Michael Sigmann, Founding Facilitator of the MIJ, Palm Springs, CA
After facilitating the MIJ for 20 years, Michael's insight into the hearts and minds of gay men, is revolutionary. As the VP for large medical company in Chicago, Michael ended his 15-year career in 1993 when he moved San Francisco to begin working in the field of transformation. Under the guidance of his long-time mentor and friend Michael Schiesser, Michael became skilled in the art of facilitation, able to lead individuals and groups through emotionally cleansing, potentially life altering experiences. Michael teaches us how to be present, by teaching us how to know when we're not present, so we can begin to understand why.

R. has been a licensed Somatica practitioner since 2011 working with individuals and couples around issues of intimacy, sexuality and relationships.
