​​Community and coaching​ for men

​The life challenge for men is to make our ​best contribution. That means outer work and inner work. Sometimes ​the inner work looks like intense pain, isolation, confusion. Sometimes it looks like a magnificent adventure. Sometimes it’s ​in between but everyone deals with ​everything sometime.​

Here are some of the hard things​: 

  • ​You’re isolated. There’s no one to talk to about ​vital things.
  • You​ feel confusion, stress, anxiety even if you cover it well. (These often accompany isolation.)
  • You’re under or unemployed.
  • ​You’re ​stressed around “gender issues,” even if you know your opinion.
  • ​You don’t know how a man is supposed to be or you don’t like how he’s supposed to be. 
  • ​​​Unresolved issues or trauma from your family or origin, or your present family, weigh heavy on you. 
  • ​​You’re living Groundhog Day. And you’re not even Bill Murray.  

I’m a “mistake expert” in these issues​. I know what they’re like and ​maybe I can help. Call me and let’s see. I’ve been doing coaching and especially collective exploration groups for a while. Come help me set up a group just for men and get my men’s coaching off the ground.

​​The Good News – The Gifts

​ We have natural gifts just because we’re men. ​We’ve also got particular gifts that are uniquely ours. The gifts are ​hidden in the longing we feel. Meeting the longing on its own field changes ​us.

We can’t meet the real longing on our own. ​The lone hero is mostly a fiction. People need each other and men need each other. Think of the fellowship of the ring. Frodo didn’t go alone and wouldn’t have succeeded if he did. Men’s success is a group effort. Women can’t do this part of the journey for us because they don’t know what it’s like to be a man. They don’t have the tools we need. 

And here are some of the longings: 

  • To love and be loved
  • To ​​make our ​most treasured value live in the world
  • ​To be part of the fight for the future
  • To know we’re the right man in the right place
  • To ​dance with men of serious intent
  • ​To leave something behind

​”I’m gonna do it! I just don’t know how yet!”

“Ah men, once one of the world’s great sexes! – Garrison Keillor

​A man’s life doesn’t come with instructions. He doesn’t need ​instructions. He needs other men ​so they can find the way through the wilderness together.
