Film about 'Being a Man' - Boys/Men/The Mask We Live In

Suburban Sandcastles’ next film screening is on Wednesday 15th July in Parkdale.

'The Mask You Live In' follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s (and our) narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence.

These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become “real” men. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the “boy crisis” and tactics to combat it. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.

Following the film screening there will be a panel with Melissa Rowe, social worker and counsellor and Brett Fisher, Neuroscience and Behaviour Expert

Suburban Sandcastles have a great bundle of prizes up for grabs kindly donated by our exhibitors and local businesses. Proceeds from this month’s raffle will support a financially disadvantaged child to take part in my ‘Master Yourself & You Can Master Anything’ program.

The Mastery Club® at The Scottish Kids' Show

Theresa Day, our Facilitator in Scotland, hosted a stand at the Scottish Kids Show with her daughter Giordan last weekend. They both wore green ’Nina’ wigs, as you can see from the pics below! Theresa says, 'The wigs were extremely successful and drew loads of attention and conversation. Kept us really warm at times as well.' - That green wig really suits you!

They gave out 52 info flyers and some 40 CD recordings of the first chapter of the book, and spoke to many parents, and Theresa was invited to speak about The Mastery Club and the program she will be running this month on a local community radio station called SHMU that has some 14000 listeners – so here’s to a spike of interest in Scotland!

We're Out Of The Woods!

Warranwood Primary School has now completed The Mastery Club® 10 Week Program. Thank you again to Guest Speaker and Sponsor, John Salton, who inspired the kids with stories about his achievements and his goals, and planted many useful seeds re eating a wholesome diet. One student went away and created an amazing slideshow summary of his presentation – hope to share it with you soon! Below: John challenging students with an exercise in focus. Many were surprised...

Thank you also to the Schools Focused Youth Service for funding this program, and to teacher Mia Sartori for co-ordinating it. I’ll be speaking with parents one evening early in third term to follow up, and am in the midst of conversation with another principal for a program in third term.

Happy school holidays everyone, whether you’re on a term break or your big summer hols!
