Last year, I spent 3 months at the Hridaya Yoga Community in Mazunte, Mexico, where I was teaching on the Annual Teacher’s Training Course. I also gave a Men’s Retreat and helped to facilitate some Men’s Work throughout the school.
The Men’s Work consisted of weekly Men’s Circles and regular one-on-one meetings between men in an attempt to raise awareness around the importance of brotherhood and increase compassion between men.
It was a beautiful time for me, and I learnt a lot about myself from the amazing Men in the School. Every man showed his vulnerable side, stepped through fears, shared and listened with deep compassion. Since I left Mazunte, the Men’s Work is continuing strongly and now this work has become an integral part of the school’s activities. I hope you enjoy the photos :)
