For men, these are confusing times...
The messages we get about ourselves as men
are often contradictory and even condemning.
For example, we know that the "strong silent type" of the 1950's seems obsolete and limited in today's world
And yet, the soft, sensitive New Age man may seem indecisive and not fully in his power.
So, who are we really, as men?
In the modern world, few men have strong masculine role models, if any at all. Certainly, our media fails to offer many positive examples.
The misconduct of some male public figures
has led to a condemnation of "male-ness" in general, labeling male power as "toxic masculinity."
Modern men are bombarded by these confusing
messages, leaving many of us feeling uncertain
and even guilty just for being men.
This conference is dedicated to reclaiming this essential aspect of ourselves as men.
The Need for a Summit for Men
This online conference is dedicated to men who want to embody their masculinity with responsibility and positivity.
Traditionally, men relied on each other for survival.
But now, in many households, the father and other male leaders are often physically or emotionally absent, and the masculine lineages are broken.
Events such as this Summit are occasions to reclaim your essential link to the masculine.
Each presenter will focus on a different facet of men's work, showing us the diversity of approaches available for us to regain ourselves more fully.
In each of the eight presentations, you will discover
new perspectives and tools to help bring your masculine identity more deeply into your life.
The workshops will be experiential and fun. Join us for as many as you can, or all day! And at the end of the day, we will have a panel discussion to explore viewpoints on essential issues faced by men.
There is no cost to participate, so feel free to invite your friends for this important event.
"A man with a weak masculine is especially prone to despise and fear these qualities, and may attempt to suppress the feminine force in his partner."
