'Cultivating Authenticity with Women'
What do women want? What do men want? What do you want?
Have you ever wondered how women experience you? What kind of an impact you make on them – if any? In this series you will meet and work with real, aware and honest women who will provide reflections & insights into yourself, and into your ways of relating. You will have the opportunity to explore your foundations for the intimacy & connection that you are seeking - in such a way that you can take what you learn and apply it to your life.
Reflections & Insights:
Women are triggers for a great many men. Whether we like it or not, whether we choose it or not, we are to some degree affected by their presence. This can be a golden opportunity to be exposed to our (conscious and/or unconscious) fears and patterns around not being good enough.
It is golden because these things affect us all the time, and workshops like this just bring 'what is already there' to the surface. And when you have sight of your shadow and begin to know it is when it can evolve.
Also women generally tend to be more sensitive to human resonance than men. Not all women, not all the time. But as a solid general rule we can say that the women will be able to sense into the person you are differently from the way most men could, and give you their insightful reflective impressions in various specific practices.
And of course being human sometimes they will be wrong, or they will project stuff about some other man/men or their own masculine (yang) side [or 'animus' if you know Carl Jung's work].
This too is a fantastic opportunity for participants to get to know their own wisdom and to stay in your center in the face of a woman's -perceived or real- disapproval. (Rather than letting it knock you off balance.)
Intimacy & Connection:
How does this sound as a life goal…? Relationships where you both feel recognised, valued and appreciated, where you both feel inspired and powerful and able open to ever-deeper layers of yourself. Where she accepts and loves all of you because you accept yourself, and where you both bring all of you into deep, intimate lovemaking.
When you are engaging with a woman, she will have a sense of what is beneath your words, and will respond to that. A woman yearns to sense your feeling world, often without even knowing it, and her body will be telling her a lot about you that you quite likely don’t even notice. A man who IS aware of what he is feeling, and is RIGHT there with it, is a big turn on to a woman, and is the kind of man most women will go out of their way to connect with.
Women yearn for a man who has conscious access to all of himself - his sexuality, his full range of physical sensations, his power, his emotions, his vulnerabilities - a man who is comfortable with who he is. Where she wants to feel you is very definitely ‘in your body’ and not ‘in your head’.
When a man is willing to be present to his whole self, to his whole experience, there is a remarkable alchemy that can take place with a woman. When she feels ‘held’ within a conscious space, a woman can open into a deeper awareness of her own experience – she will fully open only when she trusts you can hold all of her.
If you want a close, passionate, fulfilling relationship with a woman you have to be willing to bring all of yourself to the encounter, and to stay ‘in you’ no matter what gets thrown your way.
When a woman meets an authentic man she becomes fully alive – radiant, sensual, exciting and powerful in her femininity. Women long for such opportunities, and deeply appreciate and open to a man who inspires them to express their fullness, and who holds a space of power and integrity for her to awaken in.
We present this work from a heterosexual perspective, because that is our own life experience, without assuming that this is everyone’s choice or preference.
