It’s Time For a New Kind of Leadership
Make a Difference – Become a Men’s Circle Facilitator
Leaders of the past have often been the determined by the dominant ego, where ‘he who speaks loudest’ rules.
This dynamic creates a hierarchy where one dominates the many.
We have outgrown this old model.
To restructure society to be more unilateral and inclusive we need a new template…a circle.
Gathering in circle was the time honoured practice that ensured ancient civilisations were socially sustainable!
Now more than ever we need to revive this ancient tradition of gathering in circle…
To learn how to share power by ensuring every voice is equally heard
To practice our personal power by speaking our authentic truth
To access the support of community and create safe containers to process our experiences

5 Ways Circles Support Men
Connection. Circles offer an opportunity to connect on a regular basis…with ourselves and others.The more connection, the happier we feel, the better our wellbeing and the less prone to self-soothe with addictive behaviours.
Empowered Choices. Circles ensure we take time to reflect on our choices so we can minimise drama and make empowered choices.
Confidence. When we practice speaking our truth in a safe space it strengthens our confidence to be speak up as our own advocate in our lives.
Better Relationships. Through the reflection of our shared experiences we gain insight into ourselves and practice being transparent. These are the skills needed for intimacy, enhancing the quality of all our relationships.
Support. When we share deeply we create deep bonds of friendship that provide the support we need for life’s challenges.
