Episode #6 - The Male Perspective & SVAM wrap up
In our final episode of season 1, Tara & Tandia talk with Graeme from Sacred Sons. The Sacred Sons are a group that help men grow and awaken to their true power through circles, workshops, retreats, and online courses. In our conversation, we talk about what it means to be a male feminist, why its important men find a space to share and connect with other men, the importance of modelling behaviour and what a culture of consent could look like with the male perspective.

After our conversation with Graeme, we reflect on the past month and our key takeaways from Sexual Violence Awareness Month.
For Tandia it was that it’s never too early to teach consent, “no” is a full answer, and the importance of setting personal boundaries. For Tara it was the importance of modelling this behaviour, calling it out when we see consent not being respected in the media and the impact of practicing everyday consent in daily life.
We are thrilled with the response to our first season and look forward to another in the near future. If you have ideas or would like to collaborate with us please reach out. We can be reached through our website www.harmonyproject.ca
