Bold Life Brotherhood - Intimacy 1

Tonight in our Bold Life Brotherhood meeting, we looked at ways to improve our connection with loved ones on one of many possible different ways of being intimate:

  • physically
  • sexually
  • emotionally
  • intellectually
  • spiritually
  • financially

Men in the circle chose bold actions to take in the next week, deepening at least one component of intimacy in one important relationship in their lives.

Maybe something like this meditation:

Bold Life Brotherhood - CONNECTION with People

In the third week on CONNECTION, we focused on our connections with other people. What do you think they SHOULD be doing? How might these ideas point to things that you can do instead of changing the other person?

Quite some great insights tonight. I discovered ways in which I am not taking care of myself, and some ways I can enjoy my work more.

  • What do you think your favorite person SHOULD do?

  • What does this “SHOULD” point to you doing (for) yourself?

Every month will focus on a different core virtue. (See Upcoming Schedule below)

The Jungian Archetypes

Bold Life Brotherhood draws on the energies found in the male Jungian archetypes. These are sensible and practical. They are universally shared ideas, symbols, and energies. When you make an important decision, you exercise careful thought and wisdom (King energy). When protecting your family from harm, your energy would be sharp, focused, and fierce (Warrior energy). It’s that simple. The key is knowing which kind of energy to bring to which situation.

Costs (for four meetings each month)

You are welcome to check out your first meeting free. Simply register to access the meeting.

bold life brotherhood connection 2 now

Four men attended last night, so we had balanced numbers for the breakout rooms. I was glad to hear the processes were new experiences for them to bring their awareness to the present moment.

The verbal version of automatic writing brought interesting insights; several of the men will take time to practice this again during the week. It reminds me of my days in RC (Reciprocal Counseling).

Thanks to my friend Will Ewing for his words about BLB:

For me the Bold Life Brotherhood has been a gentle journey into
self-awareness. It has helped me to resolve some of my
long-standing personal issues and has been a stepping stone for me
to communicate better with my family.  I'm very grateful to Rob
and his steadfast dedication to helping the world evolve in a
positive manner.

Bold Life Brotherhood - Connection 1 - Body

Tonight in Bold Life Brotherhood, we described our realtime felt experience in our bodies. e.g. “I feel the slight pressure in my fingertips as I push these plastic shapes on the keyboard. I feel the intake of air filling my lungs and stomach stretching as I breathe.”

Each man spoke for a minute, narrating his felt experience. Then we amped it up for each of two rounds:

  1. Close your eyes and do the same, share what is happening for you now..

  2. Feeling inside your body, inside your skin, narrate what are you experiencing in realtime (not what your skin feels, but what your internal parts feel)

Quite a cool experience!

super great Design Your Day meetings

I’m super pleased with how the beta versions of my Design Your Day workshops have been going.

I’m so happy to hear my friends moving forward on projects that they’ve been wanting to do for a while!

I plan to run a weekend training on Finding Your Life Purpose to more deeply connect to our Heart as the compass in our lives.

Each person has their own heart and their own life mission. Their own reason for being here on Earth. I teach ways to connect more deeply with purpose and to bring that into daily life.

Email me if you’d like to jump in on the daily Design Your Day circles, held at 7:30am JST each day.

Super great Your Art Matters event

Today Shu and Hiro joined Shinobu and I for our fifth(?) Your Art Matters event!

Hiro showed his HO gauge model train track he has been working on since 2001. Shu showed her drawings that she has been doing daily in the last month. Shinobu showed her interior landscape images. I showed my start at soldering stainless steel wire for a new marble track.

And someone didn’t take a single photo!

Here is my custom made soldering iron stand, made out of a single piece of wire.

Great meeting tonight with a new man in the circle. We rewrote some of the messages from our inner critics and even sent the inner critics packing! Great rewrites such as

“you can’t do it” —> “It’s already done!”

“you don’t know what to do” —> “I trust my creativity”

What are some ways you’d rewrite messages from your inner critic?

First draft walking route Kawasaki to Niigata

I have begun to walk again in the mornings. I have posted on FB my idea of walking to Niigata. I have begun to plot out some potential waypoints for the route.

So far, I have plotted waypoints for 5+ hours to walk to Seibuen Amusement Park


Seibuen Amusement Park to Tennenonsen Kachofugetsu Hot Spring via Miyamae Park, nico rico, and 5 other stops in Google Maps.


Tennenonsen Kachofugetsu Hot Spring to 鳩山町文化会舘 via Ikejiriike Park, Takakurakofuku Temple, and 6 other stops in Google Maps.


鳩山町文化会舘 to 薪石窯PIZZA たんぽぽ via Kamigarako, Kamigarako, and 3 other stops


薪石窯PIZZA たんぽぽ to Minaregawa Park


薪石窯PIZZA たんぽぽ to 結婚の森 via Gunma Prefectural Observatory tooo farrr


結婚の森 to ゆじゅく金田屋


ゆじゅく金田屋 to グンマーsaraアジト via Akayako Memorial Park, 源泉湯の宿 千の谷,


Minaregawa Park to 県立公園群馬の森 via Shitauike Water Park, Gusto


県立公園群馬の森 to 利根川総社緑地 via 群馬の森北入口, Fuji Shrine


利根川総社緑地 to Kanai via 株式会社コメックス 漆原センター, Ichitora Chinese Restaurant


Kanai to 結婚の森

Though I have decided to not stop at Lockheart Castle, I have not yet figured out a way to embed maps on my site. Working on that now. The Google maps API allows “only” 20 waypoints on a map.
