Nick is the son of a father, a man, a devoted father, and a seeker of role models.
He has worked with boys and men since 1975, and has specialised in developing relationships with troubled individuals. Concurrently, he has also lived with and been trained by indigenous people all over the world.
The combination of these two diverse experiences enables him to make a unique contribution to the present masculinity debate. Particularly with regard to rites of passage.
Nick has recently completed a trilogy of books on male spirituality and rites of passage, details of which can be found HERE
THE MASCULINITY GUIDE Nick works with a wide range of men and boys, providing: 1-2-1 guidance for men, eldership training and bespoke rites of passage for teenagers and men of all ages. He says: * I can help you connect to your authentic self who is wise, full of fun, and enthusiastic for life. * I listen to and honour the barriers and fears, and seek to move towards fulfilment and joy. * I facilitate the creation of emotional links to family and friends, particularly positive and supportive relationships with women and children. * I co-facilitate in the design and delivery of modern day rites of passage, which are relevant, risk-taking and life transforming.
HEART TO HEART Together with Jay Ramsay he facilitates the once monthly mens group which is a deep space into which men can safely step. The group is a safe and risk taking environment at which issues can be discussed. Meditations and taking time are essential, as well bringing creativity, fun and humour, as well as grief and distress.
UNDERSTANDING MEN: He has recently developed a new talk about male spirituality for men and women, which he has delivered for Positive Living and Truthjuice groups. In it, he examine the roots of present day masculinity. He charts the urgent need to change masculinity and how this can affect our own personal development as women and men, as well as the wider culture and community.
VISION QUESTS AND SWEAT LODGES Nick can create and hold ceremonies and events to celebrate maleness and masculinity. He has recently been involved in a vision quest for an 18 year old, and a sweat lodge for a group of men.
Nick is available to run bespoke workshops for all sorts of audiences. If you are interested in booking him, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone on: 07814 986672
