing connections.

What to Wear and Bring

Wear comfortable clothes in which you can move freely and you may want to bring some dry clothes if you sweat a lot.

Also, please bring a large towel and a cushion and an exercise mat if you have one.

You are expected to arrive at the venue on-time, showered and clean

Nudity and Sex

Please note that, although some of the workshops may contain nudity, this is not an opportunity or invitation to have sex at the venue.

And at the same time, we embrace and celebrate our sensuality and sexuality!
