reg·u·lar guy: Noun INFORMAL

noun: regular guy; plural noun: regular guys  

a genuine, easy-going, connected man

Do you remember the freedom of childhood? When we were free to spend time with friends, playing, sharing and learning together. Somewhere along the way, those simple friendships started to fade. MenLiving is here to change that because we know that men with strong, genuine friendships live happier, healthier, longer lives.

We’re just a bunch of regular guys. To us “regular” means guys living connected, healthy, intentional lives. MenLiving is committed to delivering the programs & experiences that help men forge the real friendships, community and support that are integral to a healthy, fulfilled life.

We’re not like other groups – we have no requirements, no creeds, no gurus, no judgements – all you have to do is show up.

Where Do I Start?

What is MenLiving?

Connected. Healthy. Intentional.

What is it?

MenLiving is inspired by the challenges faced by men today. In our journey to be good men, the best professionals, partners and parents, we lost some of our circle - the deep friendship connections that help men live longer, happier lives – 22% longer in fact. We’re here to change that through an always growing program of virtual and in-person opportunities that help forge the bonds that are key to fulfillment, health and longevity.

What is expected of me?

Just show up when you can. We offer many ways to connect, and we’re here to help you find the one that’s right for you! The more you connect, the more you’ll receive in support, connection and growth. An easy start is our free weekly virtual meeting – a zoom link and 75 minutes is all you need.

What am I going to get out of it?

Some days you’ll give and some days you’ll get – but you’ll always find connection and support.

Get Started!

Weekly Virtual Meeting

Not sure this is for you? We weren’t always either. That’s why we encourage you to just show up.

Join us online Wednesday nights from 7:30 - 8:15 pm CST (our Home Sweet Home just happens to be Chicago). Expect to give us just 75 minutes – that’s less than half the length of an NFL game – and get some great conversation.

What Comes Next:

We’ve got lots to offer from online communities to specialized groups to retreats. And we’re here to get involved with what you’re passionate about.

But it all starts at that first meeting.

Join the Meeting

Virtual. Open to All. 

Monday Meditation

Join MenLiving Member, Shaun Emerson, online every Monday morning at 6:30am CST for a meditation & mindfulness session.  Relax, focus and prepare yourself for the workday. Or go deeper by exploring who you are and who you want to be in the energy of a supportive community.
Each of us is looking for a path back to the present.
