The problem can be put very simply: Most men don’t have a life. What we call our life is mostly just a big act, a mask that we clamp onto our face each morning and don’t take off until we fall asleep at night. Most men are flat out every day living a lie. We’ve all grown so used to this, we don’t even notice it anymore. The New Manhood by Steve Biddulph.
Melbourne Men’s Group
The purpose of the Melbourne Men’s Group is to build meaningful community and authentic connections with other men. Monthly Meetings are located close to central Melbourne (in Clifton Hill) near the Eastern freeway. New members to the group are very welcome. Melbourne Men’s Group meetings are open to anyone who wants to participate. There are NO:
- pre-requisites for joining the group
- membership fees
- religious or political affiliations
By participating in the Melbourne Men’s Group you can:
- reduce isolation
- be listened to and genuinely heard
- feel safe sharing feelings and perspectives
- speak honestly, openly and confidentially without judgement
- develop authentic friendships that are not based on your job, the car you drive or the sporting team you follow.
The Melbourne Men’s Group also offers opportunities for personal development with The Man’s Inner Journey program which has been presented in Australia for 17 years – this incredible workshop for men happens in November most years at Healesville Victoria. Check the Man’s Inner Journey link for dates.
