Episode 3 - David Deida and The Gift of The Masculine

What gifts do we bring to each other as men and women? As embodiments of masculine impulses and forces and of feminine impulses and forces? How are they different and how are they the same? There's been a whole lot of confusion over what it means to be a man or a woman and all combinations thereof, during the past 40 years. We have outgrown the latest phase of history, where the masculine dominated, with production and violent change shaping social relations. Feminism succeeded in equalizing the right of both genders to be masculine -- and now with a sense of equality, women are re-discovering that feminine power is unique. And men are being forced to realize that it is no less powerful. As men struggle to find a way of being in relationship with the feminine that is both powerfully masculine and self-aware, they are discovering the gifts of the masculine to be liberating -- both from the brute stereotypes that preceded the modern age, and from the wishy-washy "soft" man that women find so emasculated -- though wonderful feng-shui partners. This week, we begin our 3-Part exploration of the great gifts of the masculine, as we drill into the first two of the The Three Pillars of the Masculine -- Purpose, Presence and Freedom -- as I have culled them from the work of David Deida . Fully embodied, they are a gift -- to everybody. Enjoy -- and let me know what you think...
