What I’m most taken by with this group is that it avoids advice (giving), which is such a male trait. It really shows the power in listening. The healing nature of sharing without any expectant results or direction is a path to healing, which is a paradox. Allowing men to feel and express emotions openly and vulnerably is healing in and of itself.
Authentic Man™ Face to Face (F2F) Focus Group was established in 2018 as a supplement to regular Melbourne Men’s Group meetings, providing men committed to their own personal growth a unique opportunity to further deepen their insights in a small group setting with like-minded men.
F2F Men’s Focus Group strives to serve the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing of men. We create opportunities for men to reacquaint themselves with their essentially masculine nature, and to express what they find in a safe and non-judgemental environment. Our experience tells us that by hearing the stories of other men, we often discover that we face common questions even as we navigate our different journeys. We come away from our encounters with other men enriched by the experience, enjoying a deeper clarity within ourselves about who we really are beneath the hustle and chaos of modern life.
Through F2F meetings, in the company of a few good men in their common search of deeper meaning, you are offered the opportunity to explore your own framework and personal experience of being a man, in your relationships and today’s world, without judgement or condemnation, whilst being moderated by an experienced facilitator.
