Redefining masculinity in conversation with others who identify as men.

Inspired by bell hooks' book The Will to Change - Men, Masculinity and Love, Hugo Mega, with the support of Engagement, will facilitate four circles discussing the necessity of men's mental and emotional well-being in today’s society. 

During the circles, participants will be invited to reflect on personal perspectives on the mentioned themes, and they will be invited to share ideas from their own life experiences.

In exchange, learning tools from mindfulness, non-violent communication and imagery meditation will be offered, so that we may each express, reflect, and support ourselves and one another. Together, we hope to raise new forms of awareness about what being a man in this world can be.

Each circle will focus on a specific topic and related questions:

WE 27.11 Masculinity - How do I live and experience (my) masculinity?
TH 28.11 Emotions - How do I identify and share my emotions? What am I feeling at the moment? 
FR 29.11 Anger - How do I express and deal with anger?
SA 30.11 Sex & Sexuality - How do I relate to sexuality in terms of emotions, norms, and social expectations?

This series is open to people who identify as men. Welcome!
Limited capacity, reserve your spot.
