Podcast: Healing Men’s Souls - William Ayot interviewed by Andrew Marshall (60 mins)
Andrew speaks with William Ayot about the burdens men carry; the healing power of ritual; male loneliness and how men’s groups help; confronting shame and anger.
Today, the four pale horsemen of war, famine, pestilence and death, have broken into our comfortable lives once again.
As the climate emergency and shortage become normalised, how do we live through crisis after crisis without falling into fear and anxiety on the one hand, or agitated reaction and rage on the other?
Do we face the horsemen, go into denial or settle for the dull throb of numbness? And how do we maintain contact with the heart, with soul, with love and compassion?
For thousands of years, men’s lives were structured by rituals that helped them mark significant events, make sense of the world, and move from one phase of life to the next. William explores this, interviewed by Brett McKay in The Art of Manliness.
Join poet William Ayot and psychotherapist Simon Roe as they help us to air our grief, explore the possibilities, and remember those we have lost over these last troubled and troubling years.
