MEN's spirituality

image12

SPEAKER : STEPHEN ASHTON

Stephen Ashton undertook Richard Rohr’s Men’s Rites of Passage in 2004 and has been involved with men’s spirituality work ever since: in the men’s groups that meet at Llansôr Mill, in the local prison, and with Circles of Support and Accountability, an organisation that enables men who have committed sexually-based offences in the past to live safely in the community.

THEME OF THIS WORKSHOP

Those of you who’ve read ‘Why men don’t listen and women can’t read maps’ or similar – will be aware that men’s ‘brain wiring’ is significantly different to women’s. Can this reflect on the ‘spiritual journey’ [for want of a better phrase], for men and women too? Have you ever wondered, for example, why our churches are two-thirds filled by women, and our prisons, 98% by men?

In this session we’ll try to offer some experience of what ‘male spirituality’ is, and how it offers the possibility for roughly half the population to… well, stop being over-age teenagers…
