'The Authentic Man'
‘The Authentic Man’ will explore the challenge and power in men sharing their true selves.
The Southern Men's Gathering, October 16 to 18, 2020 is a men only event created to improve the emotional wellbeing of men.
The theme for this gathering is “The Authentic Man” and as such men will be encouraged to remove the "masks" we tend to wear at different times, own and express their wounds, and empower themselves by claiming their authenticity. All attendees will share a beautiful weekend of connection, openness, authenticity, depth, support, respect and trust as they experience a range of different exercises and activities designed to allow them to explore their self-concept.
This event will run counter to the often narrow and repressive culture of traditional masculinity, where superficial conversation, competitiveness, disconnection and suppression of emotion tend to rule. Instead, you will connect deeply with other men, form support networks and community, and you will have the opportunity to develop your emotional literacy.
What ‘The Authentic Man’ can offer you is the opportunity – to recharge in nature, to connect with like-minded men, to sit in a space of stillness and safety, and to have some fun.
We invite you to join us in exploring your own unique expression of positive masculinity.
We hope to see you there.
