Lately I’ve been increasingly asked if I coach men. I like to pay attention to things that repeat themselves in my business so it did get me asking the question. Do I coach men? Does Sacred Women’s Business make a stand for men as well as women? Am I exclusively a coach for women or is there availability for men? Do sacred feminine principles of business apply to men as well as women?

The answers to all of the above are yes, yes, yes and yes.

It’s true that women have specific needs that require a certain shared understanding. One of the main reasons I started Sacred Women’s Business was to empower women as a result of my own direct experience of gender and economic inequality that I’ve faced as a sole provider for my children.

However, for a more equitable world, men need healing and elevation also. Feminine principles apply to all businesses. All businesses benefit from the feminine characteristics of receiving, creativity, intuition and spontaneity and playfulness. The Masculine paradigm is getting a hiding right now – patriarchal structures are crumbling all around us. Many men are confused – are they meant to be SNAGS (sensitive new age guys) or are they meant to be strong and steely to cope with the crisis we’re facing? Are they meant to change nappies and stay at home looking after the kids or are they meant to be providers – or are they meant to play Superman to our Wonder-Woman and do both?

So I’ve taken on a few well-qualified male clients who are doing amazing work in the world which is aligned with the Sacred Women’s Business ethos – that their work will leave a legacy that leaves the world a better place for all beings. They need all the support my women clients need to do their sacred work – encouragement, acknowledgement, challenging and accountability. I’m enjoying it, because the ripple effects their efforts have spreads to their well-deserving wives, children and communities.

With the pendulum swinging towards the new feminine leader in order to restore the balance that has been subverted for eons, men need support more than ever to be the healthy masculine that equates and is able to hold court in positive ways with the healthy feminine. A more harmonious world will be one where we channel our inner feminine and masculine resources in healthy balanced ways – for emotional and mental sustainability. Stay tuned for more on this topic in my upcoming book Healing the Heart of Your Business due for release 6th December, 2014. Perhaps the Dalai Lama was right in saying that the world will be saved by the western woman. However, we will be committing a grave injustice if this comes at the expense of men and there is no room for disrespect or demasculinization for this to happen in all its gloriousness.

Take a measure of your own internal sense of the masculine by asking the question: do I trust that the masculine impulse within me will provide for me in my business? Or do I secretly believe that it will let me down? What needs to change in order for me to start trusting myself again?

Essentially, your trust in the world and in yourself is related to your direct experience of the masculine energetic in your life. Perhaps your business has been yearning to take care of you, to nourish you and to protect you and you are not allowing it or giving it permission to? You think you need to do it all, yet the support is there.

I’d love to know what you think. Please make a comment in the comments section below.

    Dear Lisa,

    What a thoughtful and heartfelt article. Yes, I thoroughly enjoy the experience of cultivating and applying both my masculine and feminine energies. To sublimate one promotes disharmony. The blend and the balance feels right. It is true, patriarchal dominance is devolving all around the world which is long overdue. It is failing as a business model and as a religious model too. Deconstructing what is not working to replace it with an integrated and healthier awareness is ideal and timely. Destroying and dehumanising masculinity is not. I look forward to reading your book. xo

      hi Penny, thanks so much for your insightful and intelligent comments. I love your awareness about this important balance that we’re all striving for. I wish you many blessings in your business. Namaste, Lisa

    Lisa, what a great article and so time-appropriate. I love your words of wisdom about your target audience and the new paradigm for men. For years I was confused about my target market as an editor. When you need work and money it’s easy to think that your market is everyone. But then one man took a look at my business card and said “Words of Passion, oh, so you do romance?” and I knew that women were my market. That was several years ago and the world is shifting. Now I’m gathering authors for the second volume of F.A.I.T.H. – Finding Answers in the Heart, and I’m coming across men with an enlightened view of the world, their spirituality, and their place in community, and I’m opening my heart and my business to make room for them. Understanding and allowing the new masculine in my life has been life-changing and I love it! Thanks!

      hi Nanette, your project sounds really extraordinary and I love hearing about how you are opening your heart and your business to the new masculine. I am excited for you and the magnificent changes your inspiring work will bring to the world, namaste Lisa

    Hey Lisa
    This was a really great post. I loved the point you made about certain ‘feminine’ qualities being very beneficial for business, and that men could benefit greatly from cultivating them. I agree with you that recent changes in society may be leaving men a bit confused about their ‘role’ and how they should be acting. While it is not the same type of issues that women face, I think this is the first time men are experiencing that similar confusion and uncertainty regarding what constitutes a ‘real’ man.

    Thank you for this article. It is pleasant to hear kind words towards men when a lot of men have abdicated their responsibilities as husbands and fathers. Lately, I am reminded of my own brother who left his three kids and cheated on his wife. I can’t even begin to understand his behavior. I agree with your sentiments though, men and women cannot deal vindictively and hope to achieve meaningful success in the way of forming relationships. As a society we need authentic change and sincerity coming from a pure heart, if such a thing is possible.

      Thanks Brandon, it’s wonderful to hear that you are committed to living an authentic life true to your values. Namaste, Lisa
