This is a new group for Men to meet up to talk, share and listen. All men, of all ages and backgrounds, are welcome. Although the group is public, this is a confidential and safe space for men to discuss whatever they wish and receive support and encouragement from other members of the group.
How the meetings will work:
We will meet every few weeks at the Widcombe Social Club in Bath - on Wednesday nights from 7-9pm.
First meeting is 7th November 2018, then again on 21st November 2018.
After agreement of the ground rules, we will have a short 'check-in' round at the start. Everyone who wants to will get a chance to speak and the discussion will be lightly moderated around themes emerging in that session.
You can read the ground rules here: (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TFCC7fXFHhKEJxPFt_uXOILGbpN7WoR1v-NAip6HVfw/edit?usp=sharing)
The first couple of meetings will try out various discussion techniques and I will ask the group for feedback as we progress. There will be no charge for the first few meetings, and after that there will be a small charge for each session to cover costs.
The aim is to run both Open groups (anyone can attend at any time) and Closed groups (fixed group of men meeting regularly over a set period of time). The first few sessions will start as open groups.
