Welcome to Heartsongs

This website seeks to support the development of conscious empowered masculinity.

In our quest to forge a new vision of masculinity, beyond the destructive conditioning that permeates our society, we celebrate the full equality of women, and seek to eliminate gender-based discrimination, prejudice and abuse wherever it exists.

You have to do it yourself and you don’t have to do it alone.

One of the inherent strengths of this kind of book comes about as a result of adopting exactly this mentoring tone, and La Cerva does it to near perfection, always being positive with his readers but never coddling them. He urges readers to acknowledge frankly their own biases and weaknesses as a first step to countering them and dealing with them, starting with the biggest of these, fear itself. “Fear is always a guest in the living room of your emotions, and you have the power to ask it to quiet down or leave,” he writes. “But first and foremost you must acknowledge its presence!” Such lines are typical of La Cerva’s prose, which is energetic and evocative, clearly designed to stick in the memory. “Don’t surrender,” he writes in one such passage, “your vivacious style to the dungeons of mediocrity by being a slave to convention.” A wisdom-packed modern masculinity handbook that fits easily in the pocket.— Kirkus reviews

Excerpts from Letters To A Young Man In Search Of Himself

Life continually asks you to let go—grieving, forgiving, and being comfortable with feeling stuck. And it also requests that you bring forth—intending, creating, and being a force for good in the world. Believe in the person you want to become, the deep currents of your own life that you are stalking.

Everyone needs a center and an edge. Center is home, in every sense of the word. It is all your relations, everything you deeply love, all that nourishes and supports you. Home is also that little happy peaceful place inside, your inner sanctuary. Edge is the territory of development, risk, change and evolution, where deep desires drive you to a path of growth-infused uncertainty.
