What we're about

We're men from the Springfield and Dayton areas who are interested in meeting together regularly to help and challenge each other by promoting authenticity, integrity, self-improvement, leadership and healthy masculinity, through peer support and encouragement, mentorship and trainings. The meetings are open to ANY man who is interested in stepping into his power and transforming his life.

I am affiliated with The ManKind Project (http://mankindproject.org), a non-religious organization dedicated to "Changing the World, One Man at a Time". Every belief (or no belief) is welcomed. Members of the Mankind Project (http://mankindproject.org/) come from every walk of life, and we support men to thrive in every aspect of their lives. The ManKind Project (http://mankindproject.org/) helps men discover and live personal missions of service in the world; we are mentors, friends, brothers, and challengers for one another. We strive to be inclusive and affirming of cultural differences, especially with respect to color, class, sexual orientation, faith, age, ability, ethnicity, and nationality.

Our group challenges rigid stereotypes about what it means to be a man, whether it's the "Sensitive New Age Man" or the "Macho Man". We ask men to go right up to the edge - and beyond - in a culture that seems to be comfortable with mediocrity and passivity. We ask men to stop living a vicarious adventure through their TV's and computers and step back into real-time adventure to win back their passion for life.

We encourage all our members to enroll in The Mankind Project's (http://mankindproject.org) flagship training, the New Warrior Training Adventure (http://mankindproject.org/new-warrior-training-adventure/), held over 50 times a year around the country. Our meetings in the Springfield area will always be open to any man, regardless of whether or not you've done the NWTA (http://mankindproject.org/new-warrior-training-adventure/) training.

Yellow Springs Men's Open Circle

Location visible to members

We are a group of men who are interested in meeting regularly to share our experiences as men, to build leadership, and to offer support through life's challenges. Every meeting will start at 6:00 pm and lasts until about 9:00 pm. Please call Bill Ferrell,[masked], for more information.

Our meetings are informal and very inclusive and welcoming. We provide a place where any man can come and be embraced for who he is, share whatever he wants, and step into power and leadership. There are no requirements except some simple ground rules: the most important one is to maintain the confidentiality of all that is said. Men can attend one or many meetings. Real personal growth over time can result from the processes and exercises that are practiced in this Circle. While I and other men in this group are members of the international organization called The Mankind Project (http://mankindproject.org), this is not required or expected. This meeting is open, meaning that any man may attend. Go here (http://mankindproject.org) for more information about The Mankind Project.
