Awakening the Conscious Man Intensive

The Awakening the Conscious Man (ACM) intensive opens a doorway to an extraordinary journey – navigating through your often unfamiliar internal world, we explore contemporary masculinity, encountering hidden dimensions of your ‘self’, and casting light onto your shadow.

The workshop cultivates a more balanced sense of masculinity, delivering practical, implementable strategies for being more authentic, heartfelt and joyful – and to journey through life in a better way. It is is facilitated by David Mallard President of Melbourne Men’s Group Inc. with the amazing and deeply experienced MMG leadership team.  Note: the workshop is limited to 16 people.

What men say about ACM:


During the workshop some of the themes we will explore include:

♦ The context of our consumer culture, the ‘mania of modernity’ and ‘success’

♦ Within the context of the prevailing culture, contemporary masculinity including insights from ‘The Man Box’ research

♦ The Nature Based Map of the Human Psyche including the facets of psychological wholeness and sub-personalities.

♦ Deeply stored often ‘untended’ parts including grief and shame

♦ Meditation and deep imagination

♦ Altered states of consciousness, and the unspoken language of ritual

♦ The uplifting power of acknowledgment and appreciation, and lots, lots more!!
