Living out cultural expectations of what it means to “be a man” can be confusing and
limiting at times. Years of conditioning have led to many of us struggling with
experiencing our feelings and expressing ourselves authentically. Cultural
imperatives to be stoic and strong but also open and soft can feel at odds. We can
become disconnected from our hearts and desensitized to our experience in the
world. Our important relationships with lovers, family, and friends can feel stagnant
and unfulfilling as a result of this conditioning.
In this three-day experiential workshop, we will explore the patterns with which we
embody our masculinity and ways this both supports and limits us in our lives and
relationships. Through Gestalt practices of awareness, movement, dialogue, and
experiment, this workshop aims to build a community of support where we can more
fully embody the range of our masculinity and make deeper contact with ourselves,
each other and our relational world.
This workshop is open to anyone who identifies as a man. Gender is a continuum
within which we all understand and vary from each other. We seek to build a learning
community of men with diverse backgrounds and identities, including race, ethnicity,
and sexual orientation.
This workshop is designed for all levels of mental health professionals. Others are
welcome to attend.
