The primary source of male conditioning is the father figure in our lives. This often creates wounding that manifests as difficulty feeling connected to our whole selves and to others.
In this workshop we will explore the wounds arising from our relationships with our fathers using embodied action methods including drama therapy, psychodrama and improvisation to heal our personal and collective father wounds.
“The first act of violence that patriarchy demands of males is not violence toward women. Instead patriarchy demands of all males that they engage in acts of psychic self-mutilation, that they kill off the emotional parts of themselves.”

Open to male-identified participants
