10 week series

For whom?

For any man who is curious or has questions about his masculinity and what it means for him to be a man.
If you’re wondering whether or not you this might be a fit for you, read the statements below to find out if you resonate with any of them:

  • you ask yourself sometimes how being a man affects you and how it impacts your way of being in the world
  • you’ve often struggled with what it means for you to be a man and how you want to express yourself as a man
  • you feel being a man comes with a bunch of benefits and limitations, but you are wondering how other men feel about this
  • you don’t find it easy or even impossible to have this kind of conversations with your regular friends; in any case when you have tried, it has often felt unsatisfying
  • you feel alone in your need to meet other men in a more authentic way and you’d love to find a place where you can meet men who want answers to similar questions like yours
  • you think it would give you more clarity, confidence and direction in life if you’d get a chance to find some answers
  • you’d love to find a group that is not psychotherapeutic, but still offers deep personal work focused on masculinity

What?

  • Ten 2 hour group meetings from January to March ’24 designed to help you better understand your experience of masculinity, together with other men.
    • Every group is run by a professionally trained and experienced facilitator
    • Every group is a mini-workshop focused on a topic. A variety of methods is used. You can expect a mix of check-in, conversational prompts, guided meditation, experiential exercises, creative methods and group sharing.
    • The groups are meant to offer opportunities to go deep into your experience, mindset and thinking about yourself as a man.
  • We’ll work with different topics and each night will offer a different focus on your experience as a man.
    This is the preliminary schedule of the meetings:
    • Monday 8th of January: Being a man
    • Monday 15th of January: Male friendship
    • Monday 22nd of January: Loneliness
    • Monday 29th of January: Connection
    • Monday 12th of February: Body Image
    • Monday 26th of February: Shame
    • Friday 8th of March: Intimacy
    • Friday 15th of March: Your father
    • Friday 22nd of March: Conflict & Anger

      You don’t need to have come to the first event to come to the second etc.
      You can come whenever you want, without prior knowledge or experience.
