Unmasked: Paths to Authentic Masculinity

3-day Live intensive for Men

“What gets in the way of healing is being able to truly be seen by others. So we’re going to be talking a lot about authenticity. In the very beginning of the journey, a lot of people say the reason why I want to figure my stuff out is because I don’t want to lose connection to people that I love. But they start realizing that that work goes deeper than just getting honest. It goes to being authentic.”

About the Intensive

For any man struggling with sexual behaviors that conflict with his values, the journey to healing can feel overwhelming and isolating. That’s why “Unmasked: The Path to Authentic Masculinity” offers a beacon of hope and transformation. At the intensive you’ll get:

Explore Root Causes: “Unmasked” provides a supportive environment for men to explore the underlying factors contributing to their sexual behaviors. Through introspective exercises and facilitated discussions, participants can gain insight into the emotional, psychological, and relational triggers driving their actions.

Embrace Vulnerability: Healing begins with vulnerability. By shedding the mask of shame and secrecy, men can courageously confront their struggles in a safe and non-judgmental space. “Unmasked” encourages participants to embrace vulnerability as a catalyst for healing and authentic connection with others.

Realign with Values: Problematic sexual behaviors often lead individuals to engage in behaviors that betray their core values and beliefs. This intensive empowers men to realign their actions with their authentic selves, rediscovering a sense of integrity and purpose. Through reflection and introspection, participants can identify and reaffirm their values, paving the way for lasting change.

Learn Coping Strategies: “Unmasked” equips men with practical coping strategies and tools to manage triggers, cravings, and urges. From mindfulness techniques to boundary-setting skills, participants gain the resources necessary to navigate the challenges of recovery with resilience and determination.

Forge Authentic Connections: Recovery from problematic sexual behaviors can feel like a lonely journey, but “Unmasked” fosters a sense of camaraderie and brotherhood among participants. Sharing experiences, challenges, and triumphs with like-minded individuals creates a supportive community where men can find understanding, encouragement, and accountability.

Cultivate Self-Compassion: “Unmasked” guides participants towards embracing their humanity, acknowledging past mistakes, and cultivating a sense of self-worth independent of their behaviors which helps move men through their shame. 

Attending “Unmasked: The Path to Authentic Masculinity” isn’t just about addressing the symptoms of problematic sexual behaviors; it’s about reclaiming your authentic self, living with congruency, and embodying integrity in every aspect of your life.
