This six week course is an invitation into an experience of a new masculinity that transcends and includes the story of manhood we’ve inherited.
Delving into wisdom traditions, myth and archetype as well as modern psychology, psychotherapy and developmental theory expect an embodied experience of a new masculinity, one which gives space for all of who we are in body, heart, mind and spirit.
The course will bring together a group of courageous open-hearted men to weave a new story of manhood. The space will be held lightly with clarity and vulnerability to allow us each to experience the loving support of other men and the depths within ourselves that this support allows us to explore.
★★★★★ - “I signed-up to Conor's Men's Circle 4-Week Closed Group entirely on impulse after a friend made a recommendation of it; one of the very best decisions I ever made!” - John
WHY THIS COURSE:
This course is designed to shift the overly restrictive narratives of manhood that have been given to us without abandoning that which we want to celebrate in the existing paradigm.
As a closed group creating a supportive container we will rewrite the story of masculinity. The bonds between the men on the course will give us support and encouragement to go where we need to go.
You will leave with a group of friends and brothers who have been on a shared journey.
★★★★★ - “It was really humbling to be in a space of caring and reflective men, and I was so pleased to be in a space which developed an aspiration for masculinity which is both empowering and full of integrity” - Dan
WEEK I - METAMODERN MANHOOD: LOVE OF THE TRUTH - we will explore how we can recognise that our view is partial, step into the unknown and come out the other side with a humility about what we don’t know and a clarity about what we can know through experience.
WEEK II - OBSTACLES ON THE HERO’S JOURNEY - using the hero’s journey as a structure we will explore barriers like shame, fear, depression and anxiety which we experience as we move towards greater intimacy with ourselves and the world we live in.
WEEK III - JUNGIAN ANIMA & ANIMUS - we will look into Jung’s models of the unconscious feminine (anima) and masculine (animus) and the insights we can draw about our own experience.
WEEK IV - MASCULINE SHADOW AND INTEGRITY - we will explore the immature and mature elements of masculinity and how to grow our awareness of the shadow and move towards greater integrity.
WEEK V - FEMININE SHADOW AND FLOW - we take a look at how we have been relating to our internal feminine with its shadow and its flow and how that relates to our relationship with the external feminine: as within so without.
WEEK VI - THE MORE INTEGRATED MASCULINE - we will integrate our learnings from the previous weeks and take a new vision of manhood forward into our lives.
