Growing up male in today's society comes with it's unique problems.

About this Event

Through male socialisation, society provides specific ideas of what being male means:strong, taciturn, stoic, immutable. Emotional literacy and vulnerability is not on the list. Men want intimacy just like anyone else, they long for it, but they are taught that if they are vulnerable they are not men.There's this cultural expectation that is innately traumatising. Wounded little boys that then become grown men that keep the curtain drawn, and the rules are very clear: as a man... that I deal with my insecurities, I deal with my fears, my anxieties, my sense of loneliness, my uncertainty, all of that I deal with on my own because that’s what a real man does. A real man makes it on his own. He doesn’t burden people with his problems. That’s what women do. That’s what sissies do. That’s what weak men do. You figure it out. The cost of this is high: male suicides in society is at an all time high.

Until these rules can be unpicked and broken down and have men understand that there’s strength in being able to reach out to other people; that we’re all born for intimacy; we are pack animals; and there’s ways in which we become stronger and better people when we can make connections with other people and let people into our lives. That’s not weakness; that’s wisdom. As we move into the future, we're moving into a connection economy, a service economy, where relationships are essential to being a fit individual.The conversation has to start in discussing how to cultivate a different kind of masculinity that’s not so rigid and narrow that leaves men alone and armoured and with masks on.

As an Intuitive Healing Coach I work with balancing male and female energies,so I have a real interest in running this free online event and inviting both men and women to engage in an open conversation about men and their roles in society and how it affects both sexes.

•What does it mean to be a good man?Confident,embodied masculinity versus traditional, toxic masculinity?

•The high cost paid for the pervasive polarised male roles in society, and what can be done to change them.

•The role women can play in helping men change,as mothers, wives, sisters,friends etc...

A new generation of men are discovering who they are and finding new ways to express themselves.
