In a wooded glade somewhere near San Francisco, The Workshop challenges the rules of modern society by pushing all boundaries of normal convention - especially the sexual ones! A group of people agree to take part in a 10-day workshop led by spiritual leader Paul Lowe in their search for a higher personal truth. On day one they are told to introduce themselves and meet everyone else - completely naked!

Searing emotional honesty, full nudity, experiments and sexuality and the exorcising of inner demons are the hallmarks of this groundbreaking and provocative documentary. Enlightenment achieved maybe. But definitely the naked truth.

Educational Reviews

"Recommended for academic human sexuality studies, this is also a strong optional purchase for more adventurous public library collections." *** Recommended Video Librarian

Critical Acclaim

One of the most talked about films at the [2007] Tribeca Film Festival. An extraordinarily frank and thought-provoking sexual odyssey which, with the right exposure and a healthy pinch of salt, could be a zeitgeist, talking-point film along the lines of What the Bleep Do We Know or Shortbus.
-Mike Goodridge, Screen International

The breakdown of convention is a wild ride, as Morgan chronicles love triangles, couples struggling with monogamy and a gay man having sex with a woman for the first time-all on camera. Jealousy, both emotional and physical, erupts within the flock. It is an amusing and emotional adventure in sex, love, betrayal, fear and joy until the workshop ends.
- Aaron Krach, Tribeca Film
