Our Journey.

In order to be the best men we can be, we need to get rid of a lot of the ‘baggage’ we have accumulated over the last fifty years.

Only if we look at our own stuff, in an honest and open way, can we suggest to other men that it might be something that will work for them.

Our journey is ongoing, but basically it can be broken down into three parts:

  • Stop the rot: stop doing things that take away from our power as men, and start doing the things that give us power.  Make a plan to continue to do this, dumping the stuff that doesn’t serve us and taking up the stuff that does.  To be part of a community of men who will support each other to work towards the things that they feel most appropriate to their positive journey without judgment or criticism.
  • Find our purpose: go through the experience, training or practices that are needed to identify what our one big purpose is in making a better world for everyone.  To support other men ans they begin or continue that exploration, sharing tools and experiences and nothing more.
  • Deliver our purpose: as a community of men who are united in the vision that they are committed to helping humanity – and the word at large – to be the best it can be.  We will work together supporting and challenging each other to deliver our individual purposes understanding that every man has his own part to play, and way to play it.  We are not here to judge another man or his purpose or interpretation, we are here to support him, and give him the courage to do what he needs to.

The blogs you will find on this page are the personal experiences as we go through our jorneys towards this better state.  They are simply a brutally honest and open account of the various challenges and experiences that we go through, on a daily basis, in order to become the Men that we want to be.  We would love to hear your own journeys and what value you may take from hours.

How I downsized my sentimental clutter

I have boxes of ‘memories’ that I have been dutifully filling over the last thirty years: tons of junk which is more about evidence of me being cool than a box of objects that make up my physical biography.

Giving it the boot.

Over forty or so years I have succumbed to the disease of consumerism and have bought all of the things that I believed that I needed around me to make myself comfortable, to make life work.

Me and my Shadow

Me and my Shadow

I've been talking a lot about Shadow in the last few weeks... Probably because I’ve just completed a six-month ‘journey’ exploring my ‘psychological shadow’ and the ‘Jungian Archetypes’, where I got to spend a lot of time looking at the parts of my psyche which I’ve...

Remembering to play

When I was a kid, I moved around a lot. I moved schools, homes, locations and friends. It was just a result of family changes and I didn’t have any control over it.

I’m as mad as Hell…

I really am very angry.  I’ve noticed that it comes out as negativity and a general lack of joy in things: it brings the people down around me.
