Men Need Rites of Passage Now

We are awash in information, yet information is not enough...

We are awash in information, yet information is not enough. 

Men need *visceral experiences* to truly ‘grok’ and embody wisdom.

Rites of passage.

Initiations.

Rituals.

Embodiment practices.

Experiences of sitting in circle and baring their hearts to other brothers.

This is why I’m creating The Sovereign Man.

To give men a visceral experience of sacred brotherhood…

Of facing fear…

Of meeting their edge…

Of direct connection to Spirit…

Of releasing burdens and traumas…

It is my deep conviction that this work is urgently needed on Earth at this time.

There is a yearning in the heart of humanity… a yearning for healing, remembrance, transformation.

A yearning to liberate ourselves individually and collectively… To remember unconditional love and true wisdom, so as to navigate the choppy waters ahead with grace and precision…

I cry as I write these words, thinking of my infant daughter…

Thinking of doing it all for her…

Knowing that it is my calling to create high-quality initiations, ceremonies, rituals, retreats, and rites of passage…

Knowing that I am meant to create digital & physical spaces and sanctuaries where soul family can do this work…

Knowing that my truest mission is to BE my truth, BE my joy, BE my love, in this lifetime…

To come from and radiate the truth, love, and freedom that I am, on a daily basis…

Knowing that I will not compromise this mission.

Knowing that The Sovereign Man is absolutely an initiation and rite of passage for me as well. 

It’s a point of no return.

A commitment to a new level of dedication.

A new level of grounded service.

A new level of showing up on Earth as a sovereign, fiercely loving, un-fuck-with-able Man… a True Man.

The sort of man rare to find these days…

The sort of man Mother Earth is begging for.

Are you with me, brother?

Do you feel this energy, too?

Because it’s fucking coursing through me right now, animating my fingers to type this, causing tears to pour down my face…

Shall we fucking do this, brothers?

Shall we be the True Men this planet needs, for the fucking honor and beauty and truth and fun of it?

I’m ready.

I’ve resisted it and resisted it over the years, in many subtle and less-subtle ways…

Hidden from it, run away, avoided my beautiful destiny…

No more.

I feel a new level dropping in.

A new level of focus, dedication, readiness.

To be what I truly am.

What about you, brother?

Is it time for you to join us?

Love,
JB
