21st Century Coaching for Renaissance Men - Spring/Summer 2017

  • Do you see a vision for the future that calls you to action?
  • Are you ready to take your business and your income to the next level?
  • Do you want to be surrounded by the energy of powerful male vision and leadership?

Renaissance Men, this is just for you! Join this unique group coaching opportunity for strong, sensitive, and expressive men with glorious missions who want to take their service and bank accounts to the next level.

This group was formed to support male artists, musicians, community organizers, spiritual guides, etc. in forging a pathway to prosperity. It is a widely held and inaccurate belief that these types of callings mean a life of perpetual poverty, necessitating unstimulating “day” jobs to support your true passion. This group will challenge then eradicate those beliefs to pave the way for financial and creative abundance. If you’re ready to step into being an entrepreneur, and want to learn how to achieve your greatest success, then this group was made for YOU. This is a community of like-minded men that will offer consistent reflection and companionship as you all embark on your unique journeys.

The six-month experience will consist of:

  • Group Coaching to bolster your business to be the success of your dreams
  • Training in pricing, sales and marketing to build your toolkit as an entrepreneur
  • A committed network of six to eight amazing and innovative Male leaders to go along with you on the journey
  • The clarity and encouragement to overcome obstacles that have slowed you down in your business
  • Three two-hour group calls per month on Google hangout
  • A private Facebook group and email

A bit about my inspiration for this group:

A little while ago, I had the desire to create a group coaching experience for entrepreneurs. As I met more and more teachers, artists, yoga instructors and activists, I encountered some amazing men who said, “I’m totally down...but I don’t want to be the only guy in the group.” As I heard this same sentiment repeated, I realized: “Ah ha! These men desire society with others like themselves!” I decided to provide it for them. I created a whole new group just for men who want to forge forth and create sustainable businesses in their unique chosen paths.

This will be my second time leading this group, and to say that I’ve found the work to be inspiring wouldn't even begin to describe the effect that these incredible, motivational, and powerful co-creators have had on me. The best service goes both ways - it benefits both the provider and the receiver.

What can we learn from each other? I can’t wait to find out.

Touch & Play Contact Improvisation Festival

I'm delighted to be teaching a session on Spirituality and Communication at the first ever Touch and Play Festival in North America. Touch & Play festivals explore the edges of Contact Improvisation and are known as events in which personal and communal celebration and growth reach new levels.

WEBSITE: http://2016.touchandplay.org/ (including the full list of teachers)
REGISTER HERE: http://2016.touchandplay.org/registration/
CONTACT: contact@touchandplay.org

The Touch & Play Project started in 2010 as a platform to challenge the practice of Contact Improvisation (CI). Touch & Play events have focused on the exploration of the ‘Edges of Contact’ and this year’s theme of Communication takes us into a deepening of the dance through verbal and nonverbal communication techniques, styles, skills and approaches. Come to explore and open all of yourself: the communicator, the sensual, the sexy, the playful, the curious, the powerful, the receptive.

Want some I'll be teaching and coaching Connection Camp - a summer camp-style experience for grown-ups, with a focus on fostering connection in all its forms – connection with self, connection with other, connection with nature, connection through play, connection through collaboration.

It’s a radical opportunity for participants to get curious, get playful, get real, and get plugged into a vibrant sense of community.

We lead an open kirtan practice (Music and Mantra Meditation/Celebration) every Sunday afternoon at our home in Brooklyn, where we sing sacred sounds and share stories and poems from the ancient mystics. "Bhakti" is the sanskrit word for devotion, surrender and divine love. "Dojo" is a place for practice and discipline. Bhakti Dojo's mission is to spread the joys and blessings of sacred sound vibration by cultivating a community that supports the transformation that accompanies regular practice. We are storytellers and musicians, dancers and poets, teachers and servants, and we offer all this service in love.

Every Sunday evening In Brooklyn or online, 5-7:30pm.

"Gonna go out on a strong limb and say that the Bhakti dojo composed of Jesse JohnsonSrikala Kerel Roach and anyone else present singing was the most moving experience of the weekend. These guys showed up in a really unique, hardworking way, and played kirtans that I happily stumbled upon each day. It was as if they were their very own transformational music festival within the whole. Wow, how healing. Please do your festival/event a favor and invite these guys out! Hari Bol!" - Paul Kellogg
