Poetry reading & intimate dialogue based on the book: Trading Armour for a Flower: Rise of New Masculine. We will explore: What is the true purpose of masculine energy within men and women? How can we heal the the wounded masculine (manifested as gender violence) to new healed masculine (that honours each individuals sacredness)?

I recently published the book Trading Armour for the Flower. Its based on my personal reflections and experiences as a life-coach and international development sector facilitator. I integrate contemplative theatre & deep dialogues to facilitate collective action on socio-ecological divides. I am based out of Pune and work as co-director of Social Presencing Theatre at Presencing Institute in USA. I have facilitated similar dialogues in Pune, Mumbai and Bangalore in partnership with MAVA (Men Against Violence & Abuse), Agami (Law & Justice innovators network), Joyous Women Leadership Network, and local book cafe and theatre groups
