I just finished leading the 2nd weekend of my six month Men’s Leadership Training. Holy shit was it outstanding!!!
I had my mentor David Cates come in and serve us all up around the theme of sexuality. I had about 12 men who assisted me in pulling this off, four were participants from last year’s training. Eight powerful women also came to help us work through some serious masculine feminine dynamics.
The weekend was the pinnacle of my career. It deepened the work I already do with men and opened new doors and possibilities for what is to come! I can hardly wait for next year and may have to do something this fall.
The men explored their edges, blasted through (more…)
I was tagged in a note recently by a new Facebook friend, Jennifer. The topic intrigued me as I have been exploring a lot around sexuality lately. Of course, I have not mentioned sex much to my blog readers, thus buying into more secrecy, shame, and “it’s personal” crap. Jennifer, through the below note, and without knowing it, lovingly called me out and invited me to share more on the topic of sex and sexuality. So stay tuned…
I am still very much in process around sex and sexuality. The “old me” believed you teach something when you have it mastered, not when you are immersed in the learning process yourself (I know, more crap, nice story).
The timing could not be more perfect as I have been working with a sexual healer to deepen my sexuality with myself and my wife. I hired the same man to come to my leadership training this weekend to serve my brothers in the training. I’ll be sharing more personally soon. So, THANK YOU Jennifer! Your note will be the first sexuality post of many to come.
One more thing: I’m with Jennifer–Let’s lift the veil and start to heal and reclaim our sexuality and our sexual power by talking openly about it with one another. It is time.
Hello Friends (some new and some old)
This is a blog post I just wrote and I am debating actually posting (more…)
Next week will mark the half-way point of the Men’s Leadership Training. Twelve bold men taking serious action toward living more powerful, impactful lives. This is a guest post from one of the participants of the current MLT 2010. I met Jonathan last fall over the phone when I started coaching him. I asked the tribe of MLT if someone would like to write about their experience thus far. As per usual, Jonathan jumped forward and here is what he has to say after 80 days in the six month training.
On a cold, clear Thursday night in January 2010, I walked into a room of men I had never met before. By Sunday, I was calling these men my brothers.
That isn’t quite the beginning of my story. Let me back up.
I joined MLT because I want to make a difference in the world. I wanted to get real; I wanted to stop hiding from my issues. I was tired of feeling alone. I was afraid of coasting, but even more afraid of completely opening my eyes to my potential.
I desperately wanted to be part of a group of men that make a (more…)
