Raising Kings Boot Camp: Honoring Men and Boys with Golden Eagle
May 25-June 5, 2015
Note: This course is open to men and women
Circle up with your fathers, sons, partners and brothers for this long-awaited SouLodge course. The women of SouLodge are in rigorous dialogue about how to interact more effectively with, understand, and honor our male counterparts. Our work with shadows, boundaries and fair communication has led us to want to continue this dialogue in the presence of the men in our lives. We feel that the time has come for next-level harmony and by inviting the men to dialogue with us, we’re vowing to raise our level of respect, honesty, and faith in our abilities to share the throne with you.
The focus of this course is to find new ways to perceive and honor the men and boys in our lives, as well as to draw upon the inspiration of those who have dedicated their lives to the study of men’s rites of passage.
The key phrase for this session is HONORING SACREDNESS IN MEN & BOYS
This live virtual course takes place in order to:
~Cultivate mutual respect between men and women of integrity for the betterment of partnership/family/world
~Strengthen the relationship between you and the men and boys in your life

~May 29 LIVE Activity: Painting the Sacred Masculine*
Boot Camp content is delivered in the form of:
-Live Recorded Spreecasts
*As part of this boot camp curriculum, we will transcend the rational/thinking realm and utilize visual creation in Painting the Sacred Masculine: Honoring the King Within. The purpose of bringing the sacred masculine to life visually is to develop our understanding of the archetype of the king-how it lives within us and how we can honor it in others, especially the men and boys in our lives. This activity will take place between 9am-2pm PDT via live broadcast. If you want to participate, have a surface to paint on, a few acrylic paints in the palette of your choice, a spray water bottle and either a piece of white chalk or a white pencil (Stabilo works well). Can’t wait to pain with you!
Here I am doing some homework for Raising Kings: chatting up the amazing relationship coach, Jayson Gaddis about rites of passage, what men and boys are up against today, how the culture can better adjust for men to grow into healthy men, and what women can do to support healthier relationships. Enjoy!
