"Men don’t have a place to experience real connection. When our relatability is limited to one-word texts, small chat in bars, or keeping it “cool” in the workplace, there is little room for something genuine—something authentic. As a result, we keep our inner landscape of thoughts, emotions, and personal struggles tucked away, never to make contact with the outside world for fear that we may be judged, ridiculed, or “unmanly” as a result of having a single feeling that strays from the image of the “tough guy who has all his shit together.” We check out, go dead inside, and from this place life becomes a series of uninspired moments with a lack of purpose and meaning. But what if there was another way?
Enter Growing Men—a safe and compassionate space for men to deviate from the norm and explore the territory of our own truth, process our “feels” in the company of other men, and allow ourselves to be supported by the stories and common trials we as men all face. Most of us have never had the venue to participate in that radical conversation; Growing Men is that conversation starter, and the ending of a silence that numbs us. Expect to open up, be challenged in a gentle yet affirming way, but most importantly to have something deep and meaningful to sink your teeth into and nourish life back into that hungry part of yourself. This is a place to heal, grow, and change—together.
Growing Men is held by Anthony Reynolds, integrative counsellor and men’s work facilitator, and Bruce Bray, elder in the wellness and healing community."
