We all need a little maintenance!
This group is a safe place for men to be understood and supported as we wrestle with issues ranging from work and career to relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, anger, and abuse. Experience the support and healing that a relational therapy brings to the group!What is success? What is my mission in life? What does the term “A good father” mean? What being a man means in 2015. Leaving… and death. Defining ourselves apart from our work, redefining ourselves as being more than our work. Coming into “authentic power” as a man. Being better fathers. Living with our loneliness and sense of separation – the male lone-wolf syndrome. Keeping perspective; keeping a sense of humor. Finding mentors, role models and being one. Developing intimacy in our lives. Learning how to share feelings. Not being dominant or submissive in our lives, achieving balance of strength & vulnerability. Maintaining our pride of men while we affirm the importance of feminism. Nurturing our relations with spouses, lovers, children, fathers, mothers and friends. Developing a more in depth understanding of our relationships with women. Confronting men’s violence towards women. Converting our own rage and violence into a constructive force. Focusing on the need for health and self-care. What is the burden you would most like to lay down? What was it like to grow up as a boy. The importance men play in the lives of boys.
