A new YouTube channel has been birthed: Awakening the Masculine. The channel is an unfolding exploration of creating and cultivating the divine masculine. A channel that welcomes all genders, no matter how you identify or the genitalia you happen to have, to begin to unlock what it really means to be “manly” and how we all can learn to increase our connection with masculinity.
For too long men, manhood, and masculinity have been underdeveloped, pushed aside, and shamed. Too many of us have not had the opportunity to be exposed to well-rounded, emotionally available, highly compassionate models of masculinity. Many of us have not learned how to open our hearts, how to access our emotional worlds and share them with others. Many of us fear touch, in any form but aggressive, from others that identify as men. Many of us do not know how to make love. Many of us do not know how to be vulnerable.
The flip-side to this, are those of us who may feel we have developed skills in emotional connection, empathy and compassion but feel awkward when attempting to show up in a more culturally-assumptive expression of masculinity like using hand tools, taking charge or being a commanding presence, being strong both emotionally and physically, or simply knowing how to change our oil.
This channel is seeking to address both sides of the paradigm in order to bring harmony, alignment and balance to our systems. Here, we are not attempting to denote what makes a man a man, or what makes a woman a woman, but rather to celebrate a full spectrum of what it is to be human with an emphasis on masculinity.
A cornerstone of this channel is; a real man is anyone who says they are. We are not here to tell someone else who they are or how to be. We are here to support one another and know that there is no ultimate expression of manhood or masculinity. A man can be anything he wants to be and anyone who wants to be can be a man. We also recognize masculinity and manhood are not intrinsically linked. Thus, all are welcome and all are encouraged to offer support and reflections on the divine within us all.
