Life occasionally presents us with pivotal crossroads—be it during a quarter-life crisis, a phase of profound existential contemplation, or amidst major life shifts such as a drastic career transition or the commencement of a new chapter.

Mandala Ideation & Design – A Process for Individuals, Teams and Organizations

Frequently, teams are too immersed in their own context to objectively assess opportunities or challenges. They benefit from an external perspective and a structured approach to unlock their potential. The “Mandala Ideation Design” process offers a novel take on brainstorming and creative problem-solving. This methodology advocates for a comprehensive and inclusive ideation journey, fostering a sense of unity and cooperative spirit within the team. Its visually engaging and iterative approach not only enriches the idea generation process but also paves the way for distinctive, actionable, and forward-thinking solutions. As a strategic tool, it excels in enhancing creativity and problem-solving skills in a business environment.


Circles of Men: A Counter-Intuitive Approach to Creating Men’s Groups, is a self-help book. The book describes a specific model for creating and facilitating men’s groups, which are meant to provide a safe and supportive space for men to explore their emotions, connect with other men, and work on personal and collective growth.

The author, Clay Boykin, draws from his own experiences as a facilitator of men’s groups and shares his insights into the unique challenges and opportunities that men’s groups can offer. The book emphasizes the importance of creating an atmosphere of safety and trust, where men can be vulnerable and honest with each other, and it offers practical advice on how to do so. The book also covers a series of exercises and activities that can be used to facilitate the group’s sessions. They are meant to help men to explore their emotions and inner selves, to find their authentic voice, and to create deeper connections with other men.

The book’s counter-intuitive approach, as stated in the title, is the idea that men’s groups are not only beneficial for men, but that they are also essential for the well-being of society as a whole. The author argues that men’s groups can play a crucial role in addressing issues such as toxic masculinity, men’s mental health, and the breakdown of communities, by providing men with the tools and support they need to become more authentic, compassionate, and responsible individuals.
