What we're about

At some point and probably at many points, in every man's life, questions of meaning and purpose, and 'am I on the right path', arise. These questions inevitably lead to evaluations of personal authenticity, vulnerability, responsibility, risk tolerance, "safety" and genuine desire. But the hardest and most serious work lies in a man honestly assessing life trajectory - actual choices, patterns of behavior, fixed positions, reactive stances and various accumulations.

"When I look into the mirror, like it or not, what do I see?" Typical questions might be:

· What’s the truth behind saying I’ll do something, then doing something else?

· What’s the truth behind my reactivity?

· What’s the truth behind my actions not matching my desire?

· What’s the truth behind me repeating behavior that doesn’t serve me?

· What’s the truth behind working hard for nothing truly important to me?

We meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesday evenings of each month to navigate this ground as a group. By exploring what is working and not working in depth, and learning from each other, men can start to find their own ways to authentic ground, and to become a more active and vital participant in their own lives.

Revealing truth about beliefs, emotions, behaviors, judgments and patterns takes risking and trust. Each meeting, we create the safe, strictly confidential, judgment-free, no advice-giving container necessary to hold whatever it is that men have happening inside themselves, and in their lives.

Accountability, honesty, shadow, integrity, anger-aggression, shame-toxic shame, sexuality, developmental edge, responsibility, soul’s purpose, responsibility, life mission, sexual shadow, and other subjects may arise.

Why a group? Within a group, a man can go further than by himself. “A hunting party sometimes has a greater chance of flushing Love and God into the open, than a warrior all alone.”- Hafiz. It’s also a great place to get the honest, authentic feedback we need to understand how we impact others.

Our roots go back to 2007, the Mankind Project’s (MKP) New Warrior Training Adventure (NWTA) (https://mankindproject.org (https://mankindproject.org/) and http://mankindproject.org/new-warrior-training-adventure/ ), and the Hero's Journey Foundation’s Men’s Journey (https://herosjourneyfoundation.org (https://herosjourneyfoundation.org/) and https://herosjourneyfoundation.org/journey/the-mens-journey/ ). Our group is open to any man of good will.

We’re not a therapy group, advocacy group, religious group, anti-religious group, social group, MLM group, or a resource for someone’s ego drive to out-compete, beat, dominate, or “win” some illusory game of life. We follow no guru or charismatic leader. We are men who support in one another what needs to be healed and made more clear, vital and meaningful, all in service of living more authentic and truthful lives.

You can only begin from exactly where you are and we welcome all of what that is.
