What is a circle?
A circle is a gathering which invites the connection, care, and empowerment of men. An intentional collaboration to transform the masculine culture in our society. Welcoming the dissolving of taboos around male vulnerability and allowing a more heart-opening approach for the mind, body, and soul.
What to expect?
The Brothers' Circle begins with a meditation session, offering participants a sacred space to center themselves and set intentions for the gathering. This allows individuals to quiet their minds, connect with their inner selves, and create a focused and receptive state of being.
Following the meditation, the workshop opens the door to soul gazing, a profound experience where men connect on a deeper level by looking into each other's eyes, fostering genuine connections and empathy.
Somatic movements are then introduced, inviting men to explore and express their emotions and physical sensations through movement. The body opening and movement allows to fell strong in ones own physical body and empowers the entire practice.
The workshop continues with a talking circle, where participants have the opportunity to share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, creating a safe and non-judgmental environment for self- expression and active listening.
The pinnacle of The Brothers Circle is contact improvisation, known as 'Pulut.' This dynamic and interactive practice encourages men to engage in spontaneous, non-verbal communication through physical contact. It's a powerful way to build trust, forge connections, and tap into the transformative potential of human connection.
Eventually a breath work and meditation allows the intention to be set and embodied.
The meeting concludes with some reflections followed by checking out process, followed by a final meditation. This allows to share experiences providing closure and a sense of completion.
The circle is facilitated by our Brother guest Hafeez in collaboration with Nilayam co-founder Tattva John
