Men’s Sexual Shadow Transformation Weekend
September 20 – 22
Facilitated by Giles Carwyn
As human beings, sexuality is fundamental to who we are. It is intimately tied to our sense of self and our place in the world. But cultural expectations are nowhere close to matching the internal reality of most men.
Our culture tends to frame men’s sexuality in a very negative light. For centuries, our culture has simultaneously controlled, entitled, shamed, misrepresented, obligated and condemned men as sexual beings. We have been painted as dangerous, creepy, wanton, selfish, inadequate, unavailable, and perverse. This disconnect between cultural expectations and personal feelings has left many men living with a deep sense of shame and rejection that we are expected to hide behind macho bravado or spiritual mastery.
The many taboos around this subject have pushed men’s sexuality into the shadows leaving many men starving for a place where they can talk freely about the painful and joyful ways their sexuality and has shown up in their lives.
This Men’s Sexual Shadow Transformation Seminar will be a rare opportunity for men to gather to have a frank and honest look at men’s sexuality on personal, interpersonal and cultural levels.
It is an opportunity to:
- Share your deepest truths without shame or blame
- Debunk pervasive myths about men’s sexuality
- Transform painful, self-limiting beliefs
- Overcome internal resistance
- Access joy and connection
Over the course of the weekend there will be an opportunity for each man to identify his peak sexual experiences — the times, real or fantasized, when he felt most aroused, engaged and fulfilled.
Those peak experiences will serve as a compass leading to the deeper parts of each man’s psyche where our sexual shadows hide our magnificence.
Most men will have an opportunity to do a Shadow Work ® process to face those shadows and reclaim their authentic sexuality for themselves.
Please consider joining us for this unique opportunity.
All men are welcome.
If help was going to arrive to lift me out of my misery, it would come from the dark side of my personality.
