When men don’t examine their beliefs about what it means to be a man, they may unwittingly give themselves over to a social contract and rules of manhood which lead to unhealthy expressions of masculinity. The result: too many men feeling disconnected from the deeper dimensions of healthy masculinity.
These two sessions will explore what healthy and integrated masculinity looks like and how we can develop ways to model these qualities in our lives. In session one, come watch “The Mask You Live In,” a powerful documentary that follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definitions of Masculinity. Session two probes the various Myths of Manhood as we discuss the movie, share experiences of our own manhood, and reflect on healthy, integrated masculinity.
