Event Details

Sharing Real Touch:
Nurturing Connection to Yourself and Others


Connect more deeply with your own body through mindful touch – so that you can connect more authentically with others. Bob Pileggi, facilitator of the upcoming Men Need Real Touch retreat (October 11-13, 2013), will guide us through a nurturing, rejuvenating, and compassionate experience of connecting with the gift of your own body.  

Bob combines mindfulness meditation techniques (clinically proven to reduce stress, anxiety, depression and a host of other challenges) with the art of intentional touch to provide an experience that you can use on your own any time you want to feel more connection – or when you want to share authentic touch with others. We’ll discuss how we can break the cycles of hurtful thoughts that keep us from truly appreciating and being present to our own bodies. Begin cultivating compassion toward your body – and learn how to share that with others through Real Touch.


In this free teleclass, you'll:

  • connect deeply with your own body
  • practice mindfulness and learn how it can increase connection to yourself and others
  • share experiences with others on the call as we support one another in connecting authentically.



This is a free introduction to the residential retreat:

Men Need Real Touch: The Art of Authentic Connection.

About the Facilitators

Bob PileggiBob Pileggi facilitates our whole-hearted presence to the gifts of life and each other.  We can easily get caught in the world’s fast pace and drama, leading us to feel anxious, overwhelmed, disconnected or poorly about ourselves. Experiences with Bob foster our innate capacity to nurture our own ease of well-being - empowering self-awareness, authentic self-expression, and compassionate connection with others. Bob offers us the skills of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga to help us reclaim and fully experience life through our whole being - body, mind, heart, spirit and relationships.


Bob has facilitated numerous workshops, rituals and retreats. He brings to his work 20 years of experience with LGBT, HIV/AIDS and women's civil rights organizing and public education at local and national organizations. His photography, focusing on related topics, has been published nationally, including The New York Times.


In Bob’s 15 year journey of learning how to show up fully, gratefully and powerfully in this gift of life (while learning to navigate anxiety and body image issues), he has trained to become a facilitator, mindfulness instructor, spiritual practice coach, ordained interfaith minister, certified yoga instructor and breathwork practitioner, and licensed bodyworker.
