INITIATING MEN ONTO A NEW LIFE’S PATH

For generations, men in virtually every ancient culture – from the tough Spartans, to the wise Greeks and the African and indigenous tribes gathered to hunt together in groups and spend time in nature as men – talking, competing, dancing and bonding with each other.

Times have changed, and as men today, we are being challenged like never before to grow up and show up in the world. At the same time, we have lost many of our traditional methods of initiation into manhood, and spaces where we can develop ourselves as men.

In a time when masculinity itself is being questioned, we firmly believe that what’s needed is not less, but more mature masculine energy. For some men the idea of being around other men creates anxiety and feelings of discomfort, usually because that man is uncomfortable in his own sense of masculinity. It is precisely for that reason that he needs other men in his life. Coming together as men feels familiar because we’ve done it for thousands of years. There is something special when we enter into a bond with other men in order to challenge ourselves, that is difficult to describe with words.

In order for this work to happen, men have to set themselves apart and go into a ‘no man’s land’, often referred to as liminal space. One has to leave behind work, women and his cares for the world. It is during these times in a man’s life that he is leaving behind his old ways of being, and is initiated into a new version of himself.

This weekend is an invitation to do just that. The event has been carefully designed around a series of psychological and somatic practices, bringing the best of science and tradition, to take you on a process of self-exploration, brotherhood and healing. The aim of this work is to help normalize healthy masculinity. There won’t be any lectures, nor theoretical concepts to suggest what masculinity is or isn’t.


This will be a “multi body” experience that will challenge you physically, emotionally and spiritually.

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR

Pav Nikolov – young Bulgarian, traveled around the world to seek knowledge and his personal truth. Pav has spent the last 8 years gathering fuel for the fire of Man With Purpose’s men’s work weekends through men’s leadership, shadow work, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Bioenergetics, Coaching, Archetypal Psychology, plant medicine and active listening. 

Pav is actively participating in other men’s organizations – namely Mankind Project, Maniphesto and SacredSon, to bring this work to more people across the planet.

Despite all this work, he is still a “work in progress” and he takes his wounds as a platform to work with other people.

Pav is the host of Man With Purpose podcast where he is on a mission to have 100 impactful conversations with men’s work facilitators with the idea to write a book on how these men have started to express their authentic truth, reignite the healthy masculine archetype and in the process create healthy masculine role models for future generations.

He is walking his spiritual path with the power of self-love and the intention to raise the collective consciousness through this transformational work.
