As an MSC teacher, you have no doubt noticed that men tend to be a very small percentage of your classes. Learn more about the particular challenges most men face when considering and participating in MSC classes. This webinar will provide information about some of the underlying causes of this tendency as well as possible ways to engage men more effectively. Participants will learn about:
- the traditional male role and its relation to toxic masculinity;
- why vulnerability tends to trigger shame and defensiveness in men;
- how reframing self-compassion as courageous can inspire men to participate.
Free Webinar #1 (MSC Teachers)
October 23, 2018, 9-10 a.m. P.S.T.
Free Webinar #2 (General Public)
Nov. 1, 2018, 9-10 a.m. P.S.T.
In addition, you will be introduced you to a newer hybrid approach to working with men called Ultimate Courage. This workshop has been developed and facilitated by Daniel and his colleagues Steve Hickman and David Spound. It will include an exploration of particular exercises from the workshop that are not specifically from MSC. This webinar will be a much more extensive, in-depth exploration of the short presentation given at the MSC International Teacher Festival in the Netherlands. The intention is to facilitate the Ultimate Courage workshop throughout the world and to enlist your support in sharing information about this workshop to men who may benefit.
The time has come to bring this important work forward to meet the crisis of masculinity that threatens our world.
Daniel and CMSC Executive Director Steve Hickman will be offering the Ultimate Courage Workshop for Men again in San Diego, California on November 17 – 19, and spaces are still available.
