As women are called forth to heal, learn, rise, so, too are men.
Yet there are far less resources on bookshelves and in training centres for men. It’s a little like shopping for clothes, right?!
It is an honour and a joy to find myself in service to men.
Why men? Because I love men. Their focus, their drive, their strategizing; their honour, strength and precise minds. I love how they adventure and compete, how they team up and get shit done.
I’ve never been one to join the ranks of women who work like men. I honestly prefer to support from behind the scenes, or inspire from the stage or spotlight.
I have a passion for setting up men to win, especially to win with women; at home, at work and everywhere. For people to win with each other, beyond gender, in fact, which I think is the next wave of exciting learning just swelling. But first, we need to understand masculine men and feminine women a bit better; to provide the contrast that will help us when we get into the grey areas.
Today’s men watch women perform, sometimes, without knowing how they fit in. Doors held open or not? Offer to carry that heavy box or not? Pay for dinner or not?
You have watched women get harder, higher, more powerful…but maybe you have a feeling that something is being left behind? Lost?
I hope you do. Indeed if you do, I may be here for YOU.
As boys, many of you went without a very mothering mother. Perhaps she was at work, or maybe at school so she could get work…? And maybe you went without a very fathersome father. Perhaps he was even fearsome.
Divorce rates were on the rise, and family life got a little (to a lot) complicated over these last couple decades. Consumerism, coupled with the shifting of “community living,” meant… more scheduled games and less pick-up, more play dates and less calling on friends, more video games and less kick the can, less passing notes and more…dick pics.
Then, adulthood. From what I have heard from men, the pressure to look like you have “it” all together is great, and to look like you are on top of “it” is as great as for women. But many of you are thinking, “what the fuck is it to BE a man?” and “how the hell….?!”
I can’t pretend I know what, or how. I am, after all, a woman. But something I do know is…it is IN YOU. And I, from what I have seen and heard from men, can help you bring it out. I’m not all that clear how I do that. Some men tell me it’s that I am feminine, and smart. Some speak of authenticity, safety, space to be. Some have no idea, and no words.
What I know beyond any shadow of doubt is that the women and children of the world need YOU, men, to rise. To evolve, to awaken, and to be powerful…in ways that work. We need you as partners, as brothers and lovers, to build, with us, for us, a new world. Some of us get it, some of us don’t, but ALL of us need what YOU have to PROVIDE.
Let’s learn together, grow, heal, expand.
It will be awesome.
