Suck it up. Stuff it down. Pour a bottle of whiskey over the top. Rinse and repeat until sufficiently numbed. This is the step-by-step doctrine men are taught. Men have traded in their internal leadership, sovereignty, and even masculinity for comfort, validation, and an escape from the mundane boardroom of their existence. Where is the modern-day strength training for the hearts and minds of men?
In Men’s Work, ManTalks founder Connor Beaton offers the tactical, self-led guide men have been looking for. Here, he destigmatizes inner work by reframing it as a kind of psychological warrior training that many men can relate to and have been craving. Beaton walks you through a framework for facing the hidden and rejected aspects of yourself―factors that lead to self-sabotage, anxiety, and depression. Through real-life stories from men he’s worked with and guidance in practical, accessible exercises, he takes you on a three-part journey to uncover and free yourself from the thoughts, emotions, and patterns that hold you back.
When you face off with those pieces in place, that’s when you’ll:
• Live with clear purpose and direction
• Build your skills to win at relationships
• Gain better control of your anger
• Learn how to regulate your mind, body, and emotions, even under stress and conflict
• Become fearless and at peace with your journey
Men’s Work focuses on the unique challenges that men with psychological and emotional wounds so often grapple with―while giving you the tools to heal and return to society in a way that is both empowering personally and beneficial for all. “The goal of this work is not only to become a better man,” says Beaton, “but a better participant in the collective enterprise of living. True freedom awaits.”
