A semi-structured, informally therapeutic group. Currently meeting on Wednesday evenings fortnightly, at various locations in the upper mountains, often around a campfire.
Structure is: check-in; open sharing (building on themes or urgent issues of check-in); and check-out. Rules are: confidentiality; turn-taking; no advice unless asked for. Normally goes for about 2hrs. Members take turns to host and facilitate, sometimes using different group processes.
The group is sometimes open, and sometimes closed for a period, but always open to meeting other men. We have a private Facebook group and are often involved in each other’s lives beyond the meeting, hanging out and helping out.
