Many men fail to embrace their identity and mission in the family, in the Church, and in society
Little exists to aid them in genuine masculine character growth. An integral understanding of authentic manliness appears absent, and intelligible spiritual approaches for men seem wanting. While several men’s organizations exist to form men, frequently their leaders are poorly-trained and ill-equipped in their comprehension and application of even the basics of manly character and development. Lacking are organizations dedicated to gathering and publishing sound teachings and disseminating them effectively in families, schools, men’s groups, seminaries, etc.
On September 28-29, a group of experts in the field of men’s spirituality and character development will assemble for the 3rd annual summit of the Masculine Genius Institute, a gathering for academic presentations and discussions on the core elements of the masculine nature. The goal of this summit is to produce media resources for the Church which emerges from the research and findings presented, as well as the resulting recommendations, to advance the integral development of manliness. Each annual summit of the Masculine Genius Institute will promote ongoing serious presentation and discussion of the masculine mission, identity, and journey, as well as the issues and challenges pertaining to the character growth and pastoral care of men.
