IMD Special Celebration MenSpeak Men's Group - Camden Town
This is a special group to celebrate International Men's Day (IMD)! A men’s group is a group of men, sitting in a circle, hanging out and getting real. We laugh, listen, celebrate life and grow together as we share our experiences, thoughts and feelings beyond our masks. We respectfully challenge one another to be better, more authentic men, without telling each other what to do or how to be. There is no pressure and it’s fine to say "Pass” when it’s your turn to speak. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-rSTNjcXzE Life doesn't have to be bad to come to a men's group. We've been successfully growing - from the good, the bad and even the ugly - as individual men and as a community, since 2002. Watch our 15 min demo of a two and a half hour men's group at Southbank's Being A Man Festival: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYRF8QR8ONM We are accepting, accountable and we want more out of life. We acknowledge who we’ve been and we test drive who we want to be, taking the best of ourselves out into the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=naRM8dhXXJM Please read our Ground Rules before attending the group: http://www.meetup.com/menspeak/pages/MenSpeak_Ground_Rules/ VENUE: The Pirate Castle (Not a pub) 33 Oval Road Gilbey's Wharf, Camden Town NW1 7EA TIME: 6:45pm for 7pm start - 9:30pm Please arrive before 7pm.

Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ng6964Kz0YI Up to 9 men per group, mainly 30s-50s though some 18-80+. OPEN GROUPS VS CLOSED GROUPS This is an 'open' men's group, which means that any man can drop in on a one-off basis. MensSpeak also has 'closed' men’s groups, where men commit to attending every month, for six months. (Most men stay for years.) Closed group men enjoy greater familiarity, friendship and trust, which leads to more openness, honesty, accountability, support, as we progress on our life paths. Lifelong friendships are forged for some, others come to do their personal work, get self-aware and gracefully move on. Closed group men also enjoy discounts, special rates and first dibs on popular events. Closed group six month terms begin in July and January, with trial sessions in June and December before committing. Closed groups meet on the 4th week of each month. Limited spaces available, so please contact me ASAP if you're interested and I'll see if there's space available. NOTE: The group is facilitated by Kenny Mammarella D'Cruz (http://www.themanwhisperer.co.uk). It's not a therapy group, not an encounter group, not a w*nk group; not a group for or against men or women, not a religious group, not a political group, not a group of anything apart from whatever the men present bring to it.

What we're about

A men’s group is a group of men, sitting in a circle, hanging out and getting real.

WHAT WE DO

We laugh, listen and grow together as we share our experiences, thoughts and feelings beyond our masks.

We respectfully challenge one another to be better, more authentic men, without telling each other what to do or how to be. There is no pressure and it’s fine to say "Pass” when it’s your turn to speak.

Life doesn't have to be bad to come to a men's group. We've been successfully growing - from the good, the bad and even the ugly - as individual men and as a community, since 2002.

WHO WE ARE

We are accepting, accountable and we want more out of life.

We acknowledge who we’ve been and we test drive who we want to be, taking the best of ourselves out into the world.

WHO WE ARE NOT

We are not a therapy group, nor an encounter group, nor a w*nk group or a place to pick up men for sex, nor a group against men or women, nor a religious or political group, we're free and unaffiliated.

Every MenSpeak men's group is different, depending on what the men present bring to, and ask of it.

OUR GROUND RULES

Please read the Ground Rules before attending a group. If you'd like to add, remove or change any of the ground rules before we begin, there will be a space to raise this before we begin.

WANT TO TRY A CLOSED GROUP?

(Monthly, over six month terms, renewable for years).

Closed group men have the space to get to know one-another very well, with no comings and goings, no time spent on introductions and getting-to-know (and trust) you.

Closed group men support each other's journeys through times of breakdown, breakthrough, change and celebration, as things fall apart, then fall together anew.

Closed group men stay in touch between our monthly time together through WotsApp / Signal, personal contact and organised meals, walks, trips away, etc.

Closed group men attend MenSpeak open and online groups at a discount, enjoy priority booking to events with limited slots, or limited to more practised men.

Trial a closed group in June and December 2018. Each of the five monthly closed groups has a very individual identity and limited space, so tell me if you're interested in a trial and I'll suggest which group/s may be a good fit. (Our next six month terms begin in July 2018 and January 2019).
