I show men how to experience life with a healed heart, a sound mind, calm emotions, confident actions, deep and emotionally-satisfying connection, and vibrant, passionate intimacy
Men who desire to live a life of significance must do so in the fellowship of other men.
Thanks for dropping by…
I’m Sven Masterson and I’m a passionate, loving mentor of men.
Here on my site you’ll find blogs posts that represent my thoughts on many subjects related to the masculine journey. I write about the same subjects that I also help men with through mentoring: identity, significance, value, sexuality, marriage and relationships, faith, spirituality and more.
“We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers.”
Dr. Martin Luther King

You don’t have to do this alone. Talk with a man who’s been there.
We help men become the heroes they’ve always longed to be, surrounded by the kind of men they’d long since lost hope could guide them there.
For about twenty years, I couldn’t figure out why I felt alone in crowds, unvalued, unappreciated, unseen, unhappy, and ultimately, unloved. This wasn’t what I signed up for! I constantly wondered, “what the hell happened here?”
I thought my absence of male friends was because other men were all shallow. I felt that good men who could talk about something other than sports, booze, and hobbies were proverbial unicorns in the world. As a result, I struggled to develop close bonds with other men.
I’ve sat with many men lamenting their fathers’ lack of instruction and their shame for not knowing how to do some things. I understand that frustration, not getting a lot of teaching I would have preferred also. However, the instructions my dad couldn’t give me…
For almost twenty years, I lived as a serf, disappointed that my needs never seemed met and exhausted from the constant asking and angling for more respect, appreciation, validation, love, sex, passion, connection, and free time to myself. “This isn’t fair! This isn’t what partnership was supposed to be about!”
Many men embrace conditional regard thinking it’s how they can create and enforce good personal boundaries. In fact, the opposite is true. Men with conditional regard for others require things from others that they can’t control.
