Masculine Alchemy: Integrating the Shadow into Nobility
Jul 21 @ 10:00 am – 7:00 pm

Brothers,

Are you ever confused by the seemingly mixed messages you receive from society and women that ask you to, “be in your masculine power,” “express more leadership,” “stand up for yourself/family/partner,” and yet, when you attempt to do so, you are then criticized for being insensitive, domineering, or too aggressive?

Or, do you ever wish you could be part of a masculinity training dojo where you could actually practice discovering, feeling and learning to appropriately wield all of the many different tools you have as a man: mindfulness, passion, a purpose, and even scarily powerful aggression and primal sexuality?

New Man Rising’s July Intensive is an all-day workshop specifically designed to do just that: uncover, own, practice embodying and then integrating masculinities full portfolio of characteristics and attributes – especially the shadowy ones of which we are often ashamed or afraid.

Men, if we fail to know and fully accept ourselves and to integrate all of our disparate elements – even the aspects we don’t love – we will remain conflicted internally, among each other, and with our partners.

This workshop intends to help participants alchemize the “toxic,” and often taboo, aspects of their masculine power into rocket fuel that empowers noble, embodied expressions of their highest selves – expressions that bring vitality and purpose into our lives, evolution to society, and desire and passion to relationships.

This body of work might be right for you if:

  • You want to go deep with a band of brothers who are dedicated to your becoming your own best version of yourself.
  • You want to grow your masculine edge with solid men who’ll hold a clean container and give you straight feedback on how you’re showing up.
  • You want to embody more of your “primal sexuality” in a conscious (non-toxic / non-harmful) manner so that you can express yourself with greater passion and cleaner desire.
  • You want to cultivate your capacity to pursue your goals with the tenacity of a fierce warrior and the sensitivity of a heart-centered, compassionate man.

This work is comprised of a variety of transformational movements and consciousness/embodiment practices from sources ranging from John Wineland, T-Group, Eastern religions, Western/existential philosophers, the 12-steps, Mankind Project, Jungian archetypes, cognitive-behavioral frameworks, David Deida, Tantra, yoga, Circling, ecstatic dance, and various breathwork modalities.
