Lars: Well, Bianca can help you. She's got nurse's training. Gus: No she doesn't. That's because she's a plastic...thing. Lars: That's amazing. Did you hear that? Bianca said God made her to help people.
I want to tell you that the Men and the Future symposium that was meant to take place in Frankfurt in May/June has been postponed. I have, together with other contributors, been in dialogue with Nick Duffel and Robert Fischer about the event and the outcome of those talks is that the Symposium will be postponed until next year.
I was looking forward to connecting with good men from all over Europe in Frankfurt, but I feel that this decision is the right one and have been an advocate for it. I feel really good about the Symposium next year now and know that the extra time will allow Nick and Robert, with the help of me and other men, to really build momentum around this important initiative.
When I did my New Warrior Training adventure, I met Jason Schroeder, a South African of shamanistic bent living in Scotland. He has started a gathering of men there which goes by the name of "Suns of MAC". They have made a video that shows what you might expect in a men's group. I love it and find it an inspiring glance into the relational space that opens when men dare be authentic with one another. Have a look:
