At MenSpeak, we practice dropping our 'nice guy', 'macho man' or whatever masks we've been wearing, as we talk about what's up in our lives at our own pace and in our own time. There's no pressure to speak and you can always say "Pass" at any time.
We respectfully challenge one another to be better, more authentic men, without telling each other what to do or how to be.
We are accepting, accountable and we want more out of life.
We acknowledge who we’ve been and we test drive who we want to be, taking the best of ourselves out into the world.
We run open drop-in men’s circles - in London (UK) and online – as well as closed groups, which are the same men meeting once a month for six months.
“I felt anxious and spaced out beforehand, but almost immediately after the check-in round I felt much calmer and more stable. I didn’t realise how much I’d missed real sharing with good men. It felt like a luxury to be able to chat, hang out, laugh, talk about real issues and feel connected in such a disconnected and chaotic time. The groups are essential for me for maintaining my sanity and remembering what life is really about - friendship through thick and thin, and finding the humour in every situation.”
