FATHERS

RISING

A community of fathers, to support each other to heal, grow, and live towards our individual purpose as well as our collective responsibility for the future of our children and their planet.

A community of fathers, fathers-to-be, and men who feel a father-like responsibility or calling in life.

“Masses of men have not even begun to look at the ways that patriarchy keeps them from knowing themselves, from being in touch with their feelings, from loving.”

—Bell Hooks, The Will to Change.

Many fathers these days feel overwhelmed by all the pulls in life.

Love, intimacy, work, our mental- and physical health, kids, but also the larger issues that threaten the quality of life for our future generations. Ecological destruction, the separation we feel from nature, and the alarming increase in mental health issues in our youth and in ourselves, with symptoms such as burnout, anxiety, and depression emerging all around us.

We're living in confusing times and it's difficult for us fathers to see how we can live into our own truth, while feeling fully connected to our family and friends, feeling a sense of meaning in our work, and also having some form of clarity of purpose in life.

Now more than ever, it's important for us fathers, to become an inspiration to our children, to confront our shadows, reconnect with nature, reconnect with ourselves, and connect with other fathers to learn to embody the qualities our world so urgently needs for healing. 

So here is an invitation, to gather, into a place of deeper connection, and truthful dialogue, and embrace what it means to live into the responsibility we fathers have for our children, our planet, and also ourselves.
