What Is "Journey Beyond?"
It's Advanced Work In Understanding the Masculine Self
ey Beyond is
- an advanced-level, 4-day, 4-night, experiential program of self-discovery and healing
for men who have
Unlike Journey Into Manhood, Journey Beyond is
NOT filled on a first-come, first-served basis
. Instead, potential participants
need to apply and be approved
by leaders of Brothers Road.
This is to ensure that Journey Beyond participants are well prepared for such an intense self-discovery experience, and t
hat they have significant follow-up support resources in place to help them continue their work after their JB experience.
It's Exploring the Masculine Archetypes Within You
y Beyond builds on principles taught in Journey Into Manhood (M.A.N.S.) and Journey
Continues (living for a higher purpose, living in your Gold).
Then it takes men deeper into the masculine archetypes of King, Warrior, Magician, and Lover -- in both their Golden states and Shadow poles.
It's a Return to Boyhood ... and Your Growth Into Manhood
Journey Beyond takes men back to the innocence of their newborn selves, onto the adventures of boyhood, the yearnings and wounds of youth, and then to emerging manhood -- in all its Shadow and Gold.
It's a chance to reframe the entire narrative of your life, from a story of brokenness to a true hero's journey.
It's Accepting Your Male Body, Just As It Is
Journey Beyond gives you opportunities to explore internal conflicts you may have over your (imperfect) male body.
You'll be invited to release any body shame you may experience, or to challenge any obsessions you might have over what the ideal male body is supposed to look like.
Experiential processes are designed to help you lessen your sexual responses (if any) to other men by embracing your similarities and owning your natural inclusion in the world of men, rather than emphasizing your perceived differences or claiming an "outsider" status.
It's Facing Your Shadows Around the Feminine
Journey Beyond challenges your stories about women and the feminine.
It gives you opportunities to heal old wounds. To grieve old hurts. To release unfinished anger. And perhaps to start anew.
Who do you become in the presence of the feminine? Are you the grounded, complete man you want to be in relationship to women -- or do you become something less?
You'll explore these questions and more at Journey Beyond.
It's a Quest for Greater Purpose, and Service to a Higher Cause
The Journey Beyond legend is the medieval story of Parsifal the Fool, in his naive pursuit of knighthood in King Arthur's court and his search for the Grail Castle. It is about bringing healing to the Wounded Fisher King, and thus the entire kingdom, by asking a specific question at a specific moment.
It is about finding ultimate fulfillment by serving a cause far greater than self.
Are you ready for the Journey?
