Coming Home: Therapeutic Men's Circles
Monday Nights, 7pm - 9pm.
Being male is something you’re born as; however becoming a strong, emotionally intelligent and open man is not a given. Being this type of man takes practice, a practice that gets worked out in the intimate and everyday relationships that make up our lives. Despite cultural training to be independent and self-sufficient, the simple fact is that men, like women, are sensitive, relationally dependent beings. In order to thrive, supportive social and intimate relationships are not optional, they are necessary.
Relationships with other men carry a unique potential. Whether through competition or cooperation, men have always needed other men to help develop and refine their abilities. When functional, friendships and alliances with other men give us a sense of grounding, of comradery, of play, and of insight. Men’s work is very much about creating a stable platform to develop these possibilities.
In this group you will:
- Strengthen emotional intelligence and relational competence
- Let go of limiting beliefs about yourself and others
- Develop your sense of purpose and accountability
- Get grounded in the experience of being a man among men
