The Numbing of the Male Heart - the Paradox of Masculinity
About The Session

A conversation exploring the fragility of the masculine identity. What does it mean to “be a man” in today’s world? We will talk about the pressures that so many men experience to continuously re-prove their masculine identity- not by choice, but by culture. This in turn leaves no room for vulnerability and the repression of the feelings numbs the male heart. We will dive deep into the perils of this numbing and navigating our way out of it.
