It's how we handle
Helping boys and men navigate life's transitions so that they may lead lives of meaning and purpose.
HONOR INTEGRITY RESPECT VULNERABILITY COURAGE
"True masculine power is rooted in this dynamic blend of "soft" and "hard" attributes--showing up as a potent alignment of head, heart, and guts. When head (thinking, rationality, analysis), heart (caring, compassion, love), and guts (resolve, resiliency, bravery) all inform each other and work together, a truly healthy manhood cannot help but arise."
--from To Be a Man

Crux Moments Offers
Through an individual discovery session and weekly coaching meet-ups, clients are encouraged to explore their current paradigm and begin to wrestle with what possibilities might exist for personal and/or professional evolution. A personalized strategic plan will be collaboratively developed between coach and client with clearly-defined benchmarks along the way. Goals may include entry into college, landing a job, confronting an addiction, improving executive functioning skills, managing a personal relationship or grappling with some form of loss.
Mentorship is all but non-existent in today's culture, yet is needed more than ever. Mentorship comes in many forms, but our version of mentorship includes heart-centered connection, dialogue, fun and challenge. Mentor is defined as a "trusted counselor or guide," and many men benefit greatly from such a relationship. The fundamental difference between a coach and a mentor, in our context, is that the coach takes a more active role in strategy whereas the mentor simply provides guidance through experience and accumulated wisdom.
RETREATS AND RITUALS
There are very few authentic coming-of-age "rituals" for young people in America today. Coming-of-age experiences often happen by default and have a component of initiation that involves alcohol or drug use, sexual promiscuity, sexual dominance or dangerous, reckless behavior.s These unsophisticated attempts at initiation toward manhood are constructed by the participants themselves in an attempt to create a shared bonding experience. Healthy rituals for boys and young men, on the other hand, consist of carefully-considered thresholds that participants pass through on their way to the next stage in their lives. Often based in nature's solitude, each participant can be free of the distractions of a busy life to consider who he is, what his place in the world is and how he can consciously choose his life path. Through these healthy shared experiences we form important bonds with initiates as well as their guides.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
-- Theodore Roosevelt
