Essence of Men

  2. Navigate your current transition
  3. Discover the sacred and healing well of men’s wisdom
  4. Take responsibility for your life so that the world can meet you
  5. Live in touch with your heart and intuition
  6. Be fully present in relationship with your loved ones
  7. Explore the deepest themes that define us as men

The language of archetypes and the soul

In Essence of Men you will take your self listening skills to another level and integrate the latent powers of your shadow side. We extend the language of emotion and continue to turn our attention inwards through the language of imagination using metaphor, story, symbol, intuition, poetry and sacred space. This work is bound to extend your sense of what is possible in your life.

Just as there are personal metaphors that inform your life, there are shared metaphors that are common to men. These are archetypes which can be thought of as deep organising structures of your psyche.; You will awaken connection with a number of these masculine archetypes and learn ways to integrate and ground the energy to support your life. The inspiring processes enable you to focus and navigate your intentions into reality.

Give yourself this breathing space to gently close the gap between who people “think” you are and who you really are at the deepest level. Slow down, turn inwards and connect deeply with your inner wisdom and strength.
