10 Years at the Awaken Studio -♥- 15 Years of working with Men and their Lives -♥- A LIFE TIME of dreams.
YUM -♥-
Excited as I create the spaces and openings for the coming year at the Awaken Studio. 10 years of growth for this sanctuary opening the deepest parts of our shared humanity.
-♥-
This preparation over the next month begins my moving into the 10th year of offering the work of guiding men into their bodies through a pathway leading to their hearts. Using breath, movement, touch and awareness men can find themselves in peaceful loving places.
-♥-
2016 and 2017 marks the 15th year of working with men, their lives, their hearts and minds and bodies.
In 2001 my work was with the minds of men and focused on emotion.
In 2007 my work shifted to include the physical body.
In 2007 I embarked on a journey that would bring me to the curious, lovely and poignant place I have been able to occupy.
In 2012 a great shift happened as moved into taking much more space.
Today the space of the Awaken Studio has developed into a sanctuary that is able to hold a container welcoming of all men.
-♥-
I am so blessed by the great fortune that I have had, to be able to open a space and create a physical environment where men can safely occupy their bodies, embrace themselves and others, opening their hearts to their deepest desires and the open their minds to their greatest potential.

Someone asked me “What got me interested in doing what I do?” My response took some time as I needed to go through a few layers.

Right down at the bottom was that there was nothing here in Toronto that offered me what I was looking for. A safe place for me to gather with other men, to talk, touch and simply be myself without judgement and without having to become someone that I was not.

As a part of the story, I had travelled often to the United States to participate and assist in the events that offered what I was looking for. I wanted more of this and I wanted it with the people who are directly in my life on a day to day basis. I was tired of travelling. I was tired of making myself fit the corporate image that was demanded of me to be a part of these practices, for men coming together to be themselves as they related with other men. In my travels I had learned extensively about “holding space”, “creating a safe and uplifting environment” and ultimately I had learned that one of my strengths was that I could be myself, relaxed and loving as I welcomed men into the spaces and places of my dreams. I could find myself and be myself as I supported the men around me to be themselves.

The beginning of the Awaken Studio took place here in Toronto in March of 2012 as I prepared to offer this space for many events as a part of a very diverse program. The “NEW Beginning” really took place a few months later as I realized that I was totally and profoundly alone and on my own. I realized that my travelling days were behind me and that I simply needed to stand in my own ability to create, innovate and be exactly who I wanted to be. I had to give myself permission to cut the ties and simply be me and go for what I wanted and what I had dreamed of all of my life.

From the beginning, back in 2012 and even before that, for what seems to me to be all of time, I have grown and developed and found myself. I have explored and discovered the strength to stand on my own as I accept help, love and support from those around me. I have learned and found how to transform fear and uncertainty into permission to move forward fearlessly.

As an ongoing practice of my life I express gratitude on a daily basis. Today I find that I am profoundly grateful for the teachers that have brought me to this place. I can even say that I am profoundly grateful for those who have done their best to belittle me, tell me that I am irrelevant, that I will not succeed and that I am misguided for doing this on my own, I am actually able to be thankful to these bullies and miss guided souls.   I am profoundly grateful for the men who I interact with daily for they are the reason that I live. I am profoundly grateful for my husband of over 40 years as he is the reason that I can love the way I do.

The Happy Ending is not nearly so fraught with angst and fear as the New Beginning. The Happy Ending is really an ongoing opening into the world as I become more and more myself, grateful everyday for the world around me and the LOVE and BEAUTY that supports me and nourishes me.

LOVE – LIGHT and Blessings to all.

Phillip and HIS Kind… The search for… Community.

It feels like I have been searching all my life for a group that is like me.

I have decided to give up that search. I feel like I will never find that group. I feel that I will never find a group of men that will not want to make me change to be like them.

There has been a process involved with coming to the realization that I simply need to stay within myself.

