Join a new group of Men to explore
What is Possible for you?
This group will support you in aligning your life with what is more meaningful and connected—to yourself, your relationships, and perhaps to something greater.
Inviting men of all beliefs and backgrounds into a unique opportunity to explore with other men in a small group setting of 8-10 people, facilitated by a psychotherapist and certified meditation instructor (see below).
In addition to learning scientifically supported meditation techniques to begin or deepen a mindfulness practice which will help your well-being, stress management and focus, our work will help you successfully navigate the usual personal issues that arise on the path of establishing and deepening a meditative, contemplative or spiritual practice—addressing old problematic beliefs, difficult emotions and habit patterns. We will also address how your spiritual beliefs affect dating and work relationships.
