Workshop for men in Italian Dolomites, July 2019
Time & Location
About The Event
“Let the boy inside you grow up, become a man”
In almost every tradition, when a boy grew up he passed from the care of his mother to the protection of his father. From then on, as a young man, he experienced male life. And when he was ready for adulthood, he underwent an initiation that gave him full-fledged belonging to the manhood.
This process has been disturbed in the modern world. As a result, men are afraid of their masculinity and they escape into aggression or effeminacy. Similar to women who fear their femininity and mask it with an unhealthy, false self-sufficiency.
Workshops for men in the Dolomites are designed to:
find the joy and courage of being a man,
take and give without fear and guilt,
feel the full belonging and regain identity,
find courage, respect, gratitude and faith
Cut off from the mother (that is, from the wife, partner, lover, friend, etc.), reliant only on ourselves and the group, we will experience genuine contact with nature. We will see what power stillness and silence have. Where the limit of our endurance is and how we can cross it. During the exercises and rituals, we will feel how important I am to another person and how important he is to me. We will look for what is real in us and what only seems to be so.
In order to, by drawing from our roots, like warriors after a long, dangerous expedition, return to our partners and children, like husbands to wives and fathers to children, and not like boys returning under the wings of mother.
