The Way of the Mature Masculine

It represents the return to this earth, at this time, of the sacred encounter between men in search of their strength and integrity.

As a man it would be helpful to ask yourself the following questions:

– What does it mean for me to be a mature man?
– Do I bring a healthy and balanced masculinity into the world?
– How do I relate to the anger I feel?

These questions have helped me to unfold-flourish-facilitate a better version of me as a man and to recognise myself as such.

 Every man can access his own personal questions; evolutionary questions that help us to go inside ourselves. Let’s see: what are yours?

What happens when the inner Masculine is unripe and immature?

Most of the problems we see manifest in society today are the result of the actions and thoughts of a sick, despotic masculine, out of balance with his inner parts, the bearer of an insane conflict and disintegration:
a man who moves about the world in an adult body but with an immature and fragmented inner principle, with an adolescent approach to the challenges and every relationship in life.

Transformation

In ancient times, the transition from puberty to adolescence and then on to adulthood was celebrated in a tribal setting.

Through trials and initiation rites, the child and then the adolescent became aware of their natural transformation and were thus seen and recognised for what they were becoming by thieir family, tribe, and the system to which they belonged, sometimes even through name changes.

These ritual practices allowed individuals to have greater self-awareness and thus greater resources to find their place in the world as mature men.

Obviously, with the advent and development of technocratic society over the centuries, these practices have disappeared, if not almost cancelled: one of the many reasons why we humans remain bound to a chronological age that does not correspond to our actual age.

Children and Growing up

All too often, in Western culture, children grow up without adult male guidance: a physical and spiritual non-presence.

Fathers are often absent for various reasons: in the developmental stage the child has no reference points to which he can draw inspiration, so once he is pushed by the events of life to go out into the world, the boy is deprived – almost orphaned – of a secure and solid inner foundation on which he can draw to face the challenges. In the worst-case scenario, he would find models of male inspiration in approximate and aberrant places, such as the so-called “gang culture”

Learning and Sacred Principles 

Finding each other amongst men, creating a protected sacred space where we can slow down; a circle where we can share practices and rituals for the awakening of our own mature masculinity, consciously bringing up the archetype of the warrior within us, transforming toxic anger into available creative energy – including our feminine part, too often disowned – is a vital part of the work.

Warriors who can learn to feel the sacred male and female principles within themselves become warriors who are determined and strong, without losing in tenderness.

From this space, it is possible to return to the world with greater determination, strength and courage; qualities that we can make available in all areas of our lives: at work, in our relationships with our children and partners, and in any other action we undertake in the world.
