The Wildwood Conservation Foundation and Retreat Center in Guerneville, Calif. has been an oasis for members of the LGBT community since the late 1960s. Today, the retreat center welcomes all individuals and groups in agreement with the values of our community: 
    - welcoming diversity in age, sexual and ethnic identity, and level of mobility
    - facilitating the expression of love, intimacy and the integration of mind, body and spirit
    - providing an environment for connecting with nature, with spirit and each other.
    - demonstrating by example the promotion of positive change in the world.

To that end it is the dedicated team of resident volunteers that help Wildwood meet these goals. We have opportunities available for two, three and six month stays. Volunteers receive room and meals in exchange for 30 hours per week. We also encourage volunteers to pursue a personal or professional goal while at Wildwood, taking advantage of the nurturing environment for growth and transformation. Our volunteers participate in cooking, housekeeping, maintenance, gardening, nature conservation, cleaning and guest services.

If you are considering a sabbatical in a natural setting this may be an opportunity for you.

Tony, Yes, this is my Wildwood. I wanted to spend a few months up there myself, but it was before they had staff housing - and I wasn't about to live in a tent. Since then they have built staff quarters but I've got my hands full with Positive Being, although I do serve on the Wildwood Board of Directors. It's a great place - I was just there for my birthday. It was so warm (in January) that I could sunbathe nude in the afternoons. Same was true for last year on my birthday; it must be the Wildwood equivalent of a January thaw.

Have you ever been there? I can't remember if you did a Body Electric thing there or not. It's worth checking out. Member weekends there are pretty reasonable (enough so that even I can afford them). Besides the place, though, the draw for me is the men. There's a certain type of open-hearted guy that goes to Wildwood events. I don't feel plagued by social anxiety there because I know I can just sit down or walk up to anyone and they'll treat me with respect and kindness - some more than others, (newcomers can take a while to "get it) but overall I feel way more comfortable there than I do out and about in San Francisco - not that I get out and about much anymore. I've been isolating lately, which I know is not healthy, but mingling seems such a chore (or a bore) these days. It doesn't help that I'm good at entertaining myself. I listen to books, watch movies, work on my recording project, write in my journal, etc.) Of course, all those things would be nice to do with a special someone, but trying to find that someone can be exhausting. I'm on a hiatus from even trying.

The good news is that my health is good, my spirits are (mostly) good, and I'm back to the gym, trying to muscle up before I make another attempt at husband-hunting. Staying in has one advantage - I don't spend any money. Somehow, incredible to even me, I've managed to save up enough for a trip to France. I'll be staying with my old friends in Normandy, so no hotel or food bills, and a found a

I enjoy supporting GBTQ men in their exploration of authentic masculinity. It starts here: https://www.facebook.com/events/422984204501862/#gay, #gbtq, #masculinity

Why remember dreams? They are the viral videos from parts of you that know some things you don't.
