Introducing "Spring Fling" - a new weekend intro to the Bear Your Soul community
Over the last 6 years, BYS has grown into a brotherhood of over 300 men who have learned, shared and grown together. Now we take another step as we add a new Spring event, with new ideas, new energy, and a new leadership team. Spring Fling is a shorter introductory weekend celebrating men of all colors, shapes & sizes!
READ MORE ABOUT THE EVENT AND MEET THE LEADERSHIP TEAM BELOW!
This shorter event is designed to attract newcomers to our community and to give alumni another chance to get together with a shorter time commitment. We want our alumni to help us create this experience for new people, so we are making a special offer:
Bring a Newbie and you BOTH get the low newbie rate of:
includes a bed in the Garden Cabin or Quad. (Best available) (You and your friend should go ahead and each book at the Newbie rate. You will be asked for their name when booking)
Like most Bear Your Soul events, we will have great food, dance parties, hot tub, sauna, exciting workshops, discussions, and activities with that special BYS touch to help you connect more deeply with yourself and your brothers!
We are continuing to confirm more workshops and activities but here are just a few of the things you can look forward to:
Loving Our Bear Bodies: An experience of touch, affirmation & connection that will leave you feeling more empowered and comfortable in your own skin
Coffeehouse: An informal salon where you can sing, dance, read poetry, do stand-up or whatever you want to share with the group!
Green Man Dance Party: Welcome the Green Man of Spring by dancing your ass off at “Club Cub”
Cupcake Making! Get your bake on and share your creations at the Coffeehouse!
Scavenger Hunt: A chance to get outside, enjoy the weather, and grounds at Easton Mountain, as your team follows the clues to find the prizes!
This will also be the first Bear Your Soul event to be hosted by a new team of next-generation leaders, who come from within the Bear Your Soul community!
MEET THE TEAM!
