Hosts Frank Dunn and Michael Kerosky hold a conversation this month centering on the single biggest kill-joy in the lives of men:  work.  Of course, work is also the place where huge numbers of men turn to find meaning and purpose.  And now, given a worldwide pandemic and a radically changed economic environment, the world of work is standing on its head for many of us.

Boys, as all children, only know about play. Then the day of “homework” dawns and things begin to shift. Organized sports frequently are far more about work, discipline, scoring, and winning than they are about free play and fun. Not that that is all bad. But when men’s lives gradually fill with goals, striving, competing, achieving, winning, and losing, is it any wonder that we frequently measure our erotic lives in the same terms? If we experience sexual issues or relationship challenges, we often feel alone, undervalued—in short, like losers. Along comes aging in a society where the elderly are warehoused, and it takes great effort to live any way other than the win-lose way we’ve lived since elementary school.  

OK, all that may be something of an overstatement.  But maybe you see that there’s enough truth there to encourage you to spend an hour or so considering how we might intentionally reframe our lives so that we aren’t enslaved to a god that behaves as a demon, driving us, sucking energy out of us, eating up time that we could be spending on life-giving pursuits. 

• If you’re young and finding your way in the world of work, this won’t be a downer, but we hope a chance to see some ways you can keep your life balanced as you move forward into career.

• If you’re retired, we need to hear what you’ve learned and what you’re experiencing now that work is less a factor in your life.

• If you are in mid or late career,  you have a place to name the challenges and opportunities that you’re finding as you negotiate your way through the second half of life.  

And all of us can explore the delicate balance between work and sex, whatever forms they take in individual lives.  

We hope you’ll join us.

Brotherhood Circles 

Our first online brotherhood circle begins in January 2021. Meeting on Tuesdays At 7:00-9:30 PM Eastern US Time (here is a link that will convert that to your time zone), the circle will convene bi-weekly beginning on January 2 and ending on April 6.  The cost for the 8 sessions is $160.  As always, our policy is to make our offerings available to any so that none is kept from attending by fees.  Registration will be open  by October 1 (see below).  Meanwhile, if you want to claim one of the spaces (eight men plus two co-conveners is the maximum number), contact frank@jonathanscircle without delay.  

Topics for the eight sessions

   • Who am I?

   • My erotic life

   • My spiritual life

   • Secrets, shame, and privacy

   • Wounds, memories, and healing

   • Mentors, teachers, and models

   • My gifts to the world

   • My lessons and my wisdom

Register right here on or after Oetober 1, 2020.
