Appreciation Circle

Joseph KramerThis is our 40th Anniversary month and my appreciation for this month goes to Joseph Kramer. Joseph is the Johnny Appleseed of sacred eroticism. He planted the seed of the Body Electric School in the Bay Area 40 years ago this month. Giving us all the gift of transformation and liberation that this school has been for so many. I just this weekend got another testimonial from an alumnus that said, “the Body Electric saved my life.” That is not so hard to imagine in today’s world of separation and isolation only made worse by COVID 19.

There are so many branches from the Body Electric Tree and Joseph continues to plant as he touches live through his Sexological Bodywork and other new workshops he continues to create. Many people have grown from his plantings and have gone on to help others.  The name Sacred Intimate and the training he developed to help people help others, is yet another immeasurable facet of his work.40thWhiteBG

I am still appreciative of Joseph’s work with men with HIV AIDS in the desperate days when it seemed most of society was ignoring the death and suffering, Joseph went to minister to them. Helping them find their bodies and love themselves again. I was chatting with him about how COVID has had a similar effect as the AIDS Crisis as so many lost intimacy and have grown to fear their own bodies. Joseph has been generous with his time for me and the school.  He continues to nurture the tree he planted 40 years ago and will be at our 40th Anniversary Gala in Palm Springs.  And there is more to come!
