The Awakening Man: A 7 Month Healing Circle for Men by Women
There are many men, who during these times, are waking up to the realities of our world.
They recognize that things have come out of alignment, and they are doing their part to repair what has been done.
They are men who know there is a better way, and that this is the moment to embody, a different form of masculinity- a form of masculinity that does not dominate or have power-over, but rather, a form of masculinity that supports, holds, and protects.
Many men who are waking up are weaving in the teachings of the feminine, to replace what has been taken out. By understanding, embracing, and loving the feminine aspects of life, many believe the masculine can be in it’s true and natural form.
The erasure and devaluing of the feminine has set in motion a blueprint for humanity that causes each of us to suppress this nature within.
This journey is designed to bring forward the teachings of the feminine form of divinity, to support men in their journey of self discovery, and healing.
In this virtual temple, we will be exploring the seven archetypes of: Child, King, Lover, Magician, Warrior, Villain, and Hero and how they relate to the feminine aspects of divinity.
Each weekend, we will be looking at the inner landscape of our psyches, to delve into how these archetypes live within us.
We will focus on how these archetypes have been affected by the suppression of the feminine, and the ways of the Mother. By highlighting and sharing feminine-based traditions with you, we will support placing the Great Mother Goddess back into the center of our inner landscapes and world.
Each weekend we will have three women (including me), that will be guiding and sharing during this journey. All the women involved have been deep inside the women's mysteries, the return of the ways of the Goddess, and are all practitioners of various forms of healing and medicine.
As we look at our souls, and unravel what may be there, we will ground into the compassion and unconditional love of what the Great Mother Goddess represents.
We will do this through, song, prayer, shadow work, and ritual.
We will have rituals and assignments between virtual circles as well. You will be partnered up in a "buddy" system as a way to keep each other accountable in the work.
This is a shorter, condensed version of an in person 7 month initiation: Earth’s Rising Sons.

About the Facilitators
As a woman who has been on the path of the sacred feminine, it has felt vital over the past few years to bring men into this healing. I became aware that there are not many places for men to heal. And, I also became aware that the suppression of the teachings of the Mother has affected all of us.
Starting to welcome the brothers back to Her temples has been fulfilling, beautiful, healing, and important. Her teachings are for everyone, Her way is for everyone. We are all Her children. And while I think there is importance as well to have women only spaces (especially to honor our blood cycles), I also feel the importance of sharing this tradition with whoever is standing at the temple’s doorways.
