One gift we discovered out of the COVID pandemic of 2020 was online video conferencing with zoom or the like as a way that men could continue to gather. Geographical boundaries became irrelevant. What was more important was the intention of the event. We may have come through the pandemic with physical meetings happening again but some of our online events continue on a regular basis. Below are the details with the person/s to contact for more information and links. These are open events for any man.
Please see below for further information about these events.
Morning Practice Sessions
Meditation, reflection and council on the nature of living life in brotherhood and community. They are open to all men - no previous experience or contact is required.
When? Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 8am - 9:15am
Where? Zoom. Link for all sessions: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/6053084133
This is an opportunity as neighbours and as a community of men to reflect and share on what we have found in our lives that may help or indeed hinder.
April's Council on POWERLESSNESS, SADNESS and HONESTY wil be hosted Saturday 2nd April 10:15am - 12:30pm:
“The only sadnesses that are dangerous and unhealthy are the ones that we carry around in public in order to drown them out with the noise” Rainer Maria Rilke.
How can we deal honestly with our feelings of powerlessness and sadness, and be accepting of the emotional risk and resilience required for us to live loud enough in our own hearts.
An opportunity as neighbours and as a community of men to reflect and share on what helps, what hinders and how this shows up in our lives.
All men are welcome all are needed – we share the same river.
When? First Saturday of each month.
Where? Zoom. Link for April session: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/6053084133 Password: 240671
Ardhan invites us to one of his breathwork sessions on a monthly basis as we have looked for new ways to come together during these turbulent times. If you are open to turning deeper into yourself - for healing, for meaning, for purpose, for inspiration then this is for you. Breathwork is an embodied practice well suited to men who are looking for this. It is similar to meditation but more active and works well using the online Zoom app. Ardhan is a trained Breathwork Facilitator (with 'Alchemy of Breath’).
When? 3rd Wednesday of each month
Where? Pre-event instructions/guidance can be found here: https://innerventures.me/breath/ or by contacting Ardhan using the address below
Gaychat for Queer Men
In the present era it was always going to be potentially problematic calling it ‘Gaychat’ when we now have such a long list of gender identities but had to call it something and its for any queer man at home or abroad.
When? 3rd Thursday of each month 7.00pm - 8.30pm
