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.

It is is facilitated by David Mallard^ President of Melbourne Men’s Group Inc. with the amazing and deeply experienced MMG team, supported by depth psychologist Chris Caldwell.
