mask1There is a crisis among boys in America: research shows that boys are more likely to be diagnosed with a behavior  disorder, prescribed stimulant medications, fail out of school, binge drink, commit a violent crime, and/or take their own lives. A new film dives into how our narrow definition of masculinity is harming boys, men, and society at large.

Can you think of a time where you experienced or witnessed this teaching? How can we create a different narrative for boys today?

Being a real man means being tough, strong, and definitely not girly or sensitive. But imagine if we could change all that. Imagine if you weren’t considered any less of a man if you wanted to openly talk about your feelings or binge watch ‘Scandal’ or take a beginner ballet class.

How can we set new “rules” about what it means to be a successful man?

What qualities or practices come to mind when you think about expanding what it means to be a man in our culture?

Join us for a conversation around the need to change our definition of healthy masculinity and expand what it means to “Be a Man”:

  • model a healthier form of masculinity,
  • support boys in expressing their emotions,
  • staying true to their whole selves, and
  • keeping their heads and their hearts connected.

Saturday, July 23rd, at Granite Peak UU Congregation, 882 Sunset Ave., Prescott 86305. Doors open at 5:30pm. Discussion will follow the movie.  All adults and teens are invited.
