What to expect?

“Intimate Conversations” is a unique opportunity to explore the topics that impact us all in our human experience of relating and connection, in a safe & sacred space. It is an intentional deep dive into all that is real, but perhaps not discussed openly in everyday conversations.
This intimate conversation is for women. The topic we will be exploring together for this event is: Understanding the Masculine. There are four awesome men who will be joining us – Duncan Burns, Bear Nutting, Jordan Hackett & Danny Redbard. Each of these men have done extensive Men’s work, offer self development services & support and bring their own expertise & life experience. They are all passionate about supporting women in their growth and are keen to provide insights that may be helpful for women to gain a deeper understanding of some of their experiences with men.
Whether you are single or in a relationship, you will gain from this conversation, the men will be sharing from different perspectives and the questions will cover many different scenarios.
You will have the opportunity to ask the men questions you have always wanted to ask, in a safe and supported space. Or you can sit back and take it all in.
We will be delving into some key areas that impact connection & relating between the masculine & feminine. We will come together in transparency & truth and shine the light on assumptions, misperceptions & distortions, in hope of cultivating empathy & bridging the gap between us.
This invitation is for women that are in a space of taking personal responsibility for their growth and healing. Women that are seeking to learn, deepen their understanding (of both self & the masculine) as well as consider our own healing with the masculine.

Men’s Bios

Duncan Burns
My name is Duncan Burns and from the age of 15, I first start suffering with depression, first drug addiction and suicidal ideology.
At the age of 20 I was involved with an outlaw gang. Over the next 9 years I had multiple drug addictions and faced death many times, culminating in me being shot dead and brought back at the age of 29, just after the birth of my first child and was diagnosed with chronic PTSD and severe depression, after leaving that lifestyle.
I then worked in the mines for 7 years, burying my head in work and raising my 2 daughters and choosing not to work on my mental health issues and healing myself, which ended up with me being addicted to ‘ice’ for 3-4 years and the breakdown of the relationship with the mother of my girls. This relationship ended up being very toxic, due to both side not dealing with our issues and became physically violent at the end as well.
I lived in my car for 4 months at this stage and pretty much attempted suicide twice. This is when I started reading self help books and fasting and cold water therapy.
I became a youth worker and I met the mother of my son soon after and once again this relationship turned extremely toxic due to both parties having mental health issues and not working on ourselves. When the break up of this relationship started, I became involved with men’s work and have been involved with men’s circles for the last 3-4 years and now co-facilitate them with Danny Redbard.
Also in this time I have worked with disengaged youth and ex-gang members transitioning out of that lifestyle and jail and supporting them to transform their lives.
I am also working with men and women through my 8 week program, to empower them to create change within their life.
I have a diploma of community services and a qualified NLP practitioner.

“I loved the circle ‘Understanding the masculine’. Hearing the men share openly, generously and courageously was in itself a balm for my heart. A relief, softening and turn on for my woman. It was amazing to be in a conversation that touched on some edgy topics very rarely addressed so openly between men and women. Topics that are fundamental to relating in a good, healthy way. It released some of my discomfort and fears around giving voice to these topics when I relate with a man. I got to hear specifics around what men want and need, their fears and desires. By the end of the circle, I felt peace, hope and great love. Thank you Cine and each man present.”

“I absolutely loved this container to explore deeply all the judgements and preconceived ideas I have about the masculine due to poor interactions in the past. Cine guided the conversation in such a beautiful balance that allowed the men to fully show up in openness and vulnerability and that also allowed me to go there with them. Deep gratitude to you all!”

“My takeaway is to be courageous and stand in my truth and authenticity when connecting with men. And that also life is equally as hard to navigate as a man. Being more open and understanding of the wounds that men can also hold. I really want to thank all the men for being their beautiful selves and sharing themselves with us women!”

“Hi Cine and beautiful men who co-created a beautiful healing container for me to feel deeply touched and heart-opened. Thank you everyone for showing up. I truly loved the experience.”

“The honesty and vulnerability the men showed and shared with their stories was really touching and to gain an understanding that their insecurities are not so different to my own, which is something I didn’t give enough thought to in the past. Their need to feel safe was a really impactful statement for me.”
