new man circle
This is a unique on-line course for Men who are ready to create a new ground of being for self discovery, and want to be part of a community which encourages living with honesty, courage, humor, passion and meaning.
I warmly invite you to join a Men's group where we will practice and sharpen our tools for listening, embodiment, meditation, communication, and cultivating a daily practical path for expansion and growth in our life.
This process will invite and dialogue with your vulnerability, desires, and your connection to your body and spirit.
Each meeting will begin with a guided meditation practice; establishing a
connection to the body through a variety of meditation techniques and breathing practices unique to men.
We will use writing exercises and create a culture of honest sharing to uncover our fears, motivations and desires. This process will allow us to dream bigger, and encourage each other toward deeper satisfaction, contentment, and authenticity in our lives.
Each week we will receive clear and engaging tasks and exercises to do on our own. These "home works" will be supported with video and written content in order to give us the fullest background to our practice, as well as pave the road to the next week.
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 meetings 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.

Pleasure , desire, and actualizing our dreams.

Accountability and Growth.
I believe 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!

Mediation is the bridge

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.

"Tal is an attentive and grounding facilitator, expert at creating a supportive environment, listening to a personal story and eliminating the unnoticed aspects of it. He has a great deal of knowledge, tools and wisdom he shared generously.
I’m very happy and thankful for all the journeys we’ve shared together."
"The Men's Circle facilitated by Tal, is a place for being, breathing, receiving support and learning how to give it to others.
I experienced an immediate and lasting improvement in the quality of my life. ( even now 2 months after the course) The experience gave more tools and humor on working with my shadows, as well as practical focus on the work I want to be doing. It's not instant magic, it depends on each individuals work, but Tal knows how to create the ground for becoming more connected to your self and being better person, and a better man
