We are a group or gathering of men from all walks of life, all ages and many nationalities. The only thing we have in common is that we are human and are men. Our stories of where we come from, what events have shaped us into who we presently are, are all different. Similarities no doubt, but different.
So for me at the age of 46 I have found that I am thinking differently from my previous decades and about different things, than I did before. I am talking about 'internal questioning of my'self'. What learnt patterns from family, mentors, peers, military instructors, school teachers etc still shape my daily experiences, internal thoughts, self esteem and WHY?
Since this awareness has arisen I have spoken to several other men and on different levels they are experiencing a similar event taking place in themselves. So upon digging deeper I have found that this is quite natural for men. However the journey that accompanies it on a healthy way with wisdom and understanding is no longer widely available in our western culture. The Elders have disappeared or are in old age homes, no longer seen to benefit to a technology driven society. Soon we will be there or are you there already?
Also I have found that we have 30 to 70 year old 'boys' living in our supposed 'advanced society'. We never have been given a rights of passage by Elders and men and not our Fathers when we were 13 or so. Fathers cannot successfully do this for their sons. It must be other men. So this, as a father of a 13 year old son has sparked off a dilemma and a quest to resolve this in myself and as a father for my son and maybe, just maybe our community and society! It appears that I am not alone in feeling like this. Men all over the planet are awakening and asking the questions our Fathers and Grandfathers never did or never shared with us.
We invite you to join us online or at our monthly Gatherings at my home in the beautiful hills of Aberdeenshire!
We wish you all the very best and hope to connect with you soon.
