Boys To Men

Now more than ever we need REAL MEN. The rite of passage of man is so important. We miss a vital aspect of our intra- and interpersonal growth and expansion when we miss a legitimate rite of passage.

The word teenager was not commonly used before the 20th century. Why? Because, when we look at the path of man we can see a linefeed and distinct path of either rapid growth or rapid decline.

Each BOY was supported in his growth, through challenge and hardship. Each boy was supported by a group of men propelling him forward with momentum in to the unknown with grace, glory and courage. And men can still be boys…

Each boy was asked to embrace fear, to face his gravest pains and be with the unknown. To take many risks and deal with the emotional vulnerability. These were hardened, focused, committed and willing boys and men.

Sounds like vulnerability, right??? It was. These young men were transitioning from boys to warrior kings. They were willing to sacrifice the old, what was now stagnant and what was not working to step in to a more empowered version of themselves.

They were choosing to be present to their need for transformation and transition. They were however, never asked to do or be anything their time of men had not been before them. They were asked to show up, irrespective of the challenge and to meet it with humility and perseverance.

Each boy was supported. They were guided and they learned more about themselves during that intense rite of passage than any other modality of teaching. They learned to respect their elders, be kind to the divinity of the feminine and own their authentic power.

Irrespective of the tribal culture, each deepened journey was created to bring out the darkest and lightest parts of the boy. To know their best, they had to be acquainted with their worst. Modern culture lacks this vital transition and men are soft – too soft.

Weakened in their state and disconnected form their minds, bodies and hearts. The time to shift is now.

One is glad to be of service.

Claiming One’s Self

We are constant works in progress. We are consistently evolving who we are. Perfection exists but only in a non-attached manner.

We are perfectly imperfect. That is the riddle. In my own life I have made many many mis-takes, many ‘failures’ and many choices that have not been conducive to my health or the health of my loved ones.

Take Her To God

Remind her that SHE IS a Goddess. Take her to places she never has gone before. Welcome the full expression of her being to permeate the space in which she occupies. Your permission is the congruency and integrity of your presence. You don’t ask for permission, you are permission by your endearing actions and the wisdom that is you.

Conscious Relationships – When Two People Connect With Their Souls

Identifying soul connections are not easy. They require deep connection within oneself first and foremost. Astute observation, intuition, internal alignment, intention, clarity in the heart-mind space and an ability and yearning to be present to the who of life…

A Man’s Suffering

You would think this wouldn’t be that hard to have in modern world. However, we are missing this. Men are overworked, depressed, repressed, isolated, numb and in excess pursuit of values such as status that does not serve.

Our boys are still growing in to adult bodies without effective rites of passage, without the confidence, wisdom, knowledge and skills. They are essentially left to fend for themselves and figure it out alone.

The Essence Of A King

A reflective piece on man living in his potential…

The King is all knowing. A true king does not confine his mind to incessant and distracting chatter that deters him from wisdom. A true king knows his worth and acts in accordance with this intricate knowing…
