mens_circle

Men's Circle is a non-religious group offering a place for men to learn about themselves and share space amongst brothers to be heard and to listen.

We foster authenticty, accountability and the integration of emotion and logic. We believe men are capable of effective communication and healthy boundaries. We understand that men face challenges that can often leave them feeling isolated. Whilst solitude and adventure play vital parts in a man's evolution, it's imperative that a man is able to yield to the mysteries of life and give his all, to shed his heart and skin so that his life is congruent with his values.

Men's circle is a supportive space in which men from all walks of life can tap into their own wisdom amongst brothers of the same spirit.

The group is guided by Creative Medicine Therapist Jhana Bowen and Psychotherapist Alan Redstone. Both Alan and Jhana have worked to support men in groups and individually for years. Together they create an atmosphere conducive for men to explore topics and issues integral to men and their evolution.

We will meet on Thursday nights at 6pm in Tahoe Donner. Attendance is by donation.

For further info or to attend please contact either Alan or Jhana by phone or email.
