General Description

Barefoot brothers is a closed group for men where we will use the group support to uncover and heal re-emerging dysfunctional emotional and thought patterns which drain our time and energy. Through a process of understanding ourselves better and raising our awareness of our personal triggers and patterns, we can learn to recalibrate ourselves and use our bodies and minds in a more functional and optimised way.  Through healing and reconciling our weaknesses we can become more sophisticated in how we manage our emotions and thoughts, enabling better decision making and communication which allows us to get the most out of our careers and relationships.  Having a closed group of men allows us to fully let our guard down so that we can work on the real stuff. Drop the masks. Be ourselves. Have fun, and get shit done!  Over the 6 weeks we will be using a range of techniques and exercises not limited to bioenergetic movement, writing tasks, emotional and energetic exercises, meditations, breathing practices etc. to dig into negative and stuck holding patterns of thinking and emotion which keep us locked in the same negative actions and life experiences.
This is not for the faint hearted.  We are only interested in men who are committed to making real positive shifts in their lives. No different to training in the gym – improving our mental and emotional health requires consistent revisiting to the area of challenge. On the surface this may look different to doing some good reps under the squat rack, but the principle is the same. Sometimes we need to ‘shut up and squat’. This course is the ‘work’ on the emotions and mind, that the ‘squat’ is in the gym.  It’s not about pretending to be something you’re not, or being stifled by the things and people around you. It’s about accepting who you are, and living unapologetically as your best authentic self.

Course Content

The intention for this course is for each participant to work through and heal the major mental/emotional issue in their lives at the current moment.  In this culture, it is not well understood how to manage and reconcile negative thought and emotional patterns. We all use coping strategies such as avoidances or distractions to never honestly look at the things we need to in order to heal and move forward in our relationships, business, and health.  As such, these patterns continue to re-emerge and create pain in our lives which drain our energy, time and money, and prevent us from living the most enriched lives, and being our best selves. Topics such as

This course is designed to do the following:

– Identify the major issue in our lives. Understanding the story we are telling ourselves sub-consciously which is causing us discomfort.
– Understand the cause of the major issue/pattern – understanding the origins of these patterns and how they operate in us.
– Learning to process the negative thoughts and emotions in a practical way. – embodiment practices
– Learning to change the mental patterns – make the appropriate adjustments so that they don’t have as much power over us.
– Understanding how our patterns feed into and affect our relationships – conscious communication, triggers, intrinsic values, ego Vs authenticity, lies, etc.
– Understanding ourselves and masculinity from a cultural perspective – seeing how the outside world can affect us and learning how to engage with it more effectively – Masculinity, sex, etc.

Weekly Structure

Each week there will be video content with relevant theory. The weekly group sessions will include open sharing, and discussion of relevant theory, but mostly of the time in the sessions will be spent on real-time demonstrations of exercises which dig as deep as possible into whatever part of the healing process is necessary. Through this process the participants will be able to witness the healing process in real time and experience it for themselves. We learn by doing, so it is my intention to dive as deep as possible so that the participants can continue to deepen the process during the week in between sessions.   Exercises will be mental, emotional and physiological in order to shake up theses patterns from multiple vantage points.
The course content includes, but is not limited to the following topics – understanding therapy, healing, trauma, boundaries, embodiment, coping strategies, patterns, development principles, conscious communication, awareness, responsibility, attachment to beliefs, the growth journey, nervous system regulation, meditation, growth mindests, authenticity, free-will, needyness, sex, dating, shame, and much much more!
  • By appointment only – put your email address in the space provided below to apply – we will respond to applicants via email to arrange a free 30 minute zoom call to see if you are a good fit.

About Your Coach, Dorf.

In my time working at Melbourne muscular therapies, I have worked with thousands of clients with the aim of improving their physical health. The common starting point for this recovery, is a pain point or physical dysfunction. Yet, by only focusing on the physical repair on the body without changing any lifestyle or physical patterns, these issues would eventually re-emerge.  Addressing the direct physical issue is important for short term coping, but for long term health and prosperity, we need to be identifying and going to work on the causes of the issue.  This lead me to the realisation that the most important work I was doing was educating clients about pathways to physical recovery, but more importantly helping people to raise their self awareness about the habits and patterns giving rise to their issues, and to take full-responsibility for them.

Through digging deeper with clients into the real causes of the issues, I began to realise that often the core issues could be related to physical habits, mental stress, relationship dynamics, and literally any aspect peoples lives.  The holistic nature of the origins of peoples issues became clearer and clearer.  For example, jaw grinding, neck pain, headaches, and migraines, are often present with negative mental patterns or stressors which could usually be identified very quickly, but may never have occurred to the client.  Witnessing many recovery journey lead to my understanding of how all parts of the human life are inextricably related. So to neglect one aspect of healing, is to neglect the whole body. 

The healing process of the physical body serves as a great analogy for other types of therapy.  Identifying the pain point or dysfunctional points, working to unpack and heal the area through the appropriate attention, and then making adjustments to the physical patterns causing the issue, is true for mental and emotional therapy just as much as it is true for physical therapy.  We can unpack trauma, and create new patterns and habits, in order to optimise a persons function based on their unique body and desired lifestyle.  Whether we are operating from coping strategies we used to win love from our parents during childhood, ignoring or rationalising the dysfunctional patterns and blaming the outside world for the state of our lives, or whatever else, we are all capable of raising our awareness of ourselves and changing our lives for the better.

Again using the principles of training and developing the physical body as an analogy for the development of other areas – building up incrementally and revisiting our challenge points over time, our weak points become stronger, and we become more robust and functional humans.  This analogy can be used for mental and emotional development as well as physical.  Given the amount of energy and thought we spend on physical health and healing in this culture, I would estimate that the psychological and emotional aspects of our health are being neglected. Thats’ were this course comes in.

To this point, I have largely focused on the physical healing, but in this course we will be using the same principles and philosophies of physical healing, and be using them to heal mental and emotional trauma.  Attending to the emotional or psychological pain points where we have reoccurring negative patterns, unpacking them and creating new ways of managing ourselves, so that we are more optimised. This process takes radical honesty, so that we can identify all these points clearly, get better clarity about how we are handling ourselves and reacting to our environments, and then making the necessary adjustments to optimise our lives.  This process can be challenging and painful, but in my experience, this is necessary on the road to changing ourselves and our lives.  Applicants to this course will be sincere in doing the work that is required to change.  If you have a negative emotional or thought pattern which is taking too much time or energy and getting in the way of the life you’d like to have. If  you are serious about making a change, dropping the bullshit,  Getting honest, and taking responsibility for your life, then this course is for you!
