WORKSHOPS FOR MEN:
The Sword and the Scepter is an amazing 4-day workshop which explores all aspects of men’s power. Held twice per year, it is one of the most powerful workshops we know of for men. Two of the Tribe’s co-founders conduct this workshop, and the Tribe resulted from it. Highly recommended. All of the Tribe’s founders and many other tribesmen have taken it. Held in Northern California, in Toronto, and other cities. Visit www.swordandscepter.com to learn more.
The Noble Man Workshop provides a safe space for men to express and explore their fears, wounds and resentments around women while being held and supported by an experienced female staff. Being seen and heard with unconditional love and acceptance allows for the true alchemy of man and woman to emerge. This intensive culminates in a Rite of Initiation for men into their purpose and vision as a whole man, honoring themselves and being honored by women. Held in Northern California. www.celebrationofbeing.com.
BASIC MEN’S WORK (and helpful even if you’re not just starting out):
