Many of us males have not been raised to be conscious men. Understanding masculinity may help us become more aware—more conscious.
The Power of Story to help us Grow…
I spent a many years living in Oregon, USA, where I was exposed to Native American traditions. I often attended sweat lodge ceremonies. We ‘suffered’ the discomfort together in the stifling heat and darkness so our intention and resolve would be pure and strong. We put our ‘prayers’ into the ‘peace pipe’ that was handed around. We prayed for friends, to end war, for the animals, the wild places and the healing of the planet.
I was told it did not matter what religion I was. We could all sweat together, Buddhist, Muslim, Catholic or atheist—we all had the same colour blood—I liked that!
