Returning February 2022
Life happens to all of us. We all experience the heartbreak of losing someone we love, getting fired from a job, financial inadequacies, romantic breakups, and other obstacles that life places in our path. There aren't many classes that prepare us for these experiences. For men, there are even fewer mentorship programs.
Beginning in childhood, men are taught to suck it up, don't cry no matter how much it hurts, and 'Be a Man." Any signs of vulnerability are seen as a weakness. It seems as if men are not supposed to have feelings or express their emotions. So men grow up holding all of this in with nowhere to release it unless they are in sports. For those that aren't athletic, what are they to do?
Similar to the cap on an unopened shaken bottle of soda, eventually all of the hurts and pains are released in an inevitable explosion. Society has coined this reaction as "Toxic Masculinity." We at Ori Eni couldn't disagree more. Therefore, we have created a space where men can commune among other men and feel free to express their hurts and disappointments in a judgment-free environment called Menergy.
Menergy is a 4-week virtual workshop, hosted by Ori Eni Co-founder and Ori Coach Makanjuola, where our brothers, fathers, husbands, uncles, and friends can safely release the stresses of life amongst other like-minded gentlemen. Menergy is for men of all ages ranging from 18 years old and up. In each session, we will cover topics specific to the experiences of men. Elder and young men alike can unpack their scars and start the process of healing.
Orieni.com aligns your thoughts with the wisdom of Olodumare through Narrative Reconciliation so that you can Free Your Mind.
Let's be real. Men do not have healthy outlets to express themselves or unload their emotions. For the most part, the only outlet men have is the Barbershop. So if men can not unload their stresses how does it get released? If this energy is not addressed and purged it will inevitably create dis-ease and show up as destructive behaviors.
Menergy is a four-day course engineered to disrupt this painful reality. Menergy is a safe space where men can release their disappointments, heartbreaks, and stresses in a brotherly huddle and receive divine spiritual coaching to help them process these he-motions ultimately leading to a lighter heart and clearer mind, body, and spirit. Let's change the narrative and incite reputable resolve.
Menergy Virtual Brunch
Behind every fruitful discussion, is a good meal. Fuel the conversation by ordering out or by breaking out the apron and showing off your cooking skills. The moral of the story is, please don't show up empty-handed. Well, it's supposed to be a brunch right?
Twice per month, we'll host a virtual brunch for the fellas. Get on the MVB list to make sure you are included on our list of attendees.
