July 24-26, 2009
Men and their Struggle with Intimacy
Men and their held in, repressed, bottled up or explosive anger can have very negative consequences if not expressed appropriately on a regular basis. Unexpressed anger turns into rage and chronic emotional tension which robs men of valuable energy, vitality, and health, and thus can lead to men not only hurting ourselves, but also those they love or work with.
This is a safe, supportive, non-shaming setting to do anger work and grief work (they go hand-in-hand), whether it is dealing with loss, death, divorce, disease or childhood trauma. Grieving is a key to healing.
October 2-4, 2009
Boys to Men to Elders: Understanding Emotional Regression & Passivity
This weekend they will explore and expand the term “regression”—the best kept secret in Psychology and Recovery and passivity—the compulsion to be attached to not having the things people say they really want and desire which keeps men living a half-lived life; half in and half out of relationships and not being able to commit to their own creativity.
During this down-to-earth, fast-paced workshop participants will:
*Learn why they regress and what to do about it
*Identify the red flags of regression
*Explore the five things that will grow them or others back up every time
*Examine the causes and pre-conditions for regression
