In Search of the Masculine


In search of the masculine. 

We are calling for a circle of men to explore the emerging territory of healthy masculinity at this time when Western cultural maps are broken.

Each of us carries elements of this emerging paradigm.  By bringing these fragments together we will illuminate a new map, and develop tools to navigate the choices, wonders and difficulties of our lives in a way that includes our emotional, intellectual, instinctual and creative selves.

Our guides are all experienced in facilitating self-discovery, with a broad range of skills to open the pathways to understanding and insight, and negotiate the challenges that a journey like this entails.

What you can expect?

We will gather around the fire, in the woods and in Embercombe’s dedicated indoor spaces, hold courageous conversations and use group and solitary enquiry, systemic constellations, sweat lodge and other transformational practices to unearth the buried treasure that all of us hold beneath the surface. We will be asking you to bring your honesty, humility and sense of adventure as we meet as a council of men to use our hands, hearts and souls to search for pathways to remap the masculine we believe is needed for our time.

Our aim is to return from this exploration more closely aligned with our true nature, in service of a more coherent masculine identity. This remembered cultural awareness will help us orientate ourselves in these chaotic times and more easily navigate our life path.

Who is it for?

We are calling for fellow seekers who want to better know themselves and their place in life. What’s required is the curiosity and audacity to advance this enquiry: to listen intently; to tell – and face – our truths. We will be asking for your honesty, humility and sense of adventure.

Our aim is to return from this exploration more closely aligned with our true nature, in service of a more coherent masculine identity. This awareness will help us orientate ourselves in these chaotic times and – whatever your purpose in life – to navigate your life path and find a deeper expression of your masculinity.
