    Subject: Embodying the Awakened Masculine

    Embodying the Awakened Masculine

    For men who are committed to transformation, nothing can replace
    direct, ongoing reflection from other men. A sacred circle of men is
    being called forth in order to explore the limitless boundaries of
    Freedom, and to embody the Awakened Masculine. Men who will stand for
    your powerful transformation, and challenge you to live at your edge,
    and step powerfully into your true purpose.

    About once a week, you should sit down with your closest men friends
    and discuss what you are doing in your life and what you are afraid
    of doing. The conversation should be short and simple. You should
    state where you are at. Then, your friends should give you a
    behavioral experiment, something you can do that will reveal
    something to you, or grant more freedom in your life.
    David Deida, "The Way of the Superior Man"

    From: Greg Aurand
    What is the role of the Awakened Man in the 21st century? Our world
    is literally dying for men who are living from the heart of integrity
    and purpose. Can we evolve beyond our conditioned masculine roles and
    live the lives were meant to live? How can we move through fear,
    failure, and family patterns to open our hearts? And once the heart
    is open, how will it connect to our sexuality? Body, mind, and spirit
    - how can they dance harmoniously together? How can we lovingly
    interact with women and fully embody our masculine nature? And how
    can we connect with or create a community of men that can support us
    in embodying the mature, awakened masculine on this planet?

    These questions and more are explored during the Men's Initiation
    Weekend, and over the course of the following 24 weeks. Following the
    initiation weekend, Men's Group meetings will continue on the first
    and third Wednesday evenings of each month, for the following 24
    weeks. The weekend is limited to 12 participants.
    Led by Greg Aurand, a trained facilitator and men's group leader,
    this weekend and series of evening intensives are designed to open
    the mind, heart and body, and allow the arising of the authentically
    powerful masculine in each participant. In addition to weekly
    meetings, participants can expect to receive regular homework
    assignments. Private sessions with Greg are available as a supplement
    to the curriculum.

    The reflection that men receive from women is constantly changing,
    and often greatly dependent upon a variety of external circumstances.
    When a man attempts to guide his life without accurate reflection and
    feedback, it's difficult for him to stay clearly aligned with his
    purpose. Other men offer powerful and authentic feedback that allows
    for greater success and powerful transformation in the lives of their
    male counterparts. Men's groups offer a safe container for this
    interaction to occur.

    During the Men's Initiation Weekend and subsequent meetings, you will
    be surrounded by a group of supportive men who are committed to their
    own and each individual member's personal and spiritual growth.
    Facilitated by Greg Aurand, a trained facilitator for The Way of the
    Superior Man Men's Group Curriculum, inspired by the teachings of
    David Deida, you will be guided by discussion and experiential
    exercises, to live an Authentic Life of Integrity and Purpose.

    Over the following weeks together, you will be guided and empowered to:

    Grow beyond your fears and habits through the heart-connected
    challenges of other men.
    Fully embody your depth of consciousness so everyone can feel it.
    Give and receive heartfelt feedback on how well you are living your
    life and spiritual practice.
    Regardless of your specific orientation, the most valuable focus in
    men's work is the expression of the truth of our own experience. It's
    through men hearing other men express the honest story of their lives
    that most healing results.
    Aaron R. Kipnis, Ph.D., "Knights Without Armor"

    Live aligned with your deepest life's purpose.
    Penetrate your woman with your love and presence so deeply that she
    opens to God.
    Live at your edge with fearless presence.
    When men are together they will say things that they will not say
    when a woman is present.
    Robert Bly, "The Secret Life of Men"

    With Registration, each man will receive a copy of David Deida's
    book, "The Way Of The Superior Man: A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the
    Challenges of Woman, Work, and sexua| Desire." The Way of the Superior
    Man is David Deida's primary sourcebook on masculine spiritual
    practice. This is a must read for every man who wants to live a life
    of integrity, authenticity, and freedom. Learn how essential it is to
    know your purpose in the world.

    What is your true purpose in life? What do women really want? What
    makes a good lover? If you're a man reading this, you've undoubtedly
    asked yourself these questions -- but you may not have had much luck
    answering them. Until now.

    In The Way of the Superior Man, David Deida explores the most
    important issues in men's lives -- from career and family to women
    and intimacy to love and spirituality -- to offer a practical
    guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity, authenticity, and
    freedom. Join this bestselling author and internationally renowned
    expert on sexua| spirituality for straightforward advice, empowering
    skills, body practices, and more to help you realize a life of
    fulfillment, immediately and without compromise.

