2012 - The Year of the Warrior?
At the eginning of each year, people make resolutions of how they are going to change. I am not different. This year I have already written about one of my resolutions in the new year. This year another of my resolutions has to do with my Men's Studies. Recently Men's Group 101, a partnership between Tripp Lanier(The New Man Podcast) and Jayson Gaydiss, had a New Year sale on their program. The sale seemed good and I was in a resolution mode so I purchased it.
What does this mean!
OMG! Does this mean I'm going to start a men's group in 2012? Perhaps, I don't know. However, at the very least, I hope to be a part of one in 2012. You are probably thinking, "That sounds great Daryl, but why would you want to be part of a mens group?"
For me a mens group is yet another way for me to connect with my sacred masculine. Having grown up in an all female household I've felt disconnected for a long time. Only recently have I begun to connect with my personal maleness. Now I feel it is time to connect with other men with a desire to connect with the sacred masculine.
Have you ever wished you had a circle of Men who you met with regularly, who "had your back" and were committed to your greatness as a man?
The quote above is from an email I got from Men's Group 101 that I think sums it up the best. To have a group of guys who have your back when you need it, which includes calling you on your own bullshit, sounds like a way to empower mens towards extra-ordinary lives.
I realize this post doesn't say much about what exactly will happen. What I'm saying is, I'm open to something happening and I'm taking steps towards it - starting with the purchase of the Men's Group 101 program. I'm not sure where it will take me but I'll share with you along the way in future Wednesday Warrior posts.
