About the Leader

Eric Diamond, PhD – Eric is a psychotherapist with 30 years of experience; graduate of the Bioenergetics Training Program; Training Leader in Bioenergetic Therapy; Founder and Director of the Gainesville Men’s Center; and co-leader of the Exploring the Masculine Men’s Retreats. He is also a husband, father, musician and creator of “evocative, complex, and amusing” poetry which was recently published in a collection entitled Strange Frontier.


Eric has experienced, studied and taught Bioenergetics with Bob Glazer and the superb faculty of the FSBA for decades. His encounter with the Men's Movement was through the Gainesville Mens' Council in the 1980's. He began his Monday Night Men's group 22 years ago in addition to attending many life-changing men's gatherings with such leaders as Robert Bly, John Lee, Robert Moore. Eric is an initiate and an active member of the Mankind Project. With two co-leaders, he developed the Exploring the Masculine Men's Retreats which combines story, ritual, drumming, intensive therapeutic work while forming a community of brothers. 


About the Workshop

Bioenergetics is a powerful approach to change, to growth, and to Life itself. It weaves emotional release and unblocks holding patterns with a sophisticated understanding of psychodynamics, character, and inner conflict.


This weekend retreat will combine Bioenergetics and Men’s work. Men’s Work is built on truth-telling and brotherhood in safe settings, enhanced by the wisdom in mythic stories and energized by transformative experiences using the power of group support and challenge. Every man will have the opportunity to go deeply into what he is seeking and have support to let go of burdens and fears. Eric will also bring in expressive men’s work, including story, poetry, and drumming. Each man will have the opportunity to have focused work to meet his own needs, and the chance to give his gifts to other men.


This workshop will offer…

Bioenergetic experiences
Group activities
Expressing and releasing anger and grief
Facing fear

…in a place of brotherhood, acceptance and safety.
