Hello Friends:

June is known for Father's Day, so I want to acknowledge all the men who have played important roles in all of our lives.  They may not all have been fathers in the traditional sense of the word, but they helped shape us and instilled qualities in us that have made us better persons today. 

So let's take a moment and honor all of these men with a prayer of thanks.

Beginning with the main article below, I'll be sharing my thoughts and observations on the Divine Masculine, Our Father.  And I'll be continuing the discussion throughout the month of June in the Ah-Man Blog.

I will talk about what the Divine Masculine looks like, how it feels, how one might use it to reach their goal of Transcendental Realization.


I invite you to join me by sharing your own personal reflections and comments on the Divine Masculine and Fathers.


Until next time.



What you are about to read is only a glimpse of the Divine Masculine.
Volumes have been written on both The Divine Feminine and The Divine Masculine.


The Divine Masculine can guide you to The Divine Feminine, just as The Divine Feminine can lead you to The Divine Masculine. They can work hand in hand or separately to achieve Self Realization.  But, in reality, they are never really separate, at least not in the transcendental sense.  In fact, they are One and the same.  They bring you back home, back to Self.


For thousands of years, both The Divine Masculine and The Divine Feminine have been uniting Jiva Atma with Param Atma...individual soul with Supersoul...Human and God.


Generally, if you come from a monotheistic background, i.e., Christianity, Islam or Judaism, you might picture an old man when someone mentions our Heavenly Father.  On the other hand, if you were raised in the polytheistic belief, e.g., Hinduism, Vishnu, Brahma, Shiva or Patanjali, etc., or raised a Buddhist, maybe you would think of Siddhartha Gautama/The Buddha (or for Zen Buddhism/Daruma). And if you were raised in a Pantheistic way, the Universe might come to mind when you think of The Father.


These are all common visual ways of identifying with the Masculine Energy of God.  I want to dive more into the Masculine Energy of The Divine.  What that looks like, how it feels, how one might practice it and where it can take you.


Each week in June, I will select a religion and help you understand it more, and explain how that religion helps one enter into the masculine energy of God.

Be sure to check out the Ah-Man Blog in June, for additional discussion of The Divine Masculine.

When it comes to learning how to cope and enrich your life, sharing the thoughts and experiences of others via blog can be effective, but nothing beats the healing impact of human interaction.  And that's what I provide at my retreats.  You will better understand your own life experiences and the resulting disconnection from your heart. 

My goal - and passion - is helping men and women free themselves from pain caused by different types of trauma, neglect and abuse and to begin using the foundational elements of Trust, Forgiveness, and Acceptance to live fuller and more peaceful lives on their journey to becoming WHOLE.

An updated event schedule will be published in the next edition of the Ah-Man Newsletter.

Finding Peace Through Forgiveness Half-Day Retreat

This retreat is designed for anyone who has experienced hurt in their life.  The pain we feel from being hurt continues to manifest itself in our lives.  Resentment and pain continue to affect our thoughts and the decisions we make, either knowingly or, in most cases, unknowingly.  During the retreat, I will share my own miraculous experiences with forgiveness and show how forgiveness cannot happen without healing on the Emotional, Spiritual and/or Mystical levels.  I will also expose some of the myths about forgiveness.  During the session, I will also guide attendees through meditations of forgiveness, and invite you to see opportunities to grow where there were none.  Join me to find out how to have more peace in your life about your past, and to learn the secret of being human.
