All forms of quest and masculine spirituality make it clear that a man’s journey into his centre is a necessary passage to initiate him into the power that he will need for living in the world. For a man to be made whole there has to be something that rips him wide open, a wound that allows his soul to enter.
Men today say they are troubled by many problems. They try hard to be masculine, only to feel completely disconnected from who they really are.
This seminar, lead by Paul Blackburn, creates an atmosphere of trust, in which each man can discuss his journey into manhood, tell stories of his childhood, perform the ‘rituals’ he has concluded are his, and celebrate the journey.
Participants in Manhood will live in the bush for several days, while they explore the steps that lead to a fulfilling life as a man.
Make peace with your father
Like it or not, your spirit remains deeply rooted in this first demonstration of what it means to be a man (or lack thereof).
Embrace your sexuality
Until you are able to rejoice in the masculinity into which you have been born, it will be a hindrance to your soul’s expression. Learn the role your masculine energy plays.
Meet women as equals
Soft men get left, and bullies drive their partners away. We need to learn how to create a safe environment in order to argue passionately and fiercely, without dishonouring our partner. This means respecting your partner but respecting yourself also. Today’s man has to learn to communicate.
Connect as a father to your children
Much of a man’s sense of himself as ‘good’ is derived from his ability to protect, teach, and love his children. Men will wait their entire life to discover whether their children love and respect them.
Develop real male friends
Men need to relate to other men by sharing openly in order to give and receive emotional support for the transitions required on the journey to manhood.
A man needs to expend his effort on work that has work and substance. It isn’t enough just to make a living. The factories and office buildings have stolen his spirit by turning him into a faceless number.
Free the spirit
Every man needs to find the base for his spirit in nature. He needs to connect to the living earth, honouring it as his source and sustaining it by nurturing it.
Find within you the power you need to triumph over your life’s challenges, to make your family safe and secure, and to lead with real inner strength and peace.
After undertaking coaching training with Beyond Success six years ago, today I’m running my own successful life, business and property coaching entity. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Beyond Success supported me every step of the way with the ‘how to’ of setting up a coaching business. But most of all, Beyond Success’ boot camps helped me to uncover my own emotional intelligence. These days, I present my own workshops concurrently with my one-on-one coaching, and as I watch my business grow, my income stream is a very different story to what it was before I started coaching. Every step of the way, Beyond Success has supported me, and still continues to do so as I explore new territories and boundaries with confidence and excitement.Jill McIntyre