    "It's is time to evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no
    heart," writes David Deida. It is also time to evolve beyond the
    sensitive and caring wimp ideal, all heart and no spine." The Way of
    the Superior Man presents the ultimate challenge -- and reward for
    today's man: to discover the "unity of heart and spine" through the
    full expression of consciousness and love in the infinite openness of
    the present moment.

    An excerpt from Way of the Superior Man:

    Admit to yourself that if you had to choose one or the other, the
    perfect intimate relationship or achieving your highest purpose in
    life, you would choose to succeed at your purpose. Just this self-
    knowledge often relieves much pressure a man feels to prioritize his
    relationship when, in fact, it is not his highest priority.

    Your mission is your priority. Unless you know your mission and have
    aligned your life to it, your core will feel empty. Your presence in
    the world will be weakened, as will your presence with your intimate
    partner. The next time you notice yourself "giving in" to your woman,
    postponing your mission and denying your true purpose in order to
    spend time with her, stop. Tell your woman that you love her, but you
    cannot deny your heart's purpose. Tell her that you will spend 30
    minutes (or some specific time) with her in absolute attention and
    total presence, but then you must return to carry on your mission.

    Your woman will be more fulfilled with 30 minutes a day of undivided
    attention and ravishing love than she will with a few hours of your
    weak and divided presence when your heart really isn't into it. Time
    you spend with your woman should be time you really want to be with
    her more than anything else. If you'd rather be doing something else,
    she'll feel it. Both of you will be dissatisfied.

    I started sharing David Deida's work with the San Diego Tantra Puja
    Community in July, when I facilitated a white tent event for the men
    during the July Tantra Puja. We have been holding men's group meeting
    since about that time, and because we've had new men showing up at
    every meeting, it's been difficult to go as deep as I would like.
    Having a group of men that are truly committed to each other's growth
    and transformation allows for this work to be much more potent. I
    like David Deida's work because it offers some very strong
    distinctions and practices for embodying healthy masculine energy.

    I intend for the men to come away from the initiation weekend with a
    few things:
    Some strong energetic techniques that they can practice daily on
    their own (such as microcosmic orbit breathing and energy
    recirculation; an understanding about how to control and retain their
    ejaculations - which I think is a vital step in embodying a masculine
    essence; and perhaps some powerful Chi Kung postures).

    A strong bond and commitment to one another's growth and

    Trust, Honesty, and Authenticity with one another (I want everyone to
    truly get that it's completely safe and appropriate share any part of
    our "brokenness" with one another).

    One other element that I think will be very powerful, is using an
    Archetypal Modality to help each man identify his current personality
    type and characteristics. I think that the Enneagram Personality
    Typing offers a powerful vehicle for this - I use an Enneagram
    process that speaks from an Integral perspective. It's very useful in
    identifying the Unhealthy, Average, and Healthy traits of each type,
    and exploring what the next evolutionary step is for each personality

    I'm dedicated to serving you to embody your Awakened Masculine
    Essence, and helping you discover, and align your life with, your
    True Purpose. Women are naturally drawn to men that are passionate
    about something in their lives, and who living from a core of
    integrity and purpose - What are you waiting for?

    Yours Sincerely,

    Greg Aurand

    • This is so great!   by  greggechols     16 y     720
      You are so "in there" with the most right-on approaches to living life, Liora, and thanks for sharing this! I haven't taken any of David Deida's workshops, but I "know" people who have and it's amazing stuff. What he talks about for relationships is a necessary requirement for those on the spiritual path. I've tried some of his techniques and they are, indeed, quite powerful, fulfilling, and wonderful. ge

        Thanks, Gregg!

        What's not talked about here, but what I felt when I read this, is how this approach benefits women, not only through the men they are associated with, but for themselves directly. I'm speaking of women who are working on integrating their own "masculine energies". For such a long time I felt repelled by the idea of "integrating the masculine" within me, as I thought the "masculine" represented violence, aggression, war, destruction, rape, dominance, etc. To have the writers here speak it, this is far from what the masculine is: the masculine is assertiveness, self-confidence, powerful and positive self-mastery, healing sexuality, active purpose of BEing. What women wouldn't want a man in her life who embodied that? What woman wouldn't want to embody that kind of Masculine Energy within herself?