The start of the process was the never ending feeling, thoughts and stories that I gave to myself and took into myself that there was something “WRONG” with me. This is an ever ingrained story that I have been taking and then placing on myself for all of my life. I felt as a young child that there was something “WRONG” with me. I did not want to play the way the other children played. As a teen ager and as a young man I felt that there was something “WRONG” with me. I did not want to socialize and “date” in the way that seemed acceptable. I wanted to be with others who were like me. The longing to be with those who thought like me began at this time of my life. I believe that it is in my teen years that I really began to feel that I was damaged and I was at this time that I began to really feel shame about who I was. As a young man I simply felt freakish and sought out others that were freakish. Our shared freakishness was never the same. I was simply comfortable to be together with another group that seemingly felt the same push back from the world around them. As I grew older I isolated more and more and felt more and more separate from the world around me. I was fortunate in that I had a great partner and we have had a wonderful life together. The separateness and difference became all the more evident to me as I grew older and I simply could not identify with the roles. The names, labels, the identities that the world put on me never seemed to fit, I continuously worked to fit and see if I could “morph” myself into an acceptable form. The cloak of shame had hardened into a shell of resistance to the world and to those that would push their identity onto me.

There have been many “morphs” in my adult life, as I would work in earnest and deliberate ways to change myself to fit the role that I thought would work best for me to fit into the place that I was at in my life. There has been a lot of pain and emotion in this desire and effort to simply “FIT” in. I have never “FIT” in.

Time now, with this latest foray into yet another world of men, to stop working, efforting and trying so hard to “FIT” in. It is finally time for Phillip to STOP searching. Finally time for Phillip to simply surrender to the fact that he is perfect just as he is.

For all my life I have never fit in. I am well beyond the middle of my life. It is time to rest assured in myself. Time to come out yet again as a builder of safety, a powerful being and a man full of the skills of life that make him able.

I have lots of experience as being and feeling safe, powerful and able. It is now time to build on these experiences of being, time to stand steadfast in my knowing that I am here to assist others in finding their own safety, their own power and their own ability.

I am curious about how this newfound energy and newfound sense of direction will work to build more safety, power and ability in the world around me, as I share my gifts and the truth and beauty of who I am with the world and the men that grace me with their presence in my life and in the community that I live in.

This from a very personal outlook today as the warmth and light of spring awaken me with their warmth …

Why am i so very distrustful when those I barely know, speak to me and say things to me about “brotherhood”, “camaraderie”, “shared community”… Both my heart and mind say “Sorry, I have barely met you?… I find myself withdrawing and moving to a place of separation… I can easily find myself… (Yes like Alice) in a place where everything is very unfamiliar.

My imagery and thoughts go to how quickly everything moves in the world that we live in and how very little is left to the nurture and trust that can be built when we take getting to know each other a little slow.

LOVE and LIGHT to all out there..

Seeking Community 
Awaken Studio – 270 Carlaw Avenue, Unit 102, Toronto Ontario

The number one comment or question that I receive on a daily basis asks for and about community. Where do men go to find community?

A community that is honest towards the nature and desires of men who love men. A community where you can be naked if you choose. A community where you can be honest about your thoughts, feelings and desires AND you can be in an environment that is Safe, Sane and Conscious. A community where there is little artifice and you are welcome to be yourself without a lot of role play and posturing. A place in the world where all of you is welcome.

At the Awaken Studio, the events and space have been designed for and actively seek the creation of a community of men who love men right here in Toronto. Join in and be a part of this new venture. Come on IN and be yourself.

Below please find listings for the December events at the Awaken Studio. If you wish to attend any of these events please visit the website page for the event that has caught your interest. You will find that it is very easy to register and pay through the event registration page. If for any reason you are uncertain, have a question or simply need more information email me at phillip@phillipcoupal.ca.

Please know that, however you join, however you find your way in, I look forward to this big adventure in building community and I am grateful and glad to be of service to you.
