What we're about

Imagine a group of men willing to talk honestly about anything - even the stuff we are supposed to hide. Imagine building community with men committed to supporting and challenging one another to live with integrity, compassion, and purpose. Imagine getting skills to be the kind of man you want to be, with men who drop the facade and speak from the heart. You can have it. We’ll save you a chair.

Men that care about you are holding an Open Men's Group from 6:30 until 8:00 pm on the first Monday of each month in Des Moines currently via virtual meeting space on Zoom.

Why Personal Mastery?
Are you committed to discovering the best in yourself?
If you answer YES to this question. Come join us.
Do you want better relationships with family, friends, co-workers?
Do you want to learn how to better handle conflict?
Do you want to break out of a rut?
Do you want to be part of a community working to make the world a better place?
Do you want to discover what being a man is all about ... FOR YOU?
Do you instinctively NOT trust men (or women or yourself)?
Set a goal for Personal MASTERY. See what happens!

The Open Men's group is a place to find Clarity and Connection, a place to Pursue Personal Mastery of what it means to be a mature man in this era of uncertainty. We focus on building Emotional Integrity and promoting Radical Personal Responsibility - by challenging and deeply supporting one another to be everything we were born to be.

FREE. Open to any man.

The men who facilitate this group care deeply about making our communities safer, more open and more resilient. Any man willing to follow some simple ground rules…confidentiality, punctuality, non-violence, respect for others and their opinions…is welcome.

What do we do? We sit together. We talk to each other about what's going on in our lives. We listen to one another. We do not shame or criticize. We use exercises to help you be more connected, more awake, better able to navigate the difficulties in life. A men's group is a place to figure out what you want in your life, take steps to make it happen and continually look at what is getting in the way of being fully alive and empowered.
