Is that how you are feeling?
Men are deeply interested in something meaningful, dangerous, full of mystery and rewarding - something that will give them a great sense of purpose. A journey that will touch the core of their masculine spirit and make them feel radically alive. A magnificent journey that will make men feel powerful beyond measure.
The Authentic Male Journey touches on the five main themes of the masculine spirit: 1. The addictive system; 2. Men & grief; 3. The mother and father wound; 4. The five truths about life; and 5. Authentic Masculinity or True Self. These five themes are always present in the journey of the masculine heart.
“Felipe was able to journey through my specific circumstances & personality by using highly effective ways of companionship that really worked for me to get the breakthrough I was seeking. I would highly recommend his skill as as an effective counsellor” Male, 39 y/old.
Felipe Oliveira is a qualified counsellor, registered with Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA - Reg.23889), holding a Masters Degree in Counselling, where the focus of his researches were always around Authentic Masculinity, Sexuality and Spirituality.
“I am Christian of 40 years and was into a 2nd mid life crisis fighting depression at 63 years of age when I met Philippe. That encounter changed my life. Philippe was the catalyst that only a book could explain. There is no higher recommendation” Male, 64 y/old.

The work of keeping the man awake and open to the signs of changes or transition in his life are the main priority of the Authentic Male Journey. By trusting the process of staying in the unknown place of transformation, a man may find his own true, purpose, and pace of life.

In these spaces, the Authentic Male Journey and its nuances are explored and named, creating a safe space for men go deeper in their own reflections about life.
