Personal Mission:

I co-create empowered wholeness by sharing love, strength and wisdom through leadership.

Action in the World:

Brian is a co-founder of the H.E.R. Weekend, an experiential training for women that is modeled on the NWTA and staffed by both men and women. He has staffed every H.E.R. training as a co-leader since its inception in 2001. In addition to the ongoing H.E.R. program, Brian supports Widesky men’s council meetings, and Sacred Path retreats for men. Brian dedicates his receipt the Ron Hering Mission of Service Award to the mother and father he never met, and to all the men and women who have supported him in his personal development.

    Brian – i’ve known you for many years, in fact, though we’ve not seen one another in far TOO long! You’re a good man, and i so appreciate reading and thinking about how you’re living your mission. I still recall our Climbing Day at the Widesky Men’s group. It was awesome, and helped move a lot of guys into believing more is possible, in their lives, and in their Vision.

    I know of several women who’d I’d specifically like to refer to the H.E.R. Weekend. Logistical challenges, but “all is possible” right? 🙂

    I admire the work you are doing in helping to bridge the gap between men and women. I was initiated in 2006. I have been married for about 40 years, have three wonderful, successful children, and am trying to restore the love between my wife, Lucille and I, to what it was like in the early stages of our marriage. Now we have the empty nest, my wife is retired, but is not interested in restoring the loving energy we had before. I’ve been going to counseling by myself, reading therapeutic books, etc., but not having much success. I’m discussing this with my I-Group until they are tired of it. I know you don’t have a Magician’s wand, but what are your thoughts on my situation? Thanks for all you do.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
