We hear regularly that masculinity is in crisis. From the sky high suicide rates, to young men increasingly falling behind women in school and university. What does a vision of positive masculinity even look like, one that works for the modern world now the old models are no longer fit for purpose?

Even the concept of masculinity itself is increasingly being challenged, when some of the biggest newspapers run stories like 'Why Can't We Hate Men': https://washingtonpost.com/gdpr-consent/?destination=%2fopinions%2fwhy-cant-we-hate-men%2f2018%2f06%2f08%2ff1a3a8e0-6451-11e8-a69c-b944de66d9e7_story.html%3f&utm_term=.e2bb2e1425c8

Rebel Wisdom is founded on the conviction that men are being challenged like never before to grow up and show up in the world. At the same time, we have lost many of our traditional methods of initiation into manhood, and spaces where we can develop ourselves as men.

We run weekend retreats called 'The New Masculinity' to help men develop a new relationship with their masculinity.

In this evening event, we will provide a space for men and women to inquire into this topic for themselves.

The evening will be led by Rebel Wisdom, and include Rafia Morgan, who has been leading men's groups since the 1970s. Growing up in Berkeley, California during the first wave of the women's movement, he believes that many of the same dynamics are present today, and that some of the same lessons can be learned by a new generation of men and women.
