Men's groups in Melbourne - supportive peer led circles for men

Open circles

The Mankind Project hosts several men's groups in and around Melbourne which are open to guests and new participants.  These are safe spaces where men gather to provide support and work on issues in their lives.  There are no prerequisites to attending - all you need is a willingness to examine how you are leading your life as a man.  Men benefit from peer group support through facilitated process work which empowers men to lead the lives they choose. Men's support groups are an invaluable part of life for the men who attend.

In Melbourne, we have regular open circles as listed below.

(In addition to open circles, we hold New Warrior Training Weekends. For men who have completed this weekend, iGroups and further trainings are also offered.)
