Wake Up Call! – Vulnerable & Intimate



Intimacy reflects your willingness to be vulnerable.

We were two men talking about men needing to stop gender based violence. We’d only ever spoken on the phone but there we were sharing very personal stories. Those in the audience said, “You two were so emotionally intimate and your body language reflected it.”

We could have chosen to be two talking heads but instead chose to be vulnerable.

As we spoke about re-imagining the toolbox of manhood we illustrated our discussion with stories about our surprising, transformative moments of love and tenderness being part of what it means to be a man. Quite naturally we touched one another in the ways that longstanding friends trust one another to do.

The result was that our words and body language were in a state of harmony that unwittingly became part of the teaching and learning of the evening. Who will you trust to be vulnerable and emotionally intimate with?


  • Be willing to trust being vulnerable

  • Be aware of a shared vulnerability creates emotional and spiritual intimacy

Notice how a richly textured tapestry of life reveals itself to you.
