how men are feeling in this rise of the feminine …

With so much talk about women’s empowerment and the feminine energy rising .. indeed that is the title of the book I am working on … How does this make men feel?

I got an insight into that when I attended the Summer Gathering of Social Change Leaders at Canada’s lifelong learning centre, Hollyhock, on Cortes Island, BC. A beautiful place full of beautiful conversations. Here’s one such conversation over breakfast on the last day.

Fellow attendee and composer Gary Malkin shared his insights from hosting a men’s circle. I’d held a Women’s Gathering in one of the afternoon Open Space sessions (see my post reporting on this) and he felt inspired to spontaneously offer a similar circle for men. I am grateful to Gary for opening his heart and sharing what he felt about men today – from his personal perspective and as a collective summation of what he sees of other men.

He says this rising and call to women is also “for our inner feminine to rise in a way that scares the shit out of men” … and it “requires us to be engaged with our emotional and spiritual intelligence, and our receptivity to ‘I don’t know’ and to ‘flow’ “. Do watch the beautiful video interview and here this beautiful wisdom so useful for both men and women.
