What we're about

The Circle of Men is based in Central New York is a personal growth and personal development, Empowerment Men's Group.

Our members are from Central New York, Maryland, Pennsylvania and other locations. Our preference is to have men from the USA Eastern States regions.

We were formed in 2018 as an in-person group. Due to our 2020 National Public Health Crisis (Covid-19), we transition having Virtual Gatherings through the ZOOM platform.

If you are interested in exploring, participating, or joining our interactive Men's Group. The Zoom Link is sent via Email. So therefore, if you want to attend one of our Circles, you will need to provide your Email Address in order to obtain our Zoom Link.

The Zoom Link is sent the day BEFORE the schedule Circle Gathering. Please confirm here on this Meetup site if you want to participate in our Circle. We meet EVERY TWO WEEKS on Sunday evenings from 6:00P.M. until 8:00P.M.

NOTE: DURING THE 2021 SUMMER MONTHS WE MEET ONCE A MONTH!

The format and topics are casual and relaxed. The conversation is real and practical. The guys who attend may be the same ones you’d grab a beer, or tea, watch a game, hang out with your kids with; or discussing books, articles, or personal development topics; or guys that you haven't met.

We take a couple of hours to have some honest conversation about challenges and growth opportunities that are shared (roles, career, family, relationships) and about specific issues that someone might want to share or to ask for support. By the end of the evening, you’ll have learned something, we guarantee it – whether it’s about yourself or the world around you – and you’ll be glad you spent the time.

We practice Silent Meditation, Reading Our Agreements, Check-In Rounds, Check-Out (Take Away), Sharing Emotions and Thoughts, Ice-Breaker Activities, selected reading portions from our Circle of Men guide, and providing reflections or feedback.

Currently, we are limiting our gatherings to 12 men in order to aid the process of friendship, bonding, trust, and communication during the gatherings. Join us for one gatherings to see if you like what we are about,
