Additional resources on male hormone cycles from the Ultimate Men’s Summit I would recommend would be:
“Energy Medicine The Ultimate Power Tool for 21st Century Men” by Jed Diamond
“How Different Are We The remarkable Difference between Male and Female Brains” by Michael Gurian
“Unintentional Suicide Claims over 500 000 Men Annually” by Gordon Clay
Men throughout history have always been required to make sacrifices in order to ensure the good of the species and the security of their loved ones. I believe that this is to be respected and honoured. However, I do not believe that we retain the right, in an age when survival is essentially assured, to demand that Men continue to make such sacrifices.
Ultimately, the power to sacrifice makes Men capable of accomplishing incredible feats, and when he has some purpose that is worthy of sacrifice; it makes him happier, healthier, stronger, and wiser. But if he wishes to tap that incredible power source, it must be on his terms.
Murray Pearson asked me to voice in on what I believe we can do to help Men who have been raped to understand and begin processing their experiences.
Ultimately, I believe it is about creating Male spaces and helping Men develop a Core identity that is not predicated on feminine approval or their sexuality. We need to be able to step away from our sex lives in order to be able to see what is happening in them.
Murray’s question was in response to another video that I created.
Check out Murray’s channel and learn about his struggle with the family court system.
In my last article I talked about very subtle emotional and social abuses that Men often face in their relationships. Much of the abuse that I have seen levelled at Men is emotional or psychological in nature. Over the course of the next four articles I will be describing other forms of abuse that are frequently used against Men and Boys that I have encountered in coaching, and in simply spending time on forums for men and researching Men’s issues. I believe that it is very important to give solid examples and descriptions of each of these and how they work for a simple reason: Men often don’t know how to describe their abuse.
By creating this series, and eventually a book derived from it, I hope to give Men who are suffering from an abusive relationship to be able to recognize themselves and their experiences in the text.
When we talk about physical abuses, we usually talk about battering and intimate partner violence, a form of violence that is both terrifying to consider, and far less prevalent and gendered than we tend to think. Relationships with repetitive, directed violence, either sporadic or regular, are fairly rare. However there are other forms of physical abuse that are far more common, but because they do not involve striking a person to harm them, they are not generally visible in our public narrative. I want to talk about four forms of abuse that are physical in nature, but are unlikely to be identified as abuse by pundits, or even by Men who are suffering through them.
“Lives have been altered in fundamental ways, and later, after they acquire a more complete understanding of what goals are actually attainable, many are left facing a lot of pain and frustration. And yet, there's no culture of complaint.”
