Healing the Boy, Strengthening the Man
We men carry a boy inside us that sometimes drives our actions and words. That boy holds all the wounds, dreams, patterns, and desires we developed during childhood and adolescence. He arises in our world at times when insecurity, doubt and fear are clutching at us, grasping at our lives in a way that can confuse us, defeat us, or tear at relationships. That boy also holds the key to wonder and awe, mystery, and joyful relationship.
We also live through the man we have become. All the lessons we have absorbed, all the skills we have developed, all the wisdom congealing in our souls, are presented to the world through this man. He struggles to bring his best to himself and others and often feels alone in this struggle.
We have the potential to heal this boy and bring out his best parts. We have the potential to reinforce and strengthen the man in us.
WE HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO INTEGRATE THE BEST PARTS OF THIS BOY AND THIS MAN SO WE DO NOT FEEL SPLIT, CONFLICTED, OR DIVIDED.
We also have potential to give birth to the wisdom, knowledge, and discernment of the budding elder, who can take the best parts of the boy and the man and fashion a being who is equipped and ready to give tremendously to this world.
Women have a vital stake in this process. Women who understand the nuances of men’s development have an advantage in being able to relate to men in a way that helps to foster constructive, caring, and fulfilling relationships.
Join us in healing the boy and rediscovering his awe and wonder. Join us in strengthening and developing the best parts of the man. Join us in giving birth to wisdom, the formation of maturity, and the evolution of discernment.
