Uncovering The Sacred: Healing The Masculine For All Genders
March 2nd 6:30pm New Renaissance Bookstore We are at a dramatic moment in our collective experience of sex and gender. The line between man and woman are blurring rapidly, and yet along that line discord and harm remain prevalent, if not increasing. Research shows that males in the U.S. are more likely to be diagnosed with a behavior disorder, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives. How do we support our loved ones and ourselves? How do we take off or disrupt the dangerous mask of masculinity? And finally how do we create room for a healthy, more authentic masculinity to flourish? In this interactive workshop we will examine the experience of men and masculine people. We will explore the particular challenges of being raised and living as male in this culture, and what we can do to hold each other and ourselves well through some of these challenges. We will also practice somatic skills designed to support in masculine healing and gender balancing. I offer this workshop not as a replacement, but in solidarity and collaboration with all those who are doing great important work for/with women and feminine people. This workshop is open to people of all genders.
