Estamos con los últimos preparativos para el Encuentro de Hombres este fin de semana!

Por primera vez en América del Sur, ManKind Project se presenta con lideres para hacer un circulo de hombres, donde profundizaremos en las cosas que tenemos que equilibrar en nosotros y ponerle Luz a cada una de las sombras que el hombre no supo manejar durante mucho tiempo.

Es un tiempo para conocernos a nosotros mismos como hombres, y desde ese lugar ser los Hombres Maduros y Equilibrados que corresponden a estos momentos.

Agradecemos a todas las mujeres conscientes que nos apoyan en este Renacer Masculino y agradecemos a todos los hombres que desde distintos paises nos envian su apoyo para este momento que juntos, cocrearemos.

"Using the television as their primary tool, very-high-level marketers have managed to create a nation of people who typically:

*work almost all the time

*absorb several hours of advertising every night, in their own homes

*are tired and unhealthy and vaguely dissatisfied with their lives respond to boredom, dissatisfaction, or anxiety only by buying and consuming things

*have disposable income but can’t find a more fulfilling line of work without losing their health insurance

*create health problems for themselves, which can be treated with drugs they can “ask their doctor about”

*own far more items than they use, and believe they don’t have enough

*are easily distracted from the unhealthy state of their lives and their culture by breaking news and celebrity gossip

*perpetually convince themselves it is not the right time to make major lifestyle changes

*happily buy stuff that breaks within a year, and which nobody knows how to fix

*have learned, through the media’s culture of blame-mongering, that the key to solving public and private issues is to find the right people to hate

Not that it’s drastically different in the rest of the developed world. Trillionaires (or at least their employees) are working around the clock to pipe these habits into living rooms everywhere. Huge economy, huge population, global influence.

Healthy people — who know how to deal with disappointment, who have given up on the idea of magic bullets, who don’t watch TV indiscriminately, who are fulfilled by things that don’t cost money — are poor consumers, and so the very-high-level marketers have nurtured a culture which produces the exact opposite.

You are being encouraged, from virtually every angle, to become or remain unhealthy and unfulfilled, because then you will buy more. Not to make you paranoid, but that’s the primary purpose of the glowing rectangle in your living room — to encourage poor (but not quite failing) health, general complacency, and an unconscious reflex for parting with money.

This is not a rallying cry to go burn down your local Wal-Mart. The anti-capitalism schtick is for high school kids.
I’m not even telling you to throw your TV out the window. But that’s definitely a move with a very high ROI, if the thought interests you.

I don’t even recommend that you nurture hatred for The Man. In fact, it’s an understatement to say that that would be barking up the wrong tree. There’s nothing out there — no ideology, methodology, behavior, person or idea — that it is healthy to hate. The Man does what he does because he doesn’t know any better — he’s an addict himself, with poor life skills.

Your life skills can be made into superior ones, which will protect you from succumbing to destructive and self-destructive urges, such as (among many others) the urge to create a culture of ill health, fear and addiction just so you can enjoy exclusive sensations like wearing 10,000-dollar underwear, or trading companies like they’re baseball cards.

It is a sad Man indeed who cannot achieve a comfortable life without running hundreds of millions of people into the ground to make it easier to get at what’s in their wallets. He can’t really back out of it now anyway — he’s pot-committed, as they say.

So don’t hate The Man, it will only weaken and distract you from what you might accomplish if you don’t follow his cues. Hate has a terrifically poor ROI, at least as far as quality of life goes. If you’ve got some rage you feel needs “investing”, take up a racquet sport. Direct your rage away from any people and animals, and when your tantrum is over, turn your energy towards the cultivation of your life skills.

I’m not referring to situationally-specific life skills like changing tires, folding button-up shirts, or opening public washroom doors without touching the handle, though they are certainly useful.

Here I’m talking about the real fundamentals of being an empowered, self-directed human being.

Creativity. Curiosity. Resilience to distraction. Patience with others.

And to make these all possible: self-reliance — an unswerving willingness to take responsibility for your life, regardless of who had a hand in making it the way it is.

Cultivate these qualities in yourself and others, and when this way of life becomes more normal than getting one’s lifestyle cues from discount-store flyers and CNN, the surefire trillionaire strategy won’t work anymore. For anyone.

Even from a seemingly unempowered starting point — a budget apartment in some forgettable corner of a society that has been designed to make you sick and impotent — these traits will do more for you than any “Anti” stance you can think of. Hating the system is a favorite American pastime. It feels good, is difficult to stop once you start, and gets you precisely nowhere, not unlike eating Doritos.

