More about this group

Men's Group

As men, we often have ways of "going it alone" in life. Without realizing it, we fall into patterns or circumstances that drain our vitality, leaving us feeling isolated, dissatisfied, or with a nagging sense that the life we are living is not quite the life we want. For thousands of years men have addressed this dilemma by periodically coming together to support each other to remember who we are, what truly matters to us, and how to live in accordance with our genuine values.
