I am a men’s mindset coach (Mettle Men in the Making). I have trained and facilitated with the Rites of Passage Institute and Mens Wellbeing. I have been on my own journey with fostering the warrior spirit through triathlons and other adventures (including paddling across Bass Strait in a sea kayak) as well as fostering the gardener spirit through raising twin boys (they need the warrior spirit too) and supporting my wife through her chronic illness. In saying that I am, and always will be, a Mettle Man in the making.

The Warrior in the Garden

The workshop is based on the quote “It’s better to be a warrior in a garden than a gardener in a war”. We all have some attributes of the warrior and the gardener but we are usually dominate in one.

The gardeners need to foster strength, courage and the strategies of war.

The warriors need to foster gentleness, calm and a practice of peace.

We all need to be comfortable in our natural state of either the warrior or the gardener and at the same time striving towards either gentleness or strength respectively.
