Description

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Many men struggle with their relationship to masculinity and their sexuality. We're shown only two models: the nice guy or the dominant aggressor.

Yet with the resurgence of the mythic men's movement, and through stories like 'Iron John', men are being shown another, older way. The resurgence of healthy masculine culture lies in reclaiming our wild power as erotic beings - though it must be tethered to an initiated understanding of women and the feminine.

*** NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP IS IDEALLY FOR MEN & MALE-IDENTIFIED HUMANS - This workshop is intended to create a safe-space to go deep with the attendees. Please invite men in your network who might benefit from this discussion.

We're explore questions like:
• Why men tend to seek primary emotional support from women, and what the consequence is for both of them

• Why the relationship between men and their mothers is often linked to unconscious shame around sexuality

• How to understand the mother/whore dynamic with women, and how to break free from it

• What is the function of male intiation, and why all tradition cultures practiced it (and continue to do so)

• And much more.

Join filmmaker Ian MacKenzie (Amplify Her, Healing of Love) as he weaves various influences into a provocative tapestry - from Burning Man to Tamera eco-village in Portugal, revealing the archetypal journey all men must take to become potent allies to each other, and to life itself.

This workshop will be entertaining and enlightening, part storytelling and part experiential practice.

ABOUT IAN MACKENZIE
Ian MacKenzie has been called "The Indiana Jones of the new story." Based in Vancouver, Canada, he has produced a number of shorts that amplify the emerging culture story of inter-dependence: from 'Occupy Love' to 'Sacred Economics.'

In May 2015, Ian MacKenzie visited Tamera peace village in Portugal to shoot "Healing of Love" a new short film that explores 40 years of research in love, eros and the village. Learn more about the film and watch the trailer here http://healingoflove.com/
