The Renaissance Man Support Group is to support, guide, and educate awakened men who seek deeper spiritual relationships, to understand the language of women and the feminine divine, including understanding their own feminine energy, to cultivate meaningful lives, to be in alignment with their purpose, to develop emotional intelligence and resilience, to be more grounded and PRESENT, to learn how to alleviate the stress and cultural pressures including the role of being a father, to transcend beyond stereotypical male paradigms, to share gifts from the heart, to get out of the shadow of their parents, to transform their darker sides into love, creativity, and passion, to experience peace of mind, and to network and build friendships with other like-minded men.
This group is designed to sometimes push you out of your comfort zone by discussing topics you may agree or disagree with or it will invite you to open up about areas in your life where you feel challenged. No one is obligated to participate but we invite you to tap into fears and aspects of yourself that might be hidden, immature, or unrecognized. We hold space for whatever issues that might arise but only ask that you take full responsibility for your emotional well-being and discomfort. THIS GROUP IS NOT TO BE CONSTRUED AS PSYCHOTHERAPY. If you are stuck, have hit a wall, don’t know where to go, or just want to fine-tune where you are, or just desire male companionship, this group could help.
This is non-competitive group that practices non-violent communication. It is an interactive group structured to answer questions, learn applicable techniques, and to help men share honest feedback with each other. The group will be private and held in a space that allows processing and introspection. All men are welcome but you must be in alignment with the purpose and integrity of the group. Whether you are straight, gay, single, younger, older, or in a relationship, this group is open to ALL. Note: The majority of the men showing up are straight so topics regarding relationships lean more towards a heterosexual point of view.
The cost for each group is $10. REMEMBER THIS GROUP IS FOR MEN ONLY:) No women or teenagers under 18.
