Aspects of Anger: How Men Experience, Express and Own Their Anger

Posted by Kurt on Nov 16, 2011 in Meetings, Relationships, Resources, Work

Anger is not primarily a masculine emotion, search doctor but it certainly seems to be one that men have easy access to.  Even the guy with the most limited of emotional repertoire will be well acquainted with anger.  There are rather primordial human reasons for this, recuperation but anger is also used as a shield by many men: they feel (fill in any softer emotion), order but it is safer to switch to anger.  And, in some circles, this may even be seen as more acceptable.  It is a way guys can try to be strong, but, ultimately, it just leads to a very limited (and possibly destructive) way of experiencing their lives.

Regardless of where it comes from, anger is often an issue for many men.  They can often vacillate between trying to contain (sometimes unsuccessfully) too much expression of anger and trying to live up to the postmodern notion of being the “nice guy” and not show it.  Struggles with anger with men can hurt relationships, lead to health problems, hold guys back on their personal development, and even land them in jail.  This is certainly a topic that could use some more discussion.

For the rest of this year, The Men’s Group will focus the blog and meetings to this important topic.  There are many ways to approach anger in men’s lives and we will take time to look at it from a few different angles.

Stay tuned!

We are going to spend the the rest of the summer talking integrity.  Guys really tend to struggle with this, so we thought we would spend three evenings talking about integrity in our in working lives, our personal development and in our relationships.  We’ll take a different angle on it each night, with new talking points, different exercises and great resources for you to really get a handle on integrity in your own life and start making a difference.

 

More details will follow soon about the meeting a week from now.  But, if you are wanting more now, check out these two very cool bits of media with Brian Johnson, a guy who has really nailed this whole integrity thing….

Two Great Opportunities for Guys

Posted by Kurt on Jun 6, 2011 in Resources

Men’s Group Upcoming Events

I found two great opportunities for you to connect with some of the ‘whos who’ in the men’s movement. 

 

The Way of the Evolutionary Man Summit
(started yesterday, therapy June 6th)
(June 10 – 19)

Each day of the summits there will be teleconference calls that you can join to listen to and connect with some amazing people who you would normally only read in books or listen to in podcasts.  This really is an opportunity not to be missed!

Even if you can’t make it to the any teleconference calls, sick you can download all of them as mp3s later.

The best part about these teleconferences is that you will not be charged anything to attend them!

So, join up if you are interested and let me know what you think of them.
