Patriarchy and Women in the Workplace

While we have come far in the last 50 years … tremendous technological growth, global diversity awareness, economic growth for 2nd and 3rd world nations … the American workplace still remains a bastion of the old patriarchal values. And nowhere is this more evident than in the political arena. Patriarchy is not about gender. It is about a set of beliefs, attitudes, and practices that affect both men and women. It is about the masculine principle gone rogue. In the political and corporate world, the interactions remain aggressively power seeking, defensive, hierarchical, homophobic, competitive, and emotionally disconnected from people… Read more »

Paradox

The Sacred Masculine is the vertical axis … the sun and sky, grounded in the earth. It is active presence, direct, initiating, boundaried, a sword, the cock. The Sacred Feminine is the horizontal axis … connective, unifying, fluid, open. It is the ocean, food, flowers, the womb. Within the Male … is the Masculine and Feminine. Within the Female … is the Masculine and Feminine. Love and Truth … to heal the world is truly within our power. Shadow and Light … we are always Shadow and Light in 4 dimensions. It is our wild nature … that connects… Read more »

Welcome to the inner life of ‘middle age’ men … late 20’s, 30’s, early 40’s. There is nothing wrong with you, man, it’s just that no one has ever talked to you about these feelings or this angst. Most of us grow up in this ManBox, full of shit and false promises.… Read more »

The Deep Process

This past Saturday, four courageous men joined me online for a Virtual Day of Deep Process. I was uncertain this first time, yet having successfully deep processed with a number of individual clients over the years, I intuitively felt that my/our good intentions would handle whatever logistical and/or technological disturbances that might arise. Indeed, it was a powerful experience. Today, I write this to men in the work, and to the work in men … Thank you so much for your courage in sharing all of you with me. I have often imagined that you are in this much… Read more »
