Interesting and worth a listen for both men and women. They waffle for the first 10 minutes or so but it gets better.
You could have written the course G
Interesting, looks like it talks of the new era of balanced male/female energies which I'm sure is on the way.
Some of these new kinds of men are pretty cool. Will have a looksy.
It's a fine line we males tread between displaying our emotions and appearing weak.
For literally hundreds of thousands of years, men have been taught, programmed and "wired" to keep our poker faces on. This is not just some macho bs, it was a matter of survival. Can you imagine a chatty, excitable man on a hunting expedition, or a man who cries easily facing off against a potential enemy?
Yet in the space of a few short lifetimes, things have changed dramatically. But only in certain ways. Women still look for the traditional stereotypes, because that's what nature programmed them to do. But both males and females are facing changing roles and more complex relationships. A dad has far more input, generally, than ever before into life at "the cave" (home). A mum is more likely to be a hunter, bringing home the bread and contributing financially, where for thousands of years, she would have been the "defender of the cave" while the man does the hunting. No longer does the man return from a hunting trip and simply sit in silence and firegaze (except at the telly!), but is more likely to be sharing housework duties and spending quality time with the children.
Sometimes it's a good thing for a guy to appear vulnerable and intimate, and sometimes definitely not. It's a matter of finding a balance.
There are, however, certain factions who would happily demasculinise the average male, as part of a very specific agenda. But that's a whole other subject and I do have a blog forthcoming on that subject.
LOL that wasn't quite what I meant Martin
Was tinking more of these kinds of dudes. All healers and shamans and metaphysical teachers, willing to go deep into feelings...but total warriors. Wouldn't wanna mess with any of em.

P.S. Looking forward to your blog Martin.
