Who we are

We are a small group of dedicated volunteers who have committed to bring to Seattle a weekend festival celebrating spirit, queer sexuality, and heart-centered connections.



The Menbodied Institute is the proud sponsor of the first-ever Arouse Festival. The mission of the Menbodied Institute is to inspire men to create healthy, open-hearted embodied intimate connections with themselves and their partners.  Founded by Lui Gervais, the Menbodied Institute offers innovative, transformational workshops as well as private, intimacy coaching sessions on Capitol Hill in Seattle.
