Men’s Initiatory Journey

Mark´s vision of ´menswork´ underwent considerable evolution between 2010 and 2015, and in 2017 he launched a new project: One for One. The project aims to unite self-knowledge, ecology and social activism. You can visit it here: www.oneforone.men

 
Brotherhood, Initiation,
and the path of Radical Manhood.

With Mark Josephs
and friends
A series of gatherings in a group of men
committed to un-shaming male power,
to no longer being spun out
by our grief, anger and confusion,
to making choices
from a place of wide-awake awareness,
to owning the dignity
of our masculinity,
to ourselves becoming the radical men
who need to emerge in our times ~
men who are individuated
and self-honouring enough
to be able to truly honour the women.

 

This is a path of commit-
ment, truth, brotherhood, honouring of both the masculine and feminine and a deep intimacy with oneself. It has been challenging, painful, exciting and profound and such an important landmark in my personal evolution.
I. H., Local Businessman – Initiatory Journey 2009

A journey of discipline, brotherhood, tender challenge, deep honesty, and spiritual expansion ~ it will equip you to quietly (or loudly) walk your boldest, most heartfelt talk.

“Words can’t fully describe the transformation I have experienced in going through the Initiatory Journey. It is fundamentally the most important thing I have done in my life. It is the time that I finally came out of the darkness and stood up for myself and began reclaiming my power, wisdom and heart. I can now choose to step into life rather than be tossed around by it. I am now proud to be a man.”

Gavin Barnett, IT Programme Manager – Initiatory Journey 2009

“This course is not just about a group of men coming together doing ‘manly’ things, talking about our wounds and struggles, doing rituals and drumming round a camp fire (although some of those elements are there), nor is it just another series of workshops to be added to the list of other great experiences that may have been had. This is a path that doesn’t begin and end with the timetable of events. It is a path of commitment, truth, brotherhood, honouring of both the masculine and feminine and a deep intimacy with oneself. It has been challenging, painful, exciting and profound and such an important landmark in my personal evolution.”

I. H., Local Businessman – Initiatory Journey 2009

2013 will be the seventh year of The Initiatory Journey. Numbers are limited to 24 participants. Six men from previous years’ journeys will be assisting Mark in ‘holding’ this journey.
