After years of focalizing on the female gender and the healing of the feminine principle, I got the impression that it is time to enlarge our focus and put more attention on the male gender and the masculine principle. To me, it is time to acknowledge the misuse of the masculine and to better understand the difference between its shadow and its helpful side. As the feminine and the masculine principle exists both within men and women, this challenge refers to both sexes. The following questions deserve attention: Could it be, that both sexes have to develop a clearer notion of their masculine and their feminine power, of its use, misuse and abuse? Do we need a clearer idea of the essence of the masculine and the feminine? Could it be that In order to come to a servant leadership, we need to achieve a good balance between these principles – inside and outside? And could it be that healing the masculine needs our prior attention now? The colloquium will avoid a predominantly scientific character. It is enriched by the experience of the presenter in psychology, psychotherapy, coaching, training and constellation work. It invites to share experiences and visions and aims at coming to a more comprehensive look at the issue at stake.
