Easton Mountain is a community, retreat center, and sanctuary for men who love men, created by gay men as a gift to the world. Its mission is to provide opportunities to celebrate, heal, transform, and integrate body, mind, and spirit, through workshops, programs and events.
Easton Mountain is located in the Hudson Valley, New York, in the midst of a beautiful secluded mountain landscape, on 170 acres of private land, with plenty of serene nature, forests, hills, and a beautiful lake at its center. It is a magical place - secluded and quiet, yet only 3 hours from New York City, Boston, and Montreal. Above all, Easton Mountain is a community - a fellowship of people connected to each other and the project - check out Easton Mountain’s website to learn more about their amazing history and programmes.
For the Festival, we will have the entire venue and the surrounding lands for ourselves, and the Easton Mountain and Tantra4GayMen teams will work together to create a space where you can be free, feel held, have lots of fun exploring Tantra with other loving men.
Easton Mountain offers all the amenities you could wish for a Tantra Festival. The Main Lodge is the center of activity. It has a main workshop space with a fireplace and hardwood floors; an indoor dining hall; additional meeting space to socialize; a spa area; and a terrace and outdoor pool. Nearby, The Temple is an interfaith sanctuary sitting directly by the lake, with lovely views of the water, and is perfect for rituals, workshops and meditation. Other buildings include the charming Guest House and the beautiful Garden Cabin, both home to guests’ accommodation. There is plenty of space for camping around, and plenty of nature which you can explore on numerous hiking trails.
