Man Up
A Weekly Experiential Men's Group
a Wonderful Group of Men
Tony Camacho, C.Ht.

It is an Empowering Act to
Embrace the Masculine, while Equally to Own the Feminine Within

We are on the cusp on a monumental change and it will happen with the assistance of each of us becoming more of a man.

In this Group We Will create an intimacy with other men to facilitate our openness in the way we connect to the rest of our world.

We are not here judge but rather to remove the polarization we so deftly and often use in navigating through our world as a tool to protect ourselves.

Partial List of Topics to Be Experientially Explored Include:
- Manhood and where they originated from.
- How our beliefs have created a platform in the way we approach our world.
- How as men we have come to define woman and their roles.
- How the women in our lives have been the catalyst in sculpting our perceptions of who we are as men and they as women.
- How men under-use their emotional bodies and how our role models coached each of us into ignoring this part of us.
- We will explore how the act of being, and doing play out in our lives; how the male energy fuels us into doing, and the feminine allows us to simply be.

How the Meetings Will Unfold:
~ Supportive circular seating arrangement.

~ Meeting begins with intentions being set and a safe container created which unfolds as we go around the room each doing a check in.

~ Then topics covered covered both experientially and through talk.
Where talk is involved, it is by optional share with optional feedback: Our goal is to support and help empower each member to be more. Where urgency is sensed, an inquiry to the group may be made if anyone has an urgent matter and needs to share first.

~ Once a member's share is complete, if they are open to feedback, they receive feedback from the group. Feedback is response from other group members to the one who last shared in direct regards to their share with the fullest intent to be supportive. Feedback time is short, 1-2 minutes, and may be adjusted if a group conscience decides.

~In this group there is no cross talk. Cross talk is dialogue from a group member other than the one sharing that interrupts his share midstream.

~ There is a break depending on the number of people and consensus to allow a stretch and refresh. Just before it begins, announcements, if any, will be made.

~ Reconvene where we left off until complete.

Housekeeping Notes from Host Location, The GATEWAY:
* Thank you for honoring No Food or Eating or Drinks other than water in containers with lids inside the offices or workshop space of The GATEWAY.
* Cell phones silenced as you enter The GATEWAY Quiet Zones please. Thank you.
* The GATEWAY Portal practices and asks you, its attendees to join us in upholding a no perfume policy as possible. We also practice and ask all to adhere to a no candle and no incense burning policy for those sensitive to synthetic smells as well as for lessening our harmful carbon footprint impact on the environment. Please note that practitioners are permitted to burn a naturally sun dried herb called sage to clean the space energetically. & lastly where candles are part of a sacred ritual, safe, non-scented candles are permitted to be burned upon expressed consent by GATEWAY's operating director. If you have any further questions on this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
* Also, in as much as we LOVE animals outside humans, no animals other than humans are permitted inside The GATEWAY. Blessedly this does not eliminate our Practitioners here at GATEWAY from being able to do work on them, as often they work remotely and/or with photos or props. We thank the universe for Quantum on that. Where necessary, the Practitioner may set up chairs and a portable divider to makeshift a little private area outside near our patio to do hands on work with animals. Thank you so much for your understanding and co-operation.
