Men’s Work

 

Men’s Work is what we do during our weekly meetings in our groups of 6-8 men.  Our intention is to be good men and to feel free to be ourselves and speak truth, and that’s what we do in group. Bringing this intention to our lives is where it gets tricky, for lots of reasons.  Reasons we explore with each other, with men in similar situations who have been disconnected from this valuable resource.  In some extreme cases, we have lost our identity as men and have relied on social expectations to redefine how we should think and feel.  We gather in our circles to reclaim our identity as men and to figure out how to express that in our lives.  We become aware of the many and often opposing set of skills we must apply to succeed at the various roles we must perform.  Roles that have us as vacillating between warrior, lover, magician, king and magician.  We leave Men’s Work with greater Clarity and Confidence to perform each role with more Compassion and Connection with others.  We learn to manage our lives from the inside out.
