I believe we all crave the deepest forms of romantic and sexual intimacy. We want to experience love that is pure and unconditional. We want to worship those we love and we want to be worshipped in return. I believe we innately want to be able to share what is true in our hearts and be met with compassion and understanding, without being made wrong or told we need to change. I believe we want sex that blows open our hearts and makes us grateful to be alive.
The problem is not our desire to love well, nor our innate capacity to make it real. The reason we struggle is that people know that they want these things, even if they aren’t quite sure how to name them. Very few of us were taught how to create and sustain this type of sexual intimacy. We were sold the myth that beautiful connection just happens. Great sex is a result of natural attraction with the right person. Find the one, and your life will be a never-ending collage of vacations, intimate moments, beautiful children and mutual success.
HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY
For the better part of a decade, John Wineland, an LA-based men's group facilitator, speaker and teacher has been guiding both men and women in the realms of life purpose, relational communication, sexual intimacy and embodiment.
Known for his groundbreaking work with men, John travels world-wide teaching his vision of embodied men's work and deep relational practice. In 2014, he founded The New Men’s Work Project, which has attracted men from around the world looking to develop as leaders in their relationships and communities. The Project is committed to the staggering goal of creating 1000 men's groups worldwide in the next ten years and has already supported trainings and groups throughout Europe and the U.S. John's clients include entrepreneurs, leading thinkers in the world of personal development and entertainment, Ted speakers and creative leaders in Hollywood.
John brings a multi-faceted approach, which is both energetic and highly practical, to his workshops and experiential coaching sessions. John's embodiment-driven teaching draws from not only over 30 years experience of his own Buddhist meditative practice, but from 10 years intensive study and practice with renowned Yogic Intimacy teacher, David Deida. Drawing from Deida's revolutionary framework, as well as the deep lineages of Vajrayana, Tantra, Kundalini yoga, Taoist and Iron Shirt Qigong traditions, John seeks to create a profound experience for men and women longing to express their deepest desires with open, fierce and loving hearts.
John's work has been featured on multiple podcast and publications; including Zen Habits, The Elephant Journal, Sex with Emily, Man Talks, The Good Men Project and Love TV. John's first book, The Art of Masculine Leadership, will be available in the fall.
