Who is this for?
Adult men from all walks of life, and social backgrounds can benefit from these groups. Typical groups have a range of attendees including those who feel content with life, through to those facing challenges.
‘What’s the point of ‘self-inquiry’?
When a man comes to know his own ‘blind spots’ he can begin to have domain over them. This ‘self-awareness’ can lead to greater presence and mastery of his life, and a stronger connection to self, family and the wider community.
It is our belief that getting to know and ultimately accept both the comfortable (light) and uncomfortable (shadow) parts of ourselves can be very beneficial. When this is done in a community of supportive men, the transformation can be more complete and more connecting than ‘going it alone’.
Often ongoing self-sustaining men’s groups form as a result of such programs. Some groups continue to meet regularly for many years.
