This is our second interactive series on the experiences we have as boys and opportunities we have as men, using the Enneagram as our guide. The Enneagram describes that we have different and preferred ways of thinking, feeling and behaving; it is a map to universal inner and outer territories. While we often gravitate to certain regions, we visit them all daily throughout our lives, so every discussion you engage in during this program applies to you. This year we focus on the wisdom available when we pay attention to our preferences amongst our instinctual drives, our defensive structures and mechanisms, and our development towards consciousness and higher states of being. Likely there will be plenty of new content for everyone here; to include self-reflection, teachings, participant panel discussions, small group explorations and more.
This second offering is part of our *on-going exploration* of what it means positively to be a man.
We all bring roles, experiences, stories, curiosities with us to this reflective and interactive work.
Join us again or for the first time in an exploration with other men interested in meaningful conversation on our diverse paths of being men. Deep learning and change happens over time and in continuous community. We recommend you take the discounted option and join all three sessions, and consider the discount option to bring a friend too.
