Helping Men Embrace Their Spirituality And Heal From Deep Trauma
~by Fred Kluth
When I was 16, I was assaulted and my girlfriend at the time was in a great danger at the time of being raped. I share this intense story in this podcast I recorded recently (link to listen below). This experience was not only deeply traumatic to me but also sparked a deeper path of spiritual discovery in my life and a quest to be healed.
Someone had tried to kill me. This person was never found or brought to justice. It’s possible that he never intended the whole thing to happen. My story isn’t uncommon. Everyday more and more people are coming forward with their own stories of assault, rape, betrayals, and suffering.
Wombandhara.org is my wife Dhyana and my endeavor to share what we have learned on this long healing journey. My intention is to lead people to a path of understanding which will hopefully help bring peace and healing to their lives. For those who are struggling with their lives, I have tools and practices that I would like to share with people to help them open to greater sense of love for themselves and the people in the world. These tools have worked for me and I feel called to share them.
I recently had the opportunity to record a podcast with Dan Doty, one of the leaders and organizers of a nationwide men’s group working to help men find their way in this world, helping to providing a space for men to drop their guards and connect with each other. Each of us is trying to learn how to overcome the great pain that every man can be carrying without the tools to free ourselves from the restraints which constrict our ability to feel freely, deeply, in order to live a full life.
For me, this was a big step in embracing my calling and talking about some deeply personal experiences that helped put me on my path of being a person who is called to help people embrace their life fully, to help heal the wounds that are holding them back from being fully present in their bodies and their lives.
Since Dan started the podcast I really wanted to be on it and was brave enough to ask him last month. He enthusiastically said yes. We discussed the relationship men have with spirituality and emotion, and the work that needs to be done with deep trauma. It was a deep conversation about my path to becoming a womb shaman and what I have learned, the challenges we have as men to embrace a spiritual path and how to become men who live in our bodies, fully present in our relationships and nurturing the love in our lives.
I invite everyone to drop in and listen to this stirring conversation. I would love to hear your feedback and any questions. You can listen to the my conversation with Dan by clicking one of the links below.

SHAKTI is the primordial cosmic energy of creation, the living liquid energy that moves through the entire universe and animates all life and matter. May we all allow our feminine energy to flourish with its vulnerable strength to ignite the birthing fire within each of us!
Dhyana and Fred Kluth share experiences, insights, inspiration and resources as they continue their dance with the awakening elemental dragons and navigate the sometimes clear and sometimes murky waters of their lives, in symbiotic relationship with each other and all life on this planet.
