Warrior in the Garden: Lost ferality

This workshop explores the gap between the current social narrative about men in Australian society and the often contrary lived experience of men. The nature of a man is regularly portrayed as a story of shame and dysfunction, which contributes to a devalued sense of self for a lot of men. In my work with men in the area of domestic abuse I find a deeper struggle for acceptance and love which underpins men’s lives. Together we will look at positive steps to bring about freedom to be the strong individual man, partner, father, and rediscover aspects of the warrior nature which has been lost.
