Soothing Bell

the men's circle

a meditation and self growth course for men

Hiking in Sunset

A merging of a Men's Circle and a Meditation course. 
This is an on-line deep dive for Men who are interested in creating a new ground of being for self discovery through the practice of Mediation and the use of tools which encourage and promote a new discourse between men. This process will invite and dialogue with your vulnerability, desires, and your connection to your body and spirit.

Ground Work:

Each meeting will begin with a guided meditation practice; establishing a 

 connection to the body through a variation of meditation techniques and breathing practices unique to men.

Regaining Clarity:

We will use writing exercises and create a culture of honest sharing to uncover our fears, motivations and desires. This process is will allow us to dream bigger, and encourage each other toward deeper satisfaction, contentment, and authenticity in our lives. 

Community:

During the course we will be a part of a mini community which will support our growth and individual process as well as challenge us through questions and feedback.

We will work with a variety of tools from the worlds of meditation, psychotherapy, somatics, and coaching.

The world of Men's Work is part of a movement which seeks to promote a dialogue and practice which is unique to the spiritual, emotional and practical aspects of in the evolution of Men. The modern day roots of this movement began in the United States, revolving around Robert Bly's mythopoetic men's movement. In these meeting between men many topics which are intimately interwoven  in our life were discussed: our aggression, shame, vulnerability (or learned lack of it), fatherhood, work in the world, romantic partnerships, relationships to other men and more.
 

The work of opening ourselves to dare to address the most relevant topics in our lives with other men, allows for a fresh process of becoming more familiar with our own instincts, intuition, and insight about our place and direction in life. 

Some of our leading questions:

What does it mean to be a man?
 

What did I learn from my environment about masculinity?
 

What kind of man do I wish to embody, and how do I want to actualize myself in the world?

 

What do I currently fear?

Is it possible to be present in the body, and how do we go about it?

These are just some of the guiding inquiries we will work with during the course.

About me:

I believe in meditation and movement to be powerful anchors in creating a life filled with creativity and meaning. In the past decade I have been facilitating  workshops with an emphasis on body awareness, movement improvisation , and meditation. 
In recent years this work has also been developing in contexts of creating courses for Men which emphasize and explore the themes, topics, and challenges which men face today.

I am continually curious about finding and working with tools that help us create more balance, happiness, and satisfaction in day to day living.
There are many surprises and sometimes unwanted happenings "out there" in our life, which guide us back to finding new way of making our inner space a resting place and an oasis which we can then share with others. 

 

Part of my personal journey into men's work has allowed me to open up in deeper trust of life, and in working with other men to see how we can support each-other into growth and deeper meaning in our lives. 
I invite you to jump in!

There are many definitions around what mediation means. I like to think of it as a practice which allows us to become intimate with our selves. A window into the interior space. Meditation then, is the tool which allows us to go through the window. 

It is not about making a pretty sitting statue with our sitting, nor is it about suffering through any ordeal.
Just like any trail, there might be some uphill moments, 
and these go along with beautiful vistas, resting points, 
and moments of boredom as well. I like to invite every part of us into meditation because every part of us will surface anyway, and the practice allows us to become the spaciousness around it all. 

It allows for a sense of humor around 

being a human. 

smile. and breathe on.
