Something Sacred Shows its Light

We are Life, we just need to allow ourselves to do what Life does. Life is not waiting for something to happen, Life just makes it happen! Although events are sometimes not very peaceful or serene if we want to learn they always lead to something bigger and unique filled with much love and joy. This is the experience of being part of our men's group.

I can speak openly and confidently because the last two years have changed me so much that I cannot even recognize myself. I'm a more responsible, more independent and more confident man. All this because of the support, care, transparency and willingness to be an expression for something bigger.

Shared values ​​such as confidence, humility, integrity are the basis and framework for something great to take place and create a safe environment where people can be free to express themselves and expose themselves openly.

Our participation is essential to this process. Not only for our benefit but mainly for the benefit of the whole. And ultimately when we surrender to the group process in this way we create a possibility for something sacred to show its light.

Another important aspect is the commitment, without commitment nothing is possible and for us men in general commitment to something greater than ourselves is challenging because we are very attached to our sense of self-interested independence. So it is something else that goes against our conditioning, but every time we're together we experience more desire to be together and more care for what we are creating.

I want to thank everyone for the dedication they have had to this group, especially to Pete for his warmth and vision to create this evolutionary group that makes me feel so postively proud to be a man.