This is not us against them, it’s us for us.

Though The Man is immature in many ways, he does have a lot of cash, and his strategies are going to be in your face everywhere.

He designed your lifestyle, from the years you toil at a job that has nothing to do with your passions, to the Ford advert you stare at while you’re peeing in a urinal at Applebee’s, to your DVD player that lasted only thirty days longer than its warranty, to the well-trafficked path between your microwave and your couch.

The trillionaire-making strategies you encounter are so insidious because of how normal they’ve become. You’ll find them creeping into your life not only explicitly, in magazines and commercials, but implicitly, in the way other people around you — even people you love — expect you to live.

You will have to be unusual. I hope you already are."

Friend Ewan Townhead opens us with some deep questions about the masculine in modern culture:

"I've been thinking a lot about men and women recently. I'm sure it has a lot to do with being a man who is deeply in love with a woman 🙂

We went to see David Deida speak recently. It's had a big impact on both of us, we've had many conversations about it, and us.

I've been reading his stuff and studying his work for about 10 years. (If you've never heard of him, he's an author who writes at the intersection of spirituality and sexuality.)

I remember reading 'Way of the Superior Man' when I was 25. It was a kick in the nut-sack! I discovered just how 'unsuperior' I was, and proceeded to try and follow his instructions, on how to be a 'superior' man.

I totally missed the point and proceeded to fumble-fuck my way through my relationships, trying to be strong, present and conscious. Even though I didn't really understand what those things were from the inside, or whether I was interested in embodying them.

It's been the last few years that I've actually begun to understand what he was really saying. Mostly I think, that's been a result of very sustained and deliberate practice.
I've been training with Michaela Boehm for the last 2 years, who worked with David for many years. I've done therapy.

I've gone through a tough and ultimately liberating breakup with someone who was deeply important to me. I've fallen in love, and found what in some ways feels like my first grown up relationship. I've worked at the challenge of having deep and intimate relationships.

And so I've been thinking again about this work, and the nature of men, women, masculine and feminine.

My thoughts (and a question)...
People often talk about men being masculine and women being feminine. I understand it, but as I've actually grappled with these energies in my own day-to-day life, the picture has been so much more complex. Deida is totally clear about this, people just misunderstand him.

It's so obvious to me that we need both. We need different shades of the polarity in different parts of our lives. Being driven and ambitious around a 2-year old isn't good practice. Being endlessly patient and unchallenging as an entrepreneur doesn't cut it.

And it's obvious to me that I have both. People have often commented on my emotional literacy. I can somatically empathise with people pretty deeply for a man. I cry at films constantly! I can't help it!

Much of my work has actually been understanding my masculinity. One reason is that my dad lost his own father when he was young. And a clutch of cultural wisdom was not properly passed down the line. This drove him toward therapy and men's work, which I feel so grateful to have had the benefits of.

The other is that we're in an unprecedented time. We don't fully understand what post-feminism masculinity actually looks like.

The maps and role models are not as widespread as I would like. Though they are there, I think we're piecing it together. We're trying to work out how to be men in a world where the man of the past is not celebrated as he used to be.

And part of that is just the way it has to be. We do need to move beyond the 1950's madman, or the medieval king, or the caveman. But we also need to include the essential nature of masculinity. And that requires men themselves, going deep within, touching that essence and then enacting out in the world. That's been my own project.

Some of my friends have been publicly questioning and challenging some of the images of men that are taught through gender studies programs. It's a conversation I and my male friends have talked about for years, but somehow never in public. Like it wasn't allowed.

One of the big ones is the idea of patriarchy - it's central to our cultural thinking.

It's an important start. But I would say it's great (and now damaging) fault is that it doesn't go far enough.

The idea starts to reveal the dark side of masculinity, when it turns pathological. But then it sets it up in opposition to feminism, the liberating notion that re-balances the world.

Feminism has created enormous and necessary change in our culture. I think we all take that as self-evident. But if you stop there you end up with...
patriarchy (male) = bad.
feminism (female) = good.

To do justice to the analysis you have to also flip the polarities. You have to look at the essential liberating nature of masculinity, and the shadow version of femininity.
What is 'matriarchy' - the dark side of the feminine, that we daren't face? Because it's there.

What is the light side of the masculine, how does it express itself in service to God, the human project, loved ones?
This is what I've been thinking about a great deal. I think many of us are.

I want to know your thoughts. What do you believe each one looks like?"
