AWAKENED MALE RETREAT

LogoEDIT66666.png

AWAKENED MALE CIRCLE by Wings to Awakening

One who seeks can find many answers about how a male should live. The awakened male gatherings and retreats are designed to remind males about the fundamental masculine energy and open the space for talking, experiencing and connecting in a very conscious space.

Masculine polarity is a part of duality.

From a holistic perspective, while we still solve dualistic and karmic questions, polarity is our key tool to use. Masculine energy is the power, potential and wisdom of a man as a human being. 

About the practice

For males to be strong and grounded, it's very important to see reality as it is. With the help of practices, we offer a safe space to touch on actual questions of life, see the suffering and struggle from different angles and by sharing the experience to understand better the way of nature. Some men in this event receive the power to tackle deep questions in life, and some get healing that they haven't gotten from fathers and teachers. 

The signs of traumas of masculine polarity that can be healed together:

- Having a competitive mind and aggression towards other males,

- Fear of relationships,

- Lack of clarity of one's path,

- Lack of energy and inspiration,

- Inability to get out of addiction, 

- Guilt, etc.

 

Masculine energy is something that sits in every human being and is expressed more in the male body. Nowadays a lot of men struggle with spiritual, family and professional questions due to suppressed and disconnected masculine energy. Currently, the whole society is not supporting males therefore disharmony takes place and different negative expressions happen.  

 

Naturally, every male during some part of life develops his ego focusing on outer goals like family, body, money, material objects etc. Understanding of masculinity is strongly connected to form and a world where everything changes (is relative). Only when a male experiences serious loss or radical change like health problems, separation from a woman, loss of business or property, and public punishment etc., attention starts to refocus more on the inner world. In many cases, after a heavy hit, real questions start to be asked and the heart starts to be open for learning. Communication with other males and seeing this life paradigm might be supportive and healing. 

 

In order to achieve the state of awakening, one needs to understand and remove all the dirt that blocks the true potential to open up. Those who are developed more and have reached certain levels of inner light need practical and strategical support (wisdom) to maintain this state and be active in so-called real or practical life. 

 

An awakened male is a human with a dominant masculine energy that walks the path of light by supporting others on their path. Awakened male clearly understands the tasks of the family, ancestors and Universe and together with this energy is supported in very grounded daily activities. 

Awakened Male Gatherings and Retreats by Wings to Awakening are regular activities conducted with different methods to unite, heal and support men growth. 

Clear mind, 
Strong body,

TESTIMONIALS

I attended Gunar’s men’s fire circle last night. I’ve been involved with a few brilliant men’s groups including sacred sons but this experience was extraordinary. With the help of the fire and support of the circle I was able to release some old stories and move through some emotions that I didn’t know were there - I feel my spirit is revived again. It felt great to be doing such deep work in close proximity to central London! Gunar‘s wisdom and skills are very powerful which added to the sense of safety and the beautiful synchronicity that played out in the circle! I feel light, connected, supported and empowered to lead my life… and grateful! AL
