Are more men becoming interested in spirituality?

Spiritual menI admit that's a bit of a loaded-question, but I just spent an enjoyable weekend at the Hamilton Natural Health Expo. It was the first time I was "flying solo" as a healer in my own right (as opposed to sharing a stand) and it was interesting to observe some quite significant (from my perspective) changes from previous years.

Over the two days I spoke to about 3 or 4 women, but ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE WHO CAME TO MY STAND WERE MEN. Now I was half expecting there to be a few more men than usual (men finding it easier to talk to men, etc.), but not as many as I saw. You often see men come along with their partner who are obviously just there "because". This year was different, and I spoke to other stallholders who said the same thing; there were a significant number of men there on their own; and they were genuinely interested in what was going on.

I have taught classes of all men in the past, and it tends to be a very different dynamic to a class of women. Neither better nor worse, just different.

As a male, I enjoyed John's teaching style, humour, self-awareness - and in a class full of men. It helped me find resonance between the ideas of Theta' and my own particularily male/masculine personality.

So is this a change "across the oboard"? I think it is a good thing. I have found that (gross generalisation coming up) men resonate with ThetaHealing as it appeals to the logical, left-side of the brain. There is the dialogue (we call it digging) and you have something tangible to work with. I mean, I worked in IT for 30 years (you don't get much more left-brain than that) and I really enjoy Theta'.

It is even possible that the next Basic class I run (likely to be early in 2019 at this stage) will be an all-male class judging by the contacts and feedback from the expo.
