War Cry – Integrating the Primal Masculine

March 22 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

30 men came together to connect to their own unique War Cry in Toronto and I am still integrating all of the things that came from it. It was nourishing to acknowledge the capacity that male-bodied humans have to hold the problems, incongruencies, and challenges that our life and work shove in front of our faces every day.

It was beautiful to witness men offering help to a brother while holding his own responsibility in the interaction. We saw what was possible when we gave ourselves room to express… without the story or a need to explain ourselves. Some men sat in their own aura and stayed in the solo exercise or meditated; others roared while their brothers cried… I want to say that it was equal parts beautiful and important, but that doesn’t even begin to describe it.

The solo exercises were intended to warm up our bodies and engage our softer nature before touching our harder nature. At the apex of the partnered exercises, I asked the men what feeling was alive in their bodies; they answered trust, present, calm, sovereign, liberated, and many other things we long to touch.

In every man is a warrior — a little boy who wakes up a man and has to choose to wake up in the morning and fight through his day. He battles demons nobody else can possibly see, for reasons only he can understand… in order to earn his peace when he returns to his home for the night. Some days he returns victorious, and other days, the demons leave their marks.

Every man’s War Cry is unique, it can be a rumble, growl, yawp, or roar. When you give yourself permission to feel, sound your War Cry, and integrate before sharing your truth, we can have fewer anxiety-ridden days and enliven more purpose in your interactions.

The masculine used to have many spaces to shake off the war before going home to our peace. This workshop is offered as such a space… it is primarily a meditation with invitations to active solo and partnered exercises. Secondarily, it is an opportunity to connect in brotherhood and remember the power of our own truth shared freely.
