Join me and meet my friend Jeff. He's leading a very important conversation:
‘Thoughts for Men on coping with Social Distancing and Isolation’ : A look at ways men can work through the (e)motions of the COVID19 Pandemic and isolation: we can name what we are feeling, work towards healthy vs violent conflict with those we isolate with, and build connection with other men.
Since 2008, Jeff Perera has been working to build bridges of understanding across our oceans of difference, having spoken to tens of thousands of people across North America about our ideas of being a man today and empathy-building. Jeff works to help inspire new models of possibility for men and young men where we work, live, play, worship or study.
Jeff has delivered interactive talks for team leaders and groups of all genders, fields, creed and faiths.
You can read written pieces, listen to other podcast conversations, and watch interviews with Jeff over at HigherUnlearning.com, which is an online space exploring how limiting ideas of manhood impact us all in everyday life. Jeff’s work is to help nurture brave spaces for real discussion, inspiring people to challenge our gendered ideas of success and failure, and to be the lesson in action.
