Men's Circle: Surviving Your Family

Join the Psychedelic Society's Men's Circle in an evening of shared inquiry and discovery led by Conor. This month is a chance to delve into the vital topic of family...

Come join a light-hearted supportive Christmas themed Men's Circle to get some insight into why being with our families can be so difficult and share tips for how to survive them.

It's amazing how a trip home to visit our parents and siblings can transform us from loving mature adults to moody withdrawn teenagers. Decades of owning our shit, learning to communicate and taking responsibility for ourselves can disappear with a few simple questions from our parents about how our lives are going.

For many Christmas is a pride swallowing siege* of uncontrollable regression. We're coming together for this Men's Circle to shine a light on why that is, and how we can work on improving it.

It’s clear that the images of adult manhood given by the popular culture are worn out - a man cannot depend on them. As many men have been figuring out, the models that men have been taught to live by do not actually work in real life.

This is a gathering for psychedelic creatures who identify as men to explore together what a man is or could be in our times.
Over the coming year, we will explore our experience of manhood including:

- Opportunities to drop the mask and connect with other men authentically and vulnerably
- Learning to be as comfortable in our bodies as we are in our heads
- Explore our relationship to the Feminine (Yin) and Masculine (Yang) both inside and outside of ourselves.
- Explore to the Archetypes of the King, Warrior, Lover and Magician.
- Help and challenge each-other to show up in the world more fully – a sons, fathers, brothers, lovers, friends and allies.

We especially welcome transgender men and non-binary humans who were assigned male at birth.
