These are gatherings of men:
who want to take time to be present to themselves.
who want to explore their inner world
who want to connect with the more of who they are.
who have ‘sorry business’, hurts, to tend to.
who want to be in life with all of who they are, mind and body, feelings and spirit.
All you need to participate is:
the desire to connect with more of your wholeness.
These are weekends of personal exploration:
in a supportive group of fellow men.
starting from ‘what is happening for me in life, now’.
using methods from Emotional Release Counselling.
getting beneath our thinking and rationalising.
getting to layers of feeling and release.
being guided by the inner wisdom/healer that we each have.
listening to parts of ourselves that are less conscious.
The methods offered provide:
ways of experiencing both conscious and unconscious parts.
ways of feeling deeply, releasing and clearing.
ways of being present to our bodies, our emotions and our energy.
ways of connecting with our biography, our birth and the transpersonal.
The methods include: (as appropriate)
