What to expect at Meditation?
The session lasts 30 minutes, but is designed for you to stay as long as your time allows or as fits your current practice. No one should feel bad about having to leave before the 30 minutes expires.
If you uncertain about the idea of meditation, we want you to think about this half hour as a quiet sit and a chance to prepare yourself for the day and week ahead.
This time is open to anyone: man, woman or child so send the invite to others.

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.
