The father is a person who provides family life, but to do it he is more often absent than present at home. Nowadays more and more common is that the father, for example after his divorce, does not live with his son. This has a huge impact on each family member. For an adolescent boy absent or removed father is one of the main reason why later in life will not be able to identify himself psychologically, biologically or socially with other men .
Boys’ initiation ritual was performed by our ancestors for thousands of years(There was “First haircut initiation” in Poland). The record of these initiation rituals still flows in our blood and is stored in our DNA, which after all, inherited partly from our male ancestors. Modern civilization does not give space to such activities. There would be the best for the political system if we were asexual, docile and always let themselves be intimidated. For economic systems it does not matter whether we have our identity, as long as we took loans and bought heaps of things that we do not really need.
Women want loving, sensitive and gentle men, and when they already get them, after a while, it turns out that something is wrong and demand strong, brave man with his hands of woodcutter, not a pianist. As a result of this confusion men often choose to be a big boy rather than mature.
The boy, whose father did not carry through the process of initiation, does not develop in himself his real male qualities, but only out of desperation he distorts what he was able to see on TV or by the lack of their dignity, use violence and brutality. Often it is also possible, that after leaving or distancing of his father, the role of education takes the mother. Her care and love are hard to be replaced in childhood, but from the beginning of adolescence, mothers are not able to give their sons what they will need for a happy life in the future. Son raised by his mother take her female energy, which, if not integrated and deprived of male equivalent, will result in manipulation, brutality, susceptibility to depression and eternal immaturity.
The key is also the fact that usually the father, who has not received the men’s knowledge and introduction to adult life from his father, will not be able to train to adulthood his sons. The quality of tree is largely determined by its roots, and very few of us were lucky enough to get a real fatherly love, initiation and blessing for adult life. The first problems resulting from the lack of a proper relationship with his father appear after early twenties. It is then usually speaks up hidden need for initiation, and because of its lack, young men start to make mistakes, to mask the lack of it by workaholism, addictions or be stuck in unsuccessful relationships. Its highest point reaches between thirty and forty years of age. If they will not be healed in advance, they will swell and cast a shadow over all subsequent life including a bitter old age.
Aim of the workshop:
In this workshop you will find your place in the world as a man. No matter whether you are a son, father, brother or grandfather, you will be guided through the process of initiation supported by the male energy of other participants. You will cleanse your relationships with other members of your family, and you understand more yourself. You will discover the true masculine energies and you will be surprised how much it is different from that promoted on TV by heroes of action films and other political macho. You will understand what a treasure you have within yourself, when you will discover and start using.
Program of the workshop:
Day 1 – We try to understand each other and rules of the workshop. You relax with music and begin to journey inward.
Day 2 – We let go of our present adult life. We examine our relationship with the father. We re-experience again our childhood and restore our memories of that period. We listen to experiences shared by other participants.
Day 3 – We work on the responsibility and identity. Each participant chooses masculine features, which they want to focus on their development. In the evening we conduct an initiation ritual. It has nothing to do with sexuality, however, it concerns the emotionality and physicality of an adult man. This is the introduction of a boy in a man’s world.
Day 4 – We meditate by male track. We learn to feel our strength inside without the use of it on our surroundings. We make a practical commitment to life and thus we confirm our new masculine identity.
