The Dichotomy of Traditional Masculinity with Galen Erickson


Traditional Masculinity

Galen Erickson is a men's relationship coach and facilitates workshops and men's circles in Seattle, WA. 

We discuss what it means to be a man in today's world, how traditional toxic masculinity and a more sensitive, heart-centric version of masculinity are at odds with each other, and what men can do to learn how to connect to their emotions more fully. 

What you'll learn (or why you should care):

• How men can learn to take more risks

• The differing views on consent between men and women

• The importance of male vulnerability in forming healthy relationships

• Alternatives to traditional male sexuality
