ABOUT

An open and diverse group of local men meeting at least twice a month at various places to learn from each other's stories, experience mutual support, prevent isolation, improve mental health, and grow strong leaders. We inspire each other to reconnect with our truthfulness, feel inner power and cultivate our life for ourself, our families and communities.

INDOOR EVENING MEETINGS
Every 1st and 3rd Thursday

An open and diverse group of sharing and mutual support. Come to share or listen to the stories of other local men 17+ who feel the need to connect with themselves and the group, silence... 

We meet EVERY 1st and 3rd THURSDAY OF THE MONTH at 7 pm, please come on time as at some point we may lock the door from inside to protect the group by preventing new people from entering the room in the middle of sharing. The door will still be unlocked for the guys inside to allow anyone to leave freely anytime.

Optional KOHA contribution to the venue and organisers, you can also bring some biscuits or fruit to share during a short tea break.

Each event is facilitated by a different leader, the aim is to co-create and give participants the opportunity to grow through leadership in a supportive group.
