Who is Erik Treese?

Heart-centered, mission-driven!  Dad of 4 Daughters and Initiator of Men.  My mission is to create a safe and healthy world by leading with consciousness, with vulnerability, and with grit.  I have decades of experience helping men and women from diverse backgrounds and experiences do their personal                                                                      growth and addiction recovery                                                                    work.

MenLiving
I am a long time MenLiving member and I also have the honor of serving on the Board of the Directors.   For the past 2 years I have co-lead our annual MenLiving Men’s Retreat and occasionally lead the Monthly MenLiving Meetings.   My connections with men in MenLiving are some of the most important relationships in my life!

Family
For 15 years I have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with an incredible woman and family physician on Chicago’s west side.  We parent 4 amazing daughters age 3-13.  They are by far my greatest teachers, and they have helped me get in touch with my inner feminine.  My role as their father has been to love, serve, teach, listen and hold space, and support them to live empowered lives as their inspired selves.

Men’s Work and Leadership Development
I have over 20 years of leadership experience with the ManKind Project, an international men’s organization that fosters emotional literacy and personal missions for men.  As a certified Co-Leader, I have led over 50 of the hallmark MKP offerings called The New Warrior Training Adventures, all over North America.  As a Certified Leader-Trainer, I am also responsible for teaching and mentoring the next generation of MKP leaders.

Jump on Board as a Member

Our vision is to live in a more harmonious world by deepening connections amongst men.

MenLiving was created in 2012 to create a community of men to give and get support from one another. I believe that when a man is connected to himself and other men that it has a ripple effect into his relationships, parenting, community, and beyond.

This is the foundation of what we do- create a space for men to connect with one another on a deeper level. So I invite you to jump on board and help us live in a more harmonious world - one man at a time.
