Men’s Circle online-only option

November 18, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

In modern life there is currently a great rebalancing from many years of male dominance, which leaves men and man today in a much less secure and happy position than media would have us believe – many men are living without support and friendship for their inner lives and struggling as much as ever with outer changes.
A 90 minute mens circle – a place to explore, share, listen, support, learn will not solve but does support men in facing the utter craziness and relentlessness of modern life from a place of integrity to our beingness.  We find that a willingness to be vulnerable, which is viscerally feared and avoided by most men, is actually our greatest strength.
Exploring Radical Authenticity – and variations of this – is my calling as a mens group leader
This is an experiment, meeting both in person near Stroud OR online for those who live at great distance or abroad, with full participation in a single circle at the same time, (making this work for us all technically will be facilitated by a dear friend and techie genius). Those living at reasonable distance must attend both the Most Intimate Most Intimate Day and this evening event.
Physical presence as a circle is the best – feeling the bond, but taking part online can I believe be a great substitute for those living further away.  I urge men I know and those that are interested to join us.

Felix and Philip talk about a mens event

Full details will be sent via email after booking, and the circle meets at 5:30pm till 7pm, after the Most Intimate gathering.
Some further thoughts are below and you could also look at my guest blog post here
This evening circle is booked at the same time* as The Most Intimate Day, unless you live a  great distance away

Being authentic or as I often like to refer to it .. being real, is simultaneously perhaps the most significant, powerful, scary, transformative, hardest “choice” any human being can make, and it holds particular significance for men since male (archetype) is by nature more involved in the outer world than female (for whom love and loving are the essence).

Being real is also potentially damaging, confusing, utterly impossible “choices” a man can make, for example – real to what? What happens when your realness does not align with those you meet in society or those close to you.

I suggest that the lack of ‘realness’ can be seen as the biggest underlying cause of the worlds ills – but there is of course a danger in even saying that – Secret Garden is emphatically not on a mission to change the world.

  • If you are not living locally, there is an option for men who live a long distance away to book the Mens Online event separately. Go to Book Now
