Feeling like a great sense of worthlessness - sense of powerlessness - lack of energy to work - low sex-drive - poor sense of life-purpose - discontentment - existential questions without substantial answers - trapped by the system - self-disconnected - numbness - feeling like a boy, not like a Man - great sense of failure - self-doubt - discouragement - unheard?

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.

‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍The sessions are individuals, approximately 45 minutes, running in a peaceful, private and confidential m‍‍‍anner.  
The service is offered in Brisbane, on the suburb of Carindale/Mainsfield and Kelvin Grove . Booking Fee applies.
