The Men's Den Project
This came about by learning of way too many suicides in a man’s world. Men are way too precious to keep losing when it’s too late to even try and talk about what’s going on. There is a solution to every problem. Sure, it may look different to the solution you had in mind, but it’s still a solution and it could very well be a temporary one too, perhaps you could try it out for size and go from there?
Let’s together open our hearts and lead the way for men to talk openly, freely and without hesitation or concern about how you feel and definitely about what’s going on inside your headspace. Let’s together clear the mind clutter and create space for whatever else wants to climb in and provide you awesome peace of mind and show you your true happy place!
Are you a man who squirms at the thought of your feelings coming out? Or are you a guy who loves to talk deep and about the inner stuff?
OInside Men’s Den we open some great treasure boxes, sometimes without even realising that’s what is happening. In 2020 we were going to organise a retreat weekend away for the boys, but due to COVID-19 we put it all on pause. We are thinking about it again now and thought we’d run it by you. If you are located here in Adelaide SA, is it something you would attend? A 1 or 2 night getaway for boys?
In the context of life, the man is a leader. He is the protecting force who surrounds his pride. He is the keeper of strength and security.
Has this changed and what context are men viewed as today + what is their (your) role?
Discovering your personal strengths can be life-changing. It’s funny though, you really think we would know what our strengths are as individuals, but when this question is asked, it’s often answered with a blank “ummmm i don’t know”.
It’s almost like we are afraid to talk about what we like about ourselves, which is all too common.
Men, yes you guys, many find it hard to talk about feelings let alone what may be seen as “bragging” about how good you are at something. Ego would come into play then right?
What does a man think about somebody with an ego? Do you talk to your man buddies about this behaviour? Or do you condone it and see it as nothing. It’s no biggie because you can just ignore him or tell him to “quieten down mate” and carry on?
