The New moon calls for presence, a moment to pause, turn inward and allow an unfolding to flow with natural ease. It’s an ideal time for a new beginning, a fresh start, a blooming vision. The new moon invites us to be clear about our intentions and move towards fullness. Many of us men are unconsciously rushing as society measures our success by our efficiency and ability to stay on top of unrealistic targets. Even with so many time-saving devices we are still rushing. Research and studies show that rushing frequently not only makes us less productive but has severe impacts on our health and our wellbeing. Don't be hostage to your career, outdated stories, or old habitual ways of being. In this place it is about connecting and embracing the entire human experience of being who you are. Come and join our men’s circle in a welcoming and safe place that invites us to put aside our "normalised" ways we present to the outside world and release your unencumbered genuine man. Make sense of your disjointed experiences in this journey of exploration, discovery, deep listening and truth-speaking. Each man brings his unique way of being, life experiences, untold stories, and when given voice in a collective of men, paradigm shifts occur. The Masculine Way calls out to men with a desire for genuine connection, clarity of mind, and a deeper understanding of self, others, and the world we live in. In the new moon cycle our deepest desires can take root and ground with intention from this place of fully inhabiting each moment. Join us as equals and make sense of jumbled experiences in a space free of judgment, fixing, therapy, dogma, or hierarchy. There is nothing you need to do, prove, fix, and no one to look after. Imagine giving self-permission to focus on your own needs, wants and desires. How amazing would that be? About the circle: Sitting together in a circle is an ancient human practice found on all continents and practiced for millennia. Particular guidelines maintain the integrity and safety of the group – some of them are listed here: -Create sacred space. -We sit in a circle as equals with no hierarchy, corners or podiums. -One man speaks at a time, and the other men practice radical listening. -We use "I" language and take ownership of our own experiences. -We share honestly and authentically about what we feel. Speaking in this way is powerful and courageous and can take some getting used to. -The circle is free of advice-giving, fixing, therapy, comments, and feedback. -Judgments are left at the door. -The circle's sacredness and safety are supported by maintaining strict confidentiality and treating each other with the utmost care and respect. Helpful tips: We sit on the floor on comfortable cushions, so wear floor sitting friendly clothes. Bring a water bottle, your favourite cushion if you like, and anything else that helps you feel comfortable. We also have plenty of cushions and bolsters at the venue that you are welcome to use. The Masculine Way calls you to leap, dive in and give voice to that which has been silent. Take your place, join the men. About the facilitators Dominic Carlino Dominic is extroverted, active, busy, creative, sociable, innovative, eager, tolerant, carefully daring, pleasantly decisive, people-oriented, positive and open. He brings over 20 years of experience sitting in circles and exploring healthy humanness through programs such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Shamanic Training, Avatar, Gestalt and Byron Katie, to name a few. He is passionate about family, nature, good food and meaningful contribution. Tony Creagh Tony is an industrious, adventurous, and somewhat quirky person capable of turning his hand to almost anything. As guardian of many animals and a large rural property in the Perth Hills, home time is mostly a quiet, but busy life in beautiful natural surroundings. He has many years experience in men’s work and a rather diverse, unique skillset. Along with being passionate about family, animals and the environment, Tony enjoys real, spontaneous, unrehearsed conversations with meaning and feeling. Words from Peter "I was challenged. I was not accustomed to sharing my honest experiences with myself, never mind with other men. But it was worth it, I have a sense of clarity I have not had for a long time, and I feel like I belong with this group of men." Words from Andre "It was great not to have to think about my wife or daughters. It felt like I was speaking just for my own benefit and at first I thought I was rambling a bit. It turns out I was able to make sense of some stuff that was happening to me, just from speaking it to a bunch of men I didn’t even know. I’m going back for more!"
