Gay Men of Wisdom presents a program that will help you to unlock your gay gifts and become leader in the world! Facilitated by Ray Rigoglioso, author of Gay Men and the New Way Forward Gay men embody Sustainable Manhood, a form of manhood that all men will need to adopt if human beings are to survive on the planet. Yet as gay men, we often feel disconnected from our sense of being men. We can change that. Indeed, the times we are living in make it imperative that we do so. This weekend program will invite you to discover, embrace, and celebrate how you are a man--on your terms, as you embody it--not as dictated by the dominant culture. Using the Distinct Gay Male Gifts as a guide, you will explore your Masculine-Feminine Intelligence and Social Orientation. You will see how these gifts give you the power to lead and be of service. You will make the connection between your sexual expression and your social contributions. The program will include a powerful ritual that will help you release the messages, fears, and threats you have taken on from men. We'll journey into our individual and collective shadow side, and we'll conclude with a guided visualization through all 14 Distinct Gay Male Gifts. Celebrating Gay Manhood will help you stand tall in how you embody manhood. In doing so, you will discover how you are a leader for all men.
