Men’s Circles

A safe confidential place for you to share and grow and discover how alive, inspired and grounded you can be.

Come alive

Discover how alive, inspired, grounded and connected you can be.

A Mankind Project Men’s circle (know as an iGroup) is all about personal growth and connection. Our peer-facilitated men’s circles help you clarify your vision for life, and get the tools, learning and support to become the kind of man you want to be.

Get the skills, awareness and support you need to achieve the change you want.

Why do I need a Men’s Circle?

  • NDo you want to delve deeper into your understanding of yourself?
  • NDo you want to raise and explore questions in a safe, non-judgemental, confidential male environment?
  • NDo you want to explore what means to have deeper and more connected relationships with your b partner, children, friends and family?
  • NDo you want to understand the your issues and problems that appear in your life?
  • NDo you want to explore where you are being a victim and take control of how you respond?

EXPERIENCE FIERCE, LOVING SUPPORT

DEEP, INSIGHTFUL MALE CONNECTION

What is a Men’s Circle?

Men have sat in ‘circles’ since the dawn of time. Put simply a Men’s Group is a group of men who come together regularly to hear and support each other.

Over the last 35+ years the Mankind Project has developed tools and a structure that allows men to share deeply and to encourage and challenge each other compassionately – all with the intent of helping each other establish and pursue their own life purpose and nurture their emotional and social wellbeing. 

Imagine a circle of men, a circle of brothers, where:

  • NEveryone listens not only to what you say, but also to the truth beneath your words
  • NEveryone is in tune with your voice, your emotions, your energy
  • NYou will be reminded of your commitments, so you can hold yourself accountable and keep yourself moving forward toward your aspirations and goals
  • NMen are deeply curious about what it is that inspires you, what you value, what you are most passionate
  • NMen will support you to clarify your vision and provide tools for action and learning
  • NMen tell you the truth about where you are strong and where you sell yourself short
  • NMen know you’re capable of more than you believe and they know what you want

This is how a ManKind Project Men’s Circle works.

Through the Mankind Project iGroups, I gain the powerful tools and support to explore my inner world, connect with others in meaningful ways, and step into a more authentic and fulfilling version of myself.

KEIL – BRISBANE CITY IGROUP | Veteran

For 20 years, I have been going to iGroup weekly and it is my perception that it is a safe place where men build strong supportive connections to other men so that they are willing to share the deepest parts of themselves. Listening to the experiences of other men and sharing my own has been more helpful to me than working with therapists and I have met many men who would agree.

Mankind Project I Group for me is a place I can go to speak my truth without judgement and express how I really feel and get support from emotionally responsible and connected men. It is also where I go to offer that same support to men who need it. I have attended I group in 3 different countries over a period of 18 years.

How do I get involved?

THERE ARE MEN’S CIRCLES IN VARIOUS LOCATIONS ACROSS QUEENSLAND AND INDEED AUSTRALIA.

You are invited to check us out and learn how ‘doing the work’ of sitting with men can profoundly impact how alive, successful, inspired and grounded you can be. 

A lot of the Men’s Circles are “Open” to visitors and indeed it is how many men progress through to doing the New Warrior Training Adventure Weekend. Fully aware, fully supported emotionally and once done there is a bunch of brothers to come “home to”. Men’s group/I-group attendance is usually free, but if not a small contribution to room hire may be requested.
